WPPI 2011
Las Vegas

About two hours before heading to the airport I made a rather interesting decision – I was just going to shoot film. No digital. At all. Best decision I made.

Nothing beats wandering the strip with a rather bulky medium format camera. The wonderful thing about Vegas is that there is always guaranteed to be someone more interesting than you on the block. My camera was the least of people’s concerns with the men on the corner handing out their cards, the buskers selling bad karaoke or dressed in ridiculous get-ups crooning “I am beautiful! Look at me! I’m on a sidewalk!”, and the odd stormtrooper strewn here and there. I could swear I saw both Elvis and Michael Jackson as well.

Despite appearing as a bad set of the real Vegas, the strip in the day time had its own handful of gems.

I hope you enjoy viewing these and laugh as much as I did taking these.

Thanks so much for looking! Feel free to leave a comment. Love to hear from ya!

    Okay, I don’t even know where to begin with all this awesomeness, but I’ll try.

    1.) Film.
    2.) Boobie Tassles.
    3.) Hot Ass Escort.
    4.) A Storm Trooper pointing at me.
