Chris Floyd talks to Phonar

#Phonar Joined in Class by Chris Floyd from Matt Johnston on Vimeo.

This Week Chris Floyd Drove himself all the way up from London to have some Phonar Food and talk to us about his Career and his Practice as a Photographer. It was good to get someone in and have a conversationg with a more commercial practitioner who is currently working and being commisioned. He took us through his work with a great sense of humour but went into good detail with his experiences with working with clients. It was especially good hear him talk of how he has been able to deal with big Celebrity egos in the past and how he thinks up new ways to ‘break the ice’ between photographer and subject. I noticed a lot, he talked about previsualisation which was a nice refresher of our Picbod days! He always seemed to have a good idea of what he was going out to try and achieve with a shoot. For example when he Photographed an awkward Paul McCartney!
