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 marks a return to my fascination with vintage motorcycles. This set of new images is from the Dreamcycle Motorcycle Museum in Sorrento, BC. Dreamcycle let me bring in a full lighting set-up and shoot for two days. The color images are from my digital camera as I tested the lighting and the B&Ws, as here, are scanned from the final 8x10 film prints.

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