Request for a Spokane Ghost photographer
Yes, you read that request correctly. In fact, this request came from the couple I ran into in 2007/2008 at two local sites. The couple was part of a group of
I do not know the couples name, as I thought I had saved their emails from two years ago. Apparently I will have to wait until I get further emails from them, perhaps in May of this year.
Here is what I know. In Spring and Summer of this year, the group they belong to (
All of this strikes me as a bit unusual, to get a request for photography during some local ghost hunts. This request came after I was approached by two ghost hunters in the Rosewood Post Office this week. The Spokane Ghost hunters had planned for a visit to Holy Cross, and had stopped by USPS at Rosewood where they saw me checking my PO Box. I had not seen the two ghost hunters since I shot photos at
At any rate, I asked the two Spokane Ghost hunters if I could find someone else, since I was not interested in joining a Spokane Ghost hunter social network. Is this a serious request? I have no idea, but why they would ask me to shoot images for their group? This contact at Rosewood Post Office came out of the blue.
Over the years, I have met a number of Spokane Ghost hunters. Until this week, I have always talked with them on location where I was shooting Spokane Night Scenes. Every single one of the people was very nice, and it was very interesting to speak with them about their activity. I don’t think that all of the people I met at the various sites were members of the same group, but perhaps they are now.
Even though I declined the request, I asked them if it would be okay to find someone else. They said “that would be fine.” My plan is to have the Spokane Ghost hunter group contact any interested photog directly, so that I am “off the hook.” I am thinking they might not do anything at all until May.
Maybe I grew too cynical in all of my years of policework. I responded to so many calls of bumps in the night, etc, that perhaps any interest waned years ago. I remember a call for service we got years ago, regarding apparitions in someone’s home. Two of us at Spokane PD were tasked to spend two entire shifts in this home to see if we could arrest any intruders. We never saw any. Yet, after each shift, the homeowners called in that apparitions appeared within minutes of our leaving each day. My partner in this project was as suspect about the entire thing, as much as I was.
So, I will pass along to any interested photographers, a potential photo op this Spring.
