My friends have become a perpetual theme within my photography. The photo shoots I do now don’t hold the sterile feeling that they have done in the past. From my progression as a photographer I can truthfully say that my photos have less meaning within them than behind them. The process of capturing a photo is less about the intention but more about the interaction that occurs between the “model” and I. After spending countless hours one on one with another person you begin to sympathies for each other. It almost becomes a surreal feeling. You lose track of time with your friends around. I don’t look at them as models but as a second self. I try to pose my friends in a way that I would like to be posed.
