Day After Session | San Pancho, Mexico

A few days after their wedding Brooke and Travis met up with me in San Pancho and we headed over to the ruins to shoot. I was floored when we pulled up and they were in the last stages of being destroyed. No one had given the town any notice (not unusual for Mexico) and for such a beautiful site to be reduced to rubble is unbelievably depressing. Unfortunately It happens all too often down here. These are the last photos I got before it was razed completely the next day.

All on film. A mixture of Kodak Portra 400 and Kodak Tri-X. I also shot some polaroids during this shoot which you can see here. To see Brooke and Travis’s wedding post go here and for more details about their day you can head to Style Me Pretty.

Suzanne Fontaine - Lovely photos as usual Jill. So sorry to hear the ruins were destroyed. That is really sad.

Dave and I are so looking forward to our turn to have you as our photographer!

FIND Crasher | Vancouver

A few years ago I went to FIND (Film is Not Dead) Seattle with Jonathan Canlas. Unlike other workshops it doesn’t stop at the end of your time there. There is a whole FIND family. I’m lucky to have met some amazing people through this family and some that I consider family of my own (Abegg and JJ I’m talking to you). Not only did I get to meet amazing people and watch the craziness that is Jonathan Canlas, but I also got the opportunity to help organize FIND Mexico last fall. I’m assuming that’s the only reason Jon humors me when I’m in an area where a workshop is taking place and let’s me crash for a bit. It’s happened twice now and it’s oh so much fun. These are my images from FIND Vancouver where I basically shot people in the face with my Contax GA645 and took far to many photos of Catherine’s daughter Madeline. She’s just so damn gorgeous.

If you’re a photographer and want to learn more about film you should check out FIND. If you’re a photographer and want to learn more about business you should definitely check out FIND 2.0 which is happening right here in my hood next April. What could be better than a Mexican vacation and business bootcamp?
