We had the good fortune of connecting with Marc Winston and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Marc, the decisions we make often shape our story in profound ways. What was one of the most difficult decisions you’ve had to make?
The most difficult decision that I’ve ever had to make is deciding to truly believe in myself. To fully and unapologetically immerse myself in that experience without expectations, without guaranteed outcomes. The process of self discovery is limitless and crucial to our development, we are always learning, growing and evolving. However, on occasion we forget who we are, and what inspires us to create or capture a moment in time. I had to delve inward to rediscover myself, and by focusing inward I was able to remember and see the beauty in life, the light and the dark.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m excited to continue to experience the natural evolution and magic of this artistry. Through the lens I’m constantly reminded that each person is divinely unique and there is a spirituality and magic in our uniqueness that is unwavering. As an artist one of the lessons that I’ve learned along the way is that you cannot separate who you are from your art. When I first started shooting, in many ways it was therapeutic to step outside of myself and focus on the world around me. Over time I began to recognize that the uniqueness of my eye, my perspective, my experiences carry an energy that shapes what is being captured through my lens. This uniqueness is your gift to yourself and the world and cannot be separated from the art, nor should it.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Due to COVID, my favorite spot in the city is at home with my family. Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Special thanks goes to my management team, family, friends and creative collaborators.
