Tatum on Film: Portrait Photography

Posted on Aug 19, 2016 in photography, portraits | 0 comments

When I met Tatum, I adored him instantly. As we talked, I learned more about his transition as a trans man over the course of several months.

Over drinks one night at C-Boy’s Heart & Soul, my partner and fellow photographer Victor and I were talking about our love of photography and the three of us decided to team up for a shoot to document the transition. Victor shot digital, I shot both 35mm and medium-format 120 film, and I hoped to capture this moment in time for Tatum. I was inspired by classic film photos of rock icons John Lennon (namely those iconic New York City photos by Bob Gruen) and a young Lou Reed.

Tatum’s super open, inspiring, and brave about his journey, so it only seemed fitting to blog these photos on the eve of Austin Pride.

We filmed this wedding alongside the talented photographers, The Nichols. We filmed a combination of HD video and Super 8 cinematography to truly capture this incredible day.
