Image is POWERFUL

This is an amazing and short TEDtalks video about how powerful image is and also how superficial it can be. Cameron Russell, a famous model breaks down what its REALLY like being a model… and goes into whats really important.

I attached the video… but if you don’t have time to watch it… at least check out these images from her talk. They really had an impact on me. On the left are her modelling photos and beside them are real photos of her in her life taken around the same time.

As a photographer and retoucher… I am constantly in battle with the world of making everyone look perfect and the world of realness. All I know is if I have a daughter… I hope she can grow up in a world where images and ideals are real, and promote healthy self image, not a distorted definition of “perfection”.

Mastin Kipp and The Daily Love

Watch this inspirational interview with the creator of The Daily Love. This guy is young, laid back and relatable. There are at least 20 genius quotes in this interview alone. If you are a starving artist, or just struggling to get where you want to be, I know this will fuel you with some faith and inspiration.
WATCH and FEEL THE LOVE!

Bookshop Sessions.

Mumford and Sons is one of my favorite bands.
I have some beautiful memories and thoughts attached to their songs, some having nothing to do with the actual songs themselves but they re-spark the feelings I once had.
One of my most peaceful moments to date, was walking along the Ocean in Florida, beach empty, Mumford and Sons on my ipod, low volume so I could still hear the waves and feel the sand between my toes and the ocean rolling at my feet. mmmm.
I love these versions of the songs, Bookshop Sessions.
