Like many other photographers I've always got my eyes open for something cool. That can lead to a person having tons of stuff. I'm not a hoarder... yet, however if you walk around my studio you'll see things that I incorporated into my work. Vintage leather helmets, taxidermy or brass knuckles are cool and weird but to me it's something I NEED for work. So if you have any artist friends who seem to have tons of stuff don't judge their collections because it's amazing what inspires people. One of my latest shoots featuring a chrome ballon dog, because it's awesome!
