Roger and all,
My name is Matt and I'm a young filmmaker/photographer living in Asheville, NC. Since graduating college I've been pursuing both my passions for filmmaking and photography. I've been extremely fortunate in the past couple of years to work almost continually honing my skills without interruption.
For my photography work I've been shooting a project on rural dogs, their doghouses and the lives they lead in the rural Southeast. I've just recently started a project that deals with a fundamental of photography -- just the way light appears and defines the rural landscape and their inhabitants. They can both be found by going to http://mmbrown.arloartists.com/
I'm open to any comments on the projects and would love to hear what other photographer/cinematographers think as well.
I also had a quick couple of questions for Roger and anyone else who does both still photography and cinematography...namely, do you see much division or find something freeing about going in-between these two art forms? Do you find yourself coming off of a film and wanting to do still photography work?
I ask this because I've been seeking the advice of people who specialize in both worlds, and many want to push me in focusing COMPLETELY on one direction or the other. I've found that my heart and instincts lie in dividing my time with both, and that they exercise and expand different skill sets.
Anyway, any comments are helpful and welcome.
Thanks so much,
