Sharing your life’s work, your passion, your craft with students opens you up to examining your body of work like a vaulted time capsule newly unearthed. On Tuesday, November 14, 2017 I spoke to a Fashion Photography class at UPenn. The teacher, Tony Ward my friend and colleague, invited me. How could I say no? Our few hours together were broken into three segments; Lecture, Q&A, Student assignment. 

I presented a slice of my work in publishing, explaining a Fashion Directors role and responsibilities to achieve a final photo worthy for public viewing. I emphasized the importance of the photographer selection and ultimately the relationship between the Fashion Director + Photographer and achieving a successful outcome. The students were attentive and interested in the process. Questions proved to me that they saw their role in the craft as needing to be continually open to exploring ideas, techniques and collaboration. 

Then came the fun part for me, hopefully for the students as well, getting to work. I styled the models in my most recent addition to the Old School Shirt Makers New York collection, Roger Charles bow ties and knitwear + fiber art by K. The students were divided into groups, assignments in hand, cameras ready; they went off to make magic happen through the lens. I witnessed several of the students applying what they had been taught. I saw artistic adventure, working with the models, the space, the lighting and using their talents to capture THE shot. Some students were quiet and serious, some were very methodical and a handful were playful and relaxed. There is no right or wrong way, it’s about finding your way. 

My capsule reveals the journey I took and how I did what I did, my way. The students I had the pleasure to speak with and collaborate with have a lifetime to fill up their capsule. I hope their journey leads them to a place where they can reflect back and say, this is who I am and I created this. 

Thank you Tony, my friend, for another experience added to the journey.
