production value

i’ve been really engulfed in my own work recently. what i’ve come to realize is that I need to work on my color portfolio. i started in b/w and it has always been an important facet to my work. but the reality is that most commercial and editorial assignments will be done in color, not to say there isn’t room for b/w. its that i need to be more dimensional and push my work.

i’ve also become more aware that my book needs to have more work that demonstrates production value. granted i started in the documentary field and my ‘style’ will stay grounded to that, but i need to show that I can command a set with stylists, makeup artists and the likes of a commercial shoot. i need to show that i can CREATE an environment where my style of imagery can be achieved for an editorial or commercial client.

all that being said, it really comes down to me shooting more. i need to just keep shooting and pushing myself to the next level.
