Jerry Avenaim Television Interview with Tom Sparks

Posted by Jerry Avenaim on January 23, 2009 – 4:37 am

I hope you enjoy this 30 minute interview, it went by quickly for us both. There was so much more to talk about 🙂 And by the way, since this interview was televised live the control booth made an error when showing my name as ‘James Avenaim’ for the first third of the show. Bastards 🙂

For those that attended my Samy’s camera seminar, it was a pleasure to meet you!

I will be writing more often I hope, I just haven’t had the time. I will be appearing on Life in the Fab Lane with Kimora Lee airing February 2009 on The Style Channel and E!

Happy learning!

    Thank you for posting your interview Jerry. I enjoyed it, and like you, wished it had lasted longer. I am always interested in how photographers interact with their subjects. Having read Yousuf Karsh’s biography, I believe you and he shared the same thorough approach in understanding your subjects well in advance. Again, thank you for posting your interview.

    Fantastic interview! It’s always a joy to read your interviews and, in this instance, have the pleasure of watching. You have a natural gift for compelling storytelling. You’ve experienced a lot in the span of your career and always do a phenomenal job of relaying your experiences in a way that’s captivating to both photographers and non-photographers alike.

    James…oops I mean Jerry, great story about “no film in the camera”. I enjoy seeing and hearing the person behind the great images.
