In this episode of The Photography Lounge, your host Alastair Jolly sits down with Jared Platt and they discuss the nuances that make him describe himself as a documentary wedding photographer and not a wedding photojournalist.
Jared grew up in a small, rural, town in Arizona and fondly reminisces about some of the unique daily occurrences at school. Initially dreaming of being a rock star then starting out as a Theatre major he quickly realised his path actually lay in the world of photography.
Jared is recognised throughout the photography industry as one of the leading educators in process and workflow. His foundations in commercial photography and his experience of the transition to digital have led him to focus on how the power of all the amazing tools we have at our disposal today can only be unleashed with the right focus on process and workflow.
As a father, the conversation turns to how to find a good work-life balance and how his use of good processes and workflows allow him to spend quality time with family rather than being tied to the editing suite.
