"I want people to sort of feel that I'm human just like they are. And that they can trust me. And I want them to feel confident in me that what I'm going to ask them to do, which is hang upside down on a tree for a family photo. They're going to be like, okay, it's just debo. He's asking for it. So those stories are told by the trust and rapport that we build with our clients. And that happens from the first phone call to the very first email all the way through the process. And in that entire space, you're telling a story. So you always have to have your eye on that space. How do I tell your story so that when you see your photographs, not only does it have an everlasting capacity to it, but you can see something in yourself that you might not have seen before. And that storytelling and the crux of it all. But that's a perfect idea. And looking at it through the lens of weddings or family photos or engagement shoots. It's one thing, but what about boudoir type photography? Does the storytelling idea does that thread weave its way through your boudoir boudoir work as well? Yeah, because I don't do traditional boudoir. In fact, I don't even call it boudoir. It's intimate storytelling is what we call it. Interesting. Yeah, and I craft scenarios for all of my clients. So mine is more of like being on a theater set with me. And we pick out the outfits ahead of time, and we create a storyline. I just did a candid marriage proposal, I'm sorry, boudoir session for a couple. And we created this whole storyline centered around how they dated and how they first met, which was at a really high end whisky bar. So we actually had them go get ready on two separate hotels. And then he went and picked her up for the date. I'm tagging along in the back seat like the creepy stalker. We went to the whisky bar and I arranged all this in advance. So the whisky bar knew I was coming, but the whole session was their story of how they met. And then we went to a parking deck and then we went back to the hotel and the lights went out and the cameras went on. It was just like, and their entire session. It's not standing over here posing. It's a series of events that unfolded in the story of how they met. And in that space, I'm sort of behind the scenes coaching them and asking them to do things or kiss things here, take a bra off here, that sort of stuff. But it's still, and when you see their stories, like you can see the chronology of everything that went on, and then they get to relive that for the rest of their lives together. Yeah. So yeah, everything is everything's a story. Literally everything. I think that's really important work. You know, there's. I don't want to, what's the word I'm looking for controversy or whatever. Around anything that has to do anything with seductive or nudity or anything like that in the photographic world, right? I look at what you're doing like boudoir or how your marketing it as it's important work because it is recording people could probably be their best. At that point in time, they're never going to look, even the next day. They're not going to look like that. And if something happens, God forbid, you know, then they may never look like that again, but you're doing a visual record of this person with the height of their energy. You're capturing that and then presenting it back to them in this flawless. I'm guessing, you know, knowing you for the short time that I've known you, I'm guessing the presentation is very amazing, right? When they come and pick up their photos or they get the pack, I'm sure it's an apple like experience, right? It's wine and charcuterie plate with all the bells and whistles in between. So absolutely. That's awesome. I think your point is a good point. I would like to add one more point to that. You know, no matter what your age or how you look, you're physically how you look. And you're in your prime or not in your prime, because I photographed 60 year old women and the underlying theme of what we do is not coming at it from just my perspective, but understanding what the client wants out of this and meeting them in the middle with your art and their vision and your vision and creating that for them. Because no matter how old you are or how unfit you are, how fit you might be at the end of the day, everybody still wants to sort of feel special. And our photography, our work enables that for them to sort of feel special for that brief moment in time. And so our job is to create an experience or a scenario and photography and video so that they have something to hold on to, but more importantly, in their heart, they have that experience that they went through with you. And what that does, interestingly enough, is they become your raving fans. And those are the people that promote you to their friends and to their family and to anyone else that they encounter because if you had a brilliant experience with me and you got brilliant photography about it and then you hear your Friends talking about hey, I just got engaged and looking, dude, I know this one cat Devo. Like this is what he does. And 50 to 60% of my business comes from organic leads like that. And it's because I don't focus on I don't focus on building a portfolio. I don't focus on capturing just one really good photo. I focus on connecting with my clients and building something for them that is sort of like a lasting legacy in their hearts. I know what you're doing here, debo. I know what you're doing. You're building the boudoir. No, you're building the Devo cinematic universe over there. That's what it's not called meta. That's cool. You know, I say that tuck and cheek, but I think it's true. A lot of photographers and people I talk to kind of look at this, be like, this one photographer, Steve Richard, he's up in up in Canada, Newfoundland. I think. And he was telling me during our interview that he operates under a personal dogma, right? So, you know, dogma is a set of beliefs that you adhere to, yada, yada yada, right? So he applies his personal dogma to his work. Like things that would, you know, other photographers would be like, you're insane. I'm not gonna retouch any of my photographs. I'm gonna meticulously light them to get the light that I want. If I see a bump, I'm gonna light the other side of that bump to make it go away. You know, he's that level. And his work is just ridiculous. And even the themes of his work are mythology, mythology and Greek and there's a lot of nudity in there, but it's almost, it's painterly type stuff, right? It's really, really amazing. And once you know his story, that gives the weight the work even more weight because you know the work that he went through and the constraints that he puts on himself in order to get that level of work that's beyond anyone that has, you know, the creative suite and this and that and could do all the things, you know, sky replacement, et cetera, we can do all the things and he's like, nope, I'm not doing any of that. I'm gonna shoot in and that's it. And he's even, he's even in that camp of doing limited edition type work where I'm gonna shoot this I'm gonna do this shot and I'm only gonna make ten prints of it and then I'm gonna destroy the digital file and do all the things kind of like the original NFT, right? And then hand that out. So what's his name? Steve Richard. It's like Richard, but pronounced Richard. I'm gonna check him out. That's next level stuff.

