MAKE GOOD ART
"i'm serious. husband runs off with a politician? make good art. leg crushed and then eaten by mutated boa constrictor? make good art. irs on your trail? make good art. cat exploded? make good art. somebody on the internet thinks what you do is stupid or evil or it's all been done before? make good art. probably things will work out somehow, and eventually time will take the sting away, but that doesn't matter. do what only you do best. make good art.” neil gaiman, author
first of all, i want to thank the amazing models who have graced me with their presence.
i am first and foremost a portrait photographer. as you can see from my pictures, i don't rely on fancy props or sets. i do however very much rely on creating a sense of quiet intimacy, intelligence and sensuality. a picture of a beautiful model with no passion, no mischievousness, no story behind her eyes is of no use to me.
for me that means emotional and artistic fearlessness is a must, as is tons of enthusiasm. i like happy models.
also - please understand that i am not looking to shoot dozens of good pictures. i am looking to create that one extraordinary image that will still look amazing in fifty years.
