Choosing inspiration & connection over competition to build a true community and a united creative industry.

 

If you are Creative, I support you.

I’m completely self taught in photography and photoshop, and trust me, it's been a roller coaster.

So many things I’ve had to learn completely on my own by trial and error and just literally figuring it all out. The things I know now that I wish I'd known earlier. You can’t just ‘google’ a lot of the trade secrets. There’s been so many times that I’ve reached out with excitement to another Photographer or Artist and their work, only to be received with crickets or severed communication.

I’ve spent countless hours in Photoshop just experimenting with different tools and creating my own methods of achieving that perfect alluring look, as well as the additional countless hours spent on location, understanding the dynamics of natural light, and learning to tune my rhythms in with the rhythms of the clouds, the wind, the sunshine, and of course one of the most important rhythms, the interaction with my models. Some of the best decisions I ever made for my career early on were taking webinars and mentorships to learn different skills and perspectives that you can’t find anywhere in college, or that most industry professionals honestly don't want you to know.

This all took me a lot of time, and yes, definitely included moments of failure and feelings of hopelessness. Sometimes the struggle is real, everyone feels that and experiences it. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

If you are creative, I support you! I believe that if everyone is truly unique, than there is no competition because everyone has their own style. There's literally an entire world out there of billions of clients to make your market. I want to help you grow your own creative perspective and really take your skills to the next level!

You have a choice to isolate yourself from everyone and compete with everyone, or to connect yourself with everyone and compete with only yourself.
