What is this madness, Austin? Well, here’s what it’s all about… I take photographs on direct positive paper and develop them immediately in a portable darkroom I've built using a light tight hood attached to the inside of a pelican case. I originally started this to bring large format photography with me while I traveled across the globe. After completing the first version of my darkroom, I began testing it with friends in my backyard. During those sessions, I was blown away and humbled by the level of excitement I received. What I originally though would be just a way to shoot and develop on the road, quickly turned into an instrument to engage and educate people through one of the most basic photographic processes.
What makes this process special to me is not just the incredibly beautiful "look" of each image, but the fact that once the photo is developed, it is a one of a kind image. I do not make duplicates of the images I take.
I am available for private portrait sessions, weddings, corporate events, parties, or any other event you want to document! Please use the contact page to reach out for more information, pricing, and availability.
