I debated on whether I would make a post or not because 1) I’m not the blogging type and 2) who cares what I have to say? (edit: At the time of this writing, 1 person does. Thanks Elissa for following me, you’re a true friend and will always be awesome in my eyes!)
With that said, I felt I needed to put this out there.
Photography really is everything to me. I’ve got a bad memory, it’s how I remember things. I’m introverted. That’s actually a skill in photography. Those who like to sit back and watch are rewarded with amazing candid opportunities. It’s how I interact with the world. It might not be apparent, but if you ever see a shot of mine and think it’s a little different or even weird, that’s me wishing the world was more like that and trying to change things. It’s my zen, my moment of clarity. When I’m behind the camera, all that matters is getting that shot, everything else is just noise that I can easily tune out. It’s also me appreciating life. I just want to share all of these moments and things that I find are beautiful.
Some may criticize and say but you shoot fashion. I shoot fashion for two reasons 1) I see it as a stepping stone to bigger things 2) to keep me humble and gain perspective. If the worst thing in my life is “oh crap, I gotta shoot some models today”, I can’t really complain, can i?
