Video Research – Behind the Scenes

I recently came across an amazing Editorial Fashion/Portrait Photographer by the name Clay Cook (for more information on him go view my last post). Below are a couple of his behind the scenes videos at various shoots, including on location, and studio.

I find watching tutorials like these very helpful to my development as an artist and photographer. Seeing how the photographer relates and directs the models, has chosen the lighting setup in regard to the locations, and how the photographer has set up the shoot as a whole. I find these aspects challenge my thinking towards planning my own shoots, exploring differing avenues and in developing a concept for my projects.

Article Research #2

Annie Leibovitz, Photographer (1949–)

Portrait Photographer Annie Leibovitz was born on October 2, 1949, in Waterbury, Connecticut. In 1967, Leibovitz enrolled at the San Francisco Art Institute, where (although initially studying painting) she developed a love for photography.

In 1970 she landed a job at Rolling Stone and went on to create a distinctive look for the publication as chief photographer. In 1983 she began working for the entertainment magazine Vanity Fair, continuing to produce images that would be deemed iconic and provocative. Having also worked on high-profile advertising campaigns, Leibovitz’s images have been showcased in several books and major exhibitions around the world.

After living briefly on an Israeli kibbutz, the statuesque Leibovitz returned to the U.S. and applied for a job with the start-up rock music magazine Rolling Stone in 1970. Impressed with Leibovitz’s portfolio, which included an image of counter-culture icon Allen Ginsberg, editor Jann Wenner offered her a job as a staff photographer. Within two years, the 23-year-old Leibovitz was promoted to chief photographer, a title she would hold for the next decade.

While with Rolling Stone, Leibovitz developed her trademark technique, which involved the use of bold primary colors and surprising poses, as seen with a 1979 Bette Midler cover inspired by the rock music film The Rose. Leibovitz is credited with making many Rolling Stone covers collector’s items, including an issue that featured John Lennon curled around his wife, Yoko Ono. Taken on December 8, 1980, Leibovitz’s Polaroid of the former Beatle was shot just hours before his death.

In 1983, Leibovitz left Rolling Stone and began working for Vanity Fair. With a wider array of subjects, Leibovitz’s photographs for the magazine ranged from presidents to literary icons to teen heart-throb.
