What do you do for a crust? (How do you make money/where do you work)
Photography. Events and other freelance work 🙂
Can you tell us about your creative background?
I believe photography was just one of those things destined to be in my life. I always carried a disposable/reusable film camera around when i was younger. Thats really where it all began.
What do you do with your free time?
Read, learn, and create.
Tips for making your ideas and dreams come to life…
Get out there. People have everything you want in life. So talk to other People. That advice is from Grant Cardone.
What inspires you to shoot film?
It brings up my childhood and happiness; To be content with what is. The digital age can be a double edged sword. I think digital is great but film.. its not easily manipulated, its more expensive to keep shooting for the “perfect” photo. So it teaches us contentment. It also teaches us to think things through more carefully before hitting the shutter (in theory.)
How did you come to connect with Indisposable Concept?
It seems film photography and disposables are making a comeback, why do you think that is?
People realize that there is perfection in imperfection.
What does the future hold for you? Work, holidays, projects, adventures….?
Doing whatever that feels true to my soul’s journey.
How would you describe your photographic style?
Dreamy, abstract, and spiritual.
Who or what influences you creatively?
Currently i like tarot. I have a few photo series inspired by certain tarot cards. Other then that.. spiritual concepts or anything that looks beautiful. It can be as simple as an outfit or a model’s face that sets forth an idea.
What’s the biggest issue facing the world right now?
Decentralization vs. Centralization. I think many things are based on this idea. The idea that people want their power and rights back.
Worry less about….? Focus more on….?
Appearances and ego. Focus more on being content with self and empowering others.
How did you find the experience of using the disposable camera? Enjoyable or painful?
How did it make you feel not being able to see the photos as they were taken and not being able to edit or know what the photos turned out like?
Content but somewhat uncertain.
From your roll of film what was your fave image and why?
021 because it reminds me of the time my father and I took a boat to the Statue of Liberty. That was around the age i started using a disposable camera and getting into photography.
Would you be interested in shooting another roll?
YES of course!
Is there anything else we could include or introduce to make the experience more interesting?
Did you enjoy the aspect of shooting a selfie?
What did you think of the outcomes when you saw the final photos?
Not exactly what i had in mind. The photos were darker than i thought they would be in shaded areas.
Would you approach the concept differently if you had another go?
Yes. Originally i set to shoot a model but things went array and i improvised and just had fun with it. But i would love to try shooting an editorial style with a disposable camera next time.
Would you enter into the concept if it was set up in a competition format with prizes to be won?
Sure! But not necessary. I think it’s fun and a meaningful project as it is. Those that believe in the message will naturally want to submit their photos.
Would you like to see your photos presented in a gallery exhibition environment?
Yes! That would be very cool!!!
Is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
