Mark Seliger Interviews Martin Schoeller and Private Joker

I recently discovered Capture—a great online series in which Mark Seliger interviews iconic photographers and celebrity photo-buffs. If you are a photographer, you’re going to love it.

This episode reveals the creative process behind Martin Schoeller’s and Matthew Modine’s most memorable images. Discover details on the controversial breastfeeding cover for Time Magazine, camera tips from Stanley Kubrick and more.

I particularly like Schoeller’s story about scotch-taping Steve Carell’s head for an image (at 13:44). He ends the anecdote by saying, “Sometimes you have to wait for the publicist to disappear to pull out your best ideas”—supporting my theory that all successful photographers are at least a bit devious!

You can watch more episodes of Capture for free on Reserve’s Youtube Channel.
