We admire your conceptual portraits combined with landscapes. Do you plan every shot as it comes or does any planning go into it? Please tell us a little bit about your process.
I would say it’s half and half. I’ll try to plan most my shoots, but there’s times where I just talk my camera for a walk and see what I find. Often I’ll be shooting something I had planned out and then I’ll change it because I’ve been inspired to do something different. Most of my landscape photos are unplanned, I just always make sure to take my camera with me when traveling.
What relationship do you have with your models, and how much influence do they have in each piece of work produced?
When I’m not taking self portraits, I’m usually shooting close friends. I always find it easier to take photos of someone I know very well and can get along with. when I have an idea in mind I’ll usually know who I want to model for the image as well.
