Taylor! your work is phenomenal. thanks for always being a constant source of inspiration for myself and many others. i know you answered a similar question like this before, but what's your favorite film for landscape photography? i've noticed that fujifilm accentuates the greens a lot and makes the photos almost grainy (i think you said something like that before) when i shoot with my minolta. what do you suggest for better outdoor composition? you're rad!
Ah thank you so much for the kind words. It means a lot.
As for landscape photography in general, I’m definitely not the authority on the subject. I’m typically loaded with film I like for portraits, and landscapes happen on a whim. I did, however, get a roll of Fuji 160NS from a friend recently and absolutely loved it. The greens are accentuated, but in what felt a darker tone, which blew me away. Check the photos I’ve posted from the hike to Alamere Falls to see what I got from that roll.
How did you get the measurements for your tumblr header? Cheers.

do you have a flickr page?
You work 60-90 hours a week, have a girlfriend, AND find time to read and eat burritos?!
Only because my girlfriend is amazingly supportive! Also, I try and use my lunch hours and any commute time to work on freelance, so that when I’m home at night, I can hopefully have some free time.
Oh, and always wake up early! This is a struggle though…
Hey Taylor! In a nutshell, what's a day in your career life like? I'm studying architecture and feeling in a rut on if it should be what I should pursue. After my girlfriend showed me your blog(freaking out how we look like haha), your lifestyle is pretty much what I aspire to do.
I’m super flattered by this! I’m such a goon, it’s hard to think that anyone would want to do what I do.
I lead what seems like a triple life sometimes, consisting of:
1. My corporate job, which is a hybrid role between retail stores and liasing with corporate, working on in-store merchandising and future merch solutions.
2. Freelance Project, which right now is under wraps, but is an area where I’m flexing my creative/art directing skills, working with really talented people to come to an eventual goal.
3. Personal work! Don’t forget about this, as it’s most important. Whatever your art form, make sure you do a lot of it for yourself, and find inspiration in that.
With that said, I work at least 40-55 hours for my corporate job, maybe 15-25 for freelance, and the rest of my time is for personal work.
for those recent hassy shots did you use a light meter? those exposures are on point!!
For some of them, my friend was nearby with his light meter giving me his readings. But for most, I was straying on my own with only my phone’s Light Meter app, using spot metering to find the high and low, and coming to a compromise for how I wanted to shot to look.
It doesn’t hurt that most of those shots were done in golden hour. ;)
