Creative portrait work is what I feel really launched my business forward after deciding to take a step back from music, following the release of my photo book VITALS. My portrait work has undeniably been influenced by my experience shooting live music, and still is today.
Starting portraits was a huge challenge for me as an artist, but what ultimately helped me shed any last worries about the way people might perceive the work I was choosing to create. As long as my clients and I were happy with what we were accomplishing, I felt happy and fulfilled. So, thanks to the struggle of getting into portrait work in the wake of a global pandemic, my work and I grew stronger. By choosing to be in the direct line of fire to what was uncomfortable for me, I became a stronger artist, individual, and business.
