living creatively

if i only scrape a living, at least it's a living where i'm scraping. if there's no future in it, this is a present worth remembering.

for fires of happiness and waves of gratitude. for everything that brought us to that point on earth at that moment in time, to do something worth remembering with a photograph, or a scar -i feel genuinely lucky and hand on heart say i love doing what i do. and i may never be a rich man, or live long enough, then sadly i have a tale or two for the nephews. and i dig the thought of that. - mickey smith | photographer

saw this on my friend, heather's blog. A-MA-ZING!  the photographer - film combination is breathtaking.  i just had to share here.please take the six minutes to watch, listen and be inspired!!

the dark side of the lens (about surfing photographer mickey smith | filmed by astray films) was part of a project called short stories, established by the UK's relentless energy drink. the project challenged filmmakers to create short films that explored the lives of artists. you can see more incredible short films here.

unfortunately mr. smith's new website is coming soon. you can find his blog here.

p.s. be sure to check out heather's work too. she's not only an awesome photographer, but an equally incredible person.
