008 Sarah Moore: On Facing Fears and Year Long Projects

Sarah Natsumi Moore is a commercial and editorial photographer based in Austin, Texas. Having previously worked as the in-house creative for the largest travel magazine in The Netherlands, she is now enjoying the sunny freelance life in the lone star state.

It was so much fun interviewing Sarah.  When I meet people who are part of my tribe it makes me feel less like I belong somewhere.   For most of my life I have felt like the black sheep struggling to ‘fit in’ with the mainstream ways, and when I read Sarah’s blog I knew I had found a kindred spirit.  Sarah Moore is both funny and witty and a great example of someone who is willing to overcome her fears and put her work out there. 

We talked about her 12 Experiments project: which is her personal year long project of doing a different experiment a month for a year. 

The challenges of doing long term projects.
