“Whenever anyone asks me how I got the photographs I did, why I was often the only photographer present or got such unique access I reply simply, ‘Trust’.” – Jim Marshall

Kate and I went hunting for a posing stool for the our loft at the famous Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena. I didn't find a stool but a pretty cool old wooden box which you'll see in a post in the near future. The other find, which I was a bit hesitant to get at first, was an old SX-70 Polaroid camera. I had heard that The Impossible Project was going to be making film for the SX-70 again and it was in really good shape. Kate helped talk me into getting it as well which I am so stoked we did. I ordered some expired film just to make sure the thing worked because The Impossible Project isn't supposed to be producing anything for another few months. We figured the worst case scenario was that it was broken and would just look cool on our shelf, but it does work! So here are our first two pictures.

So the two year anniversary of this blog has just passed. I planned on doing something cool for it but things are still a bit crazy here with assisting and getting my head straight with shooting on a frequent basis again. I'm looking forward to some things that are in the works shooting wise. In the mean time I've started doing some "test" with a model agency here in LA called PhotoGenics thank you to those of you who hooked that up. I am approaching them more as portraits and I'd like to keep that vibe with them.

This is the first one I've done. Just shot another girl today but had hair and makeup.
