Who or what has had the greatest influence on your work?
So many different interests: I grew up playing basketball, everyday when I was a kid we would play from sun up to sun down. It was my first obsession, so that’s kind of driven my love for sport and wanting to represent that heavily in my work. Then, I’ve always loved fashion and dressing up so thats another thing I love photographing just because it’s fun being around clothes and figuring out how to make them look as cool as possible. Music is another huge influence for me, and was actually how I got into photography in the first place.
How do you bring together the worlds of art and sport in your photography?
This might be the hardest question to answer just because it’s not something I consciously think about: I just try to stay true to my vision and how I see things. I guess it’s getting out of my own way, and not overthinking things. Just allowing my feelings about how I see things to not be affected too much by outside influences like other photographers, trends, etc.
