well, kids, here it is: my wadidoLA interview. i’m pretty pleased with the photos they selected to feature, however almost the entire thing is a misquote. for example, I never said ‘I’m not ready to make photography a full-time job yet.” - i believe my exact words were “bitches need to be paying me for this shit ASAP.” when asked ‘Where do you plan to take your photography in the future?’ i responded with ‘all the way to the motherfucking top.” … the fact that they deleted every single instance of me being incredibly hilarious, charming and self deprecating is frustrating, but hey, free publicity, right? :)

WLA: When and why did you first get into photography? BS:  Photography was a happy accident. I never really considered it because I  didn’t (and still don’t) own anything more advanced than a point and  shoot camera. I felt like there were all of these prerequisites to  ‘being’ a photographer - fancy gear being highest on the list. It took  me a long time to realize that it’s not what you use, it’s what you  shoot.
WLA: Do you have a day job? BS: I  do - I work as an editor for a marketing agency. It’s really fun,  challenging work that inspires me everyday. At this point, I can’t  imagine not having a ‘left brain’ type of job to counterbalance the  primarily ‘right brain’ work involved in photography. When photography  has been more of a business for me in the past, I always felt bogged  down by the business side of things - which is sad, because I love  business models and marketing stratagems and being entrepreneurial. I’ve  just learned that those aspects have their time and place and I’m not  ready to make photography a full-time job yet. I want to be able to  enjoy it as a hobby for now. I’m early in my career and I don’t want to  feel rushed into selling something that I’m still getting to know.
WLA: How would you describe your photographic style? BS: I  would describe it as minimalistic. I am drawn to clean lines and a lot  of negative space, especially with portraiture. I feel like a lack of an  integral component often times makes the piece stronger than it would  be were that component included. I feel like it tells a different story;  what’s missing in a person rather than what they have or how they are  whole. Everybody’s missing something.
WLA: Where do you most like to shoot?BS: I  like shooting candid portraiture of people in their natural environment  - wherever that may be. I’m not much of a landscape photographer,  though when I am, I like to portray a sense of isolation and loneliness.
WLA: Can you name a favorite shoot, or a subject you really enjoyed shooting? 
BS: My  favorite, most exciting subject is my 6 year old niece. She always has  been. There’s a funny thing about kids - they don’t mask their emotions.  They just exist. And oftentimes, their feelings are so much sharper and  more detailed than ours because they’ve not learned to cope or  rationalize them, they just go minute by minute through their lives.  It’s fantastic to be able to photograph that.  

WLA: Are you working on any current projects? BS: I  am working on a curatorial project called The Public School which will  combine music, design, photography, art, and inspiration in general.  Often times I feel limited by photography, which is why I’m so insulated  in my current column [soundscape] at Knoxroad.com - it combines music,  photography and prose. I feel like one artistic vehicle isn’t enough to  get me where I want to go emotionally.
WLA: Where do you plan to take your photography in the future?
BS: I’m  currently obsessed with the idea of producing films. Wherever my  photography ends up, I want it to move a person. Change the way they  felt from before they experienced it.

  23. talewaggercreations said: You are an encouragement. I use a Canon Powershot point and shoot and enjoy the camera very much. Thought about getting an SLR, but too expensive. Your work is beautiful and has inspired me to keep on with my faithful camera. Thanks. KH
