Portraits of Jim from this morning

I've know Jim for several years now, and have wanted to photograph him for almost as long.  He and his wife have spent the past 15+ years living in a cabin up in Big Cottonwood Canyon, and are faithful members of the LDS Brighton Branch where I attend church.

Finally got around to photographing him this morning, assisted by my friend, Ashton Rogers.  Jim hauled us in on his Polaris, along with two pelican cases of gear and a tripod towing behind in a utility sled.

Jim is an absolute inspiration - he has the enthusiasm and vitality of men a quarter of his age.

We shot a box of Polaroid Type-55 and about 40 sheets of Portra.  Until that all gets processed and scanned, however, the digital shots will have to suffice...
