The Artist & The Space ~ Tim
I met Tim Shore at an art fair recently. He is the founder of Shore Boards here in Minnesota. This is the land of 10 000 lakes, so it’s no surprise to find so much passion for water around here. What is amazing is how Tim turned a garage project of building a paddleboard just a few years ago into a thriving business today. Today Shore Boards ships custom SUPs, longboards and wakesurf boards all over the world.
Fueled by passion, ingenuity and lots of hard work, Tim is also a super nice guy. And yes, it’s pretty cool that his name is Shore 😉 I also met Noah, his design artist yesterday. Both were busy at work and I asked them to pretend I wasn’t even there. Because of the dust in the air, I only spent a few minutes in the facility. But I managed to get a few shots of the artists and the space… enjoy!
ABOUT THE PROJECT: For consistency, I shoot this project at 35mm (my fastest prime lens) with the Fujifilm X-Pro2 in Jpeg Acros film simulation and in horizontal format. I also always use ambient light and do minimal post processing, if any. The point of the exercise is to spend time playing with my camera, not with Lightroom. I strongly believe in the power of limitations and in making the photograph in camera.
As the title indicates, this series is about artists and their space, not so much about the art itself. As you know, I love photographing people, but I also love those little details that say so much about who a person is. Nothing is staged or posed, I simply record the artist at work.
