My guest on the episode is Ben Horne. Ben is a large format film photographer based in The San Diego Area. Yup, that's right, large format- the kind where the film is the size of a family portrait and you get to put a cool hood over yourself when you're setting things up.
Ben's approach to photography is incredibly refreshing and his photographs are full of soul.
I think you're gonna love it.
