Home stretch

I just got back from Billings from photographing Concert for a Cause, a show to aid cancer patients in Billings. While there I did promos for 1090 Club, the only band in the Montana indie scene to be signed. Anyway, I'm neeeearly done with my book! I have about 40 more photos to add and then a little more writing on Concert for a Cause, and it's done. FINALLY! I think the final product will be about 180 pages roughly.
So here are a couple of 1090, a promo from the shoot I did with Acadia and the Asteroid, Deny the Dinosaur at Concert for a Cause, aaaand the new cover! I'm excited. See everyone next week!

New shots for my book

I'm doing a major re-edit on my book to include a couple bands that I left out on accident, and put in some more promo photos and crowd pictures. Today was supposed to be the last show I was going to shoot, but my car blew up on the way to Missoula. Phooey.

Warped Evolution from Sunday 6/24/2007

The Helena Independent Record used my photo and DID NOT CREDIT ME! Instead they credit their STAFF photographer. I am so insanely pissed off right now... UGH! I already left a very curt message for the publisher, and if they don't call me back tomorrow morning, heads are going to roll. UGH!

Next step in photography

Well, another boring summer day at photocheckout. (this is beginning to sound like a journal damn) to counter todays boredom, ANOTHER STEREOGRAPHIC PINHOLE CAMERA!! but this is no ordinary stereographic pinhole camera. This camera is made to compensate macro corrections (similar to crossing your eyes at close objects). Supports the use of two (yes) two 4x5 polaroid backs and sports a chrome targeting system! test shots have yet to be taken. but be prepared. The camera is not fully complete but is functional. completed camera will have stand allowing each camera to rotate. gearing systems will be put in place to assure accurate rotations.
constructed with the help of Camden Hardy.

Prototype MC 0.5

Materials used:
-Matte board
-Black Spray Paint

Stereographic Study no. 2 & no. 3

First successful shot attempt two

Photocheckout summer excitement

Fighting extreme boredom in checkout, I constructed a stereographic pinhole camera out of the back of a legal pad and some foamcore. I then painted it black and chromed it out.
The camera supports 120 roll film (6x6) (well sort of will eventually) and 4x5 Polaroid and film.

For proper effects,
use a stereoscope
(If you have a copy of the album, 10,000 days by Tool
use the album's lenses.)


cross eyes until two images align in center of vision.
if done correctly image should appear to be in THE 3RD DIMENSION.

Lubbock Texas

Just in case "ya'll" were considering moving to Lubbock Texas after graduating, it's pretty much the flattest place I have ever been in my life. But the Buddy Holly museum looked pretty neat. With the exception of Texas Tech, I think this place is the Butte of Texas. It's a ghost town!

A Yellowstone Adventure


These are part of a series for Non-Fiction, the assignment was called "abhorrent" and I find the lengths in which people especially women go to look "beautiful" a little disturbing. But this is hypocritical in some ways, since I'm not immune to all these things myself. I would like to take this idea further, perhaps the more extreme things that people are doing for beauty: surgery, modification, disorders.

Want to show your work in the Exit Gallery?

Hello Everyone - I know that the end of the semester is super busy for everyone, but there are still openings for exhibits in the Exit Gallery. All I need is a CD of the work that you want to exhibit, an artist statement about the work, $15.00 entry fee and a self addressed envelope to SUB room 282B (Aka Student Activities) by May 11th.
This is a great opportunity for students to get their work shown. Even if you are a graduating senior you can still submit work.... If you have any questions contact:
Brooke Tummel
ASMSU Arts and Exhibits Chair
Thanks and I hope to see lots of your submissions!
