Location Scouting

Went location scouting with Courtney recently to find potential spots for her to use for some portrait photography.  She’s done some amazing work and you can see all of it over at her website.




Portrait Updates

I’ve taken over 250 portraits of different employees at my internship in the past two months and it’s interesting to see the style of the portraits slowly change and evolve as I come closer to the end of the process.  Here are a few more examples of how they’ve been turning out.  It’s been too long since I’ve shared anything on this blog anyway.

Backdrop Tests

Took some test portraits of Courtney in front of her sweet new set up.  Originally intended for them to be in black and white, but the mix in color temperatures ended up making a super cool gradient that I was “all about”.




Periodically Double or Triple

The photo clerk at Walgreens just shook his head and said “I don’t know what happened, man.”

From Wisconsin

A brief selection of the black and white roll of film I shot while visiting my awesome family in Wisconsin during some hard times.  Except for the statue of Laclede, of course.  That was here.













Afterlife

As I share this last batch of photos of my recent trip back to Sicily, it’s hard to believe that we only got to spend less than two weeks documenting our stay.  What felt like an entire summer was condensed into such a short amount of time that I never thought I’d have the opportunity to capture so many great memories and beautiful places.  As I grow and continue to fall more and more in love with photography I feel so lucky to be able to use locations like Sicily as a playground for my work, and I love being able to share snapshots of what I consider to be the greatest place on earth.

I end this with the final roll of film I shot in Sicily, a roll I used just to take some random pictures on the way to my Uncle’s house on the last day of our trip, not realizing we’d be going to one of the most gorgeous spots on the island once we got there.  Just another reminder that no matter how prepared you are, some things have to be enjoyed in person and aren’t meant to be shared with the world.