"I look, we have an update on the somerton man. Let's not get, let's not get ahead of ourselves, professor Abbott. Gonna lead team of private detectives. What are balloons are aliens? Maybe that's the key component we're missing. Cover ups. John's guilty. Mysteries that need to be solved. Maybe Mormon, Steve. Richard, shut up. I don't know if you guys remember professor Abbott from the episode. Yeah. He was the guy that obsessed with the somerton man, like he thought that some guy, I guess they were spies and they had a kid, and then he disappeared, then he married the granddaughter of the guy. He thought was the somerton man. Remember this guy, this professor? Yes. Yeah, and then he was doing like DNA testing. He's trying to get the body exhumed. So we could do DNA testing to see if he was right. Well, he did something. I think he figured out who the summerton man was. That's about it though. Nothing surrounding the why he had that thing sewn into his pants. It's not so, then. He's basically just figured out a name. Exactly. There's not really a solved. Get the fuck out of your Abbott. Yeah. The best part about the whole solve is the case. So he was going to get the whole body exhumed. The south Australian police did exhume it, but didn't give Derek Abbott, you can't come and go do that. We're going to do this for the police. So that is still happening as we talk right now. And I don't know if I'm going to do an update beyond today. Maybe if they actually come up with something groundbreaking when the police actually give the report, maybe we'll do another one. But as of right now, the police haven't given the report. But do you remember they made a bust of the summerton men? At a faster? Yes. In the episode I talked about how there was some hair that was stuck in the bust from the summerton man. So Derek Abbott got some of that hair and did some DNA tests himself. How the hell did he do that? Like Mission Impossible fucking Tom Cruise. He got permission. Like he put in all the requests to get it yet. Yeah, so he got that. And he just basically did it through like gene. 23andMe. They basically have that now. 23andMe, but for like police, but you have to upload your own. 23andMe won't give you their fucking your DNA. So don't worry, Rick. Whatever 23 of me you did, your identity as of whatever murder, whatever you do on the off time safe. You have to take your wait. Where they were acquired by someone else. 23andMe? Yeah. Yeah, probably. But there's still there's still offer anonymity to it.
"steve richards" Discussed on Inside Supercars
"Welcome to insider cars, Tony went on great grill and we're going by a man who's been in the panic quite from years. I've known John Moore in various geysers. First of all, Larry birkins and then through Bigfoot and Steve Richards team and now he has been at the same 19 for three years the first is approaching and stepping into the role as the same manager as well. Welcome Jon through inside supercars. Thanks, Dan. Thanks for having me, mate. Maybe we'll talk about a little bit about your background and the history and motor sport. Was there a history there for you? So I grew up doing go karts as a kid. There was myself, my dad, and my sister, racing back in back in the late 80s, always been around motor sport. That had a big passion for motor sporting style. Mechanic by trade. He. Was always out in the garage, you know, doing some funny repairs on his row cars and things like that, which led me obviously to start my apprenticeship afford dealership. Where I did four years of that and then I had a friend of mine who actually worked for John faulkner. Back in back in the day, he tried to get me on board. He said, you've got to try this out. This Zipcar thing is really good. And from there, I did a volunteer work for a small team, Jeff Mark Henry. He was a star brick owner back in the day and basically I did some volunteer work and then eventually it led me into a full time position in supercar started with Larry Perkins. I reckon back in a specific remember the years that when there was basically three of the Castro cars you had students who had pulled umbrella. As well, there was a customer car and Tony LongHorn kind of started as a number two mechanic on Chinese car back in the day. And that would of course be the revenue airport. Yeah, Adam and Robin may, I'm brought on the airport, like the planes one over and it's definitely experienced great to work with Larry Larry's a very knowledgeable man. He's one of the idols for me. So back in the days, I remember watching him on tally with my dad waking up for that first every morning and to actually work for him. I think it was really good guard experience that we went through there. Yeah, like I said, I was there for 5 years and that was great. And of course, when you were there, you would have been well and truly in line of the idea that if you couldn't be an aircraft mechanic, learning in a Volkswagen workshop was the best thing to becoming a race car mechanic. So they were Larry's and Steve Richards and guys like to see Henderson, who you were succeed now at teenagers. These are all people that were your early in your foundation zone. Yeah, they were. Yeah, I got a chance to see step up as the number one on Richard Carr. Which I'll leave for a couple of years. Great, great man, Stephen Richards. We got along really well and had some really good results. The best one I remember was over at Perth. We basically did a client claim to the way game that was really good really enjoying. And yeah, it went and we paid out over there as well. And that's what we've actually started there. We met each other. And yeah, like I said, we still take something in here and each other here and there in different icings and then finally obviously ended up here. They come on board at the start of 2020 and here.

