Chicago freelance photographer of 8 years working mainly with fashion. I am a passionate and enthusiastic individual who loves to share my vision and creativity with others.
Where do you get inspiration? Sometimes there are days where it feels hard to be inspired. So I walk around the city to clear my head, not looking for anything in particular, then I’ll come upon something great and go with it.
What inside scoop can you give? Do it because you love it! Be willing to work long and hard and sometimes for very little money. Do not expect to be an overnight success. I’m not asking you to be taken advantage of, but you will know when the right job comes along. If you don’t feel right about something, graciously walk away.
What do you tell your friends to buy? I honestly can’t recall the last time I told a friend what to buy.
What thing do you use that’s remarkably good? This might sound silly to most, but for photography you need to use your creative/artistic instincts, and try to have a broad vision of things. Don’t be afraid to try new things. Even if they don’t work out, at least you tried!
Is there something new or something classic that you adore? I adore architecture for many reasons. Whether on a building, a car, or a person, I can take my same vision of architecture and apply it to a rusty old truck in a junk yard and make it look what I have been told is artsy, when all I was doing in my point of view was taking a great picture of a rusty old truck. I adore the human body for the lines are each different, yet simple and am able to trace the refinement it sometimes may hold. By surrounding yourself with other people of your profession you will start to get great ideas and see deeper into a subject.
