Dylan Blackwell

Dylan Blackwell

An old Henry Horenstein photo manual was Dylan Blackwell’s ticket into photography. Finding it in the “derelict darkroom” of a summer camp where he worked, he read it cover-to-cover and was hooked -- even getting the darkroom functioning again. Following that early interest in photography, Dylan worked post-graduation for a consulting firm before ultimately circling back to his true desire, even living in a van on public lands in order to do what he loved. Dylan admits those days weren’t easy, but they helped him cultivate a deeper connection to America’s land, and hone his photography skills. Today, Dylan puts his artistry, patience, and plain old good luck to use, shooting with large and medium-format film cameras vs digital technology. He explains that while it takes several minutes to even focus the camera, he uses this “cumbersome” process because it produces incredibly detailed, nuanced images that can’t be matched by even the best digital cameras. “Customers appreciate the process and enjoy seeing my cameras in person. Many are incredulous that such prints can come from basic vintage equipment. Once they understand it, they appreciate the difficulty and craftsmanship behind my work.”
