Before moving to the Northwest, I had many opportunities to photograph in Asia, Europe and Mexico, as well as in my long-term home state of New Mexico. I work in all camera formats, but favor infrared and high-speed B&W films for interpretive images.  Nearly everything displayed here is based on printing in my own darkroom.

Please Browse the site using the button to the left (or top, for mobile). My work is organized as Landscapes, Motorcycles, and various side projects - Waterfalls, Ghost Towns, you name it. Most of my new work in 2017-19 has been in the Waterfalls and Ghost Town areas, but I try to be open to all opportunities.

Today's featured image is another play with the texture of the historic Reubel Farm barn here on Whidbey Island. I started driving there when the first patches of blue sky appeared, then enjoyed just enough sun-time to expose 3 sheets of film. On this occasion, with the afternoon sun angle, I could bring out some of the interior detail.

Please send your comments to john.olsen337@gmail.com. All of these images are available for purchase.
