WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO PICK UP A CAMERA?
I grew up in an artistic based family that consisted of musicians, artists, and photographers so I was always looking at things from other perspectives. I mainly started picking up a camera when I was traveling as a kid to all the states and snapping pictures of land scape and abstract objects with a 35mm film camera. I did this all up till the age of 17 when I switched over to digital photography. After switching to digital it was all up hill from there. I started working with models more so then shooting land scape and this pretty much forced me to learn more about lighting and so on. As I grew older and my knowledge in digital photography expanded I started to get heavily involved into alt and glam photography thus putting me right where I am now.
WHAT PARTICULAR CHALLENGES DO YOU FACE WITH EROTIC PHOTOGRAPHY AS OPPOSED TO OTHER GENRES?
I wouldn't necessarily say challenges but more so factors that play in Glam/Erotic photography over other, such as land scape for example. With land space your pretty much scoping out a prime location that catches the eye and capturing this location at the right time of day. I know I have been known to sit around for hours waiting for the sun to be in the right spot. As for Glam/Erotic photography the main factor(s) to me is setting, styling, wardrobes, etc. So with that I feel there is more involved and some times it can be a little over whelming for some, as well as spending countless hours on one job just to get that one final shot.
