Ben & Loch Lomond

Published 18 Apr 2018 – Updated 15 Apr 2018

As seen through the Hasselblad 500C/M and Portra 400

If you are unaware, Ben Lomond is a small mountain town in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Formerly a mining town built along the San Lorenzo River, it now lies quietly nestled into the mountains – a relaxing refuge from the craziness of nearby Silicon Valley. Near Ben Lomond is Santa Cruz's reservoir, Loch Lomond, accessed through the small nameplace of Lompico.

I shot these photos on Portra 400 using the Hasselblad 500C/M.

about Branden Frederick

I am a photographer: I have fun taking photos, and I always have.

I've had a camera in my hand my whole life, a 110 camera as a kid, and the high school's 35mm SLR later. In 2008 I spent six months doing nothing but taking photos and loved it. From that point on I've had my camera surgically attached to my hand (I lie). I went digital in the year 2000, and I came back to film in 2013. My parents tell me my photos are "nice".
