WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO EXPLORE?
The biggest motivation to explore I find is to depart myself from the daily routine and all that I’m used to so I can immerse myself into something completely different, as it’s just too easy to slide into a comfortable and simple lifestyle. Exploring is a very important part in the process of growing, not only as an artist, but as a person as well. It’s where you discover yourself, who you are and what you what to be.
WHERE DO YOU FIND YOUR INSPIRATION?
I find inspiration from a collection of different sources, but the most important one in my life has always been music. It has this ability to draw out memories, moments, feelings, all these things that inspire me to create and explore. I find it all rather crazy when I think about the things that music can do.
FILM VS DIGITAL?
I enjoy shooting with both. Although I do shoot digital predominantly, I believe there’ll always be a time and place for film. Film is a much more enriching experience but just not as practical as digital can be in certain situations.
WHAT'S YOUR MOST MEMORABLE PHOTO?
It's difficult to narrow it down to one as each one has it’s own story and memories with it. That being said, I took one of my favorite photos when my friends and I went on a road trip to explore this abandoned feldspar and quartz mine. Formally one of the largest mines in North America, I had climbed up the side of a rock wall to gain a higher perspective when I saw my girlfriend on the other side of the mine just by herself. I was truly blown away by the sheer scale of the mine.
