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

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

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

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!

Boatload of cult film!

Recently this article on the nostalgia and cult brand of Kodak popped up on my radar. It’s an older article that talks about how Kodak refused to cannibalize their analog market with digital and that being their undoing. When the headline caught my attention my first thought was that Kodak isn’t a cult brand, it was like Coca Cola to Fuji’s Pepsi. I thought “if you want a cult film brand, try Efke!”

Then I thought, “Hmmm wonder if anyone is selling Efke on eBay?&#8221

365 Film challenge update!

Ok, I’m on a roll! It has not been easy and it’s not always inspiring. I’m a busy guy. I have two active kids, a wife that works full time, I have a part time job and a weekly DJ gig, I’ve been sick, I’ve had to clear snow, BUT I still have managed to do it. Stuffing a film frame or two on top of that has not been easy but it’s been fun.

Day 4: I used the Canon WP1 (portra NC) and shot some desolate, low saturation images of a windswept snowy parking lot.<br
