For my second Point of View Interview I chose to pick someone who is passionate, not only about taking photos, but also, about the subjects themselves. Damon Malick has an eye for what a camera should shoot and carelessly tunnels his personality in each of his photos. This aspiring photographer has great potential into making his love for photography into a successful career. With incredible eye-catching images, Damon has a knack for choosing the right moment to capture anything that catches his eye. Check out his Point of View Interview!

Question 1: What got you into photography? 

I got into photography pretty much by accident. I took a sunset photo that turned out really well. And from there everything got better and I ended up loving it! 

Question 2: What people intrigue you or inspire you to pursue photography? (Can be in any field i.e music, any authors or photographers, etc.)

 Peter Lik (landscape photography) and Clark Little (ocean photography) inspire me. They're both photographers that take some pretty amazing images. I first went to a Peter Lik gallery in Palm Springs 4 years ago and just fell in love with how amazing everything looked and how it felt as if I was there at the location. 

Question 3: What influences your style of work?

In most cases, dramatic dark lighting is what influences my work. I love the look of a really dark smokey photo with the subject only illuminated slightly. 

Question 4: If you were to define as a certain style, what would it be?

My style, again, usually leans toward a darker effect. With landscapes, my photos tend to be more vibrant, but with cars and portraits they tend to be on the darker side. 

Question 5: What is your favorite photo you have taken?

 My favorite photo would probably have to be this waterfall picture I took in the Bahamas. 

Question 6: Any plans for developing this into more than just a hobby? 

Yes, I do. I already do shoots now once or twice a week, but in the future I'd like to be able to do it as a side job. Potentially I'd also love to be able to travel a lot more and take photos.
