Over spring break I traveled up to San Francisco to assist the AMAZING Mr. Mastin at a wedding. I was lucky enough to be blessed with being allowed to be a part of this amazing couple’s special day, and do what I love doing (AND shoot 100% film)! As a little background behind this day, before this, I had never even attended a wedding, so going to this one and being such a large part of it was really something unique. It gave me a lot of time to think about my own photography and how superficial the fashion world can get if you aren’t careful. I realized as I was shooting this wedding that every time I took my eye away from my SLR’s viewfinder, I had this stupid grin on my face. I was just so happy to be where I was. Content, one might say. Anyways, my selection process is definitely not as refined for this wedding stuff as it is for fashion so please excuse my giant wave of images!
I shot all of my images with my Canon ELAN II and Kodak Portra 400.
Had a chance to shoot with the amazingly gorgeous Lindsay while I was up staying with my friend Connor in Washington over this past winter break. I’ve realized that I have started to over think my work a bit. I have done a pretty drastic re-evaluation of my work over the past week or two and have come across some new ideas. I’m pretty excited to see these projects start to come together.

Hello, in case you are new here, I’m Jack. In case you haven’t met me, I’m a huge goofball. However, I haven’t let that stop me from trying to move up in a world where professionalism reigns. I am still new to and am by no means well known in the fashion world, but I have picked up a few very important bits of knowledge about the fashion industry that I am asked about quite frequently. One of these things is shooting agency models. Please don’t take this post as me being cocky–these are just things that I wish I knew
Quite often, I have friends of mine come to me, desperately wanting to advance their work, but not really having the know-how on where to go from just shooting their good looking friends. That’s where agency shooting comes in. I’m not too good at writing these things so I am just going to go ahead and put my thoughts on the page and then if you are able to follow, great, if not, you clearly don’t have ADD. (I’ll probably put a numbered list at the end of the post with the basic rundown on what has been said).
I wish that, coming into the fashion world the way I did, I had people telling me the information that I know now. There are so many little nuances that agencies and the fashion world require for your work to be considered “up to par”. I hope this information is useful and just know that this is my method, I know no other method as I have stumbled across all this information completely through my own experiences.
