I want to fly to Los Angeles and make the greatest portrait of horror director John Carpenter you've ever seen.
John Carpenter is one of the true great masters of horror. I'd love to hang a photo of him in my office, but I haven't found one good enough, with that in mind, I decided to make one myself.
Over the years I've made portraits of people from actress Fairuza Balk, comic book great Michael Zulli, a bunch of rock stars, to people like the Dalai Lama. In Olden Times a magazine would send me out somewhere on assignment and I'd cross my fingers and say oh please oh please, send me to Egypt to photograph Zahi Hawass but now, with the Internet and Kickstarter you and I get to decide these things together, we get to be the magazine.
John and his wife Sandy King Carpenter are both happy to have me come out and do it.
All told, I need about $1,200 to get to Los Angeles and back, that's about it.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
