“The most important thing about art is to work. Nothing else matters except sitting down every day and trying.” – Steven Pressfield (The War of Art)
A big part of my move to LA was an opportunity to grow. Not just growth as a photographer but to expand my skill set as a producer and art director as well. I think it’s important to understand all the roles in this business because ultimately that’s who you’ll be working with as you book bigger and bigger jobs. So my idea was to approach this shoot like I was booked for a Coca-Cola campaign (just in case you didn’t notice the subtleties). It was a little ambitious, given the fact I’ve never shot 5 models before, but what I lacked in experience I made up for in preparation. With a great team, cool props and little bit of luck on our side I think we pulled off one of my funnest tests to date. Let’s just hope Coke takes notice.

After all the hard work what else is there to do but jump? (*This was the day before my birthday too)
