Erik Valind is a freelance photographer, specializing in commercial lifestyle photography and environmental portraiture. We've got a great podcast and guest post coming up next week with Erik, thanks to Tamron USA.
In a recent phone conversation with Erik, he talked about the importance of building a relationship with each subject as he works to capture the most natural expressions. He mentioned a shoot he did with Josh Groban. The more fun they had on the shoot, the more Josh relaxed and the better the images.
Erik sent me the link to the behind-the-scenes video of this shoot for Yamaha with Josh Groban. It's worth watching, just to see the set up and the interaction between Erik, his team and Josh. You'll also notice Erik working with one of his favorite Tamron lenses, the 90mm.
Stay tuned to the Tamron Theater, SCU podcasts and guest posts. There's lots more coming with Erik!
