Pemberton Meadows BC

I press the film release button to get another partial picture at the end of a roll sometimes. It either gives me a cool overlap, or ruins both pictures. This one is pretty good. Horizon. Pemberton BC

I don't know what else to call it. Rethink perspective. Spinner.


I've been scanning a lot of 360 panoramics and finding a few of these peoplebenders in between shots. This was the best of the recents. Wendy out in the water at Rathtrevor Park in late summer. Spinner.

Recent Links

I have a couple of photos in the most recent (2nd) edition of the popular "This is East Van" photo book.
Here's an article from Vancouver Is Awesome where Rob and Erin (curators of the book) name one of my photos as one that sticks out from the crowd of submissions. Thanks guys!

I also help my man Roddy (aka mcenroe) shoot music videos every so often.
He is a music producer/musician and video producer/director.
Here's links to 2 recent videos I helped shoot:

e.d.g.e.- "Ed Pengame" :
I was one of two cameras on this one. Roddy shot the other.

mcenroe- "Last Man Standing" :
I was one of two cameras on this as well. Philip Lanyon was the other.
Roddy also shot some of the inserts for cutaways.
We also used my Polaroid Press Camera as a prop/stills camera in the video.

More photos coming soon....

6X18 Pinhole Test

I recently shot 2 rolls of test pictures with my newly acquired medium format pinhole camera. It makes 4 shots on a roll of 120 film. 6 x 18 format. I was shooting on a shaking, fast moving boat, so they weren't all great. This is my favourite of the 8 I took. Ferryboat to Vancouver Island on father's day 2012.

Ocean Concrete

Some tubes and pokey screens.
Weird swing-lens flare on the second one.

Slow Photography

It's been awhile and updates are coming soon.
I am currently finishing up scanning negatives from my 7500+km roadtrip in late NOV-DEC of 2011.
My process is slower than slow, but this is my hobby and not my job so I'm only updating when I'm not busy.

I was waiting to finish a few film rolls in different cameras before posting more, as I want to post my best pictures, not ALL of my pictures.
My non-film / iPhone photos from that trip are about 50% posted on Instagram. I upload 3 a day usually.
usernames : Ian Beer / Ianbeerphoto
Follow me or just come have a look. Especially if you're into hotel soaps/objects/landscapes. I know you are...

If you're interested in the videos we were shooting  this trip:
I was grip/electrics/C cam/sometimes B cam/splinter cam/scripty/data manager/transfer dude. one low price.
Thanks for reading. More film uploads in the coming days......
