There are works in the Glamour Industry that one would consider beautiful and skillfully crafted, and then there are those images that make your chin hit the ground in awe! GlamModelz Magazine is pleased to present  a truly gifted artist of such images. Jeff, has become the fascination of many, with his unique eye for beauty,  grace and unique, distinctive style.  From Austin, Texas: Jeff Lynch, of One Digital Place. 

GlamModelz Magazine: Let’s get started!  Tell me about your background…how did you get started in Photography?  Jeff: As a boy, I was handed a Polaroid camera and shot a picture that developed, in black and white, before my eyes.  I could not believe how cool that was and just wanted to keep shooting.  Over the years, I gradually learned what you could do with a more sophisticated camera and began shooting landscapes and flowers.  Then finally I moved into doing forensic photography as part of my law practice out of necessity because I couldn’t find a “for hire photographer” who could capture the moment I wanted for use in jury trials I was handling.

GlamModelz Magazine: Why Glamour /Beauty?  What other genre’s and styles interest you? Jeff:  Outside of Glamour/Beauty, it would have to be landscape, floral, architectural and forensic photography.

Caitlin HixxGlamModelz Magazine: What challenges do you face in this industry?  What would you change about it, if you could?  Jeff: The industry does not strike me as being very organized or structured.  Anyone can get into the industry but not everybody can make money in the business.

I have met many talented and accomplished photographers who have not had the right contacts or opportunities to develop the economic side of the photography business.  This leads a lot of people in the direction of the more mundane world of what I would call the “face shot” side of the photography industry.

Just like in every industry, there will always be a big demand for high quality work product and talented photographers, but matching the service providers with the people seeking the services is the marketing conundrum.

GlamModelz Magazine: What equipment is essential for you as a glamour photographer, to capture your “best shot”?  Jeff: I guess I would have to say that I am a minimalist at heart.  It’s great to have an expensive camera, lens, lighting options and a studio, but I can capture a “best shot” with a basic camera outdoors or basic camera and two soft light boxes indoors.  I just have to make certain that the basic camera will allow me to do the my manual settings.

GlamModelz Magazine: Paid vs. TF* shoots – What are your views and preferences? Jeff: My view here is pretty simple.  Paying for a shoot makes sense to me when there is a model, well known or not, whom I want to shoot or there is some other special or unique circumstance that merits a “pay for” shooting.  TF on the other hand for me is limited to a model that I want to add to my portfolio or an up and coming model that needs to create a portfolio to get to the next level.  I do both, but it’s more the exception than what is normal since neither one contributes to the bottom line.

Jessica VaugnGlamModelz Magazine: What or who inspires you as a photographer?  Jeff: My inspirations come from many sources and directions.  For example, how could anyone not be inspired by the quality and the beauty of the National Geographic’s outdoor photography, or the lighting techniques of the Playboy photographers, capturing the moment in a sporting event and editorial photography of the war zone photographers?

I am constantly impressed and inspired by the color and beauty of flowers, mountain vistas, sunsets, forensic scenes and the uniqueness and complexity of architectural creations and settings.

I admire and am inspired by Ansel Adams and the musician Bryan Adams (who are not related although they share the same last name).  Bryan has managed to successfully continue with his musical career while at the same time becoming an outstanding photographer who has garnered international recognition.

GlamModelz Magazine: What are your goals for your photography?  Other goals?   Jeff: My goals are simple, I want to continue to improve on the quality, clarity, content and the story line that my images create.

GlamModelzODP11449685002March 21, 2008GlamModelz Magazine: What qualities should  Models/MUA’s/Stylists, etc have to work with you?   Jeff: Whether you are a Model, MUA or Stylist you must be on time, be prompt, be fully involved, be prepared, be inspired, be enthusiastic, be open to learning, and be brave enough to step outside of your normal comfort zones.  When these things happen, something magical will take place in front of the lens and on the digital disk.   Anyone can take a picture, but I want to a capture a moment, an emotion, a color and a wow factor.  It takes a team effort.

GlamModelz Magazine: What advice do you have for new/amateur photographers who want to shoot glamour?   Jeff: With today’s ever improving digital cameras, anyone can take a pretty good picture automatically.  The really famous and recognized photographers are not interested in taking pretty good pictures.  The only way to accomplish taking great pictures that ooze with emotion, sparkle with stunning lighting, pop with brilliant color, and amaze with texture, clarity and details, is to study, understand and master the manual functionality of your camera, to understand the science and placement of lighting, and to interact with the model to draw out the emotion, mood and look you desire.  Most importantly, don’t be hesitant to experiment with different techniques because the use of different methods of photography will enhance your overall understanding and improvement.  Finally, don’t settle for run of the mill pretty good pictures.

GlamModelz Magazine: Tell us about your biggest accomplishment to date or what makes you most proud.   Jeff: I am not sure I can really identify a biggest accomplishment or proudest moment as a photographer.  Like most photographers, I have had the picture of the day recognition, showcase images, pictures published, hired for cool projects, and had people and companies buy or license my images. Each of these experiences is joyful.  I am happiest when someone takes the time to say or point out that one of my images really left them with a particular reaction, feeling, emotion or a sense of artistry or creativity.

 Brooke BanxGlamModelz Magazine: What advice do you have for new models who want to shoot glamour? Jeff: Don’t leave it to someone else when it comes to your looks, hair, make-up, and wardrobe.

Every image that is taken of you has the potential to negatively or positively influence how you appear and are perceived and recognized publicly for years to come.  So make sure you always look your best and the way you want to be depicted in the project you are hired for and in the images that will be taken of you.

GlamModelz Magazine: In addition to photography, do you have other skills/interests/talents in which you excel?   Jeff: I have really jumped with both feet into cooking and thoroughly enjoy the creativity and complexity of it.  I did zero cooking growing up, and then did my share of over cooking on the grill and had little to no understanding of the concepts.  With a little effort and a few lessons, I can knock out anything from a quality tiramisu to a wild game feast.  I really regret now not paying more attention to all of the things my mother and grandmother knew and could have taught me about cooking.

GlamModelzODP11155086002December 09, 2011

GlamModelz Magazine: What other interesting facts would you like GlamModelz readers to know about you?   Jeff: I spend the majority of my time working in my very active trial law practice in Texas; which means I don’t get to spend as much time in shooting as I would like to do. And I guess the other interesting fact would be that I did my first glamour shoot in June of 2008.

 GlamModelz Magazine: Where can we see more of your work?  How can models who wish to shoot with you contact you? Jeff: Well one of these days my photography site will cease being in the “under construction stage”, but for now the readers can see more of my work at www.onemodelplace.comwww.paidmodels.com, www.redbubble.com, www.jpgmag.com and www.modelmayhem.com.

    After being a fan of Jeff’s work for the last few years, it was extremely interesting to read this interview and get a feel for the man behind the gorgeous images. Jeff certainly comes across as one of the more thoughtful photographers I have encountered. I think his advice is sound and practical. I am familiar with Jeff’s work only through Model Mayhem, so it was quite helpful to learn of the other Web sites where one can view his fabulous images. In fact, I am going to check them out right now!
