On Assignment

In the ATL with the HOME crew and a welcome onboard to Tara McCarthy, the new Art Director of Atlanta Magazine's HOME.
Looks a bit dark out today with intermittent showers forecasted- going to require some magic tricks to get the shots.

HOLGA


On the grounds of
Chateau de la Foltiere,
Le Chatellier, France




















Shot on a HOLGA 120S camera (cheap plastic body, plastic lens) with Ilford HP5 Plus, 120 roll, 400 ISO Black and White film.
A well-known camera and a light leaking mess, it does produce amazing images if you know how to operate it (and tape the body to minimize the leaks).
Notice the beautiful lens distortion at the bottom edges.

FIELD TRIP! WRAPPED

Over the last three years we have traveled all over Georgia, producing 51 short films called "Field Trip!" on a wide range of farm subjects specific to organic farming in Georgia, with each episode focusing on a particular farm how-to, trick, tip, or hack.

We filmed on many beautiful farms and met a diverse cross section of incredible farmers who opened their doors and gave their valuable time to us. We also heard many stories, trudged through muddy fields, faced a herd of cows, technical problems, bees, weather, and had some great times and ate many fine meals with this outstanding group.

After 51 episodes, we look back and wish to thank all the farmers who stepped in front of our cameras and shared their knowledge. Without you this project would not be what it is.

Thanks to Jonathan Tescher and Alice Rolls at Georgia Organics for bringing us on this project and also to Donn Cooper for letting us take it to the limit.
Thanks to the United States Department of Agriculture and National Institute of Food and Agriculture for the generous grant that made this production possible.
Special kudos to Yoram Benz for the opening animation sequence.


Cheers all,
Christine+Owen

Watch all 51 episodes of FIELD TRIP!

Just Shoot It!

On assignment, on the road, on location; there are so many stories from photo shoots- like what went on and how it all came down to get that shot.
Like the time on the beach shooting garden furniture and the wind kept blowing the cushions, pillows and umbrellas into the sea.  Or that time with the dog- (which time- which dog?).  Did we mention insects?
Or Memphis for VW?
Wisconsin with the NY model, the horses, the winter storm coming in?
Los Angeles and 30 set-ups in a day?
Flying in a 1946 Piper Cub?
On the roof of the Hyatt Regency, Louisville KY for TERRA FIRMA?
And speaking of rooftop shoots- how about on the roof of the Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel?

























Never, ever, a dull moment... and maybe that's part of the reason we love it.
