After earning a Bachelors degree in Communications from Syracuse University, I began a photography career in photojournalism in the Boston area. As early as the mid 1970s, I started using a GAF 220 Instant Load 110 camera (yes, I still have it), inherited a 1947 Edwin Land Model 95 Polaroid Land Camera, and quickly progressed to my first 35mm film camera, a Pentax K-1000. That day the world changed for me and how I would come to view the world as one big rectangle, full of light and opportunity. Today, I shoot with all Nikon equipment and have been so since 1980. In addition to the DSLR format, I have experience with large format photography using 4X5 and 8X10 cameras, in-studio, on-location, carefully mixing daylight with speedlights. Most recently, I have taken up the pinhole camera for fun, using black & white film, transfer to CD and edit in Photoshop. I treated myself to a hand-made, wooden pinhole camera made in Slovakia. It’s a work of art! The result: a dream-like image reminiscent of the wet plate photography days, or Collodion Process, which replaced the Daguerreotype during the 1850s.
Mary Langdon has over 20 years of experience working with children, and five years experience as a full-time photographer, producing children’s portraits, pre-school aged through high school. Mary’s strengths are keeping kids engaged and comfortable in the portrait process, watching the details, and capturing the child’s best moments. Mary has been formally trained in posing and lighting techniques with small speedlights as well as studio lighting, and in group portraits and the use of Adobe Lightroom. In her spare time, she also enjoys photographing a nice still-life using natural light.
Whether it’s an environmental portrait, architecture interiors, or a story we’re telling through images, we approach our work from a photo-journalistic perspective. We seek to capture a moment, beautiful composition, in color or black & white, and by carefully lighting our subjects.
In 1985, Scot spent five weeks in northern Israel on the border of Lebanon, living and working on Kibbutz Malkiya (a volunteer work community) shooting a picture story about life on a kibbutz.
Since 1949, Kibbutz Malkiya has been a farming and work community with the population of approximately 460 people and includes families, single members, children, community neighborhood residents and volunteers. Here, volunteers from countries all over the world, have come for short and long term stays as far back as the 1960’s to be part of a movement and way of life, of living and working together, farming cotton, kiwi, melons and apples, contributing with professional skills developed in Israel or the US, and selling kibbutz-made children’s toys to the local community. In the following PHOTO ESSAY, as a photojournalist and kibbutz volunteer, Scot documented the day-to-day life of work and play at Malkiya.
