When was the last time you found a quiet place to disconnect? The kind of quiet that puts you in a daze and time seems to stand still. Gah! I feel like I caught this guy in the middle of one of those perfectly peaceful moments. I love witnessing people create little segments of quiet in their daily lives. I came across this surfer in his Land Cruiser atop a cliff in Hartland Quay. He was lost in his own world looking for the perfect set of waves. When the waves started to pick up, he drove his FJ down the side of this cliff, changed into his wetsuit and ran down to the water with his board.
I had exactly 3 frames left on a roll and here are all of them.
Also, these first two photos are available for print if you click on the shopping cart icon to the right of the images.
For an upcoming project, I thought to work with a new lab. This new project has forced me to start the whole creative process absolutely afresh. I have come up with a few things to consider as I start this new working relationship with Botique Film Lab (BFL).
To get the ball rolling on this blog post, I grabbed two of my favorite rolls (more on this later), hopped in a car, and went on a road trip to Northern Michigan. These pictures are all from this shoot and everything is developed by BFL.
Sidenote: Check out their latest album.
Weddings showcase a couple’s taste and how they bring their closest friends and family members together. Martha and Steven surround themselves with beautiful people (inside and out) and have impeccable taste in music, food, and fashion. All these elements shined in harmony on their wedding day. They got ready at the Inn on the Ferry, had a beautiful ceremony at the McGregor Memorial Conference Center, and had the best party for their reception at the Jam Handy. Check it out:
Michele is the curator and the owner of Collected Collage; an antique jewelry shop in Ferndale. I came across their storefront while exploring her city one evening.
Unlike so many other vintage jewelry shops, her place had such a minimalist aesthetic. Everything seem to have been placed with intention and it was so obvious that all these pieces had a story behind them. I try to savor the little things in life and I think Michele looks at fashion / jewelry in a similar light. When I met Michele, I remember immediately asking if I could photograph in her space. That conversation lead to this shoot.
