And off on another one

Well I think I’ll be speaking to the either a little more regularly. I quit my social media accounts recently. I don’t see the point of most of them as they don’t produce anything but wasted time. Out in Nashville shooting for Nissan again. Hell someone must love me to be doing it time and time again. Thank got for having good relationships. I produce and do it in a timely manner all of my clients know this and damnit if it isn’t why they don’t hire me. I think. Seriously blessed I’m to have good clients.

Out doin my thing. Still ain’t printing shit. But hell I gotta put something somewhere or no one will see it

Work play my life

Who reads blogs……… anyhow….

well I come to a point in my thought thin of what really deserves print? send out promo ? to get thrown away yet again… is it I’m too jaded to print a goddamn thing . Told myself I wouldn’t sell prints again so there’s that , cause pics aint art and everyones got a brownie.

what deserves print….. when I was shooting film I felt everything should be printed . well I guess that’s the only way you could show that work then . now its a fleeting flicker on the internet , or its even a quicker flick on the smartphone. Primts are supposed to be viewed. I like them small if the subject matter demands it . Straight prints from negs are absolutely beautiful…. well so are prints from the computer I guess too … Ive made 2 in the past 3 years I was happy with . I went to A&I in LA and worked with them , I knew the paper I knew how I wanted it translated , it is about the same process as the darkroom and is never just hit print…. The difference I guess is the smell of fixer and developer and getting the hands wet in the dark.. I pine to slow down and go back to some of my old pocesses, but for what ? the print ? Id have to know a harder of paper for that , and not me . I need to have a bonfire……..

print promos……. hmmmmmmmm I got some laid out ,,,,,, no-one to send em to . hell who am I kidding Im busier than a one armed paper hanger in an ass kicking contest.

the print
the print
the print

It is always about the print…. its what is left when everything else is gone , till there’s a fire…..

photogravure, that is something special,,,, that lasts.

well if ya read this I’m sorry for spewing…. but its all about the print ….. countless hard drives sitting around , I should just go broke printing and sending to some of the fine people Ive shot … someone might like it , or it’ll keep em warm for that fleeting second as it turns to ashes. either way a gift………

well gotta go chum out some more goodies….

Ill leave ya with a pic just have to find one

You know that feeling when your on your game and sharp as a tack the one that makes you feel as though you could conquer the world . The one that makes you strive for excellence everyday. We’ve all had it at one point, what takes it away/

Never give up never stop.

Back to the drawing board, although other aspects seem to take up all my time. reset the batts and get in the game.. Make it happen cap’n

Been Busy as hell and what do I have to show for it.

A Day I didn’t think would come . The passing of Rod & Custom

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on June 2, 2014 by kustomimaging

Well It came with little warning , its like I lost a friend from elementary school last week . In collage all I wanted to do was shoot for Rod and Custom , it was something I had grown up with and was always there . My professors said I was a fool and should shoot new cars , so I did and had a keen passion for it as well. But it was always in the back of my head. Once in social I started my working apprinicship with one of the best photographers in the car shooting workld, Kevin Necessary . I still hold this guy in the highest regard as a friend and a professional. I was truly on track working with him and many more in the automotive and celebrity world to being what I wanted to be . It only takes drive and talent, right? or maybe knowing the right people too. anyhow one day I got a call from my dear friend Kev Elliot . He said he got me a sit down with the new editor of R&C. it was a dream come true and I could make a few extra bucks in the process. Sat down with him and Rob Fortier for an hour or so to show them my portfolio and talk the talk . By the end of the meeting I had my first assignment with them . Chris Casneys model A coupe. Ill always remember that one as chris said to me , how many years have you worked for rod and custom? I told him it was the first shoot . I think he turned white as a sheet with the lack of confidence. Well endless to say I must have done alright. My next shoot was a cover. Time went on and on and I loved working for the core group. of Rob Aaron and Kev . Fun times I will always look back and smile . It was a greta gig and had lots of fun meeting some of the most amazing people out there in the R&C world.

cheers guys . onwards and upwards.

heres a small collection of the covers I did including my scratch built hotrod that was featured and chris’s coupe