"Comfortable where you wouldn't have been. Great bennett has an advantage. But i don't think in my opinion you're gonna learn much compared to working almost one on one with with a with a saga for an for example and on not trying to promote my workshops. Arena belts workshops for my philosophy but he did ask me the questions. I'll tell you mike. Philosophy in a workshop is is. I won't take any more than six people. I only let one person shoot at a time and and and that way we all get to of listen in when they have a question. When i'm explained them i'm also explaining everybody else and and a lot of times the person will either esa question or they'll do something that no one have thought to ask not even myself thought about it and everybody gets to learn something really important but for me. I wouldn't do it any other way. in fact i'm starting to so this this is gonna sound really bad shit crazy. I've even get to the point of trying to get it down to four people in in particular works you shop. of the economics are brutal at that point but other than there's a workshop. We've already booked in montreal any workshop after this. I'm not even let anybody keep images so you coming workshop. We take me just maybe on camera. But if you're there to get portfolio immigrants your. They're totally for the wrong reason. It's not that's not a here so everything would have to be deleted. And i would maybe send out some images for reference With notes on them. But but if you're there if you're an a workshop to To get portfolio images than i think you're there for the wrong reason. That's not a workshop anymore. That's the photo greedy. Or a shoe events in and why are they even portfolio women's. They're not your image. Push the button on so you know so. So yeah so. That's kind of my philosophy. But i am not trying to should on anybody else's teaching. That's that's not my cat letter or this is just the way i look at the world ticket pieces that make sense to you. Love it. I love it and we'll end. It will end it right there. Steve rashard thank you for taking the time to do this. Always closure and now people that have watched this video understand why i'm haunted by steve show off won't let go go. He's only non steve. I've got to europe up on the screen here. Is that the best place for for folks for the folks that are listening to the audio version. It's steve rashard or steve. Richard worthy dot com right.

"Help. Maybe i'll end with this story. But sometimes when i teach workshops cuts in fact i would go up to the arnold for Every time the flash goes off on what you rock this beautiful post. Just do stuff and i would set the camera to do automatic at one frame a second or whatever and i looked like i was controlling all. Yeah all beautiful and everybody in the would be watching them. A looking at the screen and i keep saying yan and then i literally walk away from the cameron keep saying in eventually could walk out of the room and after a while people start to notice. I wasn't even at the carrots. And it's funny because you'd come back and look at the images on the screen and they'd all be Of a beautiful girl posing. And i would say what i have to do. This was there any intention to resist. Have anything to do with me. And of course it didn't any. The camera. did all the decisions the model did all the work I always find it really funny. If if you're going to be fine are neutral talker. Use that term book molly book. A studio and you're gonna do is push the by. Well why wouldn't you just go have coffee in the so So i think the approach for me would be to to to work with people who do get the concept if that's what you're interested in and and and and let yourself be wrong for awhile it's okay let let people explain to you. Let learn a bit and fail a bit and it's okay to walk shoot with no exceptional images. Just maybe some ideas that is it. Is it better or maybe it depends is the answer but is it better to to go to a workshop that has you know half a dozen photographers' shooting a model with an instructor or is it better perspective for the photographer to say you know it. Fellow steve's advice. I'm going to go find an experienced fine. Art nude model in work with her one on one to collaborate on a story or is it both does it have to be an or can be an a. Yeah maybe so for me. It can't so i. I want to look On anybody's photography workshops. That's not my intent whatsoever. On just i'll tell you what i feel is is not a good workshop and so if if walking in with fifteen people all taking pictures of the same model poison in all your in you're not directing right and you're you're not tuning and and controlling but if all you're doing is sitting there with everybody else taking the pitcher. I'm not sure how much you're learning. I think that just becomes an experienced and that might be the if that's what you're interested in that's fine so if you're interested that photography experience and if that makes you comfortable this is your first time working with for example. A new team l. model in this makes you.

"Says it fairly well. Yeah definitely and you know. What's yeah so and i thought it so. She was bitter. Of course an an. I choose to ignore it all. I just choose to so for example you can have A magazine store with a with a fhm magazine. You know girl leaner breasts up at looking at the camera very sexually. But you can't have one of my images and and i just think that's pretty nuts isn't one extremely sexual in the intent is without question sexual. And then the other side. There's just one that might have a nipple in it of female in the book of meal nipples allowed and not allowed for example not allowed on facebook focused not allowed instagram and whereas the other one would be and i thought well this is a very strange world just ignored. I'm gonna just ignore it because it's not a battle you can fight when i can't stand up backs and say that's wrong you know. Give me Give me my freedom back. I mean it's important. So yeah people. With buckets of money have tried one hundred annualise buckeye. I'm kind of driven to do what i do. I love what i do. And i think what it is. It's important to me. And so if it fits into certain parts of the world or dozen really. Don't shit and it's also that's why don't even care what it's called but i i. I usually don't call myself actually. Don't say should find nude for fear of someone's just gonna google and and and most of the time when it brings up. Is you know it depends on your point of view but it can be pretty pretty significantly bad and So it's a tough question. it's probably dialogue. You could also spend a week on along with what's price of our at. You know what what makes a fine art new. What's what what's definition of at and Yeah i just once again Hitting the santa. Don't even go there. It's not worth Discussion beyond yeah. No i agree i agree. Yeah in focus on what's important to you and just keep get rilling that As we as we wrap it up here. I wanted this Taking direction of education so a lot of the photographers that are watching this and a lot of them that are in the community Loved shoot the genre of photography and wanna get better at it. How what are some tips from you to sort of move in the direction of leaving if you're already you're already competent at this art form but you wanna get excellent at it. How do you move in. The direction of excellence will thanks one. I would slow down and so if you walk in with the philosophy of look. I'm going to get an idea today. Not even an image today. I'm after an idea and allow yourself to fail. So if you if you could walk into any environment i don't know every season i know very little in fact so you know. I like playing with the improver krueger curb all time. Brilliant psychologists that fully understood this. This you know the the you know a little bit about something. You totally overestimate how much you know an awful service by doing dining krueger by trip pretending i know anything down so a lot of people are afraid to say look. I don't know very much like this today. I just wanted to learn more. And that's the number one thing and then to go in and say look. Failing is wonderful. I you know. I would shoot in my studio almost every day. Most days were failures. Meaning i didn't end up with this world class same age but i ended up with an idea or ended up discovering Wasn't gonna work but my work. I do this change. And i think my number one advice would be to to walk into a shoot. Let everybody know that. Hey this is a creative day. Even if you've hired a model in hired a studio say look on. It's not important that i create this image today. What's is i. Create the ability to learn something to discover something to maybe an already is curly. That has more potential for you to create acceptable image than any other way. 'cause now you're open you're you're not close and fighting any creativity so that's number one. The number two thing. I think would be you know. Take take some workshops or lessons from people that i think get the concept so from artists and in fact my recommend my inspiration is very rarely That comes from artists. It comes from colorado. It comes from appear It comes from frederick j watson Enough configuring watts. It comes from home. Herbert draper comes from you. Know artists said that are totally about telling her story or their stories. And i find that much better place for inspiration so i think those things and then if if you're really kind of wung working nude genre and you don't know how to work with models at much higher a model. That's that's really a good finer model and tell them we haven't got a clue and pay them to help you. Communicate pay them to. Maybe you know. Come up with the story and work together to say. How would we create this story without you posing in meat. Just pushing. Twelve frames a second. What i call him monkey mode and and having that you know be be the the.

