I'm a writer, filmmaker, and photographer. To me, everything is story. What does the image say? What does it mean? Who will care? Photography is like the needle on the creative record, you only get a single moment to tell your truth. I really like big outdoor shoots where the location is a few miles off the beaten path. And shortly after the exhaustion of the hike, I think... Wow, I really like studio shoots too.
The beauty of an outdoor shoot is adding illumination to a moment to compliment it, the artistry of studio work is subtracting light information to carve your subject out of the darkness. I often say I shoot products for money, people for fame, and animals for love... but the truth is, I love it all.
