Too Beautiful To Live Host: Luke Burbank

Posted by John Keatley / Filed under Videos

Luke Burbank, host of Too Beautiful To Live by photographer John Keatley.

Luke Burbank is the host of a podcast called “Too Beautiful To Live”.  TBTL used to be a radio show until it got canceled.  After switching to a self produced podcast the show became much more popular reaching 1.5 million downloads a month.  He told writer Matt Halverson one of the benefits of doing a podcast is you don’t have to wear pants, which is where the idea of photographing him in a bathroom came from.

This is a short video documenting the construction of the set and some footage from the shoot.  I hope you enjoy it.

Client: Seattle Met
Art Director: Benjamen Purvis
Set Builder: Brett Thomson

Great shot John. Love the concept.
Is the key that high up beauty dish or grid that we see in one of the slides? With the two side softboxes as fill for the set and feathering for the subject?
