Robert Hatcher

I shot these images of Robert Hatcher some time ago. At the time when we shot Robert was modeling with Chosen Model Management. In between shots he filled me in on some of the things that were taking place in his life. Engaged to his long time sweetheart Robert was looking forward to becoming a married man and had a list of things he was looking to accomplish after graduating college. 


Since then Robert has gone on to become a research assistant at Georgia State and an entrepreneur. It's always interesting to hear a little of what's taken place in people's lives while we're shooting, it kinda gives me a feel for who they are at the core. As appose to assuming or trying to make people into who I want them to be, I'd rather allow who they truly are to shine through.

It's impossible to maneuver through life without leaving fragments of who you are. With everything and everyone you come into contact with, you leave behind a trace. Traces are things we leave behind for others to latch onto to vividly paint a picture in their mind.


Traces help to piece together the puzzle that is each and every one of us as human beings. Traces help to answer questions one may have as to who we are as a person? What drives us? What scares us? What excites us? What impact have we had on this world. These are questions that the traces you leave behind help to answer.


What affect will you have on other's when you cross their minds? Will you cross their minds? What will you leave behind? Have you left substance behind. If for some reason you didn't like the answers said to yourself, don't worry. Climb into bed, sleep well and leave a trace tomorrow. 


"Whatever we do in our life, every decision we make it leaves a mark behind. We are living, breathing beings and our presence leaves an imprint in life and in the lives of other people." -BeautifulMag

FEAR-LESS

Fear can be extremely stifling to one's growth. You can allow fear to consume your mind and leave you in a state of being that has you believing that you are not capable. You can be a person of such substance, such depth and someone who has the potential to achieve great things and fear has the ability to step in and stop you dead in your tracks.


People often times use fear as a crutch or as a means to an out in a situation that they feel they are not prepared for. Allowing fear to take charge in a situation can unfortunately cause one to lose out on greatness, that they were unaware lay waiting ahead for them. It's extremely easy to let the fear of failing,of being let down or simply not being seen as enough cloud your vision. Fear can force you to make decisions that later on in life, you look back on and wish you had the opportunity to change.


There comes a time in a person's life where although the overwhelming feeling of fear is present, you must continue on with trying to achieve. Regardless of what it is that you have in mind to do, put the effort in and don't let fear stand in the way of your attempt. If you want something then you have to be willing to go after it. Sometimes we know deep down when something feels right and no matter how much our mind wants to tell us otherwise, our guts and our hearts say another.


You have to know that with all things there will be moments that scare you and that's okay! Don't let your fear dictate the decisions you make in life. Take that risk on love, take that risk on  a relocation, take that risk on a dream job, take the risk of truly accepting who you are. Fear can only do what we allow it to do and only consume as much of our lives as we give it the ability to. Sometimes we have to be more than what we believe we are, sometimes we have to walk in what we know we are.


Shed the thoughts that hinder you, that make you questions yourself, question your relationships, question your friendships. Get rid of those who don't believe in you and mean you no good. Become comfortable in your own skin, trust in the process, trust in something bigger than yourself. For it's when you are able to take risks in life that you have moved beyond being fearful and have become fearless.
