23rd August 2011

My portfolio has been down for the month. It was a sad and stressfull month over at Oh Chloe HQ.  Actually not so sad. I’m off topicIts back up! is back up and functioning as my portfolio.

Do you like how it looks?

Do you hate how it looks?

Do you think theres any photos I should add to it?

Is it running too slow?

Feel free to leave a comment or email me:

I also have a Facebook page, if you’re a supporter of my photography then like me? Add me? become a fan of me?

I obviously still have a bit to learn about this page-less book.

A Warped Photo Review

10th August 2011

This is my friend Jay! Jay plays drums in a band called Against Me!, who are currently touring with a slightly eclectic bundle of other bands on this years Warped Tour. During a week where AM! was not on the bill and Jay was home from tour, Warped set up camp in Oceanport, NJ. And so, we went

I hadn’t been to a Warped Tour since the BMX aspect of it was still pretty relevant and Snapcase was still a band. We got there and reading the lineup, I had only, at most, heard of a small handful of bands on the list. Jay quickly became not only my tour guide around this portable camp site, but he was also pretty much my walking Wikipedia. Informing me of these bands origins, how long they’ve been around, what kind of crowd they drew, ect.

I took photos of my day as a fly on the Monster sponsored can of water. I was really excited to be able to

  • shoot bands in a very brightly lit, camera friendly setting
  • seeing kids play rock, paper, scissors to settle a fight in the middle of a pit
  • and to be introduced to new music that I would never listen to, otherwise.
Dear Owner of this car,
I love you.

There were nearly 50 teenagers who had set up camp across a fence, to stare at rows of tour buses. Inside one of these buses,  they would probably find half the crew of The Devil Wears Prada gluing together Warhammer armies and listening to the Jane Doe album before their set. Apparently, this is a new form of meditation for them.
A Day To Remember, had the most ridiculous production  I had ever seen. They define a big headed band. Literaly. A 6 foot inflatable version of each of their heads was mounted up above the stage as they synchronized almost every motion they made. I thought this was a bit overboard, but after seeing the layers of photographers, event staff, and nearly every single Warped Tour attendee going apeshit, I soon figured out that I was the minority.

Lucero was probably one of the bands that was the most unique, style wise, of anyone on the line up. Like true southerners, they walked onto the stage barefoot, smoked cigarettes throughout their set, and made statements like “We may not be the best band here, but we sure are the drunkest”

I had a lot of fun shooting The Devil Wears Prada. From start to finish, they had the most energy of any of the bands I saw that day.

This band Sharks, was so good and played to this tiny row of kids. I’m really interested to see how different their crowd is going to be like once the start their tour with Title Fight in October.

Can someone explain the neon paint thing to me? I couldn’t find anything that indicated that there was a place where you could GET this shit smeared onto you. There were also very few guys who had it on them. This leads me to believe that it was nothing but an indication of where a girl was inappropriately touched, that day.

Judging how hot it is outside by ice cream and not thermometer.

when friends walk their bike in order to stroll with you

hair so blonde, it blends with walls

Roaming around air conditioned furniture stores and making myself at home on couches that belong to no one.

Slushie beverages!making silly faces

walking silly walks

pups with beards!

insects that look like belly button lint

Tea loving tee-shirts!

Magazine shops. I hope they exist forever.
Ice coffee in individual lager bottles!

always moving onto better things

people who take a love for pizza very seriously

The color green

movies in the park

plays on words

comfy beds with white linens becoming a spirt animal. I think mine would be a tamagotchi.

Shops that look like someones giant closet

when work can be done shoeless in a park

when things look much worse than they actually are

seeing Torche play live. Torche rules.

Just ask Jay!

or this interesting conservative!

Celling Myself Short

5th July 2011

I’ve found that I usually carry 3 cameras with me at all times.

  • a DSLR
  • Polaroid
  • iPhone

I hate to say it, but sometimes my phone (with the help of Instagram) takes some pretty decent photos. Sure, they all capture a moment in a different way. They all convey a different feeling, when I look back on the moment. A shot from my DSLR makes every moment seem dramatic and rich. On the other hand, a polaroid makes a moment more personal and difficult to convey in the straight forward way that my DSLR can.

The photos from my iPhone are unique. They display an image in a way that is new and different and so easy to manipulate without very much effort at all. Its the quickest camera to whip out and also the least intrusive. People don’t tense up in front of a cell phone the way they do a camera. And beyond that, its sometimes fun to be able to see what I’m about to take a photo of without pressing my eye against a view finder.

I have a growing archive of cell phone photos that remind me of a moment that would otherwise be lost in my memory of a larger picture of the day or week or month. I feel like, good or bad, these little things in life usually keep us moving forward. Heres some cell phone images that I’ve taken that have done just that, through out the month of June.

First row: 1) Passing a closed down business on my way to work 2) cutting lumber inside of an room mean wearing a mask to stop me from inhaling wood particles. Thats right, lung infesting termites. Go fuck yourselves 3) After months of trying to hunt down the Lake Street Creamery ice cream truck, I finally got to try donut ice cream…followed directly by the California Zephyr ice cream which I liked better. Don’t judge me. I was a depressed girl! A fat depressed girl.

Second row: 1) After seeing Scribes art opening at 1988 Gallery I woke up to find this little momento tagged on the inside of my cigarette pack 2) One of my favorite things about Oaks coffee, is their blank cups. AJ drew this gem for me 3) Smo is an amazing animator who, while visiting me in Los Angeles, took a tour of his companies west coast studio, Titmouse.

Third Row: 1) AJ and I woke up at an ungodly hour and began to walk around Los Angeles making a stop into California Doughnuts. Worst coffee ever. If you urinate in it, it may be bearable, though. 2) There was about 2 days where my life looked this organized. 3) Does this really need an explanation? Because I don’t have one for it.

First row: 1) Matt and I went to Disney. He taught me that if I stopped moving out of the way for people, that they will usually move out of the way for me! This theory excludes small children. 2) A week full of taking the train in Los Angeles was fine, until my New York based boss mentioned “Isn’t it strange that they would build an underground system in a place prone to earthquakes?” 3) We were all trapped in a box on a different coast

Second Row: 1) aj. swingers. yes. 2) There was a professional leg waxing session in my kitchen. 3) Lurking on my friend as he did an interview before a show

Third row: 1) Jim drew himself, Gum, Rachel, and I during a debate about the Robocop statues significance on Detroits tourism. Serious issues, as always 2) Rachel and I finally made it to the Fairfax Trading Post after months of failed planing 3) Smo drooling coffee from inside Iron Man
