Expression Collector - Communicator - Photographer
What do people say about working with me?
If you think this is about photography… you’ve missed the point.
This is about Meaningful, Powerful Communication
Why do I communicate?
First of all, we have no choice in the matter. There is a never ending stream of vocalised, physicalised, imagined, and experienced communication going on both externally and internally… transmitting and receiving… all the time… However big or small; grand or mundane (changing society or changing ourselves).
What we communicate into the world is tangible.
There is a projection of energy, intention, and effect from our communication that has a net result on our ecology - the set of relationships between any complex system and its environment. Therefore, because of my own fundamental belief that our thoughts, words, and actions profoundly dictate our experience of reality (and what we are able to create in the world), I believe I should be crystal clear about what affect I choose to have on the world around me.
This little equation fuels my creativity, informs my work, and determines my path.
Self expression + Self reflection = Transformation
Self Expression is one side of life’s coin. It’s one of the most joyful, playful, meaningful parts of our experience as a human being. It’s a moment by moment opportunity to define - and refine - who we are and what we stand for.
Self Reflection is the other side of that coin. The chance to pause, in a moment of quiet attention, and reflect on what affect our self expression has on ourselves and the people we hope to influence… It’s pure magic. We get to consider if our intentions are right… and if we are articulating those intentions properly. We receive feedback from the world. We get to feel the reaction. We get to live the message we are transmitting.
And then we get to choose again! The whole beautiful process starts over… “In this moment, what is the most effective/ creative/ powerful/ meaningful/ intentional/ playful/ valuable way to express my self?”
It’s in this ‘flipping of the coin’ - Self Expression / Self Reflection - that we can make real Transformation in the world (and in ourselves). I get to see it more clearly and then I get to retransmit all that back to society. At the end of the day, if society deems my creations to be valuable then I guess I’m winning.
So that's why I have engineered my portrait sessions the same way. Every single session is about helping you transform the way you communicate with yourself as well as the world around you. I help you portray yourself (Self Expression)… We pause and consider, examine and critique (Self Reflection)… And that changes what we do next (Transformation)… Which leads immediately to the next round of Self Expression and the cycle continues.
