So, i have this friend. His name is Will Swanson, and he takes phenomenal photographs. Will is pretty much within the top 3 people I have here in Montreal, and is such a phenomenal friend. He has a heart of gold, a quarky personality, a history in movie making and social work. He is going to be a nurse.
Last year, he told me that he would photograph me. This is a little intimidating to think about having a "professional" photo session.. mostly because I look at the photos he takes, and think "dang. there is no way I can look that good." and "i have NO idea how to pose." and... most of all"Wow. I had no idea how self-concious and critical I can be of myself."
in addition, i was totally convinced that he is unable to take a good photo of me. and, i am in a post-season, out of shape state. However, on friday, he proved me wrong. We shot into the night, and I was stunned at watchinghim work, how much fun it was... and, mostly, what were some of the results. To do things like this is such a huge boost in confidence. And, we are not even done yet. Here are a few.
His photography is called Ilyaxous, and you can see more here: ilyaxous Photography.
ps. below here, it becomes scandalous ;) If you care to venture further, be warned.
