Inspired by David Hockney’s photo collages, I wanted to take a similar approach and apply it to my world, food photography. This series was quite fun to shoot, and a bit of a challenge to pull together in the end, but I’m pleased with the results. I’ve always been attracted to photographing the most simple food. It’s just more relatable, more honest, more real. So this breakfast series is the simplest of the simple breakfasts: egg, toast, and grapefruit.
I love road trips. I especially love solo road trips. Just me and the open road. Audiobooks, real books, music and wandering. Quite simply, there is nothing i’d rather do.
Road trips give me time to reflect, to roam and play. Over the years, the adventures I've enjoyed most are the ones i’ve planned the least. I’ve learned that it’s so important to give yourself room to listen to your intuition and change course or stay put whenever the moment strikes.
One of the reasons I’ve always loved road trips is that it gives me the opportunity to step out of my daily life. This gives me the much needed clarity that gets lost when I’m knee deep-deep in the thick of it at the studio. Doing this gives me the opportunity to assess how things are going in life and if I have the right priorities, values, goals, etc..
So with that being said, here's a little tribute to the open road!
It’s always an honour to have your work featured amongst your peers in one of the photography annuals.
