The Personal Projects > Burning Personal Questions

Burning Personal Questions

PERSONAL PROJECTS ARE AN INTEGRAL PART OF MY WORK AND MY EVERYDAY LIFE.

HOW DO YOU GO ABOUT DECIDING WHAT TO SHOOT? I have recurring themes, for sure, like making the mundane interesting. I truly believe there is a great photo five feet from you at all times. And I am in search of said photo when I shoot personal work.

DO SUBJECTS CHOOSE YOU, OR DO YOU CHOOSE THEM? I choose them.

DO YOU EVER DO VOLUNTEER WORK WITH YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY? Absolutely. I’ve donated session fees and print sales to causes over the years.

IF I CAN GIVE BACK, I DO.

HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHICH PROJECTS ARE A GOOD FIT AND WHICH ARE NOT? I go with my gut. I’m a pretty happy guy, so I shoot pretty happy stuff. No nudes, it’s just not what I do. No dark conceptual stuff that requires lots of setup. I’m more of a photo hunter, finding the perfect image given any set of circumstances, than I am a photo maker, meaning I put tons of thought into production.
