For most of my life and all of my career, I've written, produced, and performed music. I love it and I know how to do it pretty well. With my creative compatriot Matt Naylor, I've helped build Flow Nonfiction into a really cool little company that produces work we’re all proud of. I’ve always been a little creatively restless, though, and when my son suggested we buy a decent camera to document a road trip a few years back, I agreed. My only condition was that we take an online course on the fundamentals so he wasn’t just flailing around.
It wasn't long before we were fighting over the 70D, and soon I had watched (and re-watched) about a hundred hours of Creative Live courses. More importantly, I started taking a lot of pictures.
With music, you can be alone in a studio and make cool things happen just playing with your instruments. It’s not until you get with other musicians or perform for an audience that you start to connect with something outside yourself. I think that’s why I like taking pictures of people - the challenge of quickly grabbing a shot that feels natural. Hopefully that’s what comes across in these pictures.
It’s been exciting to wrap photography into the mix at Flow. If you like what you see and have a project in mind, get in touch. Thanks for stopping by. email@example.com
