IN THE LOUPE: Jeremy Kidd

Jeremy Kidd Jeremy Kidd

Home and Studio: Venice, Calif., or wherever his pictures take him (jeremykidd.com).

Hobbies: Lots, including surfing and guitar playing. “I write songs, [do some] martial arts, soccer,” he says. “I’ve skated a little.”

Equipment: A Canon 5D and “any tripod that I have handy,” Kidd says. “I love my Epson 3800 printer. I love Photoshop.” But, he adds, “I feel that people get too caught up in the technology of the equipment; ultimately it is the quality and vision of the piece that determines its success.”

Best time to shoot: “After dusk, when there’s still some ambient ultraviolet light but it ap-pears to be pretty dark to the naked eye.”

Recent exhibitions: Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art in Ridgefield, Conn.; the Orange County Museum of Art in Los Angeles; the Irvine Fine Arts Center in Irvine, Calif.; Laguna Art Museum in Laguna Beach, Calif.; and the Deutsche Bank in London. Advice for aspiring photographers: “Keep working; you have to keep being out there,” he says. “Keep pushing; keep showing your work around.”
