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 have worked in all camera formats, but favor infrared and high-speed B&W films for interpretive images.  Everything displayed here is based on printing in my own darkroom, except for a few recent scans of color negatives.

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 2017-21 has been in the Waterfalls and Ghost Town areas, but I try to be open to all opportunities.

Today's featured image is from a trip to England in1988. I printed the negatives years ago as traditional color prints but had no way to show them. I have scanned several of them for my Mystic England gallery recently. These were from predawn to sunrise on a frosty November morning with 35mm B&W film before sunrise and then 4x5" color negatives as the sun rose.  

All of the images here are available for sale, except for a few by agreement with collection managers. Please address questions or comments to john.olsen337@gmail.com.
