So as you may have noticed, i've been MIA for quite a while now. I was seduced by the glamour of a 9-5 and steady paycheck and found myself in a few miserable situations that looking back now I regret getting myself into. Because of the comfort of steady pay, I slowly found myself transitioning to retouching more and more. I'd estimate that 75% of my work is now retouching, and while I love it, I still ache to take photos every once in a while.
Recently I was introduced to Grant Yoshino through my friend Juliet Vo. Grant is a pretty badass photographer and he enlisted my help on a few editorials that i'm pretty stoked for. I'll be posting the images as soon as their up. For now, here are some of his photos of James Franco that I got to retouch. Look forward to more frequent updates starting now!
PS i'm also doing project365, a photo a day for a year, to try and bring back that original passion I had for photography. Most creatives can tell you, ruts are hard, but once that spark hits again we get that intensity back. Hopefully project365 will give me that spark back!
