The Finish Line

After 38 meetings in 7 days, I have completed my trip to NYC.

It was a very good trip. I am tremendously grateful for all the doors the PDN award kicked open.

And as scary as things may seem right now, it seems like the changing economics will be a good thing in the end.

Everyone I met with wants to save money obviously, but people are also looking for new directions to move in, those of more intimate images, more approachable branding, which might mean unconventional styles of shooting. I have never been a fan of post-heavy photos, so this possibility of work that feels real, genuine and new (not saccharin or forced) would be exciting to watch unfold.

I also got to catch up with Alison Brady, a great NYC photographer.
