Kids, Bechtle, and Commercial Photography















The images from this project are getting close to done, so I thought I'd better post some before everyone logged off for the holidays. Here are some, but more to come....they are all so far away by design that you may want to click them to see'em big. Read here and here about the process. Post production on this by Laura Johnston here in SF.

Maze With Frog Sticker And Tape
























Over the past 9 days my inner ear was messed up: things seemed one sided, my balance seemed off and conversations were only partially heard...I never heard the whole thing and had to make up the rest. It felt like a break from things, a way to work only 1/2 time...only half the input was coming in.

m
My son got some magic markers and made a maze last night. Right then it all made sense.

Commercial Break




Nice looking spread above in Outside Magazine this month. Not a typical shot that I would do....it is always hard for me when the subject won't stand still. Thankfully we have autofocus, post production, and 1600 everything. Couple more of the out takes from the Jon Olsson shoot below as well...click on these things to see them big.

What about my book? Why can't I get in on this sell-a -thon?

Sex Machines: Photographs and Interviews by Timothy Archibald, published by Process.

Hilarious, mind-blowing and weirdly inspirational, Sex Machines lifts the garage door on a secret world of suburban lust. If Popular Mechanics had done an Alfred Kinsey issue, it might have looked like this. Destined to be a classic.— Jerry Stahl, author of Permanent Midnight.

Reference Points




















w
Working with the retoucher on the kids and cars images and I realized I never really provided her with the reference points needed to get into the groove of the palette of this project. Shannon Amos defined it with the clothing...and the cars had their own qualities of course. I dug up a bunch of things to use as reference points and they looked kinda curious all collected here, so I thought I'd share. I'm still looking for the dead on 1970's red though...if any one has it, send it over, please.
