Flickr Pro Lou Noble is a Los Angeles-born Hollywood set medic and photographer who specializes in portrait photography. As Editor-in-Chief of The Photographic Journal, Lou credits Flickr with nurturing his passion for photography early on in his career by connecting with our incredible community of creatives. We were lucky enough to catch up with Lou in Los Angeles, CA to chat with him and watch him work his magic with model Julya.
“As a photographer I attempt to take naturalistic photos that capture something unique or noteworthy, and communicate that through a photograph”
“Part of working with a model that’s used to being photographed all the time, is drawing out something new. It starts with connecting with my subject. And as we talk and connect, I might see something that they don’t typically show the world, or even see themselves. To me, that’s what I want to grab, that’s what’s real.”
“Early on in my photography, there was one place that really nurtured my passion for this craft, and that was Flickr. It was a place you and a community could share your photos, and how you felt about them”
“I’ll always love Flickr. Some art isn’t meant to be viewed solely on a phone. I want them to be viewed how I intended. Big, detailed. I want people to be able to savor the image. That’s what Flickr is to me.”