"Focusing my magnifying glass. On the piece of paper to burn a hole in it right there versus heating up the whole sheet of paper. I think there's liberation in that you know i agree actually. There's a huge liberation in it. So i've come up through the normal. You know go to a shoot you know and take twenty five thousand images and then hope one of these worked out and and or even earlier i go to a shoot in take twenty five thousand images and thank twenty five thousand which is really good fact when none of them were any good So you know. I've i've certainly Nineteen seventy-three I had a bumpy road as anybody else and learned a lot of lessons and still have a lot to figure out. But but for me is when i started off when when when i really take the approach of. I'm not really. I'm not really photographer. artists. I'm trying to tell storm trying to create this moment. That's really about me. The differences in my process. I i allow that to To develop wine even creating the work so so for example i might start off shoot and say oh i really want this darkness. I want this to be about the the inner streets by make up all. But but maybe loss and i'm going to have it so you know you're saying mike have a model might say i'm gonna have it so you're really you're really powerful but you're looking at the empty chair as if this is a this is kind of a metaphor for a sense of loss. And then i'll be working on. This working list will be doing the same thing going through the process insane. That same age definitely is much better. I think what you body language a better if we just moved your shoulder a little bit and turn the hand. So the gesture really meant something and the mon- will do something ago. Wait why that's way better than everything we've done so far my like what you've just holy shit now it's all about power and it's about not loss but it's about maybe you're you're this emptiness your choice and on my my brain will go off. This is way better and and just start again and the same thing the differences. I have my dog mattis. I know what body language line. I'm going to use the lighting's going to be. I know what level of anonymity although sings. I don't have to some around with because it's part of my personal dogma. But i'm not afraid to change in you know in mid direction to go. Oh now now. We're we're going so i knew we were going east but now we're going so and some days you know we do go north and then south in the north and south Right back at the starting spot and end up nowhere. But usually i end up with an idea and somewhere to start again at the next time. You know what that sounds a lot like. That sounds like the scientific method in in science. You you you you test. The hypothesis is if it works. Do more of that thing. it's it's true. Yep and accept this little science. I think in psychology. I don't know the thing. Yeah you know. I'm interested Interested to get your thoughts on this stigma around the the nude photography or the fine art nude photography industry on the one hand. we have influx of the. You know some photographers that come in with with varying motivations for taking photos of nude or scantily clad women some nefarious reasons. Some justified reasons And then the spectrum from left to right all the way from creep all the way through you know high end fine art photographer where you said. So how. How do you reconcile the perception the stigma around photographing the nude body for you know as hypocritical as it is right the photographing the nude body. And keep yourself out of the bucket of those guys that we call the gw right guy with cam in. How does that work for you. Most the time. I bury my head in the sand. And don't think about it but you're right in. I started off the conversation. It's why i don't even like to use the word find our nude. Because it's it's true. I shoot fine are create finer images and ninety nine percent time with a new body by if you use that definition to search out. Find our dog raphy You you'll end up with ninety percent of pictures of beautiful things and in most cases. And i just think well that's not really what i do. So what the questions is pretty easy to weeded out and say well what was the. What was the intent of shoot was for the talk for as the worst-case at gw see to to be in the room with naked women or men or whatever it is. You're you're interested in and and just so you can take photographs of them. I mean while. I guess yeah that whatever. But that's that's not even really what that so. That's on the extreme. That's not that's not even talk a few rate. That's more of a fetish. It's more of a. I don't know what the word voyeurism yep so and then then there's a lot of people that so this doesn't necessarily apply to naked bodies apply to cars Trees could buy anything. And i don't mean this impatience. I mean this documenting beautiful subjects so a lot of people would find an nude bodies and beautiful subject and they go in documentum and that's fine as well but but there's no intent. There's no self there there's no there's no you haven't put yourself in the image not trying to say anything. All you're trying to do is capture a document and that's a real craft and there's nothing wrong with that whether it's a girl and boy tree or car but for me that's really starting to get to this definition of photography and for me i move way past that I'm an artist. I like to tell stories create moments if you wish of at to kind of set Metaphors in place. And i love to do with the human body not unlike artists for thousand years or more and and so. It's not a new subject one. I do certainly isn't new. So i'm gonna to give you an. I can't remember her name but This is a bit of a story. I used to check my website stats every month and now i check it every year but i used to check my website In one month. I got this huge hit from a blog. I think it was called pretty in pink and the woman that wrote this law was a model used to be immortal in. She did this whole blog about a finer news. And i wish.

