Episode 3: Clay Patrick McBride - 10 AM
Tom Kennedy and Luke Copping chat with Clay Patrick about what he’s seeing as he lends a hand to the next generation of photographers through his work as a professor of photography at the Rochester Institute of Technology. They are also interested in knowing more about the realities of covering pop culture and the artists who create it. Clay Patrick is a NYC-based photographer who began his visual training in the South of France, where he spent his late teens and early twenties studying painting and art history. He eventually turned his focus to photography, moving to New York City in the early 1990s to attend the School of Visual Arts. While earning his BFA, McBride developed a bold style of portraiture intended to both celebrate and empower the subject with humor and honesty. McBride’s portraits of top athletes and musicians such as LeBron James, Allen Iverson, Metallica, Norah Jones, Jay Z, and Kanye West have appeared in countless magazines, among them Rolling Stone, Sports Illustrated and NY Magazine. His commercial work includes dozens of album covers for Sony, Blue Note and Atlantic Records, as well as print campaigns for Pontiac, Boost Mobile and Nike. Over the past few years McBride has expanded into moving pictures with short film projects and music videos. Characterized by a stark surrealist quality, his film work is an exciting and logical extension of his still photography.
