i’m on my last leg of getting home and all the feels just rushed in. it took a village to get here and I’m not talking about just the few months leading up to it the Olympics, this village has been around for years, i was accredited to go but wasn’t even sure if i was going to actually make the trip till mid June. everything that could’ve gone wrong was going wrong but things seemed to work out at the last minute, so i took that as a sign that this is meant to be.
to everyone i met the last few weeks i learned so much from every single one of you. special shoutout to the little crew that naturally formed between @krystelsaneh @jeffcohenphoto @danvernonphoto @coopsrun @alishalovrich @smjdagency
we all looked out, supported, and pushed each other. this tokyo experience wouldn’t of been the same if we didn’t gravitate towards each other. hopefully we can have this experience again in paris
the last 6 or so years i put my life on hold for what feels like a kids dream. i passed on career opportunities, demoted myself, and didn’t take job offers because i knew there wouldn’t be as much flexibility as i have now with my current work situation. with that being said @asalcocer
and everyone at 415 thank you supporting me through this letting me get away with the most ridiculous rto’s and making me stick to my goals when i wanted to give up on photography.
to the nike fam thanks for making @zhetrick
meet me back when i was first starting out so i can shoot for y’all. never would’ve imagined how shooting NRC sessions was going to lay the ground work that eventually changed my life and put me on this path.
thank you for this once in a lifetime opportunity seriously, the people i’ve met and the friendships I’ve made with most of y’all are everlasting.
lastly a lot of people have been asking me what’s next? …
