Team M&M – Matthew Daniel, Matthew Kowalski
This was my first year working with Matthew. I can really say that he has a lot of energy, which made our outings really fun and exciting.
Matthew had a great idea for our first shoot. He suggested a shot in the gold mine. As we talked about it we realized there is not too much to see in a dark mine shaft. Then he said; “what if we could get an actual gold miner panning for gold?” Through means I’m not able to divulge we Matthew and I travelled back to 1831, where we met Jake. You could imagine his surprise when we popped in. He thought we were claim jumpers, but we assured him we were not after his gold. Matthew and I explained that we wanted to take his picture and we would be on our way; Jake was more than happy to oblige. As we took his Photo Matthew asked Jake “Why do you do this?” Jake paused for a moment then said. “I pound these rocks for one reason and one reason only; “I don’t need to be rich, I just need to keep my wife Sara happy, this is what makes me rich.”
Happy with our shots of Jake we moved on. I said to Matthew, “I live just up the road, let’s see what my land looks like in 1831 before the house went up.” It was getting late, but we saw this magnificent sunset, and we managed to capture it and bring it back to 2019. Isn’t it funny how the sunset looks the same, even after 188 years?
We Hope enjoyed traveling through time with us!
