Vampire Hunter

“They’re only noodles, Michael.”

This year it was decided that vampires reign supreme once again. Building off the vampire shoot last year, I got together with friend/photographer John Lauritsen for a shoot at his family’s farm in Maryland. Three models brought the vampire hunter theme to life. The cold didn’t keep us from jumping around like maniacs and fogging up a 100 year-old barn filled with lighting equipment.

Models: Amber Matthews, Chris Slovak and Laureen Taylor

Farm Photo Shoot with Model Chris Slovak

We had the luxury of a comfortable fall morning to shoot with Chris on the Pine Valley Christmas Tree farm in Elkton, Maryland. I lost my damn mind and decided to shoot with three totally different cameras. One DSLR. One medium format with b&w film. One 35mm with color film.

I think I prefer the film shots to digital especially for a location such as a farm. Film looks properly weathered like many of the pieces of equipment used on a daily basis to grow crops or feed livestock.

Enough rambling…enjoy the shoot. To schedule your own shoot, contact me at csztybel@thatwerks.com or by filling out the contact form on the site.
