And I'll second Bert's posting of the NPR story...good listening for any photographer, not just people going to Samy's today.

(yes, I posted just to get this back to the top)

->> I just return from my adventure from Julius presentation.

The stories told by Mr. Shluman were worth the trip to the west side even with the traffic on the return. He is for sure not humble, like Bruce Davidson. There where plenty of comments to keep the audience entertained and I was the youngest in the crowd by at least 10 years. I am sure he lost as many clients as he gained with his choice of humor and words expressed, but all around, an interesting character to see in person. I asked a former photography professor of mine about Julius, and he was surprised to know he was still alive.

I strongly enjoyed the time machine almost experience of the photos shown. The way Hollywood and the surrounding landscape was just a few decades ago was cool to see. Especially after driving through it today, its amazing to see how quick things change.

He talked about how a photographer must work with the architect and home owner to achieve the shot worth for editor to publish. Often using the tenants to express certain feelings and desires a person would want in a house. The lighting technique was pretty self explanatory. Even out the exposures of the outdoors and indoor areas and show a relationship of the inhabitants and their house, was his advice. He was not shy to announce his book for sell however if you look closer, you will see his Chevy in the background in a few frames. His assistant also got to share a few frames as a model. The Getty (Museum) is now the sole owner of his archives. He mentioned how he no longer has to stress out about self promotion and thanks Getty for getting his work out to many more viewers than he could ever have done alone.

I was surprised to find out he spent 7-8 years in school (UCLA and Berkeley without finishing a degree), he called himself a drifter in his day before photography. Then with his Kodax camera (not sure of the model), which was a gift from his sister, he soon turned his hobby into his profession and craft.

The only sports related photo shown was one of a high school track meet back when the coliseum was first built. The rest was landscape and stories of his travels. Cool thing, he still shoots with his 4x5 field camera. He commented how he just finished photographing the exterior of the Griffith Observatory.

He may not drive any more and has lived in the same house, since way back when with the studio on front. He paid cash for the property and custom design house by Sorino if I remember correctly, an architect, whom he worked with often in his career.

I will end here; he for sure still has a spark common in most photographers I have met. He has not bought a camera in a few decades however he was enjoying that rental Canon 5D paired with the fish eye and was pretty socked to hear the price tag of that DSLR.

->> My son and I just arrived at UCLA a few hours ago for an invitational football camp. Truly sorry I missed the opportunity...we don't have alot of chances for these type of presentations back home in the islands. But at least I get a chance to check out the latest cool stuff tommorow at Samy's after my son checks in with the coaches.
