The Boston Globe has a piece on Autumn de Wilde up. Autumn has been an inspiration to me since coming across her photographs in an Eleni Mandell album 8 years ago. I’ve had the opportunity to assist her a handful of times on shoots in the Seattle and Portland area. We met backstage at a Death Cab for Cutie show in 2004 and two years later I got a call from Barsuk to assist with a Long Winters, followed by a Jesse Sykes shoot. Since then, I’ve been part of the crew for a shoot with the Decemberists and recently, the UK band Switches. Coming full circle, I was asked to assist on a Death Cab shoot this week but sadly couldn’t switch my schedule in time to make it work.
