travisjensen Said this before, but tools in photography mean nothing. This was shot with a disposable camera - an expired one at that. Photo is an excerpt from my "Disposed" piece in the new issue of @TheHundreds magazine, where they hand over a disposable camera or two to different photographers to see what their pics look like sans any editing... Big shoutout to the homie Val for the impromptu photo opp. #excelsiordistrict 8h

travisjensen New post up on @TheHundreds: Photographer Zun Lee's new book, "Father Figure," addresses stereotypes surrounding black fathers. Lee’s photography is truly top shelf – he’s been a favorite of mine for years now, and his ideas surrounding this subject are very well developed, sincere, and heartfelt. Please do check him out… This man is the real deal behind the lens, no half-stepping. Click profile link to view story... 3d

travisjensen “Don’t think I can give this one to my kids,” said this city worker, moments after unveiling the below masterpiece from the trash. “But it’s a pretty good drawing.” Given the corner where this was found, my mind can’t help but wander a little about the origins of this drawing.... As my boy @cellski would say, the tweak is heavy... 4d

travisjensen Stand For Something... As seen outside the Tenderloin Police Station last night at a rally for Mike Brown, Alex Nieto, Oscar Grant and others And unlike some of the media we're being fed by some mainstream outlets, there's nothing staged about this photo. Meaning there's no photoshop trickery going on here, or any layering of images... Everything was done in-camera, not with an iPhone tho, of course. They're no good in lowlight settings as such....

We weren’t friends immediately – in fact, the first time I tried taking his picture, he put up the dukes on me, no joke! This particular morning, he was bumping Sabbath’s “Symptom of the Universe” on full blast and everything in The Mission momentarily felt as it should be.

travisjensen Who's trying to shoot some photos this weekend? Come join the SOS Collective (we're no longer a Mobb :) for a Saturday morning stroll around Mid-Market, The Tenderloin, Polk Gulch and Downtown. We're meeting at Civic Center Plaza at 8:00AM sharp, next to the fountain. Will probably lurk around until noon or so... Would love to see/meet you. As always, all are welcome at this table, first timers included and especially encouraged... Hope to see you there!
