Impeachment Hearings - Film!

Did you see the reporter with that 4x5 camera taking shots of Ambassador Taylor just before the hearings started? How utterly cool! He even stuck a dark slide in his mouth to get a close up shot, he was pressed for time.

That was the highlight of the hearings for me.

I haven't seen the photo but I'll bet on David Burnett.

Google him and his shots of the Olympics on a Speed Graphic, and other fun film stuff.

Looks like a good bet:

Thanks for that link. Hilarious comments. “He’s going to look more out of place at the Trump Jr impeachment.”

Wonderful!

There is a chap, Joshua Paul, who shoots formula one on a 1913 Graflex, so for a moment I thought it might be him.

Here's a story about Burdett at the hearings. There's a link at the bottom to the guy who puts these cameras together.

He also uses Holga and up to the last winter Olympics was a Canon shooter but switched to Sony.
There`s a persistent rumour that he`s the chap running and changing film in Nick Ut`s famous photograph (the uncropped version)..
He`s denied this saying that it was a stringer for UPI ,although he was there.

He famously took the shot of the Zola Budd /Mary Decker collision.

David Burnett demonstrates that a Holga really is a ‘professional’ camera.

I'd say so. When I saw that I thought what camera is that? I was pretty sure the lens was a 7 inch Ektar.

Now makes me want to get the Ektar off my anny and more inline with a view camera like his.

A great reminder not to ever forget about using film.

This is eight years old when he was shooting Canon but he explains the large format camera and why he shoots it .

Sweet! Had it been a fast-paced event, he could've impressed them with a Grafmatic back.

Important to document Congressional farces. A 4x5 seems fitting enough.
