How did you start doing what you’re doing?
I have enjoyed capturing moments, so photography came naturally to me, that passion grew into visual art, creative directing, videography, and recently fashion. Now there is nothing I enjoy more than creating moments behind or in front of a [pair] of lens.
Name one or two struggles of doing the craft you do. How did you overcome them?
Biggest struggle for me is staying fresh and unique. I overcame that, but constantly learning new ideas, edits, styles, and most importantly working with different people.
How do you deal with creative block? What would you advise others?
Best way to deal with a creative blocks is working with other creative people, their ideas could spark up an idea for you. Both [sides] can come up with something brilliant. [Sometimes] you might not even have a block, but simply having someone [to] listen to your crazy ideas, can give you the confidence you need to create.
Do you feel like you have support for your craft, and how important is that support to you?
I do have support and support is very important because sometimes you may not see the beauty in your work, [while] someone else might. You may think you are on the right track, [but could be] way off. Having people support you means they are watching what you do, and that [is] very important.
What’s one thing you would’ve done differently back then, since you know more now?
Nothing, every mistake I have made has led me here.
Do you think social media plays a big part in your success? Why?
Yes because social media is the new portfolio. The world is basically watching and if you are good at what you do and catch the right eye, you can get [the] opportunities that take you to that next level.
How do you plan on expanding? Where do you see yourself with business?
I’m at a crucial point, where I need to decide [on] what I really want to do. I’m still working on it but very soon I’ll proceed.
