Maddie was interning at an office near mine and reached out to shoot with me last year. Over the time she was in Seattle we shot several times and she was a good sport in letting me test a couple of cameras and vintage lenses I had repaired. Some these are on film and some on digital. Now that she is gone to Montana, I am back to testing my experiments on random people in Pioneer square.
I am not on Instagram or for huge followers, I take photos because I love to. But I have met and learned a ton from the people I follow and those that follow me. Your words and photos have driven me to go out, create, and capture some cool moments. I get so much inspiration from Instagram. So I wanted to give a little bit of that with you.
I have been heavily influenced by the gritty realism in the 90s pop photography and my own experiments with instant film (of all kinds) was the beginning of why I started collecting and shooting cameras again. So to that end, I'm giving away a Leica Sofort Instant Camera to hopefully inspire you to go out and make some art and take some photos.
