TftCN: An interview with Angel Canann- One World Photography

TftCN: An interview with Angel Canann- One World Photography

Today on Tales from the Crow’s Nest, we have a special treat, an interview with Angel Canann of One World Photography.

Angel is the sole proprietor and photographer of One World Photography in Denver. She has done several photo shoots with the Colorado Rogues. In 2010 she was made an official F.O.R. (Friend of Rogues) and we are very  happy to have her. You may find her website at www.oneworldphotographyarts.com.

So without further adieu..

Question: What got you started doing photography?

Angel: I’ve loved cameras since I was a child. I think it’s the idea of holding on to memories that I want to keep, or sharing the way that I see the world, or helping to tell someone else’s story, that is the basic draw for me. It is art, it is expression, it is communication and understanding, and when it’s not Photo-Shopped, it is truth.

Question: Is photography more of a hobby for you or more of a business?

Angel: ***~laugh~ …Yes!

It is a Passion; an evolutionary learning and growth process. I am blessed to be able to also call the experience business.

Question: Tell us a little bit about yourself. I know that you have done work for several members Rogues and have also done work with Avistrum. Any interesting stories?

Angel: The most incredible one is that if I hadn’t picked up the Denver Post one Saturday morning and seen a want ad for employment at Colorado Ballet, I wouldn’t even be doing this interview right now. I started working at the ballet, another girl started there and begged Jackie to work there for her, that girl got fired three days later and Jackie started working for me. Jaded (Jackie) asked me to come shoot Avistrum in the fall of 2007, and the rest is history. I have since become a FOR, a CON-noisseur  ;p, and a photographer for some of Avistrum’s events. Life turns on a dime.

Question: Do you ever sell your photos as art? Or are they mainly done for a client and sold directly  to  that customer?

Angel: My work is sometimes sold as art, sometimes as a photo story, and sometimes as photo work for a client or friend.

Question: I saw the photos you  took for the crew of the Nautilus, they  were  really  great. Do you work regularly with any of the local make- up  artists?

Charlotte Berech-Herring

Angel: Yes, Lesley Beckmann and Charlotte Berech-Herring are two face paint/makeup artists who have worked with me on separate photo shoots in the past. I enjoy working with them! It’s such a delightful honor to collaborate with other talented artists. Lesley worked on the Nautilus photo shoot. I highly recommend them.  http://denverfacepainter.com is Charlotte’s website.

Example of work by Denver Face Painter

Question: In preparation for this interview I did a web search for One world photography, and there were a few possible sites that came up. Are they affiliated with you?

Angel: No, I am the sole proprietor and photographer of One World Photography in Denver, although the website has a slightly different name. www.oneworldphotographyarts.com  And I would like to  give a huge thank you and shout out to my brilliant and patient web designer and friend Barry Ludwick!! I’d still be floundering in the dark recesses of the unknown un-internet if it weren’t for him.

Question: What is your favorite piece that you have done?

One World Photography:Big Ben by Angel Canann

Angel: I could sooner choose a favorite star in the sky ;D (that’s a bit of inside humor, as I am an avid astronomer). There are many favorites for many reasons, but some of the most special are a raindrop during a storm on Lake Dillon, the Eiffel tower in the distance of a pink sunset; it’s a lovely moment to see, but also special because the friend I was with was seeing the Eiffel for the first time and it looked like that. There is one showing the back of the giant clock in the Musee D’Orsay in Paris, Big Ben hiding behind a tree in London, an image of Prince William and Kate Middleton in their carriage coming back from Westminster Abbey after their wedding, one I shot in Santa Fe of a homeless man named Jason and his dog while they were sitting on the sidewalk, several professional ballet and dance images, Harrison Ford giving me a really great smile, Vancouver BC glistening in the late afternoon sun like a jewel, a statue on one of the fountains at Versailles palace that looks as if he is weeping, several images from Scotland, London, Paris, New York, San Francisco, Highway 101, Los Angeles, Rocky Mtn Natl Park, Boston, Florida, Canada, Mexico, Italy, different towns and villages throughout the UK, Seattle, Bandon, Santa Fe, St. Louis and even the Col Ren Faire; there are more, I am sure. People, places, moments that define time and place and experience. So many to love for different reasons.

