There are three things that fuel me – Photography, Writing and Filmmaking.
I am only really happy when I am doing these things.
I can’t choose between them as each of them caters to a core need I have.
I am a ‘feeler’ and everything I do is about capturing or re-creating emotion.
I rotate my projects daily, rather than spending weeks/months doing one at a time. For me this keeps things fresh and prevents things from becoming too routine. Most importantly though, it stops me from becoming bored. It also means I get just enough space from each project to allow ideas to develop some body and can then return to them with renewed enthusiasm, a fresh pair of eyes and a clear head.
Inspiration seems to come to me the most just before I fall asleep. If I don’t write it down, I will forget it by morning.
Some of my best ideas have come from song lyrics. Some of my worst from trying to copy other people.
Be true to yourself and be free.
