Phila mass turb

Just like the Philadelphia Mass Turbulence of 1947

Books oddly ordered and scattered about a room in Detroit’s Old Cass Tech High School building. The doors at this 4000 student capacity building were locked in 2006, contents and all. In the rust belt locked doors never stay locked for long.

A pretty good sized group of film photographers went on this trip back in 2009. Sadly the building was razed in 2011. When I was there it was like an 8 story Call of Duty map or something. There read more

Lushes LaMoan is a burlesque dancer and founder of a Detroit burlesque troop. I saw her preform recently at a farewell party for some good friends. For me this was the first time I’ve ever seen burlesque done to a live jazz band! Really cool time.

Saginaw Art Museum Gardens 2016

Saginaw Art Museum Gardens

The Saginaw Art Museum is a really unique place in Saginaw, Michigan. It’s run by a handful of dedicated individuals who truly believing in bring art to the public and preserving it for future generations. I used to work part time here and still help out with exhibit prep as needed. The gardens are maintained by a team of volunteers and maintain the Italianate tradition as close as possible to the original garden from the early 1900s.


I believe this was shot with the Konica BigMini with read more

The Farewell Party!

There’s a couple that’s been going to Photostock since about 2009 that I befriended over the years. I didn’t see them often, but we followed each other on Facebook and other sites. We met up occasionally outside of Photostock to do some urban exploration in Detroit. They were friends I saw a few times a year. They are film Photographers that usually read more

Big “Oops!” with Svema MZ-3

When you’re shooting oddball films it’s always good to test before you go out and try to execute a plan. Well I didn’t and it bit me in the butt a bit. I had this plan to take some FFP Store Svema MZ-3 low iso film out to the beach, slap some filters on it and take some longer exposure images where people that are moving turn into smears or ghosts. Stuff that stays still looks fine. read more

Jeff Blandford

Jeff Blandford’s Exhibit at the Saginaw Art Museum

Jeff Blandford is a ceramicist with an eye for the unusual. While he’s certainly know for throwing some very large works, I was intrigued by th differentness of his work and the creative way it was displayed. I took my grandfather’s Rollei T3 (F3.5) and a tripod to The Saginaw Art Museum and shot a roll of Tri-X 400 film. It’s not often something this enigmatic comes to town and I’m really glad I was able to catch it!
