I still shoot film, although not nearly as often as I should. Like so many of my photographer friends, I have an entire shelf of my refrigerator dedicated to my collection of film stock. On those weeks when I’m spending more time answering emails and phone calls than shooting, or when the thrilling prospect of taxes is rearing its head; that’s when I feel the urge to pick up one of my manual cameras and go for a walk. I accumulate mystery rolls of film, and don’t get down to Photoworks very often to drop off the results for processing. But when I do, it’s always a delight to see the results.
All images shot in San Francisco on Kodak Portra (don’t recall the ISO, probably 400), with a Canon AE-1 50mm 1.4.

Staff promo photo and headshot sessions don’t have to be stuffy, the wonderful folks at Worldreader brought props!
All the feather boas and silly glasses can’t distract from how incredibly cool this non-profit group is, they’re bringing free e-readers and books to over nine countries in Africa and serve many people more through their mobile app. Literacy is the first hurdle for so many people to overcome and I was really impressed by the passion and enthusiasm everyone at their San Francisco office brings to their work.
