What inspired you to get into Photography?
Diane Arbus. Diane was the first photographer I really looked at. Her weird, but oddly amazing work had me so interested in what it was like to be a photographer. A year and a half or so after I graduated high school, I started an Internship at Quiksilver Headquarters working with the photographers and my inspiration really blossomed.
How long have you been shooting for?
I have been shooting since I was 14 years old.
What is your shooting style?
Documentary meets Fashion Lifestyle
What are your must have equipment for shoots?
50mm 1.2, hands down.
Where do you find your inspiration?
I do a lot of research. I look at a lot of different creative avenues. Insanely talented people inspire me. Music inspires me greatly. When I'm listening to a song, I usually have some artistic dialogue going on inside my head at the same time. I'm putting together a photo campaign as I sing the lyrics.
What is your favorite shoot you have done before?
Aside from the shoot I collaborated on with Revolt Society and Sharon, one of my favorite shoots has been a 70's boudoir inspired shoot I did in one of my close friends amazing home. I couldn't have asked for everything to come together so perfectly.
Where is your favorite places to shoot?
What camera do you currently shoot with?
Canon 5D Mark iii
What advice would you give to aspiring photographers
It's a lot of hard work, but if you want to do it, follow your gut and work your butt off. It's all worth it.
What is your number one source for marketing your business?
Networking with people!! I utilize Instagram a lot as well, seeing as it's the quickest way to see someones vibe and portfolio.
Where do you see yourself in the future
I see myself working 6 days a week on photo campaigns for big names. Working has always been one of my favorite things to do and because I do what I am passionate about for a living, I couldn't be happier.
