Most artists have a point in their life where they knew this was meant for them. Do you have that moment?
Documenting our children’s lives is so important. What is your secret to not getting bored with your daily life?
If there was only one moment you could photograph for the rest of your days, what would it be?
Personally I find more inspiration from things outside of photography. Where do you find inspiration most?
We all go through periods of mental blocks. How do you push past times of not finding inspiration?
Who in your life inspires your art the most?
What inspires you more - light or movement?
Documentary and lifestyle photography are different to some. How would you define them?
I think of lifestyle as a more candid stylized session, where the activities are all picked out, everyone is dressed perfect and coordinating, the lighting is perfect, and the clients are told where to sit/stand during the session for best light and so everyone is in the frame, but no real posing is done. Usually it’s in a home so it’s a very personal portrait session. Documentary is not usually planned out, the clients aren’t told what to wear or not wear, maybe there are activities, but the photographer doesn’t do any prompting or posing or arranging of the furniture or changing of the lighting.
Would you rather continue with your life or restart it?
Definitely continue it.
Would you rather reverse one decision you make every day or be able to stop time for 10 seconds every day?
Would you rather never be able to speak again or always have to say everything that is on your mind?
Would you rather have no internet or no cell phone?
Would you rather lose the ability to use GPS for the rest of your life or lose the ability to use a debit or credit card?
I would hate to be without a GPS. I don’t like getting lost.
Would you rather have eyes that can film everything or ears that can record everything?
Would you rather have unlimited storage space on your iPhone or unlimited storage space in real-life?
Unlimited storage space on my phone.
Would you rather walk the Great Wall of China or Amazon River?
Would you rather win an Academy Award or an Olympic Gold Medal?
