Every time I look at a project, I ask myself, “What’s the story?” In commercial photography, a team of creatives conceives stories around a concept to sell a product. My job is to convey the experience my clients essentially want people to get out of what’s being photographed. The subject is the story, and I collaborate with a writer, photo editor (and anyone else in the know) to tell the story.
Then there are personal projects, where I have the opportunity to mix those worlds together. Whether my job is to adapt a story into an image for a client, magazine or myself, or to simply photograph what or who is there, my process involves an interplay of three equally weighted components that make an image work: light, subject and context. Oh, and being a great listener is where it of course all begins!
