Back in December, I photographed doomsday prepper Braxton Southwick at his home in Salt Lake City for Men’s Journal. I wasn’t sure what to expect heading into this assignment but it turns out he was a totally normal(ish) suburban dad with a family and a stockpile of assault weapons and food in his basement. I have also never ever had any photo subject as down to try crazy ideas as this guy.  We did this shoot the day before newtown and there were tons of guns in every photo and it seemed like it would be in poor taste to use them at the time so I was glad that we shot these ridiculous cup o noodle photos…
