On this episode of the podcast we sit down with renowned photographer Jill Greenberg to talk about what most would consider to be a very successful career in photography, all while remaining true to herself and her ideals as an artist. Although best known for creating a very recognizable look with her "End Times" series in 2005, Jill has a career that stretches over decades and involves shoots with some of the biggest name celebrities, musicians, politicians, and other social influencers. Jill has been credited with helping to usher in multiple new looks that have been replicated by many. She was born in Montreal, but moved to Detroit at an early age where she would begin to develop her artistic path while attending Cranbrook Elementary School, studying everything from photography to animation. Jill continued to pursue her artistic passion as she grew up, but was encouraged by one of her professors to focus on photography. After graduating from Rhode Island School of Design, Jill began to carve out her own niche in the competitive world of photography. During our conversation I get the chance to ask Jill how she built her career and how she's remained relevant in a world becoming more and more saturated with imagery. We discuss what it's like being "pigeon holed" by one look, how her career was effected by some of the controversy she found herself involved in, and the advice she gives to others coming up in the world of photography.
