Jared Thomas – Hello world it’s me!

Eine gute Mischung der beiden Stile von Hendrik Purienne und Terry Richardson und voilà heraus kommt eine Jared Thomas Kocka. Jared lebte in Minneapolis, bevor er nach einer Nacht- und Nebelaktion, bei der er eine DSLR Kamera kaufte, kurz darauf nach L.A. zog, um als professioneller Fotograf Fuß zu fassen.


How did you become involved with photography? Do you remember your first camera?

Jared Thomas:

I basically got into photography as a creative outlet in my mid 20s. When I was younger I played music. I played in a band and toured the country and did that whole thing. So in my mid 20s I decided that it was time for me to stop playing music get a real job and adult. But I quickly realized that I hated that idea and so on black friday I bought my first DSLR it was a canon 60D. I maxed out my credit cards and bought it at best buy. But I basically just got into it as a hobby and something to do.


Would you give a brief walk through your work flow?

Jared Thomas:

Honestly my work flow is a bit fucked. I basically just have the model or models show up and we just shoot some random stuff and try to create some fun and interesting images. then a little retouching and call it a day. Nothing too crazy or planned out haha.


How do you choose your models? What kind of features should a model have to work with you?

Jared Thomas:

I choose my models a number of different ways. It really all just depends on what I am looking for at the time.


Tell us something to your way of thinking and acting for your project „Models on VHS”!

Jared Thomas:

Models on VHS is just really something is just for fun. I basically just started doing it for fun. So I just kinda direct the models and just create some funny stuff. Its really pretty simple for the most part.

What do you think of music? Do you need music during your photo shoots?

Jared Thomas:

Always have music playing while you shoot. its helps get people in rhythm together and also fills up all the silence and helps to diffuse any awkwardness. It is a must!
