Happy album release day to my beautiful friend Kelsey Waldon! We’ve been working on photos together since 2013. We’ve seen each others triumphs and set backs, and inspired one another with our stubborn attitudes and focus on making good work. Today marks a special day, as Oh Boy Records lifts Kelsey’s art up not just by putting this record out, but by being a support group of caring and passionate friends who are really shining examples of how music industry folks should be. It takes a village for any of us to make our work and progress it. The stellar craftsmanship displayed in the recordings, the advocates who tirelessly work for an artist on the business end of it all, the visual art that becomes associated with a record, and of course - the focus, practice, and conjuring of spirit needed to write the songs into being. Kelsey is one of the strongest and hardest working artists that I know; never bending her standards in exchange for convenience or easy career advancements. When Oh Boy signed her, I knew it was right. We’ve known the hard times and had each of our share of doubters, but today is a beautiful one causing for celebration. Cheers to the future, dear friend. Now - go listen to her record and check her tour dates, yall! <3

Lately we’ve both been so busy with the tools we each hold in our paws here, and our calendar is stacked for the fall. It’s a hell of a good thing when you’re a freelancer, but damn it’s bittersweet knowing you’ll be largely flying solo and immersed in work for large swaths of time. I whole-heartedly embrace that, because I love what I do, and he loves what he does. It comes with the territory for the both of us. Those partings can be tough some times, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. To deeply love your art, and to deeply love your partner, is a sacred and special thing.
Funny story - I once photographed Alec around four or five years back at The Basement here in Nashville. It happened to be his first time ever getting to play with our mutual friend Kelsey Waldon. Fast forwarding to 2019, I could have never envisioned what would happen. Years later, we are both still working for our friend and last week we both worked our respective crafts at the Grand Ole Opry with her. I never will take for granted being able to work alongside a partner in our creative pursuits.; that we grow everyday and push each other to get up and make better work. Love sets you free further than you originally thought you were.
Happy Birthday, Margo! Im forever proud of ya. Keep kickin’ ass and being awesome out there!

This 35mm film is one of the highest ISO films available and is ideal for night shoots, gigs and areas where limited light is available and flash photography is not permitted.
It is a punchy film with high contrasts and in spite of its high exposure is not overly grainy. It is a panchromatic film, which means that whilst it creates black and white film it is sensitive to all lightwaves, giving it a rich texture. This does mean however that it cannot be pushed as far as some monochrome films and account of this should be taken in processing and developing.
By reducing your camera stops it can also be used during the day and is ideal for shaded areas and indoors.
Below you can find an image of the film…

Fresh from the darkroom silver gelatins of Willie Nelson. Starting in 2019 im excited to announce that I’ll have an online print store on my website, where you can click and buy. Prints are dated and signed and will be a mix of both traditional darkroom and archival ink prints. I’m going to have a selection available to purchase before Christmas at a discounted rate, and this one of Willie will be in the mix 😉
