Spring into Summer ’21

Here are some film photos shot using my Olympus OM2-N between April to July 2021. Fujifilm Fujicolor 200 has been my go-to roll over the past year. These were shot all over San Diego from Barrio Logan to Hillcrest, Del Mar Fair, Little Italy, and more! ENJOY!

San Diego Drag Excellence

San Diego Pride just so happens to take place this weekend, so what better time to share these photos than now?

Palm Canyon

I just wanted to share some photos of my “location crush,” Palm Canyon, located here in San Diego at Balboa Park. It’s one of the many trails that run through the park, but this one in particular just so happens to be my favorite visually.

Seeing San Diego

It’s been a minute, but I have some good news! Some of my photography was recently featured in Black SD Magazine’s April Issue, my first printed publication!

B.T.S. with B.Towner Photography

To Grandpa Ralph, Love, Jazzmine

To anyone grieving a loss this holiday season, know that my heart is with yours. This year was my first Christmas/birthday without my Grandpa Ralph, who passed away earlier this year in September.

I don’t always shoot film, but…

….. when I do I forget what’s on the roll.

hide n seek

I recently shared some of my digital photos from my Tulum trip on my Instagram. It took me the longest time to figure out how and when I would fit them into my feed because, you know, aesthetic *hard eye roll*
