This week on the podcast we are joined by photographer Chris Buck to talk about working with everyone from the President of the United States to A-List celebrities, and his newest book "Uneasy" which features a 30 year retrospective of his images. Although Canadian born and raised, Chris has called New York City home for most of his life and many of his images reflect the edge and grit that the city is known for. Growing up with a father who worked for Kodak and a mother that loved artwork, Chris always gravitated towards a creative life, but it was a high school class in mass media that would give him a glimpse into what he would pursue and what it was called. Through high school and college Chris spent time in the music scene, managing a band and working with a local publication. But his lifelong fascination with pop culture would find it's way back in after moving to New York where he quickly found himself shooting celebrities as well as musicians. He has gone on to work with some of the biggest names in the business, and has created a look and work ethic that sets him apart from others. He has garnered respect from his peers as well as a huge roster of clients and was awarded the first Arnold Newman Portrait Prize in 2007. During our conversation, we talk about Chris's thoughts on the current state of digital media and photography, how we see ourselves in the people we shoot, why it's important to write down goals, and pursuing photography for the sake of art and not money. So enjoy this conversation with someone who has definitely paid their dues.
