One of the main issues of being a creative, I would say, is being a problem solver. You have an idea of what you want to create in your head. To get to that final image you have to solve a series of problems. How will I light it? Where will I get costumes from? Where will I shoot it?
Some of these problems are easy to solve. You may have a team already behind you so makeup and models are easily found. Some of you may not. We all have our own problems. Due to the genres I shoot, my biggest issue is costumes, props, and locations. Sometimes you have to learn to think outside the box to solve these issues. A long time ago I created an Evil Dead image as part of a series. My main issue in creating that was ‘where the hell am I going to find a cabin in the woods to shoot at?!’
