Alex Lauzon: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Hard Work

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

Determined, conceptual and laid

back lol I think those 3 words

probably best describe me in every aspect of my life. I’m also a bit of a

geek, video games are a big part of

my life haha

Why do you do what you do?

Art was always a big thing for me

and when I started learning the

technique I fell in love with 

photography and decided made it

my primary medium.

 

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I put partying first when I started the

program in college and failed my

first year lol. Only then I realized I

loved it and started getting serious.

Made a deal with the program

coordinator to get back into it the

next year as long as I kept good

grades

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

Being punctual about everything,

and I'm still struggling, especially with

social networking. Also Being more

outgoing and social, It's always

stressful meeting new clients or

reaching out to people you want

to work with.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

When it comes to photography,

Annie Leibovitz and David Lachapelle

are people I look up to the most. I

doubt I've ever inspired anyone haha

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

Working for free... I do believe in TFP

although it's very important to know

when and under what conditions you

should do it.

 

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

As far as photography goes, I want to

focus more on personal work, and

also expand in fashion. In my

personal life, I would like to

eventually get back into music and

start a project. I eventually want to

move to Toronto and open a studio

with my girlfriend/partner in

photography

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Have fun, do what you like, believe

what you want and be who you are.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

“I don't want to be famous, I want to

be the best.” - Annie Leibovitz
