“RIP Mitchell”

I just heard that Mitchell Cain passed away last November. He was always one of my favorite subjects when I was in Apalachicola. Any of you who came to any of my workshops will remember him, we always photographed him at some time during the workshop. I was not surprised to hear he was gone, he was never in great health. You will be missed!!

“Make My Day”

I was working on some prints for my show at Douglasville Cultural Arts Center and ran across this image from Apalachicola Bay. My friend Vinson Smith and I were out on the bay photographing the oystermen and he had a model for some nude work later on. When we approached Roger he said she could come on the boat and tong for oysters. We then asked if she could get nude, he said yes expecting that we were kidding. He and his helper had a blast with this.
