My Need to Create

The past couple weeks have been full. I’ve been working on the sets of TV commercials, shooting business head shots, property listings, corporate events and a golf tournament for USC.¬† None of these shoots resulted in photos that I felt inspired to share. They are the bread and butter that helps pay the rent. Over the past week I’ve felt and realized that I need to shoot for me. For me that typically means working with a model to create something interesting or beautiful. I’m working on lining that up.

In the mean time a family adventure netted some photos I did like. For those of you not in southern California, the blue whales are migrating south to Costa Rica and because of our cold summer they are only a few miles off shore. We booked a boat trip and saw a handful of whales. I spent half the time shooting the coast and water and 40% of the time trying convince myself that I wasn’t sea sick (I lost that battle).
