Photography was always a hobby as I was originally a 3D Animator/Graphics designer.. that moved over to Video Production.. then 6 months
ago quit it all and settled into still photography only. They are all related and I pull from each skill set I have to create a final product. My
graphic skills helped in photo post production, video production skills helped with interaction and directing models.
My brain. :) We all know that photo gear are just tools to accomplish a final product. I believe a skilled artist should be able to use multiple
mediums. Granted certain tools make it easier than others… but we are in an age where multiple skill sets are invaluable.
I’d like to say adaptable. When I’m shooting for myself and not a commissioned work, I don’t want to pigeonhole a style; It’s really symbiotic to
mood, the model’s contributions, environment, etc.
I’ve got it all. From “toy” cameras to medium format- I’ll use it all.
Gosh, I literally am influenced every day! There are so many great photographers out there now a days that can get their work on the internet.
I have so many influences by genres, but if my arm were twisted to name a name… 5 words… British fashion photographer John French!
He was just pure classic, clean, inventive, his shooting was flawless and killer… and I’m jealous of that era of shooters!
Right now I’ve started a project working title called White- It’s my own exploration of shooting over exposed images.
Open up your world to a variety of influences and expand your horizons!
The only photographers I admire are the ones that get inspired and chase that inspiration to its completion, only to head to the next one!
