[REMMY.] How's it going man? I don't think we've had a chance to really chat so this is going to be just as informative to me as it is to our fans! So who is Trevin Rudy, in terms of the "Creative"....How long have you been or doing freelance photography?
[TREVIN.] Trevin Rudy is someone with Passion. Ever since I have picked up my camera I've had the huge drive for seeing what the camera sees. Been doing Portrait photography for about 2 years and am on the road to 5K on insta!
[REMMY.] What's one of the biggest obstacles or challenges you've faced so far on your journey? I think a lot of people on the outside looking in, see a lot of the "final products" of creatives work but not all that has gone into making the visuals or art they see.
[TREVIN.] Portrait photography is the hardest area in my opinion. Most people just see my posting small boomerangs on my model. A lot of thought and posing goes into my portraits. When I plan a shoot I need my mind to go wild that is why I never scout ahead for most of my shoots. When I have never been somewhere before my mind can explore and picture what will look good for a portrait. Most people say to scout on every location. I'm disagree completely because my mind works better seeing something for the first time.
[REMMY.] What's your favorite type of photography? Look up to anyone out here in the photography community?
[TREVIN.] Portrait photography just really spoke to me from the get go. For example mainly every picture I post has a story behind it. Landscapes are cool and all but, can a portrait can express a human emotion! Also, you can have a lot more fun with it in my opinion. I look up to Mango Street and https://www.instagram.com/druephoto/. His style has always kept me going with my portraits and have him to thank for my grind!!
[REMMY.] So what's your overall vision for yourself? Even if it doesn't include pursuing this as a career, what is the "end goal" for your dreams in life?
[TREVIN.] Where I see myself or vision in the future is kinda interesting to most. Before Photography I was a huge LoL gamer. Gaming was all I mainly did in HS. Once I started seeing eSports on the rise and people taking eSports pictures I was hooked. My parents got me the D3300, which is a beast starting camera for products and landscapes. Started doing GFuel products and started to get my name out in the eSports area. Then, when I started taking pictures of people my life changed completely. Decided to step down from eSports and focus on growing my insta to where it is now. My end goal would to work as a full time eSports photographer or full time wedding photographer. Pretty much polar opposites lol
[REMMY.] So, sure you know, we're big on motivational quotes...leave us with one of your favorites....What's one that you would say you try to live your life by or aspiring to live your life like?
[TREVIN.] "One day you'll leave this world behind, so live a life you will remember". Once I heard this song and that line my life changed. This verse or quote has kept me motivated to keep going after my dreams! I want to live a life that I remember and not regret taking a leap of faith.
