the HOLGA goes to Upstate New York

it seems like it has been a long time since the Holga got out into the world with me to document travel adventures.   Recently Meredith and I were back East,  visiting family, (so so so much family), eating Veal Parmesan, (deal with it,  hippies),  touring Gustav Stickley's  house,  (he seemed super cool),  touring George Eastman's house, (he seemed like a total dick),  doing the (way way way better) Canadian side of Niagara Falls.   Here's what the Holga thought of our adventure.

just to clarify, (for the uninitiated),  this is film...  not Instagram.

Drink Pink

Recently i organized a collaboration between Union Wine Co. and a few of my favorite local bartenders for a booklet of cocktails that used Union's Underwood Rosé Wine as a component.    I shot all the drinks,  and then those were turned into illustrations for the booklet by the creative folks at Ellaphant in the Room  and designed by  Scout Books.   Keep an eye out for the booklets around town -- the project came out really dope.  The contributing bartenders were Douglas Derrick, Ansel Vickery, Mindy Kukan, Lauren Scott and Jacob Grier.   Here are a few of my favorite shots from the project.

From Alaska with Love

A while ago,  i had the pleasure of meeting some of the amazing people behind Iliana Fish Co.   We did some shooting in the studio,  and then some at one of their pickup locations.  Not sold in stores,  its more of a CSA type deal.    I really couldn't do their story justice in a few words,  so go to their WEBSITE,  watch the video and get in on some of the greatest sustainably caught wild red salmon on Earth!
