What does creativity mean to you?
Creativity is a most powerful tool of inner expression. Creativity makes every artist, every photographer keep looking, observing and evolving!
How do you continue to push yourself to grow & evolve as an artist?
I try to never stop observing, trying to find new subjects, new interpretations, or new approaches to my usual subjects.
How did you discover Lensbaby?
I knew about Lensbaby since you launched your first products. But it was only a couple of months ago I considered Lensbaby as a tool that would take my creativity to the next level. That happened when I discovered the works of some great Lensbaby photographers, and tried to imagine the impact of Lensbaby effects on my own portraiture or street photographs.
Why do you enjoy shooting with Lensbaby lenses?
I enjoy being able to have the wonderful Lensbaby effects at the moment of shooting the photo. They are compatible with my artistic vision, they really help me obtain the results I'm looking for.
How is the experience of shooting with a Lensbaby lens different than other lenses?
The experience is hard to be described in words. No other lens has helped me to develop my creativity like Lensbaby!
