Nolan Hall’s “Peregrines” – Photographer Nolan Hall on his Los Angeles solo show

He was always like, “Maybe we could do it at this time? ” and I’d say, “Ahh I can’t, I’m going to be in Hawaii for two months, I just have zero time” He hit me up right before the Triple Crown and asked me if the beginning of April would work.

I like to experiment here and there, whether it’s different techniques or methods, or whether that’s how I operate the camera or how I alter the chemistry when I’m developing shots.

A lot of this show isn’t super new, but it’s stuff that’s never really been up for sale. I don’t know.

We caught up with Hall as he was putting the final touches on his show—which premieres April 2nd, at Los Angeles’ Paul Loya Gallery—to talk about creative inspiration, what unnerves him, and how deadlines can miraculously work in your favor.

That’s interesting, because whenever you’re shooting digital or when you get your film back, and you’re going through your shots, you have the tendency to disregard details in the moment.

Nolan Hall plans to split the 20 or so shots from his new show, Peregrines, nearly down the middle — nine black-and-white shots, and 11 colored shots. Or, vice versa.

Why didn’t I catch this before? ” That’s true for a lot of photographers, but you’re connected with the actual moment of what was happening, where you shot the photos or what state of mind you were in, rather than just seeing an image when you know nothing about it and are examining it out of context.

I’ve definitely had shows where it’s right up to getting pieces back from the framer, stuff is being hung.

In-between a hallmark North Shore winter and a busy travel season managing the Vans team, it was almost a miracle that he could focus on putting a show together, Hall says.