Most part that she had modeled a great deal as a finer nude-model and most of the time she said basically. It's it's it's just awful. It's people just taking pictures of new girls. Bring the black and white and calling them finer and she had this beautiful of phrase. That i i even if you don't mind i'd like to use this in presentations. And and her catchphrase was Mood is photography. What the dirty limerick is to poetry. And i thought that.

"Save. You can buy his if not. It's not important to me to the. I think you niller had just because the technology allows you to do something doesn't mean it's necessarily ripe for you to do it and i think for me. The philosophy is really simple. All i love the idea that i've created this one thing and there only one of it that physically exists and and to me that just it just makes me feel right. So that's what i'm gonna do. I admit there's some there's some series of for example in the area book. There's five images that we did a kickstarter. For the book we released five images of these five images and But the rest of the rest of the book is one and this new series working on methods. Same thing. it's it's one only one image will be printed And so i you know maybe maybe have this loss of you to think. In order to be an artist you have to take our poverty and and i say that jokingly but also not jokingly and what i mean by that is i don't want to be focused on. Oh jeez i can solve five hundred copies of this print that you know i. I'm really focused on creating the work. That's all that's important for me in an end and i have to create a piece that really is is. It's part of part of me. Part of what i do and what i found is i've migrated to this. Creating one of one is the thing that that just kind of solidifies it. It's it's the foundation that that makes me feel really great about it. Nine can't see ever changing it now. Yeah yeah and that's the process something that that even even you saying. Those words inherently adds value to the work because people that are buying they can hear that echoing in the work and like i this thing for some reason is heavier it has yet to it that an ordinary print wouldn't because i know that this is i have it. You know this is the only one of this. And i haven't had the commitment from steve rashard that this is the only one will be the only one that i'll print. So here's what here's what's interesting. I think is it. I mean for me this is this is important to have this one of one but but it doesn't i don't think it makes the work more or less valuable in a way. The you know this is this is a discussion that would go on. We could probably spend a week talking about this but when you look at art and you look at what makes really good arch and then you look at what makes really expensive are what makes our valuable a lot of times other somewhat independent of each other and and i think i've never been so the motivation for me wasn't making the image more valuable. Yeah without question. That's wonderful if you can talk bill gates into give me a great deal of money. Pick any of the remaining prints of area for example. Happy happy to the ship. Great big but at the end of the day. that's not. That's not the reason. I didn't do this to make the are more valuable. I did this to just anchor. What i do and that. That's really the only reason. And if the spinoff it's that the art is more valuable rate but the marketing side is is a cloud that that i usually just confuses me i don't spend a lot of time in it and and and i would be the worst person in the world to take marketing advice from while the mighty worth. I'm not sure but you know maybe my cat. Maybe i think my cat were probably offered better advice so interesting. There's some politicians. I can think of that. You probably would get. But i so for me. It's it's you know. I just didn't want to go down that road of marketing whether this image is worth more or less you know because that really wasn't the motivation whatsoever in fact and i'm not even sure you don't have this session with many of my friends saw prints they'd sell limited edition and we add this as addition size matter and blah blah blah. And you know what really matters if you're trying to make a lotta money with your photography is to market it properly and spend a lot of time and effort and an an higher really good people to market your product Yeah and i think that's way more important than deciding whether it's one of one or one of ten or whatever that is that that's not really relevant you know in everyone's motivations are different right so yeah yeah so we're going to see this man. Maybe this is the cop out part but my favorite thing about presenting insane enough in front of wednesday look. I'm not really talk. Harming artists and everything i say is just my opinion so take the pieces that make sanson throw all rest away. There's no laws of physics. This is just as just me rambling on. So there's a real beauty in that as i can actually be reckless in a way. I don't it's not like i'm outing anything. That's that means anything to anybody but me and the pieces that make sense to anybody else. So that's wonderful but it's not really any truth you know it's not really any Kind of like said marketing wisdom already like that. It's just just the way. I look at the world. That's all but it but it is. I think it's pertinent. And i think it's helpful Because it it. The exercise in constraints. I think helps a lot in a lot of lot of ways liberating for a lot of people. You know where you're doing. Let's say you're doing. It's a photographer. And he's doing a model shoot. There's the pressure of okay. I to get a bunch of images and let's do twelve different poses an outfit changes and let's bring them makeup artist on do three different looks and you know indoor outdoor wet not wet mud. You know all that stuff so that you can have a suite of images to sort of pick through in light room to find the one that works versus the steve rashard way of saying i'm after this image. After this one particular image and i'm going to obsess over getting that image to hell with everything else..

