Interview/BTS With Lifestyle Photographer Joseph Tyler
I know you all have seen tons of life style photographers, all the happy, smiley shots of girls wearing weird, fashionable clothing. However, I think each photographer who shoots these is able to tell a different story with them. Joseph Tyler is one of these photographer who is able to tell a different story then the others. These shots are not all happy, smiley, and fun looking. They are more on the serious side of things which is a nice little change from the ordinary life style shots.
Joseph recently just got back from a week trip down in LA and had this awesome BTS video shot by Will Start which is more of a fashion video then a behind the scenes. Definitely worth the watch.
I decided to ask Joseph a few questions and get to know him a little bit, here is what he had to say:
1. Tell us a little about yourself?
Hello my name is Joseph Tyler Newell I’m 21 years old. Born and raised in the Inland Northwest. Lets just say my life revolves around being creative. I enjoy being in front of the camera as much as behind the camera. I can admit photography has taken over my life from taking pictures on my dslr to expressing my daily life from my iPhone.
2. What got you started in photography?
Photography was an accident. Long story short I tore my ACL a long time ago and while I was recovering I randomly picked up a camera. I’ve always considered my self a visual person so taking pictures felt comfortable. Since that day I’ve been taking pictures non stop.
3. What style do you mainly shoot?
I shoot mainly lifestyle, fashion, portraiture, and conceptual.
4. What equipment do you use?
I use a 5D Mark II and recently upgraded to the 50L 1.2
5. How long have you been shooting?
Roughly 6 years. I found my style in the past 2 years.
6. Who is your biggest inspiration?
My mother is my biggest inspiration. She’s supported my photography from the start. With out her love and support I wouldn’t be where I’m at today.
7. Where do you see yourself with photography in the next 5 years?
I would love to be working with higher end clients. Also traveling the world of course.
