Never say.....

"Never": that is what I told myself in college when confronted with my first interior photography assignment. "Never will I photograph interiors after school. No need. No want. Noway". Now, in my fourth year since graduation (foot fully planted in mouth) I can say I enjoy photographing interiors for several amazing clients in New Orleans. Maybe its the precision, the textures and colors, the calm of having a static subject, or the satisfaction of getting the angle just right. Whatever it is - I keep going back to make more images of interiors spaces with the intention of capturing a feeling and most importantly:  showcasing the work of the talented designers who made it as such.

It all started about a year ago with Logan Killen Interiors  - a boutique interior design studio in New Orleans, and an amazing one at that. The talented team brought me on with full confidence in my ability to do their work justice in a photograph. With a few learning curves, several different lens rentals, and constant mental jogging of my education I now greet the opportunity to capture a space with far less anxiety than one year ago, and far more enthusiastically than three years before that. 


 

Here are just a few of my favorite images i've created recently for Logan Killen Interiors, Fireside Antiques, & Homegirl Studio.

Forgotten Film

The passing of the New Year was a marker of many things - One of these being that for about a year these four rolls of film sat in a tiny box under some papers - exposed but undeveloped. You could call them forgotten, but in truth I knew they were there. I thought about these rolls of film almost once a day each time I passed their resting place, and each time I thought of them I forgot a bit more what was laying on the film. Five days before New Years Eve, I finally dropped off the rolls to be developed at Bennett's Camera - One Kodak TriX 400, one Kodak Portia 400, and two Disposable Cameras.

These are some of my favorites.
