Without further ado, please read on the full interview complete with images:
Photo Daily Dose: What was the first thing that came through your mind when you heard the words “Hey, we want you to shoot Jeff Bridges for Wall Street Journal”?
Photo Daily Dose: We’ve all seen Jeff Bridges in movies and he has a very strong presence. Did you at any point feel intimidated?
Photo Daily Dose: Do you think the fact that Mr. Bridges is a photographer himself had any influence in the result of the photoshoot? If so, do you feel it made your job easier or harder?
Photo Daily Dose: When shooting this kind of jobs, do you have some sort of a go-to lighting setup that you use most of the time or do you do it differently in every situation?
Photo Daily Dose: What about pre-planning? What kind of research — if any — do you do for these shoots?
Photo Daily Dose: What was the most difficult thing about this particular shoot? And the easiest?
Photo Daily Dose: If you had to describe your subject in a word, what would it be?
Photo Daily Dose: OK, let’s talk about gear now: what did you use and why?
Photo Daily Dose: Any particular funny/awkward moment you want to share with us?
Photo Daily Dose: I’ve seen your portfolio and you have some amazing portraiture work. Is there any piece of advice you’d like to give to young photographers who want to do what you do for a living?
Photo Daily Dose: If you could choose the subject of your next portrait, who would you choose?
And that’s it. As always, feel free to tell me what you think in the comments.
