"Taking a picture captures a tiny glimpse into time, frozen, there for everyone to see."
Model Citizen App is the platform where we recognise fashion models, photographers, designers, makeup artists, hair stylists, creative directors, bloggers, stylists, and labels around the world. Every day, we feature an individual on Model Citizen Interviews. People get to know each of them - their hopes, challenges, aspirations and inspirations in life.
Tell us about yourself, why you are passionate about what you do, and your journey so far. I love capturing people and strange things that catch my eye. I love taking the road less traveled to see what I can see. Taking a picture captures a tiny glimpse into time, frozen, there for everyone to see. What are your goals and how do you see yourself progressing in the field? My goals are to be doing the photography I love anywhere in the world it takes me. How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements? I work with everyday people and some experienced models. You need to be patient and friendly or you will never go anywhere in the field. I adapt to take pictures even in the worst of weather and light. If you had to do it over again, what would you change? Move to a larger arena. That is, closer to a sizable city, not in it. Who is your hero, and how have they helped you get to where you are? Don't have heroes, I do look up to photographers like Jason Lanier. Ones who keep it straight without all the fluff. How important are creative education courses? Have you taken any, and did you find them useful? I spend hours every week watching people on youtube. Some are very useful others you adapt to fit your style. Do you have any tips for someone who is just starting out in the industry? Start by watching Jason Lanier's free videos then decide the route you want to go. Don't limit your artistic eye to what others say, be who you are and always keep learning.
