As an artist it’s important for me to always keep working.
Whether you have a full-time job, traveling all over the world or just walking around your neighborhood – it’s always vital to keep working on your art. The thing that can be tricky though is what if you have no where to go or lost inspiration? (more…)
Christmas is only a few days away and people are scrambling all over the streets purchasing last-minute presents.
Or if you are like me, you are out to find deals specifically for you! Although it may sound very vain and selfish to purchase things for yourself on Christmas, if you are just starting your photography adventure you are going to buy the most important thing on your list: a camera.
Now for a first timer who walks into a camera shop it can be very overwhelming. There are millions of cameras all out there – how to
It’s December! Can you believe this? Only few weeks until the new year!
And of course this is the time of year where everyone reflects on what has happened in 2015. Since I have been MIA for the last couple of months I will try and fill you in on what I have been brewing up for 2016:
One of the things that I have been exploring a lot lately is landscapes.
I’m mainly a portrait photographer and I love to spend one-on-one time with people. However after shooting the same thing over and over, you kind of get into a comfortable state….which isn’t a good sign. Why? Because you aren’t growing as an artist. Sometimes you just need to put your expertise aside and try something new. (more…)
Has anyone ever told you that being an artist or a photographer is nothing but a hobby…not a career?
This has always been a struggle for my when I was growing up. My father would call my love for art and photography a “hobbie” and that it’ll pass – how I needed to focus on something more stable like a desk job. And for a while I did sit behind a desk and
Has anyone every told you that you are just too weird…and it made you feel bad about yourself?
I’ve been having people tell me that I am weird, crazy, “special”, different…the lists goes on and on. I’ve even had family members come up to me and tell me that they are/were “worried about me” because of how different I am. As an artist, we are considered to be somewhat of a
There comes a time where artists have to make choices.
It can be a number of things: what gallery to choose, where the next job is going to be or what new series to create. We make choices for the better and to live happier. However when it comes to matters of the heart, things can get a little tricky and an artist can loose their way. Which then brings up an important question: The heart or the art?
Has anyone ever told you that you are “suppose” to be at a certain point in your life?
Here is an example: When you’re dating someone for a long period of time, the questions that’s asked is “When are you getting married?”. When you graduate college: “When are you getting a job?”. When you get your first drivers license: “When are you getting a car?” (more…)
I once heard a joke from a man who said “What do artists and coffee filters have in common?” and when I asked for the answer, he replied “They’re disposable!”
I remember being so furious I stormed out and thought to myself that he was ignorant and had no clue what he was talking about. It never crossed my mind ever again until recently… (more…)
Have you ever been so focused on your artform that once you are done with it…..you realize you are all alone?
One of my favorite photographers I go to for inspiration is Zack Arias. He is a commercial and music photographer and has really resonated with me when I was let go of my job. While watching one of his lectures on Creative Live about photography and family – it hit me. (more…)
