I think the only word that describes how I feel about photography, and really life is "fluid."
-"A continuous, amorphous substance whose molecules move freely past one another and that has the tendency to assume the shape of its container."
I am that continuous, amorphous substance and my container is the camera. I do not wish to be placed in a mold and neither should my photography. My photos move free past the genres that make up photography meeting somewhere in the middle and shooting out in all directions touching on them all Fine art, Fashion, commercial, editorial, music, event, documentary, travel. Life happens fast and in so many different ways, I happen to always have a camera on me so that I can catch life and slow it down for the rest of us.
I finished my A.A degree in fine art photography, I'm currently attending the California College of art where I'm continuing my education in photography and getting a bachelor degree. The next train of thought is about going as far as to get a masters but we will see where this artistic journey takes me.
I joined MM because I guess you could say I have more of a background in fine art but I want to branch out into commercial. I really enjoy people and what I can bring out of them when photographing. I like to make them feel as comfortable as possible so that I can help them shine. Since I do have a background in fine art I can say that I specialize in B&W film photography and I wish to be as creative and diverse as my photography hero Gordon Parks who got his start in fashion photography but managed to work for Vogue as well as Life magazine.
"At first I wasn't sure that I had the talent, but I did know I had a fear of failure, and that fear compelled me to fight off anything that might abet it." -Gordon Parks.
