  1. Karl,
    I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on the future of fashion photography, models and photographers. I was just visiting Looklet.com and came away pretty shaken. Technology is opening some amazing doors.

    1. Hi David, I took a look at looklet.com and it was very interesting but i don’t really consider that fashion photography, it’s more catalogue shots and that sort of thing had been going on for years even with the ‘invisible mannequin’ shots. I think there will always be a place for more sophisticated fashion photography where the models are ‘in action’ or part of a more complex set etc. But digtial and CGI is definitely making more of an impact on all areas of photography from Car to Product work, many photographers I know are already starting to incorporate Cinema 4D CGI into their workflow. The question will always come down to economics though, how much does it cost to shoot it compared to CGI, how long does it take and which looks best. If you answer those questions then you know where it will go.
