ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER
Hello! My name is Aris Jerome. I'm a 26 year old Los Angeles based photographer. I moved to Los Angeles from the Bay Area 5 years ago in order to pursue my dream in becoming a successful visual artist. I started off shooting music videos at 19 years old. After creating my first video I quit my 9-5 job working at Lowes Department store. I just knew this is what I wanted to do with my life. I haven't put the camera down since. For a more in depth look at my works feel free to visit my website www.thankyouarisjerome.com
My passion has brought me to LA where I have met some amazingly talented people on my journey. This city is a melting pot for talent and you can learn so much from the people who have made their dreams come true. They inspire us. Which is why I'm creating this photobook. This is the biggest project I am doing yet and it is one I have always dreamed of. I'm doing this to inspire others and encourage anyone that opens this book to follow their own dreams....
ABOUT MY FIRST BOOK
Inspiration is a powerful feeling. So powerful that it can change our lives by giving us the motivation we need to follow our goals. We are inspired by people who have followed their goals and succeeded. These are the people I am capturing for this project. My main goal is to create a 300+ page 8 x 10 hardcopy photobook that not only captures the raw personal feeling of portrait photography but have you really get to know who I am capturing. Have them connect with us and tell us what really keeps them going to do what they love. I want viewers to be inspired to do what they love and follow their dreams as well. It's important that we never lose that spark for creativity and push ourselves to what truly makes us happy. This isn't just a photobook... It's an experience.
With each portrait session I capture of an actor or artist. I will include a video of them answering one question. "What Inspires You?". This is the theme of my book and the videos will be posted on my social medias. The quote of their answer will be printing beside their photo series in the book. I will capture their talents in motion whether that be singing, dancing, creating, ect.
I appreciate all of your support! This is one of many projects I look forward to creating for everyone.
Risks and challenges
Through my journey in creating I have been lucky to meet talented people in this industry. Your funding will help me budget out my shoots and jumpstart my year to have this in your hands by December! The more talents I get for this project the more the project will grow. I will shoot 60+ talents with a 5 page story of each. That will make a 300+ page hardbook to remember.
Passion is a dying art and in this day and age it is oversaturated with uninspiring media. It is important to give the push for our youth to create what they love and inspire others. I will continue reaching out to other artists and actors as the year goes on to complete this book. The more people are involved the more powerful of an impact this will be. I will complete this book by the end of the year and it will be in your hands by December.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
