The first step to freedom is adventure.

45 years ago in 1968 Nasa debuted the first images of Earth from the moon. Space has always been that magical place the idea of worlds beyond this world. I always loved the idea of floating through space no gravity just silence and landing on another planet it always seemed like a dream but the best dreams are the ones that become reality in our parents life time we landed on the moon in our life time we may land on Mars I just didn’t want to wait since I have yet to build a space ship so I got the next best thing a couple of Hasselblad camera’s and some space suits and away we went.

When I first spoke to Hasselblad about shooting a series with one of their cameras the first thought I had was doing a space series. Hasselblad made the camera’s for the moon landing so I thought it only fighting to shoot this series on a Hasselblad, I used the H system and the 500c which is the same type they used on the moon you can see below a few of the behind the scenes shots. Huge thanks to Hasselblad if you have never shot with one you must!

    Hmmm, looks exactly like a project one of my photog buddies just did…?

  • Copycat

    I was thinking the same thing… pretty lame to steal ideas from others…

  • G.Will

    Wow way to take someone’s idea as your own. How about giving some creative credit. It’s times like these that I hope karma is real.

  • Tony S

    Solid Images. As for the “creative credit”… give a quick shout-out to those who thought of taking photos in a spacesuit, and keep going.

  • Debbie E

    You couldn’t have come up with a cool original idea on your own?

  • MB
