PLS 2019: Chidsey
Back in January I made a resolution/goal/blood oath to shoot an informal portrait every time I have lunch with a friend in 2019. It seemed like kind of a fun way to use my photography to build something with a little more meaning than my usual assortment of sunsets and natural wonders. Anyway, it’s been a fun project, and today I officially want to start sharing the results.
My first subject/victim is my longtime friend and associate Chidsey, the mastermind behind @sqwakdotcom . We’ve been friends ever since he started showing up late to my parties back in 2007 to talk pop culture long after most of the other guests had gone. In the time since we’ve worked together on a variety of projects, including a couple of different sketch comedy websites and my YouTube movie review channel, and he was kind enough to meet me at my favorite Peruvian restaurant in Bountiful to kick off this one, probably because he still feels guilty for making me appear on America’s Got Talent with him five years ago. Bless his heart, he even wore his Notorious RBG t-shirt just for the occasion.
