Access Highlights – It was definitely cool interviewing photographer & fashion designer Mark Painter in the past. He filled us in on a couple of things and also shared his favorites styles to do with photo shoots and his favorite camera to use!
“My photography is pretty lo-fi I mostly go for that raw American Apparel, Uncle Terry style. I have a lot of respect for photographers that shoot glam and are photoshop wizards and enjoy collaboration withthem but I also love raw pro-am looking images as well. I do like to play with natural light and of course get my best shots outdoors or by windows. The times where I’m stuck in my basement studio I make due with some compact flo and direct flash. I sell apparel on esty and I just need simple shots against a plain backdrop sometimes. I learned early on a tee shirt laying flat on a plain back round doesn’t sell very well and ladies apparel won’t sell at all unless it’s modeled. I try and test shoot every week. It’s a great opportunity for models looking for some experience and great for new and established models that want practice so anyone who wants to play dress up please hit me up!
