STARDUST: What is your current obsession and why?
EJ: I am currently obsessed with eating fancy cheese and grapes. It makes me feel sophisticated. Like I should be sitting at a cast iron table in the middle of Sicily during the spring time.

S: Describe your perfect day.
EJ: 
My perfect day would be a sunny 78 degrees with a soft wind. A latte in hand strolling through a city with a camera on my shoulder and a good friend by my side. Followed by some finger foods with a large amount of Margarita.

S: Tell me about your process for developing concepts for shoots.
EJ: The concepts I shoot really stem from things that appeal to me. It has everything to do with my state of mind at the time and how I’m interpreting things I’m seeing around me.

S: What attracted you to fashion first?
EJ: 
My mother is a very fashion forward woman and always has been. I think that was a big influence without me even realizing it. What I love most about fashion is how many stories it can tell and how each piece makes a different statement. I love the lack of rules and the limitless imagination.

S: How do you go about picking your team for a shoot?
EJ: 
I like to work with people who share a similar aesthetic as me, but have something to bring to the table that I may not. I like people who are perfectionist at their craft and think outside of the norm..

S: What are certain things that you feel like you need to work on?
EJ: Finding more ways to stay inspired. Having an amazing idea or concept doesn’t come on as easy as flipping a switch. I wish it did.

S: If you could do a collaboration with anyone (dead or alive) who would it be and why?
EJ: 
I would love to collaborate with Steven Klein. I admire his dark vision and love the emotions portrayed in his photographs.

S: As artists, we are constantly learning. What advice do you have for beginners?
EJ: Never get too comfortable. Being uncomfortable is an important part of becoming a well-rounded artist.

S: Tell me about your first professional shoot and how it made you feel.
EJ: It scared me but it also made me feel excited. Everyone on my team was so talented. It was intimidating but at the same time I was thinking “wow, these people trust in my ability to execute their vision” The feeling was surreal and somewhat addictive.

S: What is your life motto?
EJ: Stay hungry.

Anyways, very good site!

  8. Incredible! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a totally different topic but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Outstanding choice of colors!

  9. First of all I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thanks!

I’ve been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
