FSB088: David Wittig

August 6, 2009

In late June of this year I wrote a post on my regular blog about the future of portrait photography. It painted the picture of a “Debbie Digital” type photographer succeeding amazingly due to technological achievements and a savvy marketing sense. It stirred quite a response on my blog and on some photography forums. One of the most “vocal” repliers to the post was today’s guest, fine art and wedding photographer David Wittig. David is a seasoned pro whose images have almost an otherworldly feel to them. (I love his use of tilt shift lenses in some of his wedding work). He’s respected in the industry and is a frequent and value contributor to a number of pro photography forums. I was very intrigued with the passion in his posts as he challenged some of my writings. I invited him on the show so that we could discuss this engrossing topic mano-a-mano. We talk about the different types of photographers in the world: from photo snobs who believe you must have a formal education to be considered a real photographer; to doe-eyed newbies with a passion for the craft but just don’t have the knowledge of the history. We delve into what really makes a “photographer.” I think you will find this a very engaging and interview. The result is a wonderful interview that gets into the past, present, and future of the industry.

    I met David at the Master Your Craft tour with Mike Colòn & Bob Davis. Super nice guy, very into life & art. Been fun to check in on him [via blog] at times. I like when you pick someone that’s intriguing to you.
