Set up on the floor of a decaying portable building, in storage at Paul’s Junkyard (still one spot available for the May workshop here!). That big green planet outside the window sure looks close, hope we don’t crash into it. Protomachine flashlight set to blue, purple, green and red.
The rare split-level Greyhound Scenicruiser at Paul’s Junkyard (only 1000 made). I’ve shot a number of these in various junkyards over the last 20 years and every single one of them reeks of overflowing toilet inside. A naaaasty design flaw, apparently. I love how that table/platform seems to be galloping alongside the bus. I moved [...]
A couple more pieces in the vast truck cab collection at Paul’s Junkyard. Full moon (hidden behind the big truck’s sun visor, leaving most of the scene in silhouette), 148 second exposure. In that two minutes I used the Protomachine flashlight to light the inside of the cab and the spindles of plastic tubing purple, [...]

Want to learn how to do this kind of photography? I’ve had 2 previously closed spots open up for my May 2013 workshop. Here’s your chance to spend 3 nights shooting with, and learning from me at Paul’s amazing high desert junkyard and movie-prop storage facility. There’s also several hours of technique demos and critical analysis [...]
One of the last shots of the night, as the rain began to fall, at the final Pearsonville workshop, March 2011. This Mach 1 survived that winter’s crush of 500+ cars, but the ultimate fate of this car is unknown. Full moon, 95 second exposure, natural Stinger Streamlight.
The driver’s seat of a bread truck . . . masquerading as a SWAT van, in storage at Paul’s Junkyard. This is what happens when you shine a flashlight on a curtain that’s slowly swaying in the breeze. 98-seconds in full moon light. Protomachine flashlight set to red, green and purple . . . from [...]
