In 2017 I had an idea for a personal photo shoot that really excited me. I wanted to create a library of lifestyle images that captured the lives of youth/young adults in the U.S. over the course of 4 decades; the 1960’s, 1970’s, 1980’s and 1990’s. And my goal was not just to create a homage to these periods, but to make the photos look as they were shot in their respective time periods.

I began shooting in September of 2018 by doing the 80’s first. I tried my best to keep all of the props authentic, even down to the Coke and McDonalds products used. I searched out and bought items online from places like eBay and when not available I printed out replicas and made them myself.

All photos were taken in the Nashville area with a Canon 5D Mark IV and Profoto B1 and/or A1’s. I didn’t want to “cheat” and use film for these shoots. I wanted to show that I could re-create time periods using modern technology.

I’ll be putting a blog post soon to show some behind the scenes footage and go into some further detail about the project.

I hope you enjoy this trip to the past…
