Cal and Charlie flew from California to Michigan to visit their friends and family. Callum is a Michigan native and met his partner Charlie when he moved to Cali a few years ago. Since Callum and I go way back, we set up a time to hang out and get coffee. I snapped some photos, per usual.
I haven’t known Charlie long, but from the couple hours we were together, I can tell that they make each other really happy. Charlie was super welcoming and friendly, and he clearly has great taste in clothing. Things I learned about him are that he was born & raised in Cali, he has modeled in an LA studio photo shoot, and he can down a coffee so fast that it caught me off guard.
Okay okay okay,
Callum and I became BFFs in high school. Like, so great that he helped me pull off the biggest scandal of my personal life and we ended up living together in Junior year. (HAHAHA)
ANYWAY, we got even closer during Junior Year when we both found love for photography & cinematics. We ended up in a group project where we were to write and direct a short film about government. It went on to win several (seven?) Phoenix Awards.
SO if you have 26 minutes to spare and you’d like to cringe at some high school kids, here’s the link to that short film. BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! Six minutes more! Just because I want to make you uncomfortably smile, here’s the link to the bloopers.
We also got to make a commercial video advertisement for an engineering company and I so wish I could remember which company, or at least have the video we worked so hard on.
One of my core memories with Cal is wandering around his parents’ house, cameras in hand, and snapping photos together.
Here are the photos I took of Callum & Charlie after they traveled from California to Michigan!
