I WISH that I did! I just went through a crazy situation myself and felt totally lost. Best advice I could give would be to find something that will occupy your brain other than what he/she did to you and try to make something productive come from it. Use the breakup as fuel to better yourself; pick up a hobby, make a new friend, go on a solo vacation to clear your head.
I wish I could help more, but just know you’ve got at least me rooting for you to get better!
A few months ago, I was asked to shoot the Womenswear spread of Swatch Magazine. Swatch is a Florida State University based fashion magazine run entirely by the students and published twice a year.
I was excited for the shoot from the get go, but after getting to the shoot and meeting the models I was even more excited. Both of them needed very little direction and we super fun to work with, so it made for an awesome shoot. The only downside of the shoot was that my portable power unit died during it, so we were scrambling to find outlets and extension cords, but we got it all handled rather nicely.
Anywho, during the shoot, I was told that I would also be shooting the cover for the issue which was really awesome since I have never had a cover before.
Take a look at this link http://content.yudu.com/Library/A2ksyr/SwatchMagazineFall20/resources/index.htm to go check out the full issue.I also modeled in it, so keep an eye out for me on the other side of the camera as well.
Huge thanks to everyone at Swatch and everyone that was involved in this issue. I can’t wait to shoot another spread and hopefully cover next semester!
As usual, I say something in an interview and of course fans have a problem with it. I don’t know why i continuously feel like I should have to defend myself, but because no one is able read between the lines to understand why I said what i said.. I can’t help but want to try and encourage people…
I’ve never really been too big a fan of this bands music, but everything this dude wrote is so on point it is unbelievable. This type of stuff used to drive me batshit crazy as well on a much, much smaller scale. I’m glad someone finally had the balls to come out and say all this.
It’s mid-spring, 1961. In the kitchen of a safe house in Montgomery, Ala., Martin Luther King Jr. is tense. In the house with the 32-year-old civil rights leader are 17 students — fresh-faced college kids who, moved by King’s message of racial equality, are literally putting their lives at risk. These are the groundbreaking practitioners of nonviolent civil disobedience known as the Freedom Riders, and over the past two harrowing weeks, as they’ve traveled across the state on integrated buses, their numbers have diminished at every stop in the face of arrests, mob beatings — even fire-bombings.
Right there along with the riders, capturing the mood of the movement as it swung between exhilarated and exhausted, thrilled and terrified, was 26-year-old LIFE photographer Paul Schutzer, who covered the landmark Prayer Pilgrimage for Freedom march and rally in Washington, D.C., four years earlier and witnessed firsthand the courage and determination Dr. King inspired in his followers. (Filed along with Schutzer’s Pilgrimage photos in LIFE’s archives are notes from the magazine’s Washington bureau chief, Henry Suydam Jr., citing the energy and excitement swirling around King even then: “At the end of the ceremonies, a couple of hundred people pressed feverishly on Reverend King — seeking pictures, autographs, handshakes, or just a close look. The jam got so heavy that he had to be escorted to safety by police.”)
Here, five decades after the Freedom Riders put their lives on the line for dignity and equal rights, LIFE.com presents photos — most of which never ran in LIFE — made by Schutzer during that heady era in American history. Here are images charting a pivotal moment in the historic journey of Dr. King himself and in the nation-changing movement he led, from the monuments of Washington to the highways, rural roads, churches and bus depots of the Deep South.
powerful stuff here
The lady and I had a room at Hotel Duval here in Tallahassee last night and it was incredible. We decided a few weeks ago that since we would have a nice room and an entire day to just spend together that we would do a boudoir shoot. I’ve never shot anythiiiiing like this before ever and I’ve only peeked through a few friends boudoir stuff before, but I think we managed to walk away with some really incredible stuff.
I was a big fan of playing with focus and perspective. I had a ton of fun looking at this babe all day, as well, so that was cool.
Anywho, that’s the story behind these 2 photos and I am real excited to keep working on them!
tl;dr - took photos of my girlfriend half naked in a really nice hotel. It was cool.
If this ever gets 50K notes I will do a print giveaway
Only a little more that 7k needed! Get on it, tumblr!
Fame is a funny thing.
It somehow makes it ‘ok’ to look passed the fact that someone is a heroin addicted junkie, while at the same time allowing for millions of people to cheer for/give a standing ovation to a teenager that is accused of a violent sexual crime.
Could you imagine if I went out, with the whole community knowing/thinking I was either a drug addict or a rapist and tried to get jobs working for these businesses? They would never give me the time of day/would probably have me removed from their property. However, since someone is on TV 1 night a week, we somehow find it ok to look past the facts of the situation.
Man, we really need to take an outside look at our society and realize that who we put on pedestals is completely wrong. Actors/Musicians/Artists/Football players/Politicians/Religious figures/etc should not be excused from the law because they have a big fanbase.
This type of constant behavior disgusts me. That is all.
THIS JUST BLEW ME AWAY
In fairness, I tell my daughter she can be whatever the hell she wants when she grows up because it’s a fact. Not because she’s a child, not because she is a little girl that will one day grow up to be a woman. I tell her this because if she puts her heart into anything, she will conquer it; and that’s just a fact.
Since I am closing down my studio, I am selling most of my music photos that I have framed since I will no longer have any room for them.
