Episode #8 of Russ Talks finds Mr. Russ Harrington talking about Keith Urban, Nicole Kidman, Amy Grant, Oklahoma, and coaching the sports Photographer. Russ has been busy! If you've seen Keith Urban's Ripcord album, or Amy Grant's new Tennessee Christmas Album, you've seen two of his recent clients. As of the recording date, Russ was in negotiation to photograph the incomparable Nicole Kidman! Did they connect? Did Russ land the job?

Along with his hectic shooting schedule, Russ has also been traveling to teach and mentor other Photographers. Our conversation today recounts his trip to Stillwater, Oklahoma, where Russ spent a day with the Athletics Photographer for Oklahoma State University--Mr. Bruce Waterfield. When you hear Bruce talk about his work at OSU, he sounds giddy!

  • How did he land the job that he thinks is the greatest in the world?
  • What surprises people about Bruce's job?
  • How has the job of sports photographer dramatically changed?

Maybe you're wondering why Russ spent the day coaching Bruce. As Russ is speaking to groups of Photographers, he's also taking time for one-on-one mentoring days. Imagine the look of your photography if you and Russ Harrington spent the day working in your space, with your equipment, your clients. That's what Bruce did--and here are a few of the results:
