Fall Leaves, Almond Butter & Art: What Inspires You?

Fall Leaves Photo

I was recently contacted by a student who was doing a school project on dance photography.  She asked some expected questions and others not so much.  I was surprised at my reaction to one question; she asked “what’s your inspiration?” which took me a little bit to think how to answer.

Of course there are the usual suspects like other photographers I have admired for a long time: Howard Schatz, Lois Greenfield, Avedon, David LaChapelle, and my current favorites RJ Muna and Gregory Crewdson.  Then there’s artists that inspire (a new project on the horizon and in the beginning planning stages inspired by the line drawing artist Escher), conversations with other artists, movies (all time fav movie The Matrix, something that inspired my assistant Sasha and I to do this video for Janusphere, have a peak here: )

I’ve been lately inspired much by my toddler daughter Oriane, the way she oohs or coos at the newest thing to come her way (this morning for example it was mom showing her how to get the lid off the almond butter container).  What would our world be like if we all stopped to wonder at the marvels around us, both simple and complex, everyday?

What inspires you??

  1. Calories contribute to energy but excessive amount of calories arises
    into fats. These Do Not Deliver Permanent Results – If at all some pill works to
    suit your needs, the sad area of the story is
    going to be that its impact won’t go very far for you to savor it.
    At the end of the day (week, month, year, or decade), one’s body doesn’t care about your insufficient planning.
