Carley makes me remember and discover what I love about creating all at the same time. She's a film maker, doing her graduate study in Iowa. Her work is amazing, but just as fascinating is hearing her talk about it. She's an artistic mind. A scholar. She makes my brain work harder, and I'm the better for it. And when we're together, we make things happen without really discussing it. There's just a mutual understanding there.
So here is some new work that feels like a breath of fresh air for me. It's all frizzy hair and rain speckled glasses. Shot in high ISO and no tripod and shaking from the cold. Just a moment of chasing light and shooting pictures of what feels inspiring. That's something I can build an empire around.
I've been thinking more about where I am heading with my business, and I hope to make 2015 the year of chasing dream projects and collaborations. Can I just insert one gushy note about Columbus? Being here makes me entirely sure that this is possible. This city is thriving. I would have never expected to love a city so close to home, but Columbus pride is contagious. There is a strong entrepreneurial community here too, and it's filled with people who are very focused on community.
And as always, I'm always looking for opportunities to collaborate. If you think the crumbs and dirty plates at the end of the meal are more satisfying than a pretty picture before, we should talk (here).
