Been taking a lot of time to think about what started me off on my image making journey. First it was stories, and then drawing and painting was a way to bridge that gap. It allowed me to more effectively communicate with people.
When it came to photos and video it was as an outlet after my father died. I just picked up a camera and went half way around the world virtually alone , to just figure some shit out. I entirely fell into the role on a whim through a phonecall from a friend.
Now I'm at a point where I actually do this for a living and I'm connecting a few more dots along the way.
This shoot specifically takes me back to my art school days. Figure drawing. Form , light , texture and flow. The basics.
Going forward I'm focusing more on the art and letting go of the hang ups of the work mentality. Being business minded won't go away, just I see it as a point of importance to stay connected to the source of it all.
Stills from a scrapped project.
A year ago things were a little simpler, but this year is much clearer.
