Web Exclusive: A Conversation with Jill Paider

For our March/April urban design issue, FORM features the stunning work of photographer Jill Paider. As a special Web extra, we had the chance to talk to her about her career and philosophy. Look for more special FORMmag.net-only features in the coming days, weeks and months.

Now highly-sought after and specializing in architecture, travel and food, Jill Paider didn’t set out to be a photographer. After grad school at the London School of Economics, where she received a Master’s in world politics, Paider was just about to take a job when her plans hit a major snag. “Right before I was supposed to start, I found out that my work permit didn't go through,” she recalls. “I enrolled in a post-graduate photography program at the ninth hour to maintain my UK visa. I fell in with photography shortly thereafter and have been doing it professionally ever since.”

In her 10-plus year career, assignments for advertising agencies, design firms and magazines have taken the LA–based Paider to 50 countries and recently included a self-led, around-the-world architecture trip—a career highlight. Shooting architecture appeals to her because “I love modern design and the art of capturing a space and telling its story,” she says. “I aim for images that are emotive and give the viewer a definitive sense of place.

She’s hard at work on an editorial shoot at the moment but still finds time to focus on her own projects. “Personal work is what art buyers and clients ultimately want to see,” she notes. You can check out more of Paider’s professional work on her Web site and blog, along with more of her own work, including a selection of Instagram shots from her iPhone. To see her work in our new issue, become a print or digital subscriber here.
