I filmed this film on the 7D for my graduate documentary class. As I began to study cinematography a few years back, I became fascinated with the history of photography, especially, but not limited to, high fashion photography.
Photographer’s Style was filmed/edited in the style of the ASC produced “Cinematographer Style”. Photography is such an interesting art, and I wanted to merely learn more about it, opposed to telling a story in the traditional sense. I also didn’t want to get to bogged down with the technical side of photography, but rather the STYLE of each photographer, and how they approach their subjects.
In my studies, I’ve learned that artistic success in photography and cinematography, and in all art, isn’t tied to technical knowledge alone, but rather heavily determined by the unseen passion, inner turmoil, and vision of the artist.
If a person learns something that they didn’t know before watching this film, then I will have done my job.
