I met photographer Travis Jensen through Jan Swayze who is a close friend of mine and also WEREHAUS. We were having lunch one afternoon and mentioned he was doing the designs for their new brand called FOTOMISH. I was following Travis on Instagram already so was familiar with his style of photography. A few months later when I was driving across the bay bridge, I thought of Travis and how he would be a good subject for WEREHAUS video. I sent Jan a quick text and later that evening we all met up. I caught up with the Travis and the FOTOMISH crew that night, we talked over a few ideas, and set a day to film the following Sunday.
The day played out exactly as we planned with a “call time” of 9AM. I showed up a few minutes late on my bike (drinking my coffee), and the crew was already outside. I quickly setup my camera and we did a quick interview before heading out to shoot photos – a Sunday ritual they do often. To them, photography’s about being outside and experiencing the city. It’s a way for them to interact with people, and possibly get into interesting situations. They would often stay behind to talk to the people they photographed to show them their photos. We ended the day with at Excelsior Park with the locals the locals Travis hangs out with there. They took a few more pictures, I filmed a few more clips, and we called it a day.
