j-siao asked: Would you say that your style of photography is all original? or do you have any influences that effect your pictures?
I have about a million influences that inspire me - and they say everything has been done before… But i think that if you want to be original you just have to stay true to yourself as an individual. I am inspired by what has come before me, so i proceed with an acceptance of that, but when i shoot i try to focus on capturing what is unique to my own experience. I try my best to stay knowledgeable about what has been done before, and i try to lose myself in the moment and just go for pure, unfiltered feeling. Then hopefully something transcendent happens!
…Sometimes i just shoot people with a good haircut in nice lighting.
