How did you get into debt?
Student loans for camera and camera equipment, some medical debt from unpaid expenses by the VA for ER visits
Nov 2015- Urban fantasy shoot, available light challenge
How does your economic reality effect your art?
Being unable to purchase new equipment, specially camera, leaves me unable to book the lucrative work that would allow me to purchase new equipment... a dragon eating its own tail. In addition to economic reality, I am forced to sacrifice on artistic vision for personal projects due to a lack of physical assets to support it, which hampers quality of my portfolio for booking new clients.
Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
Yes, I'd be able to afford better equipment which currently limits what I can create and even employment opportunities
