“Growing up, my mom took us traveling around the world. And she was always taking photos everywhere we went. It kind of inspired me to start taking photos. It gives you a really good understanding of how everything works, and so you have a better idea of how shots will look. Moving that into cinema and bigger projects, it’s really cool because the end result comes out really amazing,” he divulged.
