What’s one tip you have for a photographer just starting out?
Soak up as much inspiration as you possibly can, from films, literature, photographers you love, illustrators, designers, Instagram/Tumblr/Pinterest, your old family photo albums, anything. Then, find out what it is about the things you’re drawn to that makes them special to you, and keep that in mind as you continue to shoot.

Can you tell us a few of your favorite Tumblrs to follow?
Tamara Lichtenstein, who shoots dreamy, blissed-out analogue photography; Mack-Sam, a gritty, New York-inspired street fashion and lifestyle blog; Diner Porn has gorgeously photographed diner restaurants of America; Things Organized Neatly is photos of things… organized neatly; Menswear Dog; and Mr. DIV, a graphic designer who makes gorgeous, minimal, animated GIFs. Good eye candy.

I’m on the Urban Outfitters blog again! Check out the full interview here:

Designer Adam J. Kurtz makes lists, collects receipts, compiles ideas, considers daily life, writes notes, “lives on the Internet,” and boils it all down into a body of work that is equal parts tongue-in-cheek, self-referential, and totally brilliant. His new book, 1 Page At A Time, consists of 365 handwritten prompts intended to encourage creative output, inspiration, and self-reflection — it’s a funny and conversational take on the process of working that is a must for any creative. Inspired by Adam’s perspective, we invited ourselves to the Brooklyn studio where he lives and works to take a peek at his creative process.

Had the opportunity recently to photograph 
Sandra Beijer, a blogger from Sweden who pretty much is the inspiration behind me wanting to ever get interested in photography, style, and anything related to NYC. If it weren’t for her guides to New York, her Photoshop tutorials, and her immaculately curated blog I don’t know where I’d be today. Been reading her blog since maybe 2010 and it’s still a constant source of inspiration!

Bidding adieu to sweet summer with friends and colleagues at The Jimmy hotel rooftop in SoHo last night. Never a dull moment with the Fohr Card family.
