Today we’d like to introduce you to Gina Canavan.
The largest struggle for me ultimately was how a camera operates. The combination of ISO, F-stop and shutter speed was so perplexing. This is what intrigued me the most about photography and I felt an urge to conquer my feelings of fear and confusion about it. Also, the fact that I primarily shot on film didn’t help. I’d have to wait days or weeks for my results in order to begin troubleshooting where things had gone wrong on set.
The people I’ve met along the way: My mentors, clients, models, makeup artists, collaborators, supporters… If it weren’t for you guys there would be none of this. Thank you.
I love projects that allow for anything goes, no limits. Let the creativity lead where it wants! Let’s make art! At the same time I like working within my client’s parameters because ultimately I’m there to deliver a great end product. Nothing is more rewarding than a happy client.
I wouldn’t start over. Dwelling on the idea of how things could have been different is a waste of time. This journey has been wild but necessary for personal development. Aldous Huxley sums it up with this quote which I have stood by for a majority of my career, “Perhaps it’s good for one to suffer. Can an artist do anything if he’s happy? Would he ever want to do anything? What is art, after all, but a protest against the horrible inclemency of life?”
