Lawrence Fafard: Interview

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

Life

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

I am one of the voices of all the beautiful things that cannot speak.

Why do you do what you do?

Because it makes me feel alive.

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

I never aspired to be a pro photographer. I just did what I love and everything took place. The more I showed my work, the more people came to me for what I am doing. I guess that’s when I knew I was at the right place.

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

Had to overcome my bad Karma. Life has actually been really shitty to me before I started photographing.

I could never be enough grateful to my dad for believing in me after all.

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

There are actually a lot of really inspiring ones around me. People that listen to their heart, free as the wind. They go wherever life brings them. No future plans, living life to the fullest day after day. Shootout to Cam and Kimi.

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

Comparing my work to others. Worst thing. We need to concentrate on our own journey.

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

I’d love to expose my work soon enough. Besides that, photography studies and travels.

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

Stop fighting. We all have a place in this world; you might not have found yours yet. Try everything, go everywhere. You’ll find.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Do what you love, everyday, forever.
