Hey man, big fan of your work! I’m a film student that would like to try my hand at still photography, any advice for someone starting out?

Hmmm, well I could go on for days on this subject, Ive gone from being a photographer, to quitting photography to go to film school, and then kind of back again. 

Over all the biggest difference is how a narrative is communicated and how movement is captured. If you’ve learned lenses really well in film school then you’re VERY prepped for photography.

Really, and everyone says this, the only way to start is to start shooting. Get a cheap film camera, I say film because when you have limited shots you will take your time framing and composing, and shoot at least a roll a week. That’s my advice.

Let me know how it goes and when you get shots up. Id love to see.
