Camera and Inspiration #35 | PPN | AI and Toy Photography a fun discussion with Scott Bourne
This is episode #35 of the Camera and Inspiration show at “PPN - Photo Podcast Network”
After a longer than anticipated break, Marco invited back his friend and PPN co-founder Scott Bourn to the 6. PPN birthday anniversary show. They did some catching up on what they had been up to since the last episode aired and then covered Scott’s new photo genre “toy photography” which later transitioned into covering the good, the bad and the implications that Ai photography may have on the industry and society.

Inspirational Photographer of the Month:
Scott picked Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto (born 1948 in Tokyo). Scott is particularly impressed that Hiroshi Sugimoto has reinvented himself and his photography many times and always became a true master at the genres that he worked at. Sugimoto has won many international photo awards and exhibited his work in museums and galleries around the world. You can find out more about Hiroshi Sugimoto by visiting his website: https://www.sugimotohiroshi.com
Here is a video interview where Hiroshi Sugimoto talks about his diorama work: https://youtu.be/q9GiyPbLYPg
Toy Photography and some pros and Cons of the Development of AI in Photography.
In the main segment, Scott explained how he got into toy photography and shared some insights on his pre- and post-production approach for his impressive photos. In his process, Scott also saw lots of advantages to partially using AI in his post-processing workflow and has since embraced it and pushed his work to new frontiers.
This led to an interesting discussion between Marco and Scott on the recent developments of AI in photography and how this may influence the photo industry and society in the future.
Inspirational Photo Book Pick of the Month: “Conceptual Forms and Mathematical Models” by Hiroshi Sugimoto.
Scott was so inspired by the work of Hirosho Sugimoto, that he also picked his book: “Conceptual Forms and Mathematical Models”. The photos in this book show the degree of perfection that Hiroshi Sugimoto strives for in his images. Capturing still life forms in technical perfection while creating interesting museum art is what can be learned from the images in this book.
The book is published by: Hatje Cantz; Illustrated Edition (24. March 2015)
