Blending my most favorite artistic aspects: Pics & Kicks! There are who may know me for being a photographer or videography, and then there are those who may know me as Kelz w/ the Kicks! It was a hard decision to make, but I knew that if I wanted to bring my vision to life, especially with footwear, and besides the sneaker events, then I would have to put allz of my attention into it. With that being said I gradually started to tell people: “No, I’m done with the camera.”
It was hard and still is passing up certain events, but as an ARTrepreneur, my tunnel vision is for my future. Money is a given, because my skills and opportunities has challenged me for all types of occasions and atmospheres to adjust myself too in order to attain larger levels. The thing is, I knew that my art, focusing on shoes first was what I was after because even during the terrible time I still wanted to do it. When it comes to my camera, being booked with difficult people, or playing bill collector, unorganized events, and tons of other problems, the aggravation gets to a point where it destroys the creative process and I no longer wanted to participate in a lane that I wanted to keep for myself.
With limited time as well, it really was easier to say NO!, because most events you will do editing. I’m into candid moments so I’m always seeking an opportunity to capture a moment – which in turn means more footage to go through afterwards as well. Even with a lot of pictures and or footage, if the event was boring, or lacked visual excitement, then it was not only torture to get through editing, but if I’m marketing myself, those pictures of that footage from your lackadaisical event does nothing to further what portfolio. With allz of the hours, and hours, and hours of being in tuned to other people’s events satisfying their need, my needs weren’t being met and I wasn’t any closer to bringing my artistic vision to fruition, so a NO! became necessary.
However, I love being behind my camera, I see art in many things and want to capture that and many moments. I think my next Kandid Kelz project will consist of Secondline Sundays, all of my Kel Kelz Customs, and events where I’m involved in some way. The photographic journey is still heating up, and when it comes to the Kel Kelz Customs, I’m waiting to see how you would like yours once you ORDER.
