Like all artists, I’m always looking for the fresh take. How can I creatively capture a moment in time/a client/an idea? Whether my medium is photography or writing, I want to find what is unique and perhaps yet unseen.
Some artists/writers carefully sculpt their scene in advance. I admire their skill, but that method rarely works for me. Instead, I depend heavily upon serendipity, stumbling upon those quirky moments that spark creativity.