"Into that universe as you say it doesn't fit into that voice even if the story is a bit like i want what i'm wanting to say i still have to mold it and shape it fitted in so uncomfortable with it a fitting into the series which partly is crazy. But just the way i like to work. It's the process. It is your process. Which is you know. There's so much to talk about in one of the things that's kind of in my head. Was i think you had mentioned before when we were we. Were having a conversation about the idea of permanents right. And and i think what i had posed to you was. Hey this is we're in the digital world now like what you could create a million versions of of a particular print. Do you do that you know and you had a very intriguing answer to that. You remember that conversation. Yes and i've had this so it's interesting. So first of all when i when i create an image on shooting Are usually shoot with phase one and a half for the last ten or fifteen years. So tethered an anti shoot. Like a sculptor would sculpt you know so i i developed the image better time and i might work on the position of wrists in channon line and keep changing As soon as i get to a enemy. I think is better than the ones who created in the last half hour or whatever on algo in select everything previous to this new image and delete and in fact i. I love doing this in front of the internet's visiting so. If i'm ever working with an intern from one of the schools it's one of my favorite things to do is watch the their body language when i go up and grab all these images and hit the delete just their shock and horror at what i've just nine so so this process for me even that so this one that i now keep and i keep working to see if i can find tuna making story better. It's you know if i end up with a better image than that one. Then i'll delete everything except for this one and the only thing i'll keep maybe i'll keep up a one or two images that are if i can't decide i'll keep them as a backup in case i ever have a problem with this file before i get it even though shoot to arrayed before i get it off site backup and i however so to answer your question so so first of all. I'm only after one image usually from a shoot and it's an it's usually part of a series but when i released this image in print release since the book aerial which is a couple of years. Now i i create one print one sign print. It's one of one. And as soon as that sold it will never exist in print again it might exist in a book and it might exist in a digital form of course but it's only one print so i look i like what i do is i'm really out to create this one case of our physical case of our and once that's printed in owned or whatever it is it a set. There's only one. And i know that really sounds betcha crazy because technically that's it's not like i'm a painter and i painted one could press the print button as many times but i refused. That's that's not what i do. It's not what i'm creating. I'm creating intriguing because we're in the digital age right and everything zeroes in ones and you know things for better for worse or driven by money you know and create a steve rashard print that there is demand for and people want that. And you know here's a scenario. Ya elon musk. Founder of tesla spacex all these different companies says. Yeah i wanna steve shard print in my dining room on the wall. Boom and i know it has value because he says the only prints one. I've got one boom. I've got that it's on my wall and then let's say bill gates comes along and says you know what i liked that you think i want that one in my liver. That would look really nice in one of my living room. And so you. In that scenario you would say no. Would you say no or would you support. It's actually for me. Get hold of your.

"And it's this is a really long answer to your question in in a couple of parts and so there's what i call fundamental set rule saw use and then each serious i i work on has its own set of rules. Its own universe. If you wish so. I don't i don't have to call it. Universe i call it. I call it the Describe something that. I referred to as a personal dogma. So this is a set of rules that i apply to everything i create and apply them so rigidly. I won't allow anything through. That doesn't meet the set of rules. For example perfect body line is one of the things that that's really important to me. Perfect dance video line. If you look at any miami's you'll always see that feed are appointed a certain way. All the lines are really always drawing you back one way or another to the story where the stories happy. I really like darkness with a sense beauty. I i like to most partisans of anonymity so there's this whole set of things that i call a personal dogma. That's that scoble tried to everything. And then if i'm working on a particular series for example say say the upscale this series that we shot underwater. It has a few more laws physics if you wash a few more rules and create what i call a stage so it's not really universe kind of a stage or persona for the for the series and then everything has to fit in that persona. So what i don't do is i. I usually don't have a. I don't have a story board. Might have an idea of what the mood is. And what the moment is. I'm trying to create. But i but on the day of the shoot other than the lighting which i've usually worked out and the basic form and the basic shape and story. Then i create the image image with everybody and we started working bit at a time meticulously slowly and and it might take me a couple of days to get final image but most of the time. This final idea is inner to end the story forms that way but the universe is isn't that well the is excuse me the universe is really. The set of rules is personal dogma. And like i said it depends on the series itself. What does that get to where you're does. Yeah absolutely instead of being explicit about you know this is this universe in these are these characters in the universe in. let's move them around and put them like this. It's like you said it's it's like in the world of three d you know computer graphics you you define a set of rules That you know gravity is like this or the wind is like that and the lights from here in its of this color. And then you put stuff in that world and then you know it behaves at lead pertaining to those rules right and when and when it doesn't fit if it looks the neat thing about having such rigid dog like this. It's it's really easy to edit because if it doesn't fit it's just yells and screams at you so for example every time. We should've series unusually a series takes three to through tenures or whatever it depends so it developed. Its own voice. I wrap this set of dogma around the particular series and then for example. Go back to girl. We'd be shooting squirrel in. It'd be really nice image. But it's not a girl and i just deleted it because.

