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 2017-20 has been in the Waterfalls and Ghost Town areas, but I try to be open to all opportunities.

In today's featured image I return to the forest paths in our neighboring Ft. Ebey State Park. The trails are inviting, but hard to photograph with their extreme light-to-dark range, as well as depth of field challenges. This result uses  very high speed 35 mm film and takes advantage of partial cloud cover.
