I did a lot of graphic design and animation before. In the end it just made me realize how much more I love writing and shooting.But I now have the ability to throw those elements into my creative work with ease. I also think that learning to see your work through the eyes of others is so important. To attempt to understand and predict how people will subjectively perceive your images.ML: Where do you see yourself in five years?LC: To have further established my voice as a photographer and director. Maybe living in some sort of a commune. Riding deeper in the tube. More dogs. Buying more dog food. Less clothing. A few more scars.ML: You’ve worked on some Adidas Original shorts, how was that?LC: It was a cool project. It was interesting, because it was a fresh use of digital media to tell a story, I mean, to sell products. The Adidas client was actually pretty nervous during the shooting though. I think he may have been a bit sexually repressed and the images were making him feel strange.ML: How do you know all these girls in your pictures?LC: Just girls I meet at the beach while I’m hanging out after surfing.
