We're Talking With Sony Artisan Of imagery & Fine Artist Brooke Shaden | Alpha Universe Podcast

Alpha Universe Podcast

In this episode of the Alpha Universe podcast, Christopher Robinson, editor of AlphaUniverse.com speaks with fine art photographer and Sony Artisan of Imagery Brooke Shaden about her new book, Reflection.  Brooke Shaden is one of the most inspiring artists working with a camera today. To call her work simply self portraits barely scratches the surface and only hints at the layers with each image. She is a Sony Artisan of Imagery for whom the photographs she takes with camera and lens just mark the beginnings of her process. In her book, Reflection, Brooke has assembled a collection of her work and organized it thematically. We spoke about the book, how it came about and her interest in exploring dark themes.

Brooke Shaden on Finding Beauty in Hard Times

STORY Podcast

Something you hear our last year described as a lot is a “dark time” or a “dark season.” Getting to the end of all that was described as a “new day” or a “new morning” for us. And there’s a lot of truth to that, since so many of us lost so much in 2020. But it’s worth asking if our immediate impulses to avoid, ignore or rush through those dark times and get right to the morning is the healthiest way to deal with pain and hardship. Last year at STORY, we asked that question, and one of our most talked about speakers, Brooke Shaden, had some really great thoughts to share. Brooke is a wonderful artist who uses her work to explore things like darkness, pain, death and decay. She wants to find beauty in those things, and hopefully help us have a better understanding of the dark and hard times in our own life. It’s an experience she’s walked through, and now she wants to help others do it too.

Process Driven 42: Brooke Shaden

Jeffery Saddoris: Everything

Brooke Shaden is one of a select few artists who manages to consistently create work that is so visceral and resonates so deeply that it makes me want to step into the picture so I can inhabit that world, even for a moment. Her work is sometimes haunting, sometimes dark, sometimes disturbing, but always interesting and challenging enough, both conceptually and technically, that I’ve been a fan for years and am always eager to see what she comes up with next. I’ve wanted to talk to her for a long time and I’m so grateful that we could make this happen.

Brooke Shaden - Love and Permanence

This Conversation with Jed Taufer

Brooke Shaden is a conceptual fine art photographer specializing in self-portraiture. After graduating college with degrees in film and English, she turned to photography to tell the stories she always wanted to let loose. Photography provided a medium that was faster than film with the richness of story that writing had, and she built a career from those passions. Her work has received awards for it’s cohesion and storytelling abilities. Many of the images are dark yet timeless and whimsical, creating a sometimes disturbing yet beautiful montage of worlds that people feel connected to. Shaden’s work reminds us that there is dark and light inside us all, and that element has allowed for openness and sharing of the ideology behind the works, garnering more than one million followers online.  When not creating personal work, Brooke is a dedicated philanthropist, teaching self-expression workshops for survivors of human trafficking. She has also started photography schools for the same community in India and Thailand. Brooke lives in a small mountain town with her husband and kitties.

Brooke Shaden - Conceptual Self-Portrait Photographer & Artist

The Photography Lounge

In this first episode of The Photography Lounge, your host Alastair Jolly sits down with Brooke Shaden and they discuss the backstory of how Brooke became one of the leading photographers in the world of conceptual self-portrait photography.We learn how photography was not the path that Brooke had ever considered and how her early career in the film industry lead her to find a future where she could work individually.It's hard to imagine how someone who is such a leader in the photo community, gives so much to supporting others and educating others can be a self-confessed introvert and someone who does not like working with people. Despite this, we discuss how much she gives to her community, her workshops and her humanitarian work with The Light Space.Of course, we also talk about her approach to her photography and the often dark subject matters, dealing with death and decay, that she visits. Even though she is someone who is 'scared of everything', Brooke manages to portray the beauty and positivity in the darkness.Brooke has been a leading Flickr Pro for 12 years now.Learn more about Brooke:Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/brookeshadenWebsite: http://brookeshaden.com/gallery/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brookeshaden/Promoting Passion: https://www.promotingpassion.com/The Light Space: http://www.thelightspace.org/Find out all about the features SmugMug & Flickr have to offer at:https://www.smugmug.com/https://www.flickr.comFollow SmugMug:Facebook: http://facebook.com/SmugMugTwitter: http://twitter.com/SmugMugInstagram: http://instagram.com/smugmugBlog: https://www.smugmug.com/lensFollow Flickr:Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/flickr/Twitter: https://twitter.com/FlickrInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/flickr/Blog: https://blog.flickr.net/

Brooke Shaden - What is Weird?

This Conversation with Jed Taufer

You know those conversations where you start off going down one path and it’s turns into something you never saw coming? Brooke Shaden and I sat together again to talk about, “What is Weird”? We also wanted to cover the concept of “selling out” and some other things, and we did that. But with Brooke, you always get more than you bargained for. She’s very adept at underpromising and overdelivering. She’s also wise beyond her years…an old soul, so to speak. And for me, that means she always has something new for me to learn. So yeah, we discuss the concept of what weird is among many other things, and, as has happened many times before, I walk away with some fresh perspectives. I think you will, too. Stay home, friends. And stay safe. This, too, shall pass.
