Inspiration in this career is everything. It is worthless to argue that all creative is found within the self when even the most obscure campaign finds its life built of particles of life, art and the world around all assembled subconsciously to create our art.
Some time ago, I wrote a blog eulogizing a friend that passed away suddenly, a friend that I had fallen out of touch with for many years and was never afforded a good bye. I wanted to know my friend more, but that fate was gone, instead I could only know him now by those his life impacted.
If it wasn’t apparent in the recent article I wrote on the television show “The Newsroom,” let’s just say that I have a strong fear that we are letting technological advancements hurt our true quest for knowledge.
Many years ago I was visiting with Bill Stockland, an artist rep and friend of mine. We had toured his office and then found ourselves in the portfolio room where I looked over the work of Walter Iooss.
With the Olympics upon us, I wanted to take a moment and talk about one of the most unique athletes I have ever photographed, the American Bladerunner, Blake Leeper. He will be competing in Rio for Team USA and is an inspiring young man.
Firstly, hello World. It has been quite some time since I have had a chance to sit down and write a bit, but in a way, that is a good thing as I have a lot of new images to talk about in the near future. Today’s photoshoot is one that supersedes them all, as it is one that near and dear to my heart.
