Camera Van comes to Spartanburg

Filed under: Photography — Tags: , , , , , — JW @ 3:25 pm

This just pulled up in front of my office at the Herald-Journal.  The Camera Van, created by Harrod Blank, has over 2,000 cameras, four working monitors and even has six functioning Canon EOS cameras wired via remote cables to a shutter button panel on the dashboard.

To the average passerby, this van is weird, but to a photographer and collector of antique cameras, this van is awesome.   Unfortunately, I had to get back to work or else I could have spent all afternoon talking to Harrod and exploring the features of the van.  However, I was able to hand him $20 for his book of Art Cars and snap a couple pics with my Blackberry.  Check out his website www.cameravan.com.  He will be showing his documentary film about Art Cars at the Chapman Cultural Center on Wednesday.

  3. Wow, that’s quite a van. It combines two of my favourite things: music and photography. Love it!
