creativeLIVE is a pretty cool company. They do live instructional classes featuring all kinds of talented artists. The most recent one was with world-renowned photographer Matthew Jordan Smith and I came on as a camera operator.
The feel of these shoots are a mix between event and documentary. There’s three operators working the shoot and a director guiding you in the ear. Which is why it seems like an event shoot. However, you also have to anticipate the instructor, where he’s going, when he’s going to reference something else, and even when someone else on the shoot is going to talk. It’s actually pretty fun, and Matthew Jordan Smith was both gracious and entertaining to watch.
If you like the concept, or want to learn more, they’re actually free to watch on the day of the streaming, so check them out!1 year ago
