Our final Rooftop Concert of 2014 was perfect. Oh, sure, there were some hitches along the way and leading up to the show things didn’t go quite as planned. But by 7pm when Cjane and I walked on stage to make a few announcements and thank some sponsors, it couldn’t have been more perfect. Great weather, massive crowd turnout, and the best bands.

Here’s what Friday night looked like, with The Blue Aces, Fictionist, and Neon Trees.

Portrait of a town: Gilmer Texas

by justin on September 18, 2014

in Travel

In May I flew to Dallas. I rented a car, drove three hours to the East, then stopped in a tiny little town called Gilmer, Texas. It’s beautiful, there and I’d go back in a heartbeat. My friend Lauren grew up in Gilmer. So did her father. So did her grandfather. And since she doesn’t live there anymore and most likely won’t move back, she wanted me to visit that place and make a portrait of her town. She wanted pictures of all the places that were part of her childhood, youth, and growing up years.

She grew up outside of town. Her folks have a ranch, there. When I was asking her father about the size of the ranch, he said “You don’t need to own all the land. Just the land on either side of you.” Ah, Texas.

In addition to the pictures of Gilmer, she wanted family portraits taken. She wanted portraits of her grandparents before it was too late. And, she wanted pictures of her son, there, too. Four generations in that same meaningful spot.

Here’s Lauren’s town. This is Gilmer, Texas and the surrounding area.

Here’s what Lauren had to say when she got the pictures back:
When I first got the photos from the project I was blown away. I already knew I loved your work from working together so many times before, but the way you captured the details that may seem meaningless to an out of towner, and the details that have become mundane to those that see them every day, I was overjoyed. It was more than what I ever wanted. Preserving not only memories, but the feelings that go with them is what I wanted, and exactly what you made happen. 

 

What would you like documented in an artful, careful and skillful way?
Last year, I did a similar project in Ottumwa, Iowa. These two projects have been some of the most satisfying work I’ve ever done. And I would love to do more of these kinds of things. So, if you’d like a portrait of your town, or have a similar project in mind, I’d love to talk further and discuss how I can help. Both of these town portraits were two day shoots. The cost is similar to my wedding pricing and clients cover all travel costs.

Julie makes me feel so old in the nicest way. She’s got all kinds of energy and knows about all the things people in their twenties know and talk about. And she’s funny. And I’ve known here now for about 5 years. And I like it when shes stops by the studio.

New York Portait Photography

in friends, Music

Here’s Bianca and Joseph Merkley, photographed in their Bronx neighborhood.

New York Portrait Photography New York Portrait Photography New York Portrait Photography New York Portrait Photography New York Portrait Photography New York Portrait Photography

Bianca is a true artist. She’s a singer and songwriter and don’t stand up while listening to her sing, because you’ll hear that voice, your knees will buckle and you may hit your head on the coffee table as you stumble to the ground. Her songs, her voice, really pack a punch.  Bianca was just in Utah recording new music at June Audio. I can’t wait to hear the new songs.

 

These pictures were taken near their home in the Bronx, New York, in June 2014. Interested in being photographed in New York City? I’ll be back in September and will have opening for only 4 portrait sessions while I’m there. September 22, 23, or 24. Email me and I’ll give you all the details. Now, every time I go to New York and do some portrait sessions, the spots always fill up. So don’t wait another minute. Let me know if you’re interested and we’ll line something up.

Meet Tia. She’s working as my assistant when I photograph weddings and some times she’s nice enough to come to the studio to be photographed, too. Tia was one of my students at UVU in 2013 and shortly after that, started working for me. I just can’t say enough about how much she contributes to the business and Amy and I are grateful for all she does for us.

I met Betty and Andrew in 2008. Andrew came to be photographed at the studio. Betty was with him. I told them if they ever got married, I wanted to photograph their wedding. I mean, they’re so cool, both of them, what photographer wouldn’t want to? Well, six years later, nearly to the day I met them, they did, indeed get hitched. And I was there to photograph the happy day. And I’m so grateful. They filled their day with meaningful and memorable symbols and traditions.

What a couple. What a day. And now, meet Betty and Andrew.

Alt Summit 2014: A Visual Review

by justin on June 27, 2014

in bloggers, Events

For the previous 2 years, the summer version of Alt Summit has been in New York City and San Franciso. This year, however, it took place in Salt Lake, where the winter version has been going on for years. I love photographing this conference, and once again, had a fantastic time. Here’s a visual summary of what things looked like this year.

Here’s Brooke Dennis. (Image below) She and I photograph the conference together. Working with her is one of the best things about shooting Alt. Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit

She included this picture in her blog post about coming to Salt Lake. Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit

I was in a room, taking pictures of her with a few people, like Gabby (shown above), Alt co-founder, and some other folks. Then Amy came in the room to bring me my camera bag, which I had left in the ballroom. Martha saw her with the baby, and said, “I want a picture with the baby”. So, that’s how this picture happened.Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design SummitAlt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design SummitAlt Design Summit

 

So, that’s that. A great week. If you’ve ever thought about attending Alt Design Summit, I’ve been to every one in Salt Lake and the two in New York and I can tell you that it’s totally worth being there.

It’s possible I’m the reason they’re getting married. Alayne came to my studio last year and wanted me to do a portrait of her. Something she could use online. We had a good time taking pictures and she used one for one of her profile pictures here and there. Turns out, that lovely picture caught the attention of Greg, they met, fell in love, and now they are getting married. I take all the credit. Well, I take some of the credit. Ok, I think it’s cute and don’t take any of the credit.

Meet Alayne and Greg. Engaged, now, and soon to be wed. I’ll be there to photograph the happy day.

Family Portraits in Texas

On a sunny afternoon in late April, on a Ft. Worth street that makes you want to make a movie about a perfect Texas neighborhood, I drove up to Grace’s house. The kids answered the door. Happy, well-behaved, inquisitive. I really wish this family lived in Utah so Amy and I could see them more often.

Meet the Mitchell family.
