I have realized that you can close yourself off to life if you put walls up, but it’s a difficult thing. You can’t see over, people can’t see in, and you also can’t see out. So I’ve gotten quite comfortable with just being unafraid. I keep saying the same thing: it’s not about being fearless but really just embracing the fears and using them.

How does being a photographer help you with filmmaking / video editing?
The interesting thing about this question is I started off in film and video. I never really picked up a camera to shoot stills until maybe only recently. A few years if we’re talking “seriously”.
When you shoot still pictures, you only present what is on one frame, meaning you must make sure that what you choose to show is exactly what you want to show. I guess this part of photography helped me realise that each frame in a sequence of video is just as important as the entire sequence together. It allowed me to focus a more macro orientated editing style, making sure that I could say to myself; at any point I will pause the video, will this frame make sense in the sequence? While it may not always be relevant or possible to edit (or shoot) this way, it’s good for me to get into that frame of mind. It has allowed me to think a little bit more about planning the entire sequence, and shooting a video with as much detail and care as a still.
Do you think photographers / videographers have an advantage over still photographers in the way in which they are able to portray beauty not only in photography, but also in moving image?
I would say that they both have their advantages and disadvantages. It’s not always easier to explain something just because there’s more than one frame to show it in. Sometimes more frames leads to more ambiguity, just like a still. You can be very precise with a single frame. If you get it right though, a moving image can certainly show more of the picture.
I think they are pretty similar in many ways, it all depends on what you’re comparing. I do like to think that I have learned to appreciate a single frame still after having the luxury of a moving image though! While it may be easier to have the advantage of showing a beautiful landscape over multiple frames, it might not always be ‘better’. There’s still beauty in the unknown and wonder.
