Photographer, entrepreneur, and mastermind behind the Plotaverse Troy Plota joins the podcast to talk about how he went from being a sought after photographer in the fashion world and running a top dollar studio, to becoming a tech entrepreneur and creating what would become known as the plotagraph. From his earliest beginnings as a beach kid in Florida, Troy had a love for photography. After convincing his Dad to give him his camera so he could use it in a school class, Troy fell in love with the creative possibilities that the still image brought him and the access his camera provided. We talk about how that humble yearbook start grew into a hugely successful photography career, working with magazines like Vanity Fair and GQ and shooting advertising campaigns that many dream of. Although Troy came up in the professional world of shooting medium format film, he was a quick adopter of the possibilities that the digital format could offer and before long became known as one of the go-to photographers who truly understood digital technology. He continued to constantly try and evolve as the technology did the same and was soon experimenting with early VR technology which would lead him to finally making the decision to step into his most current roll as a tech entrepreneur. During our conversation we talk about what the future of photography might look like, the roll that animated motion art might have in commercial work, and the advice he would have given himself all those years ago when he first had the idea of trying to make it as a working photographer.
