    Great portraits, thanks for sharing. I do like your background cloth as well.

    Well Done!
    Great images!
    I've been mulling a similar strategy for some local festivals here but haven't gotten all the puzzle pieces into place yet. Great inspiration!

    Good job Cameron! I live in Bellingham and have attended that festival a few times in the past. I even recognize one of your subjects from around town here. I'm impressed that you made more than 80 portraits. Were they all done at the Jamboree? -Rob

    Great job, Cameron. Love all the images, but gotta favor the barefoot bari sax lady. It is so much my favorite instrument that I almost bought one to learn to play it. I now regret that I didn't. Congratulations on your work!

    I highly recommend this strategy. By setting up at a busy, happy place like a music festival, people wander by. Seven out of ten don't even notice, but the people who are into it self-select and really seem to enjoy the process. Great conversations and even relationships ensue. By not charging for the sitting, I can do it however I want. I'm not trying to please anyone but myself. I have a box out for donations. I gave the donations (about $80 last year) to my son (the lanky guy in glasses in the snapshots) who was my right-hand man. He had a great time, too.

    You live in Bellingham? So do I! Just south of Lake Whatcom, actually. I hope you'll come to the Jamboree again this year. Stop by my circus tent and I'll make your portrait.

    All of the portraits I posted at the beginning of this thread were from last summer's Jamboree. Below are some portraits I made at the 2016 Jamboree. That summer, I just camped with my 8x10 and set it up after the sun set behind the trees each afternoon around 5 p.m. Solving the problem of shooting portraits in high summer sun was really what got me interested in building a north light studio. The light in that thing is just lovely. Every time I looked through the ground glass, I'd almost gasp at how gorgeous the light was on my subject.

    Here are a couple more portraits from the 2017 Jamboree. This is a band called the Hot House Jazz Band. Fantastic musicians, really friendly people. The band leader had his trumpet sit in for him in the portrait inside of the tent.

    Yes, we live a little south of the university. I will send you a private message here this afternoon. Perhaps we can get together and look at some prints. I'd like to show you some gum dichromate portraits I have been making! Regards, Rob

    Good on you for making this happen, and doing such a great job of it.
