My services as your web designer include access to my private archive of historical and contemporary images.
I inherited my father’s collection of slides, mostly 35mm Kodachrome, which includes hundreds if not thousands of photos he took as he traveled all over the US in the 1960’s and 70’s, and as you can imagine, I think they hold historical significance. An accomplished amateur, my father had an excellent eye for content and composition. I may or may not have inherited those qualities–either way, I’ve certainly inherited his love of images and captured a few of my own.
I find Dad’s pictures stunning and sweet. I’m digitizing the slides into high resolution [4000dpi] jpegs, and I’d like to make them available to the public–that’s what lead me to start Our Kodachrome Years, my own micro stock photography site on Etsy. In 2019, I launched The William and Ruby Hinson Photo Archive, a WordPress site to exhibit the digitized images from the collection. I digitize and develop content for The Archive galleries, blog, and the online store, updating it almost daily.
As an American youth, I was privileged to travel to Berlin via the autobahn known as the Berlin Corridor in 1980. At that time, there were two countries named Germany–one was a thriving landscape in free Western Europe and the other was communist, a Soviet stronghold. The images I took there, when I was 20, that depict life in Pre-Unification Germany are among the ones I am most proud of.
Now my daughter India, herself in her 20s, is a budding art photographer with a burgeoning portfolio of film and digital images, color as well as black and white prints. She has an eye for landscapes and wildlife, and is an avid fan of street photography. Her images are available for purchase and use on the web at India La Motte Photography. She will also happily discuss commissions.
