Leica M9

Random M9 Shots.... Abbeville locals

I had the chance to take off the afternoon this past week and shoot a little in Abbeville, LA. Everyone was extremely friendly and we had a blast... From a biker with a record shop, some local wrestlers, and just an 92 year old nice man. Such a diverse group of characters. Here are a few... Blessings. Jason

Norway Wedding...

Hilde & Harald had a beautiful wedding just north of Oslo, Norway. I shot the entire wedding with just my Leica, so I thought it would be interesting to post the entire wedding in b&w (other than the first time).

Thanks so much to Riccis Valladares for having me, and the couple and their family for being so welcoming to us. It was an amazing trip.

Blessings. Jason

Day 30 - Creative Shoot

I had the opportunity to schedule a shoot while my good friend Ben Spell was in over the Christmas break. I had been wanting to do something like this for a while, and everything ended up falling into place for this one... Our real hope was just to take the time to set up things and not rush from one shot to the other... Special thanks to Keri & Tory for coming out and modeling for us. Here are just a few of my favorites. Blessings. Jason

Day 28 - Scott

My good friend, and fellow photographer, Scott Simon came in from New Orleans to hang out with me for the day and it really was great being able to spend the time with him. He keeps up a great blog iHeartnola which gives some great insight into New Orleans food, music, culture, and more. If you are looking for good local insider info for New Orleans it is a great website to check out.... As Scott was about to leave for the day I realized how important, and at times lost, the portrait is. Scott was generous enough to sit for me for a portrait and here are 3 frames from that.... I shot a couple with the Hasselblad, but those have to come after I process the film :)

Blessings. Jason

Day 26 - 9th Ward Revisited

This was also shot in the 9th ward in New Orleans in an area where Hurricane Katrina had done some of the most damage in 2005. It was amazing to me to see the contrast of life in the area where this lady was compared to where the gentleman who I posted a couple days ago (Day 12). Blessings Jason.

Day 21 - Snow + Sled = Fun

One of the biggest things that Jen (my wife) was looking forward to more than anything was sledding. It was so cold that after I got off a couple shots I ran into the van and turned up the heat :) I guess I am just really not made for the cold... Blessings. Jason