"That's for each person. And and for me. I fall into the you know what to get fred. So from an artist perspective i i fall into. I don't like to do any production. I certainly wouldn't let any decisions be made by a i or any other protests. And maybe maybe because maybe it's easier to describe it this way for me. The difference one of the main things that that define artists is the word intent. And for many. You have to have intent if i look at for example a painter or sculptor and you know every kind of brush stroke recovery chisel every everything that happens on that piece of our is done with intent even though some may be somewhat in a way random but it still has its intent behind it so for me. That's the number one thing is is it has to be has to be with intent. Every decision has to be within ten. And i i would find it very difficult to to use any type of ai or or non controllable system. Anything that's even has some randomness to it on any of my work because it would remove that intent. And i probably wouldn't feel like i had much to do with it. So that's that's number one the for me. The second part of weather I despised post production. I don't have any enjoyment. Sit in front of a computer. I love eating right in camera and get interest. I mean for me getting it right so you so. I do everything to get it in camera whether it's film and of course in the last fifteen years or so i've been shooting digital but it's still i get it in the shot and if i can't get it in that sean i won't accept the image but the irony is for example. You mentioned rene and and we were. I actually looked That's another artist. She's she. She does a lot of production but the irony. Is we both score after the exact same thing. We're both after creating this unique image. That's our that tells our story that that is about us. She just does a much different way than i do. And you know some. She'll spend hundred hours in post production and twenty minutes shooting. It now spend you know hundred hours dating right shooting at setting it up and and if i twenty minutes postproduction that just annoys. Should be like two. Minutes is way more than i'd like to do so for me. It really the process so there's really two parts. There's the process Which i think is his individual. But i think if you go back to rene and i again i think we both apply the same intent to our work so everything. That's in rene. Image is with her attacker. police Speaking for her. I don't i haven't asked her. This question are that might of. I don't remember. But but i. But i'm pretty sure that most artists put a great deal of intent in their work. And that's probably the thing for me that that is defining not not the process not the actual whether you use or not or you. Use post production filter researcher to me. That's just personal. And and i and i probably choose the extreme one-sidedness of avoiding any type of post production possible. Yeah it's interesting. See the when one of the things that we when our previous conversations one of the things you said that continues to haunt me to this day. Steve or is you were talking about the You said i'm paraphrasing. But you said something to the degree of anyone can take a photo of a pretty person But then you have to does. Is it just a pretty person. If you the swap that that person out for an average or unattractive person is it still a great photo photograph. That stuck with me. Because now i look at. That's why that haunts me. Because now i look at photos all over the place and i'm looking at these photos and like is that a great photo is that is it art. Is it a work of art or is it just a capturing a beautiful person that was blessed genetics. And i'll give you my my mantra my quote and it's funny 'cause anybody who's ever assisted for me. They probably would throw up if they hurt me so this they hear me say four hundred times a day but by i have this metro that really goes it. It's it's easy to take a picture of a beautiful thing. It's really difficult to take a beautiful picture entity even more difficult to realize the difference and you can replace beautiful with any any powerful you know exceptional because it really doesn't matter but most people go around and take pictures of exceptional things and and call it an exceptional photograph and sometimes it is sometimes that that photograph of an exceptional thing is an exceptional photograph. But that's not the measure you know correlation and caused -ality are necessarily the same thing here for and so i think for me that's always been a measure especially when you shoot beautiful thing so for example i work with with human bodies and a few sink Beautiful it's pretty easy to look at a graph of Nude male body that that's has exceptional bill and think. Oh what a what. A great photograph through the test. His no do. I feel anything looking at do does bring any moment any memory any any emotional response and if it doesn't then i'm pretty sure i probably just documented a beautiful thing put on didn't necessarily create anything beautiful down that makes sense but that's but that's kind of this mantra that have been using for very very long time and i weigh it against every single every single thing. I create. Use this measure. So it's one of the mike kind of toolbox. My main my main tool in the toolbox it now. You know it's now. You're you're the little stephen chart on my shoulder. Her that's creepy. There was a lot of people you know. I wanna talk a little bit about a world building and intent so we were looking at your work and you know of course. I'll linked to your your galleries and show some of the images in the blog. Post for this episode. But you know you. You speak of photographing with intent and being meticulous about the the the production process versus the post production process. Are you building in your head kind of like like a marvel. Cinematic universe steve resort rashard universe. Where you have little vignettes of characters in that world that you then have to you know capture in certain situations is that or is it more serendipitous. Both and it's this is a really long answer to your question in in a couple of parts and so there's what i call.

