In December last year Rachel and I took a trip to seattle to see Jeremy Cowart's Lifefinder tour. I have been a fan of Jeremy Cowart's work for a long time, and he is one of my biggest inspirations. He is humble, talented, and artistic in a way thats not self glorifying or prideful in any way. He is also giving, and generous. He is the founder of the Help Portrait, a moment dedicated to helping Photographers, makeup artists, hair stylists, and many others give back to their communities. He is in so many ways a picture of the kind of man I wanna be when I grow up:) and it was amazing to meet him and hear him speak. We drove to seattle from montana for that, but ended up staying a couple days. I hadn't ever been to the city before, and instantly fell in love. we went to the art museum, stopped at pikes place market, and saw the gum wall, and visited the first Starbucks(Picture above). We decided to leave the digital cameras behind for most of the trip, taking a couple old cameras and film. All images are unretouched or edited, except for the shot of us with Jeremy Cowart, because it was severely underexposed haha turned it black and white. We haven't shown these images anywhere else, and just got one of the rolls back from Richards Photo Lab last night. Enjoy!
All images taken on Kodak Portra 400, with a Canon AE-1 35mm and Bronica Etrsi Medium format camera.
