FSB104: Joe Wigfall

January 29, 2010

If you’re familiar with my show, you know that my interest is not just in interviewing the photo celebrities the whole world knows about. Of course I know that probably no one would listen to this show if I didn’t interview those photo superstars. But, every now and then I love to have on the show a person who has the true heart of a photographer and has an intriguing story to tell. Whether it’s breast cancer survivor Deborah D. Lattimore, blind photographer Alex de Jong, or today’s guest

Joe Wigfall was the WNYC Street Shots Challenge winner, a contest where every day people who take photos of people and places in NY were asked to submit their best photos. Joe wasn’t typically interested in contests, but he had grown quite a following on Flickr and his comrades their strongly encouraged him to enter. To his shock, he won! I learned about Joe from one of my Twitter followers who tweeted me to check him out. I’m so glad I did. Joe’s charming personality and outlook on life are so infectious. He talks about how he does his “shoot from the hip” photography, his philosophy on being a photographer and artist, what it was like growing up in Harlem, and he of course tells us about his experience with the WNYC contest. I guarantee that this part-time pastor, full time legal assistant, and all-the-time photographer will inspire you.

Bumper music for this show is “Close to You” by Steve Hefter and Friends of Friends, part of the TRUE ROMANCE collection, courtesy of Triple Scoop Music.

    Joe was a fantastic guest. What I really enjoyed about him was his enthusiasm about wanting to share his talent and skills with others. One of the frustrations I have about photography, and photographers, is that quite often, they will only let you in so deep, and keep their best techniques to themselves as "secrets", either in composition, post processing, etc. He also has a great voice for podcasts! Please continue to have more guests like Joe! -Arthur
