Assisting Autumn de Wilde


Had the opportunity to assist one of my biggest inspirations over the years, Autumn de Wilde. I initially found her work via the Elliot Smith photos she became so well known for. Since then she has shot many of Music's best (Beck, Wilco, Spoon, Jack White, Miranda July, etc..). She works exclusively with film; primarily on her Hasselblad. The above photo was a Polaroid test of me from the day we worked with The Decemberists out on a small farm near Portland, OR. The shoot was a long one but fun. Of anything I took from assisting, I was most excited to watch her interaction with the band. It takes a truly special photographer to keep a band excited, happy, and willing to shoot a 10-12 hour portrait session. She is patient and willing to wait for the shot she knows she wants. I look forward to seeing the final photos. Till then enjoy a few of my favorite Autumn de Wilde images from over the years.
