The Ultimate Photographer Kit by Jim Golden

Commissioned for Nike’s in-house photo studio, photographer Jim Golden and stylist Kristin Lane bring together an extraordinary collection of cameras and equipment for a unique 10 x 8 foot print. Portland’s local photography community were on hand to help build this ridiculously impressive selection, many of the old cameras irreplaceable to their owners, as Golden states “Many memories and stories were passed around all day at the shoot. A HUGE thanks goes out to everyone who participated.” From Polaroid SX70s to those hefty Land cameras, the brilliant Olympus XA series, Mamiyas, Hasselblads,  Kodak Brownies and pocket sized toy cameras, the project brings together enough classics to make a grown enthusiast weep.
