Can I just say I had such a fantastic time shooting with Johnny Hagan last week! (@thejohnnyhagan) I could feel the confidence coming off him the moment he stepped into the room, more than I have ever felt from him. For a little back story, John and I went to high school together and met through theatre. After school we went our separate paths as most do, but reconnected recently through social media and our new found passions. Mine being photography and him fashion.
I began the portrait session by asking him what his goals and aspirations were, big question but I needed to know so I could photography accordingly. Honestly I was surprised by the answer, he told me he found fashion and is so in love that he’s moving to LA to pursue it. He said he feels like he’s found his calling so to speak and has never felt so happy. John’s wearing what he wants to wear and fully embracing himself! Thats what it’s all about, doing the things we love, because at the end of the day it’s only us and our state of mind. So why not live life to the fullest following our passions and becoming the confident selves we’ve dreamed of as young theatre kids.
Thank you, John, for restoring my faith in chasing dreams.
