I got lucky so fart (this was a typo I decided to keep) this year with two dope shoots already under my belt, I got to design a set like a crazy person and shot on location at the beautiful yet kinda shitty W.A. Frost in St. Paul. I have to say that I feel so lucky to live in Minnesota and to have connections in such a creative and supportive scene. That being said, I also struggle with trying to "cater my portfolio" to what fits the "midwest aesthetic" so I can actually get paid to work commercially. I remember having this issue in school as well, which work do I display so I can get hired and support myself with my photography? Or do I keep doing the work that excites me and remain a broke bitch? Where is my line between wanting to create "fine art with meaning" and "just a nice pretty picture"? Or do I not even worry about all that at all and just do the damn thing. Somehow things weirdly work themselves out and I've found that if I just do the thing, then everything will fall into it's place. I won't forget to enjoy the what I love.
