Ireland on Film

Ireland on Film

January 08, 2019

I started my photography by shooting film before I was a teenager.  The analog process continues to this day because there's something about its execution, its developments, and its aesthetic that captures the hearts of thousands of people across the globe.  My affinity for film photography remains despite my heavily digital workflow.  I even keep an "emergency" film camera in my car at all times.

But I still don't shoot film terribly often, so one 35mm roll of 36 exposures can last me an entire year.  When I finally send a few rolls in to get developed it can be a bit of a surprise to see what comes back!  The start of one roll might have been from the first snowfall the previous year, with a few summer beach frames mixed in, finished up with an autumn walk in the woods.  It's always a bit of a gamble and always fun to finally scan into the computer.

I took my medium format Mamiya to Ireland this autumn, and for once I actually shot an entire roll within a few days.  The film came back and absolutely captured the overcast historic feel that we had personally experienced walking the streets of Ennistimon and Galway.  Perhaps my favorites are several shots from atop the Cliffs of Moher on a particularly windy day.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

Board Portraits // Experiments

I've been wanting to shoot more portraits lately, but in combination with the surf community that I've been so involved with the past year.  My good friend, Kevin Tanner, behind Soudnings Surf Co creates some gorgeous handcrafted boards.  He does all his own shaping, resin work, and glassing, and I wanted to photograph some beautiful boards to highlight his craftsmanship as well as portraits of my friends who ride them.  I decided to do board portraits.

A lot of us enjoy the warm weather, but a select few of us still enjoy (or perhaps tolerate) the cold weather.  And nothing quite says winter like a fresh snowfall!  On the rare occasion Rhode Island experiences more than one inch of snow while there's swell in the water, you can find a select few of dedicated riders on the shore eager to have a snow session.

Some days I just don't feel like swimming.  Some days I don't feel like shooting with a 7lb telephoto setup on the beach.  Those days are perfectly suited for drone shots, should the wind be accommodating enough.  

I've only had a couple drone flights this winter, one during a sunny but cold morning at the beach, and a second during a slightly windier day at Point Judith lighthouse. It's always a refreshing perspective!
