And… argh…. Soon I will be able to sell prints. There was a problem with the company I was using for print sales and they’re getting it corrected.
ALSO, I have a book coming out soon with a ton of my work! I’ll have more info on that soon!
Awww - that is sweet! I wish I could shoot everyone!
btw - I checked out your tumblr and I liked it! I saw a few of my pics on there and saw a bunch of friends!
when I first started shooting I read an interview of a photographer where the photographer said something to the effect of “I’m known for shooting women, but half my works comes from shooting men.” I don’t recall the photographer or the magazine since everything was a blur at that stage (I just remember reading it at the Borders on State Street in Chicago) but that quote stuck with me. 5 years later, I find that I’m mostly known for shooting women, but a little less than half my income comes from shooting men.
*This photo was taken from the only Mens Fashion story I have ever shot. It was shot nearly 3 years ago. Maybe it’s time to do another mens story!
1) Nothing. I think people who look for regret are sad individuals. There’s a better way of living and thinking.
2) Not at all! My clients are cool people and they know what they’re getting. Although I have been shooting more elaborate setups, my clients are clear that they are hiring me because I’m able to do something special and different.
3) Nah. I want to use my time for good and productive advancements.
Yes I do. I didn’t work with them for a while but changed after I met with a few and my work was at a certain level. My main assistant is Brian, I expect him to help me, have fun on shoots, and experiment within and alongside my goals/paramaters.
I am now working with interns too- I expect them to help with the important office shit that I can’t stand doing, have fun, and be creative problem solvers.
Like all the other magazines I work with, they contacted me (I never/rarely contact magazines/clients and I heavily rely on word of mouth). I really liked their format and they gave me lots of latitude to do my thing so I jumped at the opportunity! It’s definitely one of my most favorite publication and people to work with!
