Personal Project - Lehi & the twins







These 2 girls are the reason we moved to Lehi. We were living in a townhome in Orem that I foolishly believed we'd be in for at least a decade. We found out we were having twins and we were out. We've been in Lehi since April 2005 and have no intentions of moving. These are shots of Ila & Ruby around Lehi. Don't ask what camera it is as the last thing we need is another random camera's price skyrocketing.

4 couples in 1 hour - Teaching @ BYU













Shot during my class at BYU. Showing the kids how I do "engagements". All shot on beautiful BYU campus, but shot strategically so you could not tell. Did it work? You tell me.

A big thank you to the couples who came out and braved the cold. And a bigger thank you to Alexis Dyer for finding such rad people on such short notice.

Kids in the neighborhood - Mamiya RZ Pro II








At any given time during the summer, there are no less than 15 kids on my street playing together, my kids included. I love where I live, and these kids are great. I've wanted to take the last photo in the post for a LONG time. I love this kid's look.

Instagram has nothin on this stuff...



















I, like most people, love shooting on Instagram. It is fast, it is simple, and more importantly, it is the camera I have with me, my iPhone. But, there is something lacking in my instagram photos that show up on film. And as much as I shoot my iPhone, I shoot quite a bit more with my real cameras. Instagram is awesome. Hands down it is awesome. But it is not as awesome as the images I get out of my real film cameras.

Webelos Den Leader - FUJI FP-3000B












So, I recently got asked to be a Webelos den leader. And yes, it is AWESOME. These are boys about to advance into Boy Scouts. 10 yrs old and well, full of, LIFE :).

I will admit, a lot of the out of focus photos were taken by the scouts themselves as I was in charge of the activity and it was a way for all of them to get to know me :).

And for you techy geeks wondering how i did these diptychs and what format it is, it was shot on my new toy. A polaroid back for my Mamiya RZ Pro II. It is an Arca Swiss back and it allows you to take 2 photos on one sheet of film. Using the complete full frame. Good luck finding one. I bought mine for a MINT...