Question: What  are some of the things you  are currently  working on?

One World Photography: Tulips and Mountain by Angel Canann

Angel:Some of the most recent work over the last month has been shot in New York, Boston, Seattle and Anacortes (Washington) where I shot Orca and tulip farms, and in Italy along the Amalfi Coast, and in Rome. Some of the photos I am willing to share outside of my website are up on Facebook. But my best work never goes up on Facebook, because it’s too easy to steal.

One World Photography-Amalfi Coast by Angel Canann

Question:Anything else you want to  touch base on?

Angel: I am working on some very unique and special art projects that will be available soon, as well as a handful of upcoming art shows… Stay tuned!! New wow coming!! ;D

One World Photography: Ice Castle Traveler by Angel Canann

Question:If one of our readers was interested in doing a Photo shoot with you how much would something like that cost?

Angel: Pricing usually runs about $250 an hour, but I rarely stick with that because each shoot is totally different and requires unique work and detail from me, thus affecting price and time commitment. Don’t check my website, check with me, please. I’ve also been known to work for trade.

TftCN: An interveiw with our Twizted Pirate Arrrt Winner

TftCN: An interveiw with our Twizted Pirate Arrrt Winner

 

My name is Scott Ward. First and foremost, I am a pirate in my dark heart  of hearts.
I am honored to be recognized by the Twizted Sails Pirate  Arrrrt Contest. It is a great thrill to win.
My “pirate” name/persona is  a pirate clergyman “The Reverend Dr Scott”, he is a leading practitioner of  Pirateology. As the “hostage” of the Crimson Storm of the Colorado Rogues, I am  also their “mob lawyer” and occasionally I also practice a little medical  mixology in my various piratical guises. Obviously, The Rev is a wee bit of a  fraud LOL. Hey I said I am a pirate, right?
I do a little business on the  side as “scottozoid art&salvage” which is digital photography and graphic  design. This is mostly a hobby, but I got into it originally because I wanted  some stuff done for a few events I had organized, and there really wasn’t anyone  else to turn to at the time who would do the sort of stuff I wanted, mostly  posters and t-shirts. I am influenced by all periods of Art History, but  especially from the rock music poster art of the 1960’s and 1970’s and the  eclectic aesthetic of that era.
I am located in Dallas but travel to  Denver several times a year. I plan to march with the Rogues on Opening Day at  the Colorado Renaissance Festival this year when they take over the Pirates Pub.  My pirate poetry troupe, the Seadog Slam, will be performing at Brethren Con  this fall, and I will be vending some of my t-shirt designs along with Kathy  Bodnar (“Hacksaw” of the Crimson Storm) at our booth “Fabriquewerx”
The  works I have for sale right now are t-shirt designs, promoting our Mexican  Caribbean pirate group “Los Piratas del Caribe Mexicano” (The Pirates of the  Mexican Caribbean) we have an annual pirate party and sunset sail on the island  of Isla Mujeres, just off the coast from Cancun. The phrase “Dead Pirates Don’t  Get No Booty” is the unofficially official 2012 motto for Los Piratas. Hacksaw  and I will be promoting our party/pirate gathering at Brethren Con this  fall.
The current t-shirts we have for sale and ready to go are on the  Fabriquewerx site on e-Bay:  http://stores.ebay.com/FABRIQUEWERX-STUDIO-by-kgb
Some of my more  esoteric stuff is available as print-on-demand at Zazzle:  http://www.zazzle.com/scottozoid
For more information about our  annual pirate gatherin and party in Mexico, come see us at Brethren Con or check  our Los Piratas del Caribe Mexicano group page on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/161900773850613/
We would love to see our pirate comrades join us for a sunset sail and  pirate party on the Bahia de Mujeres in the Mexican Caribbean. “Somos Piratas”  means “We Are Pirates” and that is our toast when we sail together.
Vaya con Queso The Reverend Dr Scott
 TGIF! Congratulations again to our winner. See you next week.  ~ Tempest Stormbringer
