If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you will remember at the end of 2009 I went through my office and closet. While doing this, I pulled out all my old negatives and prints from my early years in photography. All the images below are more than 10 years old, made from scans of prints which were in my old portfolio. I would post more images, but I only have the negatives and no prints. Maybe one day I will get around to making prints and do another blog post. I hope you enjoy.
The following images are from when I was interning at The Aegis in Bel Air, MD.
My lifelong friend Trent Gladstone and the annual Harford County Young Life Golf Tournament.
Falling Branch in northern Harford County.
The last image is very special to me. Just yesterday I found out my friend Josh Komarnicki passed away over the weekend. Josh is standing there with the umbrella towards the center of the frame. I took this image while we were on a trip to New York City October 19th 1996. It was record rainfall day for New York City, the subways and roads were flooded. Even with an umbrella, we were soaked. It is a day I will never forget.
I was just getting into photography at this time, and so was Josh. We had so many great times together shooting for The Aegis, making prints in the darkroom, and just hanging out. Even though Josh and I lost touch when he moved to Virginia, I know if we were ever to get back together it would of been like old times. Josh was a free spirit and incredibly talented, I am sad he is gone. I will always remember him especially since he was there during my early years of discovering my passion of photography. Please lift his family up in prayer.
