CMT and Annie Leibovitz…

Every semester the photojournalism students take a trip to meet with various photographers, and I have to say this was definitely one of our best day trips! We met with Brett Warren at CMT and he gave us the grand tour.

When we finally sat down for a little Q&A, he further explained about his internship with ANNIE LEIBOVITZ. Yes, you heard me, ANNIE LEIBOVITZ. He has shared a cookie with her. He has assisted her multiple times. I. CANNOT. IMAGINE.
Brett is an incredible photographer, (look at his personal work here and on flickr) and I would not doubt it if he were the next Annie. He makes props…designs costumes and sets…and creates absolutely rich photos. He said he likes to layer it on as much as possible! Believe it or not, Brett uses Photoshop very little…mainly to adjust color, “to tell more about the people in the photos.”

[Here are some of his sketches for an upcoming shoot!!]

What an amazing an inspiring trip!
