"LEARN THE RULES LIKE A PRO SO YOU CAN BREAK THEM LIKE AN ARTIST."
- PABLO PICASSO
I love when someone tells me they are interested in learning photography. When I decided to get into photography not every seasoned photographer was welcoming of new people. I was NOT okay with this. As soon as I learn something I want to share it with other photographers. I continue to live by these practices and this is how “THE LAB” was created. I want to teach people who are interested in learning photography and give them a strong foundation. Google and youtube has sooo much information to offer but what is hard to find is a place to learn the basics and the next steps to take to excel in your craft!
"DOUBT IS PART OF THE CREATIVE PROCESS"
- DANIELLE LAPORTE
Are you telling yourself “I want to do this but I’m not good enough…” or “The market is so saturated I’ll never be able to be as good as the other photographers..” STOP those negative thoughts right now! I’m here to help you become that photographer you want to be. Whether it’s taking pictures for fun or becoming a professional photographer remember everyone started out somewhere. Practice and passion will get you where you want to go! Just remember not every image is not going to be perfect. You are going to get frustrated and want to give up (See my face below) But even the greatest artists still struggle. You got this!
"CREATIVITY IS NOT A COMPETITION"
- AUTUMN SKY HALL
Stop looking at all the photographers on facebook and instagram. Let’s focus on you! Use other photographers images as inspiration versus comparison.
"CREATIVE MINDS ARE RARELY TIDY" - UNKNOWN
Write down all your ideas! No idea is a dumb idea. Try to create each of your ideas even if you may fail at the end. This will help your growth as an artist. Would you have guessed this image was taken on the side of a busy road trash all around? I saw this log and had a vision using Riley and her dance outfit. One of my favorite images to date!
LET THE ADVENTURE BEGIN....
Are you ready to start your photography journey with me? I’m ready to help get all those ideas you have written down into a photograph. Let me help build the foundation of your future.
