Most artists have a point in their life where they knew this was meant for them. Do you have that moment?
Not really. Creating art has always been a constant in my life. There was a point in my mid 20s where I thought I needed a career that was “traditional.” After about 6 years I was bored and in a way felt stunted. I think once I stepped away from choosing a career that was safe and let myself truly do what I love – that’s when I knew.
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?
Documentary tells a story – it allows the art to be raw, unfiltered and allows all of the rules to be broken. Lifestyle is that friend you have in school that is super cool and put together but does it effortlessly; it’s documentary with a little less edge. Documentary would so be caught smoking behind the bleachers after school. (smoking isn’t cool though kids, don’t do it.)
Would you rather continue with your life or restart 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?
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?
Would you rather walk the Great Wall of China or Amazon River?
Would you rather win an Academy Award or an Olympic Gold Medal?
Olympic Gold Medal
Would you rather be fabulously famous and poor or unknown and rich?
I honestly have no clue – both sound pretty unappealing to me.
