I was recently contacted by Matthew Rakola of American Photographic Artists of Washington DC (APA DC), as he wanted to do a feature on me for an upcoming profile. I was surprised and quite flattered! The shoot for the article was scheduled on quite a busy day, so I had to shoehorn them in, but it was definitely worth it.
Matthew Rakola from APA DC showed up with his gear, and we photographed at my studio. I can’t remember the last time I’ve had an actual shoot done of myself, and it was a great experience being in front of the camera. I definitely need to do it more often, if for no other reason than to be more sympathetic to the people I photograph. We had a lot of fun, and I tried out some props on the shoot. Apparently, you can put me in a box! And on a rolling chair, and in front of an enormous background. It was a great time and I really appreciate APA DC selecting me as a featured artist, and Matthew Rakola for photographing me. I had never been interviewed before in this way, and it was very interesting to go through that as well. It gave me a good insight into how interviewing works, so I hope I will have the opportunity to be able to put that to good use in the future.
