Annie Motel - Esac Eht Saw Redrum

You can probably see from my photos that I'm not big in to studios.  One thing I tell my models is that I get bored of locations really quickly.  The reality is that its not completely boredom but really its about energy.  Locations have a certain energy to them thats cultivated both by the energy we put in and the energy we take out.  When creatives enter those spaces we have the ability to affect that energy in different ways.  A street artist for example can take their creative energy and breathe new life into a space by binding their work to it.  A photographer on the other hand farms the space of its energy for images to take away.  There's nothing wrong with taking energy away from a space like a farmer taking away crops, however image makers must be careful not to take too much energy from the space or their images can be weak and forced.  I apply this philosophy to my image making.  Studio spaces are like grow houses where image makers create artificial energy spaces, so I'm always hesitant about spending too much time in one.

Fortunately my good friend and model Annie Motel set up a cute studio in her living room and being the powerful creative force that that she is, never really runs out of creative energy.  She invited me over one evening where she had already been shooting some photos on her own and I just sort of jumped in.  Then we had tea.  In short, Annie Motel continues to be rad (and in this case red).  Enjoy!
