Shooting Gallery

Shooting Gallery is a new project by my good friend Jennilee Marigomen (curator of the best tumblr on the internet). It’s a collection of videos of photographers shooting and talking, and sometimes not talking at all. You can learn so much from just watching a person work.

OLD CHUM / OLD FAITHFUL

Walter Manning is the man behind one of my favourite tumblrs, Old Chum. He has gained a massive following online and now he has opened a shop here in Vancouver, Old Faithful. It is a total blessing to our city. I met up with him a couple weeks ago to ask him a few questions.

These were ordinary people who did extraordinary things.

I came across one placard of a picture of some men hiking supplies through the rugged landscape. One of the men had a crate on his back and on the side was inscribed “Old Chum”, a Canadian tobacco company, and it all fell into place for me and Old Chum was born. The name summed up what I wanted a blog to be.
