Often I talk about the importance of community but I never really touch on the actual size of a community. I don't think people realize how simple it is to propose collaborations over the internet. If you have people in your area or in areas you are going to visit you should always reach out and try to work together. These Collaborations can and will lead to more serious work and if nothing else a fun day or a lasting friendship. The photos featured below were taken by my friend Beth an extremely talented photographer that I met while studying abroad in Australia.
Each time I visit cali I make it a point to visit here and grab lunch, take photos or just catch up. Along with being a good friend she has introduced me to several creatives in NYC and LA. A little friendship goes a long way. Don't seek people in order to gain from them seek people in order to give and connect. Don't be afraid to ask for help. A closed mouth doesn't get fed and this is a sure fire way to never become a part of a small community.
