How would you describe your creative aesthetic?
Well, for starters the major creative aspect of my work is that it’s all being done through an iPhone 8+. I shoot with people who never model before or don’t do it much often and like to choose themes and color tones. I never use photoshop or edit people’s faces.
If you could collaborate with any creative in the world for a project, who would it be?
I’ve never collaborated with any creative for a project, especially since I’m still new to the photography game, but I have been the model myself where there were other creatives giving me a sense of direction on how to pose. I’ve realized than, that those kinds of people have an eye for how to make the photos look good. I would definitely would like to work with creatives of all kinds. I’m not very picky.