"It in for the gear you want at m. p. b. dot com folks in this interview. Little something special for you. I have the distinct pleasure and honor of sitting down with artists. Steve rashard april. Welcome back to another episode of this week in photo. I'm your post frederik van johnson. Today i'm joined by artists. Steve recharge stephen. I are going to talk about his motivations for his art is a little bit about his process and his view on just sort of the artistic community and the photographic community see and i have had conversations offline and have talked a little bit about where his mind sits in the stuff. And i'll tell you. Having conversations with steve have adjusted the way that i look at photography in many ways and hopefully it will impact you as well. Steve you're chard welcome to the show. How's it going. It's going great and thanks very much for taking some time to chat with me. I really really appreciate it. Look forward today. I am looking forward to this too in. You know typically before i start these these interviews. I ask the person that i'm interviewing you know. How do you want me to refer to you. When i do. The introduction is photographer is it artist is digital storyteller is that you know god of all these you know. What's what's the and you said artist. Very few people. Just say this commun- artist know. Can you talk about that a little bit. Why why artists and then we'll get into. We'll get into a little bit of your background. Okay this this may bramlett. But it's funny. Because i i certainly started out as a photographer and i used to love telegraphy and still do love looking at tara fee but i really have a hard time trying to define the work i creates as especially i work at as you probably know federica you know with ninety nine percent fine art nudes to use the photography term and i and i really hate the because if you go search that which i don't recommend it produces a pretty big pile of shit and take and i and i started to realize photography versus are is really been interesting and and something i think about a lot in and work with lot and it a while ago that i. I'm actually not really interested in photography anymore. And meaning that to talk graffiti when i first started was really about capturing images going out and if you wish documenting things and i used to love it a lot but i started moving into creating images creating stories if you wish creating moments that were really more about me. And what's in my head. What i wanted to say and and i had a hard time trying to find a way to say well. This is kind of like being a fine art photographer but but being a fine art photographer still didn't really do it for me. And i thought well really what i- amazon at artists that uses a camera and end. I love looking at photography. Really not saga for am not really interested in going out down the street with my camera or even going into the studio and and documenting things or or capturing things. I'm really just interested in creating the moment to these stories. That are really in fact about me in my ideals my ideas so in the adwan cutty reconcile that for for you know the millions of photographers out there that that call themselves photographer and embrace that are they is it. Is it a journey that the photographers are sort of on this path from you know the the the seduction of gear and the art form and ultimately though you know maybe start becoming more about the than the pixels in the whizbang in the software and all that should. Should it be a trajectory like that. I wanted it should be for me and was it is but i think it's so worth Marketing there's nothing wrong with being if dog. Perfect dog chris great. I just fell in love with being photographer underway. And though i still love looking at really great dog raphy. I'm not interested in what most of the time makes up the definition of photographer. And and i think some people could juggle both very well. Some people are really good. Artists really good photographers and and walk the line in between them and some people never leave photography world and you know even though they do certainly work. That's artistic. i don't wanna make you know. It's kind of a gray area. But they approach. They approach it from harborside and once again. There's nothing wrong with that. it's it's you know. crossing over. Into a very specific artist focus. I think is his interpersonal in in unique and so. I'm not sure that it's a journey that everybody takes her. Everybody wants to take whatsoever. Yeah and it depends right. You know having a conversation earlier today with the software with someone from a software company when a larger software companies in the industry and we were having a conversation about ai. Right and we had one of these. A similar conversation at one of our member mixers previously in the conversation centered around this this controversy that that artificial intelligence or those applying those sorts of technologies to your images Some people think it's dishonest and then other people think it's you know. Hey my pixels. I could do what i want to do with my pixels. My pixels my choice right so we. I know you know you're as we move into talking about your process and your work a little bit. I'm curious as to where you fall on that. Because you know a lot of photographers said you know. I'm i'm a purist only only mess f stops and shutter speeds and get it on the negative. Don't get on the negative. It ain't happening you know and then on the other side. They're photographers and say you know what the the like like. Our friend renee robin will capture elements of the final piece in not attempt to capture it all in one frame. It's all about capturing pieces of a final work that then get executed or presented orchestrated in the computer. Where do where do you fall on that. I know there's probably no one right answer to that but which which direction do you lean. Okay what i well there is. There is only one right answer of course in..

I just kind of kept an eye on her because she just has it like the talent industry when they're like i don't know what it is but like us have it like i just know you're going to be great and so like obviously there's players like sammy end and sabrina who's having like at. This point probably underrated year because people kind of like aloe. She's not a superstar. They're expecting triple doubles. But i just keep an eye on her and it's because she does things defensively which a lot of people are just like air. It's hard to stat out defense. And so like people don't realize when you're playing dominant engvall events that matters but like i think she's a piece of that team moving forward and that's like an incredible yet. Because if you think about all the acquisitions they made like okay. We get sabrina. Back from angle. Like thousands of no-brainer draft pick. We had the number one pick the right year good for us but they could have known wasted. It could've taken a long time to rebuild around her instead they go out and get laney in the offseason which i think aside from candace parker was the most even with candace. Parker maybe the most impactful in the long run move anybody made in russia. Our who has played two games this season. So she's part of their their core in the future. I talk about this all the time but like they already had a one-two-three in those three players i just named locked up for the future like four years to build around a really good core of someone who can score the ball move the ball. Rebound the ball play defense. Like you have everything you need on top of that you get a rookie of the year in mikhail wary and this defensive specialist the every team who wants to contend nba or.

Because these people who are doing the recount, the recount has become subject to numerous conspiracy theories, including one that state officials Had shredded the ballots. Fed the ballots. You know the fraudulent ballots head the ballots to chickens, and then they had the chickens burned up to cover up their incinerated because just having the chickens eat them wouldn't be enough. Maricopa County Recorder Steve Richard GOP official who's in charge of maintaining files on the county's 2.6 million registered voters, said I mean, This chicken story is probably The top of the charts when it comes to ridiculous, and there's a lot of ridiculous but It and people believe this and I don't understand how I haven't looked into it deeply how this group has managed to get ahold of the The well ballots and do a recount because the Maricopa County Republicans gave it to them. They hired this group called the Cyber Ninja Ins, who said we never We could never on it. It never audited. Not just never on it in an election never ordered it anything ever. These are the same people who were using special lights to see if paper ballots were made of bamboo because that meant they were from China because China bamboo Yeah, one of the things that they were talking s o. I guess some of the board of supervisors Hired them Now. The Republican Party, though, is against it. I just don't get out of that and not enough of the Republican Party. It's the Legislature's think it's the it's the Legislature that is pushing this thing. Because it's easier to believe that chickens ate the ballots, and then they were incinerated. Then it is to believe that Trump is so extremely unpopular that he lost, you know. Donor candidate number two. Okay then. Well, what happened to the chickens? It was the Senate Republicans, not the Maricopa County. Okay. All right, coming up in a moment. Boner candidate number three Bugsy. The Dawn has a new record out. All right.
