pleasure of assisting the lovely Mr. Justin Hackworth with a photo shoot}


I'm convinced that nobody could be more critical of themselves in pictures than me. I mean, really?? It's a disorder or something in my case. It's no surprise then that I'm behind the camera as much as humanly possible. With that said, I still see tremendous value in forcing yourself to step in front of the lens every so often. It gives you fresh perspective on being the subject -a greater sense of empathy, if you will- which, in turn, improves your ability to connect with and capture your own subjects.  This reward alone makes it worth it and, besides, it feels really good to tell your
raging inner critic to stuff it every once in awhile.
