One Last Tintype Session At Photobooth

with 3 comments

We headed to Photobooth San Francisco this week to get what will be our very last tintype portraits made in its studio. Photobooth will be closing at the end of March 2014.

If you’ve been following my blog for the last few years, you know I love this place. Vince Donovan, one of the owners, helped me revive my dad’s old Land Camera on my second visit to the shop. I blame him for getting me hooked on shooting pack film. I discovered quirky cameras like the Lomokino at Photobooth, and connected with some really cool local artists as well. So yeah, I’m pretty bummed that its doors are closing.

But what better way to say goodbye to this truly unique studio than to have your tintype taken? Bridget had hers done a couple times before, but this is the first time I’ve been immortalized on a metal plate. We walked out with of total of eight tintypes, all brilliantly crafted by the super talented Michael Shindler.

So long, Photobooth, and thank you!

Wow. Suki Is Doge.

My last blog post of 2013 is dedicated to a photo I took of Suki back in 2010. This image became part of one of the biggest memes of the year, thanks in part to the comic sans someone graced it with before sending it off into viral internetlandia.

In fact, The Verge just ran this article today about the origin of the meme, which includes a touching story about Kabosu the Shiba Inu as well as excerpts from an interview with yours truly. Check it out!

Looking back on the night I took this photo, I remember how hilariously difficult it was to work with Suki. Think she was the perfect little model during my 52 Weeks Project? Think again:

Many pose. Such uncooperative. Wow.

One does not simply repeat a project like this year after year, but Suki still spent plenty of time in front of my cameras in 2013. This was the year of pack film adventures with my Land Camera and black and white photos with my old rangefinder, at least for my personal photography.

Big thanks to all who stopped by the blog this year. Stay tuned for more Suki adventures in 2014!

Morning Walks

I’ve been trying to make a point of getting out and greeting the sun as it rises lately. On clear mornings, the warm glow that radiates from autumn leaves makes rolling out of bed earlier feel all the more worthwhile. These particular photos were taken with my trusty cell phone camera :)

In other news, I’ve been working on overhauling my main website. Check it out!
