In hard times we all have to dig deep to improve ourselves and discover what really drives us to create images that speak to ourselves as well as to other. The process of creating in an evolution and in my personal evolution as a creator I have created ugly images at times and beautiful images at times, but I'm never perfect and that is the beauty of it all.
I once interviewed a famous dancer who express his frustration with creating a dance piece that was killed by the press saying, "I felt like I wanted to pick up my marbles off the ground and run away", however the bad press pushed him to work harder than if he'd received rave reviews all the time. As an artist we can't expect everyone to see our vision but those that do will hire us over and over again, and when we look back over our career's hopefully we will have captured the essence of our life through the unique beauty of our lens.
Always Dream Big
