B&W photographer near Center Camp

Postby GuinivereElise » Fri Oct 08, 2004 9:11 am

(Hey, sorry for the cross-post, but I'm desperate:)

I'm trying to locate the name and/or website of the photographer that was taking pictures near centercamp... He had a tent set up, and was taking black and whites of anyone who wanted to wait in line for them. He also had a bunch up on display, outside the tent. Some were erotic in nature, others were not.

If anyone knows who he is or how I can find him, I'd greatly appreciate the help...

thanks so much,

Guinivere

Have you tried looking at the map of center camp and figuring out which camp it is, then looking it up on the themecamp webpage?

If I recall correctly he was at about 10:00 center camp. And the theme camp webpage generally lists either an email, a webpage or both for contact info of any registered theme camp, and clearly you'd have to be registered to be in Center camp.

Ivy, you are officially a genius in my book. Thanks for the advise. It took a while, but I found exactly what I was looking for. Thank you, thank you.

big squishy hugs,

Glad I could help. I remember that camp becuase I really wanted to get my picture taken. A friend of mine suggested we go together and I really wanted to say "Yes," but instead, I said "maybe." I figured there was always more time and we could get back to it. I've been regretting that ever since.

Ivy,

I wanted to get some done the SECOND I saw it... but ended up not getting there until Saturday. We waited in line for about 2 hours, but it was totally worth every second. The photos are absolutely gorgeous. I'm sure he'll be there next year!

Thanks again,
GuinivereElise

GE

Were the images he was shooting like this one below? If so and if you find out who he is please post his name or contact details. We had this great portrait taken of us in 2000, i'd love to get a print made. I had his name scrawled on napkin when handed us the polaroids, but that's long gone now... we never found it once we returned home.

BTW, did you ever work for a girl game company in the SF area? The image in your avatar (assuming that's you) looks really familiar.

Hmmm.

Regardless, here's what I found (again, thanks to Ivy)

O. Now I can see it. Yes, those types of photos. Great stuff, eh?

And no, I've never actually been to CA, save the little corner we drove through to get to the Burn. So, it must not have been me. (But my avatar is!)

Good luck. I read in an article that, because John does all of his own developing, he's something like a year behind in the printing. I'd love to see it, if you're down for showing me...

I think that's the same photographer. I'll shoot him an email with that image above. Not sure why you can't see it, but if it's a red x you can right click on it to get the properties for the image, then copy and past the url into a browser.


Thanks for the link and out of curiosity, did you work for a bay area game company in the late 90's?

Posts must've crossed... I'm sure it's the same photographer.

Your twin worked for Purple Moon; alas time's been unkind to my addled gray glob and I can't remember her name.

Did you get a polaroid of your portrait?

ahh, crossed posts....

yep.

Yepper, got a polaroid. He does such amazing work.

I've been hearing lately about a lot of my twins roaming about....

maybe we were all septuplets, separated at birth...

I just sent John email asking if he can get a print of our image. That would be a nice anniversary present for my wifey-poo. Were you solo or accompanied in your portrait?

A new playa friend and I were together in the photo...

good stuff, all around. And tons of fun.

I think that's a great anniversary present!
