Today we’re receiving a special guest, the great photographer Gary Plumlee! He ran a wonderful shooting in Texas which,like he said, gave him “an amazing opportunity to work with some of Galia Lahav’s most recent creations in concert with a very unique model, the amazing Katharina Linke! She wore two of our dresses Delphine and Crystal as you will see! This shooting also gave us the chance to learn a bit more about him, his art and his inspiration! We asked him a few questions, so don’t hesitated to scroll down to know his answers and his work!
Why did you want to become a photographer?
“I have always been an artist, I guess I was born an artist and began looking for my thing, my art. I suppose that my uncle, a talented photographer, gave me a camera to shoot and I could just “do it”, so I did and never stopped.
“I have always been interested in photography…as far back as I can remember. For many years I shot medium and large format film cameras. Over the years I have probably used every kind of camera manufactured, (most of them anyway), but I was never totally satisfied with what I saw, I guess I was a pretty intense artist. I have photographed well over one thousand weddings, many celebrities, and countless portraits.(…)When digital photography came along I approached it with the same intensity. I went back to school and studied technology eventually graduating with a degree in Convergence Technology, graduating with honors; Magna Cum Laude. I loved the idea that digital photography offered and after waiting a few years for the equipment to catch up it finally has. Now I’m having fun! Digital Photography offers the widest range of possibilities especially in genres like fashion photography.”
What do you think is common to you and Galia Lahav?
“Galia Lahav is very unique. It is art in the form of women’s clothing. I have always had success in photographing women. I think the way that Galia Lahav so effectively compliments female form with Galia’s “edgy” style, makes it a natural subject that wholly captivates my interest and gives me the desire to work with Galia Lahav. I have recently had an amazing opportunity to work with some of Galia Lahav’s most recent creations in concert with a very unique model, “the amazing Katharina Linke”, it was very gratifying to me.”
