Cinematography vs. Photography
Being both photographer and cinematographer he gets to exercise different approaches to creating imagery. He finds that both approaches are important to his creative growth and he his thankful that he’s able to practice both.
When shooting a movie or commercial he uses his skills to help tell someone else’s story that requires a lot of discipline and good team-working skills. “I may have some say in the creative direction of the project but it’s ultimately up to the director.”
When making a photo book, he can create something that comes completely from within himself. There are no clients, deadlines or team members to seek approval from. “I get to create something organically with my own hands from start to finish.”
