Amazing things happen when we find inspiration. I have been blessed with eyes that see life differently. Through this, I find inspiration to tell people’s stories. Photography is the language I can speak to anyone, anywhere. It can penetrate souls when words are not enough, and with one click can capture a moment for eternity.
I am not an amazing photographer. I am not trained. I am, however, passionate. As I begin to explore this art and everything it offers, I know I fall more in love with my obnoxiously heavy camera every day.
If you haven’t listened to me gawk over my ultimate online obsession, Jasmine Star, you’re missing out. She’s brilliant, self-taught, and annoyingly helpful. Jasmine inspired me to better. At everything. She helped me take a chance and commit to what I love, even if she doesn’t know it. I will be forever grateful for the role she played in my decisions, and know that God used her to bless me exponentially.
Another photographer that has inspired me to reach farther, be bolder, and make a statement is Manny Librodo. This man’s work speaks for itself. As you can imagine, I was completely starry-eyed during our entire workshop session today. Manny is ALSO self-taught (gotta love it) and has composed some of the most breathtaking images I’ve ever come across. Thank you, Manny, for offering your time, insight, and heart. You’ve got that “something extra” and our session was amazing. What a first lesson, eh?!
Thank you both for helping me to the next level.
From today… We met up at a condemned building in Bangkok with loads of graffiti, and used only natural light.
