I miss the days of film, i know those days are gone and are never coming back. With that said, When i started seriously shooting it took time and money to experiment with different techniques. Film wasn’t cheap and neither was processing, it could be a week before seeing your negatives. Now you are able to see what you’re shooting instantaneously, making the learning curve a very short and fast one which is sure to change the art form. Whether that change will be for the better or for the worse, only time will tell.
Ansel Adams and Stanley Kubrick are two people who i draw inspiration from. Both were masters of their craft and where so far ahead of the time. Their styles were very different but both shared almost an insanity for their passion. In my eyes they were to of the most amazing story tellers in their own way. Ansel Adams was inspiring because of his tireless dedication to his craft. He would spend weeks waiting for just one shot. Stanley Kubrick had an amazing ability to convey the mood and feelings of his subjects allowing you to be transported into their world, he had a very special touch. His images and films weren’t trying to be anything they weren’t.
I have had a camera in my hands since I was 3 years old. Since then you would be pretty hard pressed to find me without one.
