LensFlare35 Episode 67 – Interview with Commercial Photographer & Educator Dirk FletcherBy
LensFlare35 is a photography podcast brought to you by Dave Warner. This week, Dave interviews Dirk Fletcher. Dirk’s personal work centers on transportation, industry and things that are “big and cool.” He’s personally concerned with the archivability of a family’s personal history. As society has shifted from film cameras to cell phones to record birthdays, holidays and other family events, the days of finding a dusty box of history in grandma’s attic are numbered. Seven years ago, Dirk was hired by the Harrington College of Design to build the first new program offering in the school’s 75 year history – blending commercial photography with digital video.
In this episode, Dirk talks about what’s in grandma’s attic, why you should shoot film AND digital, his book “Lighting for Dummies“, how he ended up teaching, video, his kids and much more. We created a multi-media show of his images with an explanation of each one with the full podcast interview (above) and our typical show player and download, which is below.
