This week’s episode was someone whose work I admire and he was recommended by a friend. Meet Jon Kutt AKA The High Road Design, an amazing artist who now specialises in Illustrator and Procreate. We chat about how the latest technology can be embraced to become a better and more flexible designer. Utilising the current software and hardware to give you more scope to be a better designer and get more business is what John has done over the past few years since getting an iPad and going mobile as a workflow. I love his work and aesthetic – and he’s such a fun interviewee! Enjoy!
I first met this week’s guest, amazing Dog Photographer Kaylee Greer, at Photoshop World, we were both newbie instructors. Kaylee is one of the most hard working and dedicated professionals in her specialist field. She’s often imitated and you can see why, her style is unique and her reason for committing to dog photography is also admirable. She is a joy to interview and even more so as a friend. She has also just released her first book, Dogtography, with Rocky Nook which will also be a huge success.
Kaylee Greer is an internationally recognized private and commercial pet photographer. She is living out her dream through a camera lens in gorgeous Boston, Massachusetts. She’s traveled the world teaching pet photography workshops and has seen her work published in many major industry editorial titles. Her images grace calendar lines, greeting cards, products, packaging and advertising campaigns throughout the commercial pet industry. Her photographic style is drawn directly from the inspiration she finds inside the soul of a dog. She is fueled by the joy, whimsy and unrelenting happiness that is so uniquely canine. Kaylee is known for her love of vibrant colors and process of capturing the comedy and character of dogs. Through her business, Dog Breath Photography, it is one of Kaylee’s strongest passions to give a voice to the voiceless by volunteering her time to local shelters and photographing the abandoned and homeless animals who lie in wait for a second chance.
This week’s guest is a delightful young photographer, speaker, influencer and hard working creative powerhouse, New York based Elise Swopes.
