My first step into photography was innocent enough. I purchased a disposable camera on a road trip with friends a couple summers ago. Then a digital Point and shoot, soon a DSLR and the gizmos and gadgets to go with that. Now, A month past my 24th birthday, I've submitted my portfolio to gain entry into school where I hope to learn more about the hobby turned art that I would some day like to call my profession. Months ago, as I sat up with my girlfriend talking about our childhoods, I brought out a photo album, Filled with picture of my earlier years. "Why are all the pictures square?" she asked. I'd never really put much thought into it before. It piqued my curiousity and I did a little research both into the cameras and into the man that documented my childhood, my dad and his Hasselblads. He purchased his first hasselblad for aerial photography, mounted far in the back of his piper supercub it was impossible for him to frame the shot, trigger the shutter and fly the plane at the same time. He needed someone small ...... someone that never complained about tight spaces ........ me. I don't think there are many photographers on the planet that can say that they're first experience with a one of the finest cameras ever made was at 3000 ft crammed in the back of a tiny airplane bouncing across the sky, I can. As I grew up I became more interested in Mountain Bikes, Cars and girls and less interested in photography. I regret that deeply. Now that I have found my passion, I wish I had that time back. More sunsets. More dewey mornings. More memories captured forever on film. I've recently moved back my home town. The same town that my father stills resides in. Before now I never realized the scope of my dad's Hasselblad collection. Over the Years He's aquired two 500 EL/M's and an ultra Rare Mk70. I find comfort in the fact that regardless of how much I spend on my own lens lust that it will never even come close to the total cost of my dads hassy lens collection. Beyond the dollars and cents of it, My interest in his Hasselblads has sparked a new Common bond between us and ignited a new father/son spark. I'm not a writer, Never have been, it's not in my blood. Photography on the other hand. Give me a couple years and we'll see. 1) My dad's first Hasselblad. (60mm Zeiss Lens) 2) The 100mm Zeiss lens that captured the majority of my childhood.
