Why I’m a Photographer and trying to make it as a Professional

Why photography?

This is a question I am asked a lot by people who aren’t artists nor are in the art world.

I especially got this question when I was first coming here to SF to start my degree.

Why art? You know you can’t make that much money with a art degree right?

I really hated these questions and I hated answering them ( I don’t like repeating myself its annoying).

Well why photography? I Continue reading “Why I’m a Photographer and trying to make it as a Professional”

The Media

This was an assignment from my Contemporary Fine Art Practices class a few semesters ago were we had to create a small body of work that’s theme was, as my title says, the media.

I think it might have been a week or two assignment and while creating the work our teacher was prepping us by showing us different videos on either artists that explored the celebrity and voyeurism. But one thing kept popping up Continue reading “The Media”

Motivation Proclamation

A bit of a little update I guess haha.

Well I’ve been pretty busy (working part time and going to school full time always sucks), and I just haven’t been motivated to either work on blogs for this site/ work on personal projects.

But I am trying to change all that and get back into doing this blog. I’ve tried to be consistent and upload posts on Tuesdays and Thursday( so far that’s happened yay!) and I plan on keeping that as a schedule.

Also finals are coming up so I’ll try not to neglect this blog haha.

That one time I made a chair….

That one time I made a chair….

What was probably the beginning of my miniature obsession(well at least the need to build my own miniatures haha) was the when I made a chair for one of my past (again with the past) assignments.

This time the subject matter was chair and shoes and so I wanted to do something that wasn’t cliche or anything and really different since what else could you really do with a chair (I mean there’s probably tons but I just couldn’t think of anything at that time to do aside from trying to my hands on a really old style chair and lighting it in a moody way.) So I decided to create my own chair instead which was pretty fun to do.

Now you might not believe me when I say this but that chair is maybe 4 inches tall max haha since I remember when I brought in this picture people thought I had taken a picture of some kind of reclining chair but were pretty shocked when I told them that I not only built it but it wasn’t even that big.

Eyes and Trees

Eyes and Trees

I guess I’ll call that the working title for this series haha. As this is not on my website all of the images can be viewed here on my blog post.

So again like my silhouette series Guess Who? this is something I did for an assignment that was an personal exploration of an idea that had thought up during the time I was on break from school.

On one of those nights were I couldn’t go to sleep because my thoughts were keeping me and as I stared at the ceiling closing each eye Continue reading “Eyes and Trees”
