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 2017-18 has been in the Waterfalls and Ghost Town areas, but I try to be open to all opportunities.

Today's featured image is from my July '18 trip to Idaho and Montana to shoot cars and trucks. This firetruck from nearby Heron, Montana, reigns atop a 40' high pedestal in a stone quarry in Eastern Idaho. I did several versions of this over two days with different lenses and films.  I like this one best, shot from half-way up the rock pile and including trees on the cliff to the left. It's on Kodak infrared film produced about 30 years ago. Please click on the image to see the gallery from that excursion, including some great chrome behemoths of the 1950's.

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