I’m not shooting enough photographs. We have all heard the film argument about how it slows you down and you take fewer photos. I get that, but there is a difference between shooting less and shooting a lot and shooting a lot of the same exact scene. Instead of machinegun photographing a subject, take a photograph and recompose to tell a story. What I’m getting at is I’m not taking enough photographs, I’m not producing enough content.
Without a doubt, Eric Kim is a photographer that pushes people’s buttons. Some people find inspiration from him, others find a reason to roll their eyes. But one thing that is interesting is he came from nothing, and now he is living his dream, a dream to teach others about photography.
David Paul Larson is a man who knows what he wants and dosesn’t wait around for it to happen, rather he’s the kinda man who goes out and gets it. Talking to David I learned that no matter your situation if you want something, it’s up to you to make it happen. It takes work, motion, commitment, drive and passion, not just one, but all these qualities to get your desired result.
David spends his time doing what he loves, and that is filmmaking and photography. He turns his lens towards what he loves and interests him, people. Looking at his work, you realise he’s not afraid to get intimate and be in the moment. He has a way of getting a photograph that captures what he’s looking, admiring and appreciating right in front of him that is uniquely his.
