Hi!!!! you’re so cute thank you for writing something positive for once on the internet I highly commend you.
To be honest my days are incredibly busy and never the same, so I don’t know what a typical day is but I am flattered you asked. Today I woke up after 3 hours of sleep from partying with Austin (it was her bday) for two days in a row. I only had 30 minutes to throw some clothes on and find a ride to my lookbook shoot for my friend’s shirts that are coming out soon (@dossevia). We shot at the Sweatshop (@sweatshop_la) , which is an oasis of artists in the fashion district of LA where I mostly spend my time. You’ll learn about them soon enough if you keep up with my future work :) The shoot was fine; I needed a creative director but I know I got the shots Dossé needs! After that I took a nap at the Sweatshop, shot a few things, smoked, and had a meeting with Tim, Dupree and Cash. Then I went home and now I have to edit a few photos, send out a video and do some reading.
I only have one class on Mondays and two on thursdays and none on friday, so I almost have a 4-5 day weekend in order to schedule shoots and meetings.
My summer’s typical day was me taking the metro around DTLA and Downtown Long Beach shooting random gigs; using my food stamps at 7/11 and the internet in any Starbucks and spending time in the Sweatshop being productive with Tim (@hydreams) or hangin with Avery in LB. I was kinda homeless for my summer which was fun because of my immense freedom but I never really knew where I was going to be sleeping that night. I always had a change of clothes and most of the time had to carry my heavy camera and my laptop. Shout out to Austin, Jason, Avery and the Sweatshop for being my main homies <3
Now I have to balance class with working two campus jobs plus my video and photo jobs, which just got more intense because I’m taking on someone else’s projects in order to broaden my landscape and fill my pockets a little more.
I’m also planning my Uganda gallery show! I think I won’t be able to have it for a couple more months due to my new workload but the most important part to focus on is creating the perfect team to work with, which I am watching come together pretty seamlessly in front of my eyes.
Write me again and don’t be anonymous haha I don’t really have “fans” so let’s just be friends and I’ll tell you more details about all the weird shit that happens to me lol
