“When nothing seems to help I go look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps 100 times without so much as a crack showing in it, yet at the 101st blow it will split in two and I know that it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before’’ Jacob Riis
Welcome to the Outerfocus Podcast!
Joining us for this episode we have Australian photographer Gina Milicia. Well-known and respected for her work both in the studio and on location, Gina has photographed many high profile people in both the fashion and entertainment world including Danni Minogue. We find out how Gina went from wanting to be sculptor, to getting her first break into photography after a mishap during a work experience placement saw her given cleaning duties to being offered an assistant job at the end. We also talk with Gina about the importance of understanding light; equipment when starting out; confidence in your art; progression in your own photography; her work and much more.
History of photography this week (very briefly) looks back at Jacob Riis. Born in 1849, Jacob is known for being a Danish-American social documentary photographer who used his skills in journalism and photography to help the poorer population of New York.
