Throwback Thursday: The Mission Shot

This is a shot of me over ten years ago in Santa Barbara. It was my first assignment at photo school and my first time using the 4x5 Horseman. I had no idea of what was ahead of me in life, but I knew that I had a wealth of new friends and experiences coming from every direction.

I just recently learned that none of the assignments are shot on film anymore and that they may be selling all of the Santa Barbara campuses and moving the school south to Ventura. It's a sad thing to imagine a filmless photo program and the school moving to a new location. After I had been accepted to a handful of other photo programs around the country, the location of Brooks in Santa Barbara was my deciding factor.
