Gerald Larocque: Interview

\\

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

Drive

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

I’m Gerald. A cactus collecting, photographing, bunny herder.

Why do you do what you do?

When you know, you just know.

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

The early 90’s when my parents gave me my very first Kodak disposable camera.

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

always comparing your work to those around you, stop comparing.

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

Having a strong support system is always a good backbone for any individual. My family and my other half have been that backbone. Though I do personally believe it is the true drive behind someone that inspires him or her to follow their dreams and be better.

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

Though analog is beautiful, always shoot as many different formats as possible for every shoot you go on. Sometimes I get so caught up in the analog world that I sometimes don’t get the photo I envisioned.

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

I have been putting together a collective of imagery entitled “the day dreamer” which is several photos away from becoming gallery ready, so that’s what’s up!

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

Its not about who did it first, its about who did it better.
