I was driving home today, got lost, and stumbled on a couple neat spots in South Minneapolis. I love getting lost. Maybe sites for future shoots?
(In the top shot I corrected the wide angle distortion a bit.)
My friend Anna Chambers-Goldberg poses in her attic studio in St. Paul last week. Her clothes that day exactly fit the weather/mood–colors, textures, fabrics… so she let me grab a portrait by the window. I liked the space, too, because the unfinished walls and rough floors invite you to create the decoration, drawing out art, energy, life.
I recently read on a Despair Inc. poster, “Just because you’ve always done it that way doesn’t mean it’s not incredibly stupid.” Not that I can think of a better way to hang Christmas lights, just that it could potentially be hazardous. I wanted to experiment with an angle like Vincent Laforet used in this amazing photo.
Hello to all my subscribers! Hopefully more people as well, but especially you regulars. Today I get to unveil my new photo website, which has been almost a month in the making. I’ve had multiple portfolio reviews, revisited interviews, overhauled my logo and learned plenty of new software to make everything work. I’m sure I’ll continue to tweak things over the coming weeks but I’d love any feedback or bug reports in the meantime. Take a look!
I visited my brother in Milwaukee for Halloween and thoroughly enjoyed his roommmates’ costumes: Edward Scissorhands, Capt. Jack Sparrow, Willy Wonka (the new one), John Dillinger, and Sweeny Todd. Notice the trend?
