“Benedict was a real sweet, cool guy, which makes our job all that much easier,” says Morris of his shoot with the younger Samuel brother (p148). “Big things to come for this lad, I reckon.” Couldn’t agree more.
SO, ANY POINTERS FOR TAKING BETTER PHOTOS?
Use something other than a phone.
MAKES SENSE. WHAT ABOUT BREAKING INTO THE INDUSTRY?
Shoot what you love as often as you can. Schools and courses can be a good place to learn the basics, and assisting your contemporaries gives you a great insight into the realities of the job.
WHAT KIT DO PEOPLE NEED TO GET STARTED?
Not much, and it’s so affordable these days. Get yourself a camera, lens, laptop and software, and you’re underway.
WHAT DO YOU USE?
For personal work, I’ll still shoot film on my Mamiya ‘RZ67’. It’s a much slower, more considered way of shooting, but rewarding in the end. Commercially I shoot on a digital Canon ‘EOS-1DS Mark III’, and I stick to the one prime 50mm lens most of the time.
