Photopainting and Photography: The Interview

with one comment

I had the honor of being interviewed by Paige from her ever popular equine blog: The Equinest.  The Equinest runs  a regular artist interview and portfolio sampling, from some the best equine artists in the country. I had fun answering her questions, sharing some work and insights, and just being in the company of some great artists! Thanks again Paige! Here’s an excert and you can view the entire interview here.

“Who are your main influences?
My early influences were the great documentary photographers…Eugene Smith, Dorothea Lange, Robert Frank, Eugene Richards. Others include Joel Meyerowitz, Joyce Tenneson, Richard Avedon, Gordon Parks, Sally Mann, Man Ray. I am a huge fan of Keith Carter. Gordon Parks is probably the greatest renaissance man of the 20th century. I really admire photographers such as Meyerowitz who’s work goes everywhere from street photography to fine art.

Your work encompasses more than just horses, what is your favorite subject?
Tough question. I really enjoy different types of work for different reasons. Photographing horses however is truly sublime. Being outside in nature with gorgeous, powerful, muscular, fascinating, photogenic animals is really hard to beat. My other favorite subject is my five-year-old son.”
