Project: Thus Untitled…

I have a new project that I’m about to start. I’m not going to title it yet – as with many of my photo projects, the scope is evolving as I start scheduling and putting plans on paper.

Over the next couple months I need to assemble quite a cast for a photo project in Boise, about Boise. The project focuses on artists, it makes an attempt to showcase them and their work in an interesting perspective. I won’t go into all the details until I have a few of the shots completed and have a better vision of where this road leads, but I’m sure it’s going to be great. We’ll starting shooting the second week of October with people I’ve already contacted and scheduled- I’m starting with the easier locations and saving really tough ones for late in the project, once me and the project has some momentum. If you’re at least mildly interested in being a part of this project, send me an email, I’ll give you more of the details about the theme and the locations.

Here is list of a few of the folks I’m still looking to work with for this project.

  • Musicians
    I already have a several signed up, but could use a few more, so regardless of the instrument(s) you play – send me a note.  Especially looking for violinist, bassist and a small band. Near the end of the project I’ll be looking for a pianist but that will be the culminating piece of the project — And, quite a challenge – not sure I can pull off the location I want – need to work the phones and cash in a few favors 🙂
  • Painter
    Have a couple on the maybe list – wouldn’t mind talking with one or two more.
  • Potter/sculptor
    One of the more difficult shots.
  • Dancer
    Really looking for a ballet or otherwise classically trained dancer. But if you’re a modern/contemporary dancer, feel free to contact me.
  • B-Boy
    Need a master of handstands
  • Shakespearean Actor
    This will be one of the later shots in the project.
  • Mime(s)
    Should have this one covered already.
  • Martial Arts
    May have this one covered already – but feel free to contact me
  • Any creative/artistic person/small group
    I’m open to ideas. If you or your group is of the creative/artistic type and do something that isn’t in this list, let me know, I may already have enough interest in that area that I didn’t list it or I may have totally missed it. Speak up, we’ll see if you fit with the scope of the project.

As you can see, this isn’t a small project. I’ll post more details here in the future but in the mean time — if you fit in one of these categories, please contact me. If you know someone who does, pass this along.

Boise Curb Cup 2010

Went to the Boise Curb Cup yesterday for a couple of hours. Last year I took a ton of shots, literally at least one of each act, this year was a bit more low key. I only shot a few acts and took more time to enjoy a few we really liked last year. One act that we have enjoyed both years is Chad Summervill, be sure to check out his music (and a shot from last year’s curb cup on his CD). Also enjoyed the Summerwind skippers and the Boise Breakers, both of which we wished we had seen more of last year.

Got to run, just a quick post to say hi and share a few shots.

Boise Curb Cup 2009

Boise Curb Cup 2009 - Angie Stevens and The Mark

Angie Stevens and The Mark - Boise Curb Cup 2009

I’ve been meaning to post this for a bit now. But we all know how things seem to come up, it’d been a crazy week and then came the holiday weekend. I had to put down the computer and step away from the internet for the last four days; it was nice.

Last week Joy and I went to the first annual Boise Curb Cup. I’m not sure there’s a good way to describe it, but imagine 130 different, some really different and all very random street performers gathering for a two hour competition. We didn’t hear about the event until the day before, one of my wife’s friends was going to be among the performers. But we were able to rearrange our schedule to see it.

Looking at a list of 130 entries and knowing that we had two hours that meant less than a minute per individual or group. That’s not counting getting stuck in a crowd, crossing streets etc. Yeah. not gonna happen. So somewhat randomly and based on name alone I circled 10 groups that I wanted to see, Joy added two that weren’t already on my list, together we marked a few more as 2nds.

City Sidewalks

City Sidewalks

Christmas in Boise

It’s almost Christmas here in Idaho (and last I checked most other places). I spent some time running around town tonight trying to get some Christmasy shots. I’m generally unimpressed with the Christmas lights this year. Winter finally made it’s presense known in Idaho in the past week or two, a bit of a late start, but considering the snow in August. I guess it’s ok.

Took this shot downtown, apparently a hocky game was starting so parking was fun, but had enough time between groups of people to get some good shots. I particularly like this one. Which my wife informed me I had to title “City Sidewalks.” Fitting I guess.

We’ll be headed out of town for much of next week, but considering we’ll be seeing our new puppy for the first time… I’m sure you’ll hear from me. Merry Christmas.
