One last post about the photo book! Pre-orders close Monday morning! And I think after that, I’ll probably take a break from posting to Instagram for a week or so. (I’ll be headed to Yellowstone area for a part of that time, anyway.) . Thanks so much for the support on this project! People wanting my photography in their homes and on their shelves is mind blowing and amazing to me. So so cool. Thank you. ❤️
Just passed 180% funded on my photo book today. Wow. 🥺 There’s still time to pre-order a copy! . Signed books start at $59, or you can get a PDF copy for $14. Prints are also available! All @ the link in my bio!
Another sneak peek into my photo book, “Between Places,” featuring a few shots from Monument Valley. 3 days left to pre-order a copy! Link in my bio!
Thinking about Astoria. Anyone down for a road trip? #OutOfOliversWindow
I figured, just for once, why don’t I post a picture to Instagram that I don’t like? 🤷♂️ . I was trying to take pictures of this horse and then a couple of kids came along with a bag of carrots. (Which made for a much better scene, I think!) I was SO excited about this shot right after I took it. Sure, it’s kinda weird that I’m taking pictures of strangers’ kids, but 😅 it’s documenting a cool moment in time, idk. . But. That said. I’m not a huge fan of how this turned out. I guess I remembered it differently in my head. But if I were to re-take this same photo, I would crouch down and take it eye-level with the kids or lower. And probably have the horse and kids fill the frame a little more. . So while the photo itself was disappointing, I did actually learn a lot from it. And the #Portra800 colors still turned out great.
A fiery little light leak made its way into this shot somehow. The unpredictability of film is part of the fun (and frustration sometimes haha) #portra800
Lonely in the parking lot 🚗 #WhenCarsMatchPlaces #NotOliversCar
The color palette of a western. #Portra800
I’ve really enjoyed walking around my neighborhood to take pictures. It’s a good reminder to me that faraway places aren’t the only places where I can take pictures I enjoy.
Sunset in suburbia, (looking the other way.) . This is the last photo I took before a kind police officer informed me that someone had “called the cops on me” for wandering the neighborhood with a camera or two 😂
A recent selfie with a duck 🦆🤳
Petal to the metal 🌸 . The word “cinematic” gets thrown around a lot but something about this shot really does feel kinda... ya know... cinematic. . #NotOliversCar
Caves are cool.
A rare photo of me! +3 more photos of this same location, taken on different days using different cameras (& 2 different film stocks). Idk what it is about this spot around 8:10-8:20pm but the light hits so well and it just has this nostalgic summer feel. I went out today to take a picture of me there. . I really like how the shadows in each of these pictures are in slightly different places. (On the street signs and light post, etc.) . Nerdy stuff: - Self-portrait & photo #4 are digital taken on my Olympus EM10, w/ a 25mm lens. (A 50mm equivalent bc #micro43) - Photo 2 taken on a Pentax K1000 w/ a 50mm lens, using Seattle Film Works 200 film that expired in 1998. - Photo 3 taken on my Canon TX using Portra 800 and a 35mm lens. Portra 800 has my favorite colors I think.
I got 3 rolls of film back today. 👀 They included this second photo. I kinda like the fence in the foreground of the film shot, but I like the blue water and cooler feel of the digital image better.
Happy to announce that my photo book “Between Places” reached its Kickstarter funding goal last night! It’s officially happening!! . If you want to pre-order a copy, you still can at the link in my bio! You can also order prints and even a PDF copy of the book! . Also, as a heads up, your card won’t be charged until June 1st when the Kickstarter campaign ends! . Thanks so much for all the support already!!
They never said the apocalypse would look like this.
Make a wish 💨
It’s been a while since my last waterfall picture. (I had to remedy that real quick.)
Taking a break from the photo book posts to share a quick row of pictures I took around a fenced-off playground lately. Kind of a strange sight to see. 🚧
Shadows 👥 and hot air balloons 🎈 . (Another preview of my photo book, “Between Places”) . Pre-orders on Kickstarter are currently 44% funded! (As of the time of me writing this on day 3, anyway!) That is... actually AMAZING 😭 and I’m super thankful for everyone who has helped spread the word and back the project! Thank you, thank you, thank you! . Fun fact: all of the photos in the book were shot on an Olympus EM10. (Using a combination of the kit lens, a 45mm 1.8, and a 25mm 1.7 for the nerds.) I’ve been super happy with this camera. It’s done me well! I’m excited for you to see more of these pictures in print. It’s such a great way to experience photography.
Another sneak peek of my photo book! It’s got a good mix of retro/city/street scenes and natural landscapes. I feel like this page reflects that pretty well! . You can pre-order a copy (or prints!) at the link in my bio until June 1st!
My first photo book is available for pre-order!! Here’s a sneak peek of one of my favorite photos and pages in the book. . Between Places is a 140-page collection of photographs taken on the journey—between places. From road trips and cruise ships to hill tops and rest stops, Between Places documents some of my favorite scenes from the last few years as seen through car windows and camera lenses. . The link to the Kickstarter/pre-order page is in my bio! In addition to copies of the book, you can also purchase photo prints to help fund the initial print run. . This is gonna look real nice on your coffee table. Just saying :)
The light in this picture makes me happy :) Jesus Christ makes me happy :) lots of things making me happy lately :)
I went for a photo walk around my neighborhood this week. “Golden Hour” may have only lasted like 20 minutes... but it did look great! 😍 #NotOliversCar
More of #OutOfOliversWindow, this time #onfilm. 🌵
🏜 This is seriously one of my favorite pictures I’ve ever taken... and it was taken in the back seat of a moving car. (I have a whole hashtag for that actually. #OutOfOliversWindow) . This is also another photo included in my upcoming photo book! 🕺🏼 I’m pretty excitedddd 🎉
Ice cream dreams 💭🍦
So I’ve been working on a photo book, ya know? And this is one of the pictures in there. More sneak peeks and info coming soon. 😏 #outofoliverswindow
Once upon a time on a back country dirt road.
Leaving the lights on. Another photo from my back yard, this time @toddhido_ style. . I was actually just trying to take a picture of this house illuminated as it was by the full moon. It looked like a spotlight almost. A few tries in, that corner light turned on. (At like 12:30am mind you.) I got an exposure or two down and then it turned off. Thanks for making this picture that much better, neighbor.
I’ve started taking pictures in my backyard. Remember when our only problems were losing balls and frisbees over the neighbor’s fence?
Swipe to see behind the scenes (aka my head stuck in a rock)
Heaven and earth collide (This was taken out of the window of a moving car, believe it or not)
Finished another semester of school! This one was crazy obviously. Shoutout to this old neon theatre sign for the encouragement. 📉💯
Parking garage happenings 💿
These will be the last few film photos from Arizona for now. I need to figure out a good way to share more of them. I have a lot of my film work up on my website, but maybe I’ll put together like zine or something. I’ve definitely fallen in love with seeing photos in print.
From moodier days. Which one do you like best?? 1 or 2?
Hey, I got some lens flare for ya
Shoutout to these red bushes for looking awesome, and for @jayrobinson_music for sounding awesome. (And, well, also looking awesome!)
Feeling kinda like these boats tbh #portra400
I was going through old photos and found this one of @keileerich that I had totally forgotten about. It feels like summer and I love it.
Explored more of Idaho today. I love this state. But anyway, here’s an unrelated film photo from Utah. 😂
“Purple Mountain Majesty” makes a whole lot more sense in Utah. (Also, forget about brand loyalty.)
