Ever wonder how GQ, Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair and Playboy get those awesome covers and how those photographers create those brilliant pictures? Short answer: Lots of HARD WORK! That’s what AM learned at Baby Tattooville as Philip Warner gave us a demonstration of what it’s like to be a professional photographer. With clients such as MTV, Playboy, SonyBMG and CSI: New York, it’s not hard to see that his expertise is highly sought after.
Phil set up shop in his hotel suite and transformed it into a mobile “shoot studio.” With professional “lighting-umbrellas”, “remote timer-flash gizmos” and “CGI-esque bluescreen” backdrops, attendees that were brave enough to enter the “wunderland” set was treated to an insider’s view of Phil working with professional models and creating visual masterpieces. Shooting under the theme: “We Like to Party,” the mini studio also served as a ad-hoc “green room” where everyone was treated like a star. Phil even took the time to give Audrey Kawasaki (interviewed) and the AM crew a hands-on working session with his equipment and a few pointers on how to get what we “needed” out of the shoot.
