After reading a few articles in Lula, I’ve come to realize that for many their grandparents ( mostly grandmothers) played a big part in influencing their future careers. This applies to me in some way, my mother would tell me stories about when she and her mother would spend hours downtown in stores like The Bay, Olgilvy and Berks shopping the latest trends. These were the fond memories my mother holds very dear and somehow they touched me , even though I don’t wear the latest trends only what feels comfy. I do like fashion in the sense of visual attraction in photography. Without these stories I don’t think I would have been interested as much, they influenced me because they make my mother happy.
At first I thought was ment for nature photography and had love only for that but when I’d look back on some portraits had taken for a photo project, I kept thinking wow they’re pretty good, better than my nature pic’s to the point that now all I really want to become a fashion photographer, for the creativity in the sense that it’s artistic, that I can create & tell a story.
Our ancestor’s have shaped us in some way but the fact remains you are your biggest influence. I wonder who inspired them?
Randomness of the day!
I recently discovered that M0851 is a Quebec purse design company! I was so surprised and proud! I love purses and love their design. Found out thanks to magazines bought last night, expensive but best buy ever!
