The ideological visual source.

The main source of creative inspiration for me is the power of colour, the beauty of natural settings and simple visuals vs busy and cluttered. This image was taken in October in the Lynn Valley Canyon in BC, it was very cold and very beautiful at the same time.

My feet, wearing no footwear for the shoot, were freezing and pretty much so was the rest of me. It was a starting point of understanding that physical comfort has nothing to do with making a good or striking image. Quite often the most beautiful images ever created were taken by accident or through difficult/extreme conditions. Bottom line is being comfortable with your photographer and safe in the environment you are working in, whether its with the crew or the setup. Everything comes together to help create art, its not a single person running game.
