As a part of my personal growth as a photographer, I make it a point to follow the work of a number of other photographers with various styles and tastes. One team that I’ve become particularly fond of is that of Sarah Rhoads Photographers—Sarah and Chris Rhoads are a husband a wife team based in Seattle, and their talent is all but impossible to ignore.
This week, Sarah posted a recurring project called The Self Portrait project (see parts one and two). It’s an amazing project—it has inspired me to follow Sarah’s lead and make it a goal to take one self portrait per month in 2011. Thanks for the inspiration, Sarah. I’m looking forward to pushing myself beyond the conventional portrait and telling a more personal story through my photography.
