    Ep 08- Shoot Diary: Photographing Korn and Working Through Trauma

    Ep 08- Shoot Diary: Photographing Korn and Working Through Trauma

    This episode marks the start of Season Two of Viewfinders. With the new season comes a tweak in the format. While the new season will still include interviews with industry creatives as it did in Season One, it will also include “shoot diaries” where Nick Fancher gives you insight into his creative process on a particular shoot.

    This episode will take you behind the scenes on Fancher’s two shoots with Grammy award-winning metal band, Korn. The first shoot was Fancher’s visual contribution to The Nothing, the bands 13th album, and the second was an editorial shoot for Revolver Magazine.

    Aside from discussing how he concepted and executed his signature techniques in the shoot, Fancher spends a significant portion of the episode talking about how he has been coming to terms with past trauma in his life and allowing it to inform how creative process.

    Ep 06- Osborne Macharia: "Making His Own World"

    Ep 06- Osborne Macharia: "Making His Own World"

    Kenyan photographer Osborne Macharia is a self-taught photographer who is known for his Afro-Futurist images. He is particularly known for making stylized studio portraits of elderly people in his city of Nairobi. In 2010, while in school for architecture, Osborne came across the portrait work of Joey Lawrence, which so moved him that left his degree to pursue a career in photography.

    After teaching himself photography and retouching by way of Youtube, he began collaborating with a local stylist on a number of personal projects. One of these projects, which he refers to as “Hip Hop Grandpas”, went viral on Twitter in 2016, leading to a great deal of press, including an interview with CNN. He has found a balance between his personal projects, which generate interest from global brands such as Absolut Vodka and Marvel, which in turn funds future personal projects. 

    In this episode Nick Fancher chats with Osborne about how he developed his visual style as well as what it looks like for him to work on a personal project, from the first sketches to the gallery opening.

    Ep 05- Jay Gullion: "Controlling the Narrative"

    Ep 05- Jay Gullion: "Controlling the Narrative"

    Jay Gullion (https://www.instagram.com/jaygullion/) is a multi-disciplinary creative who works in photo, video, design, creative/art direction, and brand consultant. In an effort to succinctly describe his position, he uses the word “translator”, as he works directly with brands to conceptualize and execute their campaigns. His education is in photography and marketing, and he got his break as an employee at Apple in the mid-2000s. He has since gone out on his own, creating a range of print and digital campaigns as well as activations and installations for a range of luxury brands such as Land Rover, Hermes, Omega, Bose, and Bottega Veneta. His work is largely shrouded in mystery, due to an intention lack of website or social media presence.  In this episode we discuss:

    - how he has diversified his skill set to be a one-stop shop for brands by understanding the world of marketing 

    - with the oversaturated market of talented photographers working today, Jay stands out by being able to wear many hats

    - why he intentionally doesn’t have a website, keeps his Instagram posts vague, and asks brands and celebrities not to tag him

    - why he prides himself in living in Ohio despite working with international clientele 

    - what motivates creators to create

    - creating for yourself as opposed to creating for your followers

    - his craziest week of work

    Ep 04- Sara Lando: "Honesty in Anonymity"

    Ep 04- Sara Lando: "Honesty in Anonymity"

    Sara Lando is a photographer, mixed media artist, and educator based in Bassano del Grappa, Italy. I met her last February, while teaching at Gulf Photo Plus in Dubai. We had several great conversations about art and life and I also sat in on one of her talks about the online course that she runs: The Support Group For Lazy Photographers. Her ability to see through an artist and their work and call out what they’re too afraid to say (all while not killing their spirit) is unrivaled. In our conversation we discussed the following:

    why she is hesitant to merge her fine art work with her commercial clientele  

    why she is fine with people “stealing” her images

    why she prefers to live in a small town and commute to clients

    how she learns from hiring other photographers to take her portrait 

    how photography helped her deal with her anxiety attacks

    how learning new skills keeps her more honest 

    her online course, The Support Group for Lazy Photographers

    why sucking at art (or anything) is important for growth

    how social media is impacting how photographers create their images

    how she doesn’t need to be a master of technique— just good enough for her clients

    how she increases the quality of her work through quantity

    the creepy things that male photographers say to their female subjects

    how to figure out which gigs to say “no” to
