What You Don’t Know
Content creation can follow any number of strategies, but the one I aspire to embrace is a path of continual improvement. Especially when it comes to portraying people and telling stories.
What You Can’t Do
One of the best ways I’ve found to learn about portraiture is to work with people who do things I can’t. For example, I know very little about women’s hair and beauty trends. Recently, a longtime friend and collaborator of mine introduced me to an aesthetician. Erin Schwartz is a model and content creator who has been a great influence over the years. She created a collaborative event where Lauren Happee transformed her into a platinum blonde and I did a portrait of the final result.
