For as long as I can remember, I’ve drawn inspiration from films. Whether it’s a dramatic, wide scenic shot or how they color grade a film, I’ve found myself imitating them in my portrait work for years.
I love photographing dancers! There is something so magical about the way dancers move… I don’t know if it’s the fluidity of their movements or the fact that I can give them a rough idea of a pose and they turn it into something incredibly graceful. Whatever it is, photographing them definitely puts me in my happy place.
I love beauty. Someone once told me that beauty feeds me. And…she was right. Looking at beautiful things – a gorgeous image, wandering around a beautifully designed shopping center (Santana Row anyone?), or looking at something that is amazingly handcrafted, has always given me a boost.
