Surf Therapy for Autism

my kink is when people admit i was right
Интервью со Скоттом для ABILITY Magazine, выпуск Oct/Nov 2009:

Though he shares the rugged good looks of his father James, actor Scott Caan has steadily made his own way in Hollywood, with roles in films like Ocean’s Eleven (series), Gone in Sixty Seconds, and in HBO’s hit series Entourage. He’s also proven himself as a writer-director, with credits including Dallas 362, The Dog Problem, and the soon-to-be-released Mercy. But few of Caan’s fans are aware of his volunteer work with Surfers Healing, an organization which introduces autistic children to the joy of catching a wave.
Joined by Caan’s surfer buddy, Keith Kendall, ABILITY Magazine met with the artist at his Hollywood Hills home to discuss his work outside the limelight, and how helping others learn to surf has had a lasting impact on Caan’s life.

The Appendix: How to Photograph Naked Women, by Scott Caan

Nine tips gleaned from our conversation with actor Scott Caan:

1. Temporarily reside in a hotel.
2. Date an uninhibited artist type.
3. When she asks you "How come you never take photos of me?" say, "It's just not my thing."
4. When she insists, take out your camera.
5. Use any available light. Use the hotel-room lamp if you have to.
6. Pick the right pose. "The idea is to come up with something that you find beautiful. Sometimes something raunchy is something beautiful to somebody, but to me, that's not it."
7. Don't force it. "Anything you shoot photos of, it's what you keep in the frame. You look at something, and if you really want to take a photo of it, take a photo of it. The second you start adjusting things and making it work, that's when it becomes photography as a job, and that's just not my style."
8. Call ten female acquaintances and ask them, "Hey, can I shoot photos of you?"
9. Repeat process with each.

Предисловие Скотта к «Photographs Vol. 1»:

“When I was a kid someone told my father that they thought he was a great artist, and he laughed. I asked him what was so funny, and he said, “Picasso is an artist; I’m an actor.”
So I started acting when I was old enough to realize that I would do anything not to have a nine-to-five job. At the time I had no idea what an impact the art would have on me. I joined a theater group. I obsessively studied plays, playwrights, actors, and directors. I lived and breathed theater. I lived and breathed acting, and writing. I really felt that I wanted to be an artist. I wanted to express myself. I wrote plays, I wrote movies, I acted in movies. Then I started to direct. I made movies, I made plays. I even wrote shitty songs.
Whether frustrating, rewarding, painful, or just embarassing, I usually felt full… That’s all we really want.
So when I didn’t, I would take a picture.
I took a bunch of photos with a bunch of different cameras that were all given to me by my father. The guy who says he’s not an artist… he’s wrong.
As an artist today, I think it is almost impossible to do exactly what you want. You have to listen to other people. You have to work with opinions. You have to change. Purity in most art forms is a struggle. Certainly acting or writing. Especially directing. So much that sometimes the art gets lost. The feeling of it anyway. Having your ideas, cognitive or not, and following through precisely… Not impossible, but for one reason or another, really hard.
Photography, to me, is pure. It’s the person holding the camera’s eye, and that’s it!
Like it or not, it is what it is.
Hope you like my photos, but they won’t change either way. They are what they are. That’s what I love about them.”
