I've been trying to focus on doing more personal work lately. To aid that, I got together with some friends and fellow photographers and started a little monthly themed photo challenge. Nothing too crazy, just a way to push each other to get out and shoot some photos, even when we might not always feel like it.



Phil was the subject of my latest challenge. I didn't win the challenge, but I've found myself enamored with the results of my photos anyway. Phil is a local hip hop artist who goes by the stage name Dat Phella, and he is sincerely one of the most humble and talented people I know.



The further I explore photography and where I see myself in it, the more I am starting to enjoy creative freedom. Weddings are great. Paying clients are great. But sometimes it's nice to do things on my own terms. I'm glad I'm pushing myself into that situation more often.
