My favorite things in life are shooting, spending time with friends and teaching. (And eating cheese and chocolate!) So what can I do to bring this all together with one of my favorite people in the world? I am very excited to announce that I will be filming an online show with (framed) [F] Network alongside one of my best friends, Brooke Shaden. Her work is incredible, and though we are very different people with very different styles, we connected deeply on life and photography.
Last year Brooke and I went into the middle of the desert and both created images side by side. I shot fashion, she shot fine art, and we used the same model and location. We find it fascinating how the same ingredients can yield such different results based on the cook. We turned our experiences into a video, and have been asked by [F] Network to do a show called "The Concept". At the beginning of each show Brooke and I will be given a surprise envelop with a concept to shoot inside, and we will turn it into photo magic! Each one will shoot our own styles and create drastically different styles. The show will air later this year, and while filming the show we are hosting a workshop at my studio.
This has been something I have been looking forward to since we first discussed the idea. I can't wait to help demonstrate to photographers the idea of style and that there are always MANY correct solutions to a photographic challenge. 😀 Watch for the video. I'm going to love it, and I hope you will too! Below is a little trailer for the pre-production phase in case you guys want to help assist or attend our combined workshop in NYC.
Take a look below at the video Brooke and I created during our desert shoot last year!
