I feel most creative when it's go time.  Sometimes I tend to over think things leading up to an event or shoot.  Then when it's time to go, the environment and the mood take over and that motivates me. I am inspired by almost everything.  As a friend of mine said, "It's hard for any man to not be influenced by that which is around him."  With that said, one thing I am specifically inspired by is emotion.  When people express themselves, when they connect, well... that always has me at hello. My biggest challenge is not being inhibited by my insecurities.  There's such amazing, mind-blowing talent out there that it can be intimidating.  Instead of being intimidated, I try and embrace it.  Take it as a challenge to better my own work.
