Hank Pearl joins us as our 20th guest. In this episode of Professional Geek Podcast, hosts Mark Beers and Blaire Knight-Graves interview Hank Pearl, photographer and owner of Black Pearl Photo. Hank specializes in event photography, album cover photography, and product photography with a focus on all things subculture. His photography skills have been tapped by Red Bull, Cirque du Soleil, Decibel Magazine, National Rock Review, Wizard World Comic Con, and the Atlas Moth cover for their album “The Old Believer”. But Hank’s passion is for photographing all things weird and what he calls alternatively authentic people: burlesque, LGBTQIA* events and pride festivals, metal concerts, and other odd gatherings.

Hank dives into what it takes to be a freelance photographer, how to get started with gear and cameras for photography, how to find photography gigs and make money freelancing, what education is needed for photography, and how to balance passion with career while building a portfolio. He also discusses his love of metal music, comic books, and film noir.
