Coming up with a clever promo is always a fun challenge. Because I travel often shooting trucks around the US with my Mamiya 7II, selecting this landscape image of Death Valley is personal. Once printed, I had it framed making it easy for my clients to hang it in their offices or homes. I bring them to meetings as my “leave behind” piece of art. Judging by the responses, this has been my most successful self promo piece to date. What do you think?
Always one to think of cool new places to shoot big rigs, I take my Mamiya 7II with me on road trips that are scouting missions. I like the look of Kodak Portra 400 and love the simple design of the rangefinder coupled with the size of the 6×7. The excitement of getting the film back from the lab is something I have missed all these years into the digital age. Here is one of many amazing images I captured on that trip last winter!
