Introducing Sam Nesbitt

Niche in the Woods

Shane and I recently created Model Mayhem accounts, and experienced our first successful contact with a local photographer, Sam Nesbitt. This project excited me from the start with his initial statements of intentions for a shoot with his father’s World War Two Army Air Corps uniform. We headed to the hills, and I reveled to participate for the first time in a shoot that was not my brain child nor my efforts to tell a story. This was Sam‘s scene and concept, and all I had to do is show up and pose, a fun change in pace right when I was feeling discouraged that personal budget cuts were going to shave off the amount of work we are able to produce for this blog. Meeting Sam is a brilliant new adventure on this journey, and I look forward to broadening my scope as we work with this fellow Creative Mind and Engineer. Collaboration is genius!

M1 Garand

I did bring along three of my own props to add to the scene: a borrowed M1 Garand authentic to the era of the uniform, an over coat also authentic to the era, though belonging to a WAAC, and a real WWII helmet I picked up at the Sacramento Antique Faire months ago.
