I just did another interview. I do a fair amount of these things. I enjoy doing them. I think I MIGHT have something relevant to add, otherwise I would not do them. When someone asks I have to question myself as to whether or not I have something to add. For example, if someone wanted to talk tech or gear, at this point, I wouldn’t bother even though I know that the interview would get more traffic than any I’ve done. It’s just not an interesting conversation in my mind. However, when someone is asking about something I might have a good angle on, well, then I’m game.
Today’s interview was good. It was mostly me talking but that is the technique the filmmaker was after. My voice with B-roll over the top. And the topics were good. Past, present, and future of photography, my history as well as what I’ve learned from being a Blurb field person for the last ten years. In short, I’ve learned A LOT. And, I’ve learned things that can really help others which is the best thing I can do at this point. I don’t like to see struggling photographers. I don’t like to see lazy industry folks channeling everyone into the same funnels. I don’t like to see a misinformed public.
If you want to know what my view was like, here it is. Beer and religion.
