At the Amon Carter museum, I picked up a book in the gift shop and instantly fell in love. Killgore Rangettes by O. Rufus Lovett. Photographed on the film in the 90’s, square format. I had to have it, overtaken by the former Cheerleader in me- go Artists. This shoot was inspired by that series, photographed on film in the studio with the Hasselblad- Damn I love Square.
During the wedding consultation, I found out these two professional musicians met in college, in music class, so photographing them in the studio with their instruments it was for the engagement session! Shot using the Hasselblad with both cinestill color and Ilford black and white film. I like to find out about my couples- how they met, what they enjoy in life, to create something that is unique to them.
We received the photos and we LOVE them! SO EXCITED!!!! THANK YOU! YOU’RE AMAZING!- Jasmine Fun having Jovany and Jasmine in the studio for their engagement session with both cinestill film, ilford, and digital. Film images: Fun digitals
You too can travel to the Center of the World! It’s about ten minutes outside the Arizona / California border in a town called Felicity, and in that town, is the “Official Center of the World.” ( and it’s cheap only costs $3 donation, or $5 for the tour and certificate!) A few years back a Frenchman named Jacques-Andre Istel, bought some land in the desert to retire, he named the town after his wife, Felicia ( whom I was lucky […]
Grain is Good. Taylor and Tommy’s wedding at 7 degrees in Laguna Beach. Photographed with the Hasselblad and Cinestill 120 medium format film. I saw hearts for Taylor, when I found out the bride’s signature drink was a Dirty Martini. The Groom’s tonic? Manhattan. Here they are during Cocktail hour with their signature tonics. Film Really gives a vintage look to this wedding, which is fitting, because the bride wore wearing her mother’s wedding dress. Grain, motion blur, camera blur, light […]
I HIGHLY recommend Night of Destruction at the Perris auto speedway They have Sangria ON TAP. The Next event is Saturday September 3, 2016. You can get there early, and meet and greet with the races and see the autos up close and personal. Shot with the Hasselblad on color negative film. Another one #inspired by the Rockford Files!
This year at comic Con, I chose to shoot the #cosplayer portraits with the hasselblad, instead of street approach 35 mm, and what a hassle! Boy did I miss that thing called autofocus. I used a new film for me, Rollei Digibase CN200, available through Freestyle photo.
I shot this series on film at sunrise in Frenso on the Blossom Trail Route. The scent from the almond blooms was worth the trip alone, and also waking up before the sun at 2:00 a.m. The petals look like snow on the trees and ground, and quite beautiful when they fall to the ground. Also stumbled upon the twig house belonging to one of the three pigs, no sighting of the wolf.The spots and imperfections you see are the […]
