100 Self Portraits in 100 Days

While looking at my site stats yesterday I came across a post from Blazing Monkey, one of the blogs that links to me, about 15 year old Icelandic photographer, Thorsteinn Cameron (Captain Cameron). Late last year he set himself to the task of creating 100 self portraits in 100 days.

It's a great series of shots from simple to wacky to surreal and back again, each shot showing a different side of the photographer (sometimes literally) and often utilizes varying photographic and post-production techniques. He tried to stretch his scope of vision and creative abilities with each outing and finally found his own personal style in the midst of this process.

It's a fascinating endeavor. I've always wanted to try something like this but have never had the time or discipline to keep it up. Every 6 months or so it seems I drag up this idea to do some ongoing photo project. I've posted twice before (here & here) about different concepts and an invitation to partner in a project like this - without any luck.

So, in another attempt to get something going, if you have any ideas and/or would like to work with me on something like this, please email me and we'll see what we can come up with.
