  • Cyril Mountain, Seal Beach, Ca. #hasselblad #kodak #portra400. When you open your film back before you wind the film, it has a tendency to mess things up. But sometimes it’s fun. Film processed by @prophotoirvine @filmphotographic #film #shootfilm #filmisnotdead

  • Jon Foreman of Switchfoot. The Greek, Los Angeles, Ca. #canon1v #TriX400 #kodak. I have had the pleasure of working and getting to know these guys these past few months. I really can’t speak highly enough about all of them. Really good group of guys. It’s been a privilege.

  • San Pedro, Ca. #mamiyaRZ67 #fujifilm Came across some scans from a while back. Night photography is very therapeutic. It’s a slow and deliberate process. Good for the head. Film processed by @prophotoirvine @filmphotographic #blackandwhitefilm #film #longexposer

  • Nick 2. Echo Park, Ca. #mamiya7ii #ilfordhp5 #120mm. Don’t smoke, but I love the smell of cigarettes. I think it’s because it reminds me of being 16 and going to Fender’s Ball Room in Long Beach. So many great punk rock shows in the 80’s there. Film processed by @prophotoirvine @filmphotographic #film #shootfilm #blackandwhitefilm

  • Nick, Echo Park, Ca. #mamiya7ii #ilfordhp5 #120mm. Portraits are by far my favorite thing to shoot. Interacting with the subject and pulling things out. I believe a good portrait photographer is 90% psychologist and 10% button pusher. Film processed by @prophotoirvine @filmphotographic #film #shootfilm #losangeles

  • San Pedro, Ca. #mamiya7ii #kodak #porta400. Love San Pedro. This was the first roll I shot with the mamiya 7ii. Haven’t put it down since. Film processed by @prophotoirvine @filmphotographic #kodak #120mm #shootfilm #film

  • Lance Mountain, Seal Beach, Ca. 2015. Plastic bags usually don’t make good toys. But, there is always an exception. #mamiya7ii #TriX400 #kodak. Film processed by @prophotoirvine @filmphotographic #film #keepfilmalive #blackandwhitefilm #120mm #lancemountain #stussy #stussyjapan

  • Stephen Kenn, Pomona, Ca. #leicaM6 #kodak #TriX400. This guy has such an amazing mind and eye for design. Denim, bags or furniture he can do it all. What takes it over the top is how humble of a person he really is. I am legitimately inspired every time we get together.

  • Venice Beach, Ca. 2015. #hasselblad #velvia. This is an out take from a record cover shoot I did a couple of years back. This one did make the cut. Film processed by @prophotoirvine @filmphotographic #film #kodak #E6 #jonforeman #venicebeach
