Working with friends is fun. Case in point: this photo shoot for Bailey Fine Art Printing. Curtis is the premier fine art printer in Souther California. I've had the privilege of knowing Curtis for over ten years, back to when we both started out working at Tuttle Cameras. We rubbed shoulders every week as we sold film during the day, and practiced our craft in the back studio after hours.
Curtis focuses his craft of precision and nuance. He's a technical wizard, but he still feels the essence of the photo. It's a rare combination, and I'm so glad I'm still close enough to his shop to get my work printed by this master in his craft. He makes my photos look better then when I took them.
Bailey Fine Art is updating their website, and so when it worked out for me to shoot a few images of Curtis' work I was elated. Not only do I get to represent someone I deeply respect through my craft, I got to do so in the company of a good friend.
