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 recent trip to Idaho and Montana to shoot cars and trucks. On the way I camped east of Colville, WA at the abandoned radar dome site. Arriving in the late afternoon, I couldn't resist the brilliant new wall decorations. I'm working on the car and truck film now and will post those as I get further. (Note: Broken foot will delay this - please look again in late September.)

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