I met Chris Van Doorn at last years 159 Manning BBQ (2011). He introduced himself, thanking me for throwing the party, and he took some great pictures (on film) that day, like this one of Chris Murphy and me and Nick Bechard!
Since then, he’s quit his previous full-time job to spend more time and energy focused on photography. He does great work so I hired Chris to set up a portrait studio at the 159 Manning BBQ this year. He shot inside the house through-out the day in the bedroom at the top of the stairs, which overlooks the backyard. He posted the results yesterday; the photos are stunning. Chris, you made everyone look beautiful!
Here’s a selection of the portraits he shot on film:
