A mood is incapable of being imitated. It's its own moment in infinite time... Conveying a feeling so familiar it doesn't need words to be understood.

We are torn between nostalgia for the familiar, And an urge for the foreign and undiscovered. As often as not, we are homesick for places we've never been, People we've never met, And feelings we may never know...
The magic of taking the perfect photograph is more than just finding the right angles or having the best equipment, though those things matter, it's so much more than that... It's in the ability to convey a story that touches the soul. It's in the artistry of composition & isolation. It's in the expression of proof that once, even if only for a fleeting moment, everything in that world was pure perfection... Wondrous, inimitable, & irreplaceable.
There's something so beautiful about capturing the calm within the chaos of a storm... Like when we put this shoot together: The goal was to capture the essence of these winter coats in the middle of Miami, sunny and 70 degrees, with only 30 mins before our team had to be at the airport to catch their flights! But you know what? We captured it. Mood 'n all. Sprinkle a little bit of snow in Photoshop... Viola! The energy of a group of inspiring & talented creatives can literally change the world.
"...The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles, exploding like spiders across the stars..." - Jack Kerouac
