Sometimes you have to stop asking for permission and just decide it's your time.

Tonight is my fourth shoot in 5 days, and despite the long hours, all the setting up and tearing down, and sweating through all of my clothes (shooting outside in 100 degrees), I've loved every second of it.
See, everyone loves the idea of being a photographer. But when it's not all just "shooting for fun," only the passion for creation makes any of those long hours worth it. I love that photography is accessible to anyone with an iPhone (that's how I got started), but there lies the distinction between a hobby and the craft: the willingness to create at all costs. And speaking of costs, I made zero dollars on these shoots. In fact, I spent my own money on them all. And it was so worth it.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that in a changing industry, for an artist of any kind, only passion and the willingness to constantly improve will supersede a saturated market, a growing base of prosumers, and the "influencer" over "artist" mentality. It costs nothing to change an Instagram bio to read "photographer." But to practice the craft is something else entirely.
So be encouraged, my friends, to do just that. Pursue the craft. Make good art. Encourage others. And if you read this far, comment below and let me know what drives you to create.
Also, super stoked to show you all this new work. This is a preview of a new shoot with @hakeemthedream, in collaboration with my man @taylorthecrafter. Shot on my @sonyalpha A7RII. #alphacollective

The sun sets, but the air stays sullen, a dense mood in the darkness, summer in the city. #photographer #writer

The Light shifted and shattered at the shut of day as you and I lay counting the colors multitudinous on our skin like mirrors. And for just a second I was tricked into thinking the world was perfection, a beautiful reflection, a moment of timeless, weightless, stillness. #captionsbywriters

In honor of the first official day of summer, I've taken over the @CB2 Instagram account with my #captionsbywriters series to document some of my favorite #summerfeels. Hard shadows, vibrant colors, and sentimental memories all give me those #summerfeels, and constantly inspire my writing and photography. Check out more on their feed. #ad

We spend our lives on such small moments - mere trivialities, the mundane to's and fro's - that when we look behind to assess it's passing, it appears as if we dreamt it.
But therein lies the beauty, that life is not expended in grand occurrence, but in sunrises and sunsets and the loveliest seconds of simplicity in between. #captionsbywriters β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” #alphacollective #peoplescreatives #ignant #watchthisinstagood #hypebeast #visualsoflife #streetdreamsmag #artxdesign #thecreatorclass #artofvisuals #designboom #inspiration #poetry #mywriting #wow #beautiful #love #summer

The city beckoned, half height, half darkness, and we disappeared into its atmosphere.

A sign of the times.

Some sacred nights we let the hallowed light diffuse us, and trespass over sallow skin, a rose-scented transfiguration. There but for a moment, we are honest and then gone. #captionsbywriters β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”

Sometimes it's hard to think the world contains such beauty, such reason, such order amidst the chaos.

If there's a future, we want it now, she said as if she'd seen it: crystallized and resplendent, the sounds of jubilation refracted through portals like echoes of light.

We dwelled those days in shadow, burned and branded, but never broken by the sun.
