After all these years working as a photographer to fund my art, I found myself uninspired to create art. How terrible!! After some reflection, I realized I hadn't picked up my camera just to take pictures for myself in months. I found that I needed to reconnect with it, with my passion for photography. So, after bringing my camera with me everywhere I went for months on end and forcing myself to take photos the whole way, I realized that I loved to take portraits. This was something I never found a huge pull towards before, as I prefer the quiet and calm of a forest over the unpredictable chaos of people. I guess three kids, a dog, chickens, a messy house and a business to run have worn me down and re-defined what chaos is. What calm is.
Now that my photography business work has shifted, I've found a fulfilment within myself that has allowed for creative expression in the studio again. I have't been out there to create yet, but I've been rolling some ideas around and I'm getting pretty excited about them. For now though, check out the new work I'm doing behind the camera with people to photograph. Mostly little people.
