The best way out is always through
Currently looking to expand my freelance network, collaborate on passion projects, and further utilize my photography.

I'm still pretty new freelance, and I'd love to establish a small network of people, companies, and agencies with whom I collaborate with on a regular to semi-regular basis. I believe that continuity is an important (although not essential) ingredient to creating the best work. There's a certain level of honesty, trust and fluidity achieved through continuity that serves as a healthy foundation to create the best work upon. This approach also keeps me designing more instead of writing emails, networking, selling myself, not getting paid by random/ unknown clients, etc. etc.

For the foreseeable future, I will be looking for remote opportunities– and I'm open to short and long engagements. While I won't rule out the option of being on-site for any amount of time, the current plan to is to be rather mobile and pick-up remote work along the way.


As I've gone freelance, I'm going to undoubtedly find myself with a lot of free time. While I'll be able to keep myself busy with personal projects, its fun to mix things up with others. In general, the people I hope to work with won't be decided based on budget, exposure, etc– I ultimately want to continue expanding my horizons. I really hope to work with people of different skill-sets to create an output we couldn't have achieved independently. How much of this work I can take on of course is going to be a balance I'll have to sort out, but I hope for this to be a substantial chunk of my time. At the end of the day, I'm ideally looking for projects that are with good people, sounds fun and I have an opportunity to positively influence design of the project.


I'm also actively seeking out a photo agency to help me expand my network, reach, and to facilitate photo-related projects (books, shows, etc). At the moment, the photo world is entirely new to me, so I have few connections and limited understanding of how it all works. That being said, I'm also not looking for representation to get commercial/client type work (unless it fits some rather specific criteria). Photography is it's own independent thing that I want to keep from being compromised by too much exterior direction, so shooting for others would have to be on my own terms... which I realize makes things difficult. Basically for me: design is for use by others, and photography is art for myself (and whoever else gains enjoyment out of it).
