I cleaned my son's room out today, in preparation for painting and putting in a new carpet
. Have you ever really been into the depths of a 15 year old boy's room? My god. There were things in there I haven't seen in three years. I found CDs I thought I lost, half my towels, notebooks from three grades ago and....stuff. Unidentifiable stuff. A bag with Christmas candy he got two years ago. Clothes he hasn't fit into since his growth spurt last year. Everything he said he couldn't find when he needed them. And...I found my Legend of Zelda for Gamecube. The special edition with four games on it that he swears he never borrowed from me. Just for that, I'm keeping the four unused gift cards I found under his bed.
This photo is of two of his five guitars. They are hanging on his wall. On the left is a Gibson knock off
that he took apart, put back toget
her, took apart, tweaked, took apart, etc. On the right is his current guitar of choice, a Fender Strat.
You think photography is an expensive hobby? The worth of the guitar stuff I collected from his room - two pods, effects, pedal board, three more guitars, a bag full of sundry parts, 19 tab books, an amp, three pickups and two cases - could feed a third world country for a week.
He promises he'll pay me back when he's famous. I just want him to keep his damn room clean.
About 2 years ago i came up with this idea for a shoot. I was never really happy how it came out. I decided I would like to take another crack at it. I originally wanted my friend lola to do the shoot but she backed out but recommended her friend patty who lived in las vegas. Patty was coming down for the week so it worked out perfectly. Since I no longer have my apartment and the space to shoot we had to rent a hotel room. The room was pretty pricey but there was plenty of room and alot of privacy. We made quite a mess doing the shoot and even got a ton on the carpet. Lucky for me the paint washed off
pretty easily. Patty really opened up half way during the shoot and we were able to get
some amazing images. Even though the hotel room was super expensive it was worth it.
