figuring out which prints to do of mitch for the legacy print series (100% of proceeds will be going to the upcoming memorial fund to benefit his family/kenadees future)
the prints will go live as soon as the fund is set up - which should be in the next day or two.
let me know which shots are your favorites, and i will print the top ten as unlimited run-prints
and ill do the top 3 as large format prints or canvas prints
again - ALL proceeds will be going to the memorial fund, so think of it as donating and getting a photo print or canvas or metal print in return.
this holds true for any custom prints of mitch ordered.
so - let me know which are your favorites by tweeting at me or leaving me a comment on here (i enabled let people photo reply) - and ill have them ready in the next day or two.
thanks everyone for all the support and love.
it took me a while to come to this… but Mitch isnt gone. Friday at the palladium, I walked the dressing rooms where we had done many shoots, had many heart to hearts, and probably where we spent the most time hanging out… i walked the parking lot, where we had shot with parker, the stage where his foot had come down hard many times during sets…
I dont believe in anything beyond whats here. But i know, Mitch is still here with every story and every memory we can share about him.
His infectious smile, was like freddy krueger. - it FED off of other smiles… When he would, with a massive grin of accomplishment and pride, show anyone cell photos of Kenadee… as soon as that person would say how cute she (or they) were, and smile, his smile only got bigger.
mitch lives within every smile he causes, between his music/lyrics, to his jokes, his friendship, parker, kenadee, his family, his memories, his stories, and anything he did to make others smile, even if to make his smile bigger….he had the brightest one. lets all try for second place.
Email from Kyla
"Hi Jeremy, I just wanted to take a quick moment to share something with you. Your posts last Thursday really touched me and I wished there was something I could do for you. Since I was going to the vigil and I had was bringing a print of my own, I decided to bring one that I bought from you this past year. I put them in ziploc bags to protect them from the elements and left them at the memorial site, and the next day a friend of mine informed me that someone had come by and framed both photos and placed them at the center of the memorial. I went back to visit today, and saw that on your photo are post-its with notes from Mitch’s mom and another family member. I actually met Jolie and was able to explain that since you’re on the east coast, I thought it would be a way of making your presence felt. After I explained, she smiled and said that she was so glad, that Mitch loved you and she was glad that in some way you could participate. I hope I haven’t overstepped my bounds in leaving a part of you work there, I respect you so much, and in your grief I wanted to offer something.
Hugs, prayers, and good vibes your way,
- thank you so much kyla, this means the world to me.
For Mitch: I spent yesterday going through a wheel of emotions. From denial, to overwhelming and crushing sadness, to anger, and disbelief. I haven’t cried this hard in my lifetime. Waking up the next day, realizing its real… I’ll never get that smile back, those hugs, or, when having a bad day, those “whats up dude? who do i have to beat up?” texts. And poor Kenadee… no one, on this planet has ever loved anyone as much as Mitch loved his daughter Kenadee. The thought of her having to grow up with out that smile, with out that unrelenting love and pride he had for her, is soul crushing and just brings me back to tears. We have lost one of the last sincere gentlemen on the planet. We have lost the greatest smile, the biggest heart, and the world is now a far colder place with out him in it.
I spent the later part of yesterday going through every single photo I’ve taken of him. Live photos, session photos for magazines, and of course the fun random shoots we would do for the hell of it, because as we enjoyed each others friendship personally, we also were able to enjoy our friendship professionally. Getting to watch him get on the stage, OWN IT!, and stomp it out… always amazing. Being able to capture bits and pieces of who he is was such an honor.
So as I was going through the images, both laughing and crying at the same time, I know there’s many in there that have never, and likely would never see the light of day, such as funny outtakes, joke shots, test shots, and things like that. Some are final images that were printed before, some aren’t even edited, or are in their raw state… but I wanted to put these images together and share them with everyone, so they can see a part of Mitch some may not have seen. He took to the stage in seriousness, but off stage he was truly the fun-loving person. always down for a joke, always ready to make someone else laugh at any expense. He loved to share smiles with others, and with that, I share these images with you in hopes you can do as I did, and smile for him, as he would have wanted.
