I was asked to create a bio video several weeks back, and I immediately knew I didn’t want to do another interview-type video. Don’t get me wrong, interviews are great and have their place, but this felt like a great opportunity to do something creative and show people a side of me often only expressed through my images of other people. I think this short film is a good glimpse into my personality and how I think about life and work. Sometimes words just aren’t enough, at least for us visual types. So think of this as a creative bio/promo, rather than a literal account of my work and life. I hope you enjoy it.
I posted several of production stills if you want a behind the scenes look at this video also.
