As an artist, I think it is SO important to create for yourself every once in a while. Of course, there is a part of you expressed through all of the work you create for others, but you need to get out and express yourself through work you are creating for you and you alone. I take trips out of my hometown to create and collaborate with other people in different communities around where I live. I drove up to Michigan recently to photograph a model I've been wanting to shoot in a place I've been meaning to visit for quite some time. All of these images were taken at Silver Lake State Park at sunrise. I am so happy with how these turned out. Here are just a few from my dreamy, moody, midwest shoot with Ellery. I can't wait to share more in the future.
