Questions asked by:

Instagram

  • @anthonyclarkarch: Great pic and I always enjoy your work...how does a Zoom photo shoot work?
  • @anthonyclarkarch: And how much editing is involved
  • @andreimusat10: How exactly is it shot through Zoom? Can you explain the process behind it?
  • @sannyvision: What’s your fav thing about shooting through Zoom?
  • @jrmyk12: May I ask if this was achieved using Lightform?
  • @unmantle_seats: Everyone has an imagination, but some don’t express it as much as others. How do you think innovation happens?
  • @umantle_seats: That’s a bold statement, seeing that people live longer and chronic diseases are becoming the new pandemics. Everyone has an imagination, but some don’t express it as much as others. How do you think innovation happens?
  • @hummusaintgreek: Will the film be available on any platforms after the showing?
  • @borreakkersdijk: Really...future? Welcome to the digital era where you can capture slow-mo and have a close up of textile to make it look tactile
  • @astorhugo: What do you mean ‘heartbreaking loneliness’? What’s the story behind the pic? How do you know he’s lonely?
  • @galggunaguoriainen: What exactly mades it sad? I’m not following..how do you know he’s lonely?
  • @johntuckerallen: This AI was a product of human intention and ingenuity...so if another form of life created something similar...would it still share these relatable and recognisable visual attributes?
  • @_markdavidford: When David Chipperfield was designing your house, did you specify with him where you’d like the window light to come in through the kitchen with particular regard to photographing roses on your kitchen table? As I understand it, you never photograph your roses in any other room in your house.
  • @joseph_waite_ : So when do we get the site
  • @andreabelluso: Isn’t it kind of obvious right now that politics or politicians never have and never will have the well-being of the people and the plane as their top priority?
  • @martin.luttecke: Can you please take the ‘In Fashion’ series back?
  • @damionberger: Systemic and structural corruption baked into the system at almost every level! Ulike local and state prosecutors. Federal prosecutors are not directly elected and potentially less conflicted. Could congress pass a law to grant federal prosecutors power to impose jurisdiction over the State or county for cases that involve questions over police conduct?
  • @nathansabate.ntn: Mr Knight, are you aware of any good movie that take clues from the fashion film genre, with the artistic aspect to it and not just a nice styling?

YouTube

  • Jacob Aars: How would you describe your working relationship with your assistants? How do you work together and what do you think makes a good assistant? I know several of your former assistants have become great photographers and image makers after working for you, so I’m curious on the process and the way you work together.
