This morning I finally figured out how to print instax squares off the Fuji SQ-10 that weren’t shot on the camera and ran off these images of Kacie Marie – for a long time I resisted trying this because it’s, you know, “fake instax” (says the man who makes music out of 85% samples) but now the scales have fallen from my eyes and I see the creative potential, not just refining higher quality images before I print, but working more with instax collage and mixed media/ creative damage/ write stories on the print. And really what is the difference between one machine printing an image or another? Besides more people actually collect instax…
Which brings me to the topic of my upcoming instax sale, which I’m doing to help fund upcoming trips to NYC and Hawaii. I’ve got images of some of the best indie models out there, including
..and some others which I’ve put on sale before. BUT! Now I’m able to do some SPECIAL REQUESTS! Basically any image shot with any model can be made into a specialty square instax. I don’t mass produce these things so no worries about getting “just another print.” Instant film is still a singular art artifact that doesn’t take up a ton of space or cost a lot of money and it’s a great way to have some keepsake of your favorite model!
Sale starts April 1st, and by all means send me any requests! Prints will be made upon purchase.
Here’s the sale prices:
1-5 instax: $10 each
6 for $50
10 for $75
FREE shipping in the US. Images forthcoming but get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions/ requests and do check out my Patreon where all my full uncensored model sets and tutorials hang out!
More work shot with actress and model McKenzie Eckels, 3 days into my use of the Instax Wide 300 camera and 1 day before it broke the first time.
Thanks for watching and check out my Patreon for full model sets and tutorials!
Most of the models I work with are also talented actresses and singers- McKenzie Eckels absolutely excels at these (as well as being an amazing drawer and painter). This collaboration was made as a tribute to her favorite Twilight Zone episode, “Come Wander With Me”. The AMAZING singing is all McKenzie. Let us know what you think!
This week’s 18+ model set on my Patreon is one of my oldest collaborators, Janette. This was our first actual nude shoot after 7 years of working together, shot when I had a studio in Tempe. I did a lot of lighting experiments to go equally cosmic and dark and moody.
All model sets come with explainer video- access to the twice-monthly 18+ sets is at the $5 patreon level, and Janette’s set is lurking here! Thanks again for any and all support!
Let me tell you about some instax work shot with model Corie Shannon during her 2017 trip to my town, Phoenix. We shoot in the studio and out n about at a local ruin called Scorpion Gulch.

I had been wanting to do a graphic design-themed zine for a long while (having access to a fairly nice color copier at my work) and by the time Phoenix Zine Fest rolled around fall of 2017, I had enough material to make 3 issues. Models include my daughter Maggie, Alina Lee aka Thumbelina, McKenzie Eckels, Ana Corbí, and many many more of my favorite people.
Graphic design school was my first education after high school and anything pushing design or altered photography I’m there for. It is so much fun to take an image and push it to new levels.
Anyone interested in actually owning a zine can order one on my shop. Each are approximately 6×8″ with card stock cover, hand stitched binding, 20 pages of design and writing and a 16 track CD of original ambient/ trip hop music I made.
I have an explainer video of why you may want to make a zine of your own on my YouTube! Feel free to contribute to the list of complaining comments about how the music is too loud in this particular video.
Featuring work I did with model Hailey J in Portland last December. I tell you about the stylistic and conceptual approaches to working with an art nude model in a dance studio. Actual uncensored instax and more at my Patreon!
