One thing I love about large cities is how easily you can look down and see the culmination of countless life’s works. Each of these buildings were likely a proud, if not crowning achievement, in someone’s life. Each architect spent countless months drafting plans and overseeing development to create these buildings.
It’s pretty amazing that, with a single shutter snap, you can capture all of that.
I’ve been trying to step away from realism for a bit. I’ve been feeling a bit constrained in Lightroom, always trying to recreate exactly what I saw when photographing. Creatively, I needed to step away from that and just try to do something that looked cool. This was the result of some happy little accidents.
Lemme know what you think!
Kelsey Haley is a textile and fashion designer in Portland, Maine. I met her through friends a few months back, but didn’t find out what she did until more recently. I found myself immediately drawn to the tactile, physical nature of her work, which is so far removed from the work I do.
I had to learn more!
I sat down with Kelsey for a few hours to talk about her work and to explore her studio. Again, the contrast was striking. Her space is a bright, loud, vivacious studio. It covered with great, beautiful things: patterns, fabrics, paints, examples. It stands in stark contrast to the dark quiet of the editing bay.
It’s always a blast to explore another’s art: take a peek and find out more!
I worked with WEX’s health and wellness team to put together this short piece around a large donation they made to the global charity UNICEF. They needed a quick turnaround on this piece, so we kept it simple: one naturally lit interview with a key expert, and an hour of b-roll filming off-site.
