Ted Forbes : He personifies to me, what photography talk, commentary and critique is all about!
My guest this week was Ted Forbes host of The Art of Photography. His was the first photography show that I found on iTunes and I have been an avid fan since. Ted presents a show that introduces you to the great film photography masters, film cameras, different styles of image making, not to mention the odd educating show on the rules of photography. His passion for his chosen field is clear to see. He has nothing against Digital photography, but interestingly having used digital cameras he just loves to get back to using film cameras.
Ted has a unique way of educating you through a masters work. It is clearly a niche he has created and filled that for me, is just a 'must watch' You Tube video show - I promise you. If you haven't seen one of his shows then I urge you to watch, listen and be prepared to learn. He has recently decided to leave his day job as the Multimedia Producer of the Dallas Museum of Art to concentrate on his passion, The Art of Photography show. He has developed many other others. Recently he started two new (short) shows called 3 and a Q & A session, plus he continues his successful podcast with his friend Wade Griffith (who specialises in interior photography). One of his major successes was The Masterclass Live, a course of programmes that took you through the stages of improving your photography. In which you really see Ted at his teaching best.
So I hope you enjoy my conversation with the recently retired, Ted Forbes as we discussed photography in general, the authors, the style of work, basically his passion for photography.
Till next Time..
