We've done a number of posts over the years about personal work and projects and in this short video, thanks to Profoto, Jeremy Cowart takes you through some of his favorites. The importance of personal work is all about helping you stay focused, pun intended.
No matter what you're shooting to pay the bills personal work and projects help you keep in touch with the passion that got you into this business in the first place. Personal work typically gives you a chance to be more creative and push the envelope just a little more than most normal assignments.
On the Profoto site, this statement says it all...
At his core, Jeremy loves to make art. In a relatively short amount of time, Jeremy earned the respect of artists, photographers, and celebrities alike and is now hailed as one of the trailblazers in the industry. Jeremy uses a quick one light setup to create an image of a friend that has become one of his favorite images.
