The purpose of this “Are you Interesting?” project is to capture photos of interesting people that I know or come across. Everyone is dressed in their own clothes, in their own locations with their own things. All photos are taken by myself and Todd Keith (my fiance). Let us know if you are enjoying it, we love to hear comments!
April 2010: Stephen Simmons
What can I say? Stephen Simmons is just a really cool guy. And not only is he wicked talented, he is also kind, modest and has awesome energy. He is always laughing and smiling which is nice to be around. So if you know Stephen Simmons, you are lucky to have such a cool person in your life. He is a very talented writer and director (Short Films), plays the guitar and piano, loves vintage and retro, loves old black and white films (silents to talkies) and 80’s horror flicks , manages the Tower Theater, and organizes and runs the event An October Evening in SLC, UT. Todd and I have had the privilege of showing our work at An October Evening, which has been a really fun project for us for the last two years. One interesting thing about his films, that usually only his close friends would know, is that everything he writes has to do something with his personal life. He is very passionate about his work… and it shows! Stephen says “My ideas and inspiration come from real life experiences(relationships, phobias, work, strangers, acquaintances etc etc) I always have an actor to play me in some way. When I act in my films, I always play someone or a character I despise in real life”.
