About My Photography
I'm old school. I shoot mainly medium format film, a lot of black and white. My favorite camera is my Hasselblad 500 C/M, the lens is amazing. I also shoot a lot with toy cameras: I have a vintage Diana, Holga w/ Polaroid back, and more. I love shooting Polaroids, especially with expired film. My favorite is my SX-70 Sonar.

I recently was given our family Kodak Brownie from the mid 1950s, and I've started shooting a project with it. It has a plastic lens that's slightly wide angle, and the images have a real cinematic feel to them. It may very well become my second favorite camera.

I've tended to shoot more nature and urban landscape type work, but I'm trying to push myself in new directions. I haven't worked with models much but I would love to do that.

I'm not likely to churn out a 30+ image set shooting the way I do, it's pretty different. Shooting medium format film is slower than digital, but the flip side is that you can get some very high quality results. They blow up nice and big, too.

About Me: I work as a computer geek, but my passion is photography. I've been taking pictures on and off for years, but I've gotten a lot more serious about the craft in the last couple of years.
Body Alterations: None. I was anemic as a kid and had lots of blood tests. The end result is that I am very leery of needles. I love to look at some cool ink and piercings on others, though.
Favorite Bands: The Format, Camera Obscura, Bloc Party, Howling Bells, The Clientele, Club 8, Ladytron, Snow Patrol, Death Cab For Cutie, Metric, Yo La Tengo
Favorite Movies: Directors I like: Wong Kar-Wai, Takeshi Kitano, Kinji Fukasaku, Martin Scorcese, Errol Morris, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Krzysztof Kieslowski, Zhang Yimou.
Favorite Books/Authors: Anything by Irvine Welsh.
Likes: Pumpkin pie. Vintage cameras. Pretty smiles.
Pet Peeves: Mean people. Not too much else, I'm pretty easy going.
Pays The Bills: Computers. Hopefully photography someday, or I'd love it to at least pay for itself

Polaroids of Scarlett
I had my second shoot with Scarlett recently, a very pretty redhead. You may have seen some pictures I posted of her a few months ago.

As I was gathering up my gear, I noticed I still had one pack of expired Polaroid 669 film that I'd never used. I really love that film it has beautiful tones, so I grabbed it and the camera that goes with it. I'm really did.

It just fit so well with the light and colors there in the room and outside. The light was wonderful, really gorgeous. And Scarlett brought a lovely dress along that was a family heirloom.

Yeah she is The first model I've shot twice, and the second shoot was better than the first I think.

I wouldn't be surprised if there are more down the road. And I still have to scan and edit the b/w film we shot
