MEET SARAH HOLT
Meet Sarah Holt, a young, Venice, California based photographer whose artistic vision is behind the latest Bull & Stash look book. Sarah embodies the thoughtful and creative spirit of Bull & Stash. While this is her first time behind the camera for us, we first met Sarah as a model during one of our first photo shoots nearly a year ago.
With Camera and notebook in hand, she finds her adventure embarking on spontaneous road trips with friends, preferably to a scenic spot by the ocean.
Where are you from & where have you been?
I grew up on a farm 15 minutes outside of Portland, Oregon. Although I loved being in nature I was always a city kid. I worked hard in high school so I would have early release my senior year, which allowed me to explore Portland on my days off. Photography was my favorite class in high school - I took four dark room film classes. After high school I went to Parsons the New School for Design in New York City my freshman year and studied Photography and Design Management. I transferred to California College of the Arts in San Francisco and briefly studied Product Design before transferring to the University of Oregon and graduating in Advertising.
What was the inspiration to move to LA?
I have always loved the landscape on the west coast. I originally moved to LA to work in the advertising world but picked up a camera and fell back in love with photography. A camping trip with a group of friends in Big Sur really inspired me to get back into photography, along with two talented friends who came along on that trip, @morganphillips and @alexstohl. Soon after I began pursuing it professionally.
Where do you like to adventure/how?
I love being close to the ocean. My ideal adventure would include a small group of likeminded adventurous and creative friends taking a road trip or boat ride together — with frequent stops along the way. I have a few road trips planned with a few good friends of mine @samuelelkins and @oliviamcclintock.
How do you brainstorm your ideas?
I am constantly inspired by others. It is interesting how four photographers can go on a road trip together and all end up with totally different images and styles. The best advice I can give is to keep an open mind, try new things, and don't judge your work too much. Shoot A LOT and out of those 100 images 99 of them may suck but 1 of them could be magic.
