Summertime Film Photography: Port Aransas

Posted on Aug 28, 2016 in photography, portraits, travel | Comments Off on Summertime Film Photography: Port Aransas

As the summer winds to a close (calendar-wise, not weather-wise), and Facebook feeds fill with adorable back-to-school photos, I thought I’d do a post of film photography commemorating our much-too-short summer. I’ve been having fun the last few months taking out the very first camera I learned on — my Pentax K1000. It’s been serving me well on adventures with my little Z. Here are a few from a long weekend in Port Aransas.

Tatum on Film: Portrait Photography

Posted on Aug 19, 2016 in photography, portraits | Comments Off on Tatum on Film: Portrait Photography

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.
