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 my annual fern shot in Ft. Ebey State Park. I had a couple of frames left on a roll of Rollei infrared film and the ferns were in great form, so I went for a hike to the nearby park. Rodinal development brought the contrast in the dappled sunlight down to a printable range and the finished print is an inviting representation of the hiking trail.
