ON INSPIRATION

‘Inspiration’ and ‘being inspired’ can sometimes be buzzwords somewhat. It got me thinking recently, what does it all mean to me? I think inspiration for me is the driving force behind everything I do. It is ideas, dreams and aspirations, which drive me forward when put together.

When I was at uni, I had a pleasure of meeting and working briefly with a British artist Louise Clark. She was being interviewed after her exhibition, and I was just listening, but I remember the journalist asked her “Where does your inspiration come from”, to which she replied “Everywhere. I always carry a little notebook with me and scribble down ideas whenever they come”. At the time I wasn’t a photographer or in the creative industry at all, but for some reason her answer stuck with me, and I think now it plays a big part in my life. I’m not looking for ‘inspiration’ in some particular spots or places. I try and always keep my mind opened to anything I see, hear and experience. And I also scribble down things as they come to my mind (Notes on Iphone play the role of a little notebook:)Gotta go with the times!)). Sometimes they are silly, or I type them down too fast, and they don’t even make sense if let’s say a stranger reads them, but I think with time these ideas somehow come together in our mind and become something more than just a scribble. Sometimes I have too many of those and it makes me so impatient to implement them all at once! Having to wait and take it slow is annoying, but┬ánecessary.┬áI’ve been inspired by nature, its power, its pureness and beauty. I’ve been inspired by people I’ve met. I’ve been inspired by random things I’ve seen on a street. It doesn’t always relate to photography or business, sometimes just to becoming a better person, or dreams for the future.

Keep your mind opened and dream big))
