When it comes to being creative there is inspiration all around us. I did a live interview last week, and someone asked about being creative and where inspiration comes from. I believe Inspiration comes from your life and the things you love. So how do you know when you really love something? We use the word "love" so freely it's hard to know what we "love" and what we just "like." All I can say is that your feeling will show you what inspires you, whether that is love or just a strong like is debatable but that's another conversation all together.
This is an old image I shot the day after the inauguration of President Obama during his first term. It was an historic moment no matter what side of the fence you sit on, and I decided to shoot a story called "stars and stripes," inspired by my feeling at that moment.
