DOCUMENT the Fresh / Interviews: Phil V

pic1Who or what first got you interested in photography?
I’ve always been into creating visuals.  I’ve been teaching myself photoshop since 12 years old.  At about 20 years old, my close friend purchased a digital camera.  I borrowed his camera whenever I wanted to shoot something but soon after, his mother felt I was borrowing it too much so I barley asked for it, which was a blessing in disguise.  That’s when I had to purchase my own camera, it was a Polaroid.

My parents would let me borrow the camera, which was a big deal. Getting back a roll of 36 from the developer was super exciting. Doubles were a must: one set for the scrapbook and one for collages. Looking back, roller coasters were a fantastic subject matter for an aspiring photographer. They’re like huge sculptures really. Without realizing it, they made me think about perspective, motion, depth of field, and of course composition. Sneaking my camera on the ride for point of view shots was thrilling ——–
