<< A huge reason behind my metamorphosis or change I think would be when I stepped out of LA and into New York and the European market. It really changed my whole perspective of modeling. LA is very commercial and nowadays is driven heavily by social media. It seemed that pretty much anyone can be a model if you have a lot of followers and I also find that there are quite a few fakers in LA. >>

<< I don’t feel like there’s such a big difference.These days people are able to get inspired by every culture, art movement or even one single human being. The market here in LA isn’t the same, that’s for sure but because of this globalization I don’t think you can divide photographers from America or Europe in two different categories. They’re all looking through a viewfinder to capture some form of art so in a way they’re all speaking the same language. >>
