Inspiration: Jabari Jacobs

I recently got an opportunity to go and assist for Jabari Jacobs. I have looked up to him and his work for a long time and decided to take the chance and email him. It was really great talking and working with him. He motivated me and inspired me to finally stop thinking about my work so critically and just shoot what I love. He has a great business mind and is definitely a guy that is going to go very far. I hope I get a few more opportunities to work with him and maybe even collaborate on a shoot before he starts his journey into photography. These photos are inspired by his work. It had been so long since I tried to emulate someones work that I enjoy and I forgot how doing a simple exercise like this can get the inspirational gears turning.
