This episode of the music photo podcast means a lot to me. Tim was one of the earliest music photographers that I followed online. Before I even started photography I would look at his stuff and wish that I could make pictures like he did.
I've followed Ed's work for a long time now. The cool thing about this episode is that it finally gave me a chance to reach out and get in touch. In this session we talk about his experiences working as a professional music videographer. In particular, shooting and all the things that can go wrong on a given day, balancing people's perceptions with...
Warwick is an interesting character. Super enthusiastic, works hard, not afraid to take a leap of faith and the proud owner of a beard that could some day rival dumbledore. Since moving from Ulladulla on the south coast of New South Wales, he's accomplished a whole lot and seems to level up every time we talk.
Ben Wrigley is a really interesting guy. In many ways I relate to him as a business kid doing photography instead of the other way around. For someone who has been in the game for such a short period of time, he's really made a real impact on the Australian music scene.
At first glance you might say that there are a heap of people doing the super detailed "HDR" style of band photos. Ben's pictures though, are much more than that. They are dark, cinematic and so sharp you might lose an eye, and yet still very clean and vibrant. This is where others fall down (in my opinion) and create pictures that are dirty and somewhat less timeless.
I admire Georgia in so many ways. At 19 years old she's someone who really chases it which really sets her apart from the pack. I reckon it's probably her DIY, learn as you go attitude that can account for her successes. It could also be that not studying photography in a formal way means she's not constrained by the rules that tend to hold people back. Either way, she slays and you should definitely have her on your radar.
