Clint Slaughter - San Luis Obispo

Clint Slaughter (1 of 2) I first photographed Clint Slaughter in early 2014 for the SLO MakerSpace. Clint's a friend, and was one of the first people I thought of when I started working on a new independent portrait project about especially interesting members of the San Luis Obispo community. Clint is the driving force behind the SLO MakerSpace, and serves on the MakerSpace Board of Directors as Chief Executive Officer. The MakerSpace is a collaborative machine, wood, electronics, and textile shop where community members come to work on all kinds of projects, take classes, and network with other local makers. As if that wasn't enough, Clint is also an emergency physician at French Hospital in San Luis Obispo and Arroyo Grande Hospital.

(Yes, he's "Dr. Slaughter." And no, I could not have made that up.)

Both of these photographs of Clint were made at the MakerSpace on medium format film using my Hasselblad. The film was processed by the always brilliant Richard Photo Lab in Valencia, CA.

SLO Makerspace - San Luis Obispo

SLO Makerspace The SLO Makerspace is a new collaborate workshop in San Luis Obispo. Brittany and I have been  project that Brittany and I have been working to help the Makerspace launch over the last several months, and we're having our first open house today, so it seemed like a good opportunity to share the series of portraits that I made of the SLO Makerspace Board of Directors. They needed something crisp, clean, and consistent for the Makerspace website, and it was a fun challenge to come up with a little bit of a concept for each board member, without over-propping, or falling too deep into cliché. I'm pleased enough with the result that I added the portraits to the list of projects on my portfolio site, so if you're interested, click over and view all of the images there.
