Over the summer I got the call I had been waiting for. Maggie Kennedy and Margaret Houston of the critically-acclaimed lifestyle magazine, Garden & Gun, hired me to photograph Jim Banagan and his collection of more than 3,000 oyster cans.
I didn't even know collecting oyster cans was a thing!
It was great to hang out with him for the day. Jim lives along the beautiful Clements River right where an effort is being made to revitalize the Maryland and Virginia oyster populations. As a recent lover of all things oyster, I sure hope it works.
You can see the images and read the piece by Logan Ward in the current issue (October/November 2014). Here are some outtakes from the shoot.
