Summer Film Scans

Summer is coming to an end for better or for worse, but I was lucky enough to capture some of my summer through my lens. So here is what i've been up too.


I MOVED! I was stressful but now I feel blessed to have central park as my backward and to be steps away from the conservatory gardens. Here are some shots from one of my first walks through central park after moving in.

and incase you were wondering my roommates and I are loving our new place

I spent time wandering parts of the city I know well as if I had never been there. and and was a tourist in the parts of the city i've never been too.

I took a few summer day trips out of the city to Coney Island beach (which I guess is in the city) and to my friends lake house upstate.

And I begrudgingly got my friends to let me take pictures of them.

Overall this summer as a blast, and while I'm said to see it go i'm sure fall will have it's share of fun film scans.

Best,

Judson

As a person, photographer and member of society I find it incredibly useful to talk about issuses that surround the photography industry. Also as a member of the LGBTQ community i find it both empowering and important to bring to light some of the issuses where the set two worlds collide.  

Here is where I stand. I would proudly shoot clients from all backgrounds, races, sexualites, genders etc. I also believe that it is incredibly important to show potential clients this stance and pride.  These pictures are from a recent engagement shoot for Alana and Clair, who identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community. During their shoot they talked about how important it is for potential clients to "see themselves" in a photographer's portfolio. Alana and Claire described how when searching for someone to shoot their wedding,many photographers they came across didn't show LGBTQ couples. 

Check out more images from the session below. Thanks again to Alana and Clarie you two were amazing to work for!

Springtime Film Scans


One of be best qualities that film still holds over digital for me is the practice of patience. One of the great and unfortunately essential qualities of digital is the immediate ability to look at your photos immeditaly.

For these films scans, I sent them to the lab to be developed and scanned almost a month after I shoot them. These photos came from an afteroon with friends from Jersey City.

Allow I love these pictures actheically one of the best thing about getting these film scans, and most film scans back, is ecitment of what the images will look like. 



I love how these imahes came out, and I hope you all do as well!.

Alex Portrait session

You don’t need to change yourself. Ever. You need to come home to yourself. And that changes everything.
— Scherer

Senior portraits are some of my favorite shoots to do, and this one was anything shy from that. Check it out!


Alex is a senior and is excited to be attending UCSD in the fall, planning to major in speech therapy.



In her own words, " I can't wait to show all my friends her great work!! Thank you judson!"



Seniors always seem to be so excited to get their portraits done, they love picking out the perfect outfit and look forward to posting on social media.


"Just open your eyes a bit"
