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 the height of our local rhododendron season with a photo from the Meerkerk Gardens. Shooting under heavily overcast skies, I used the 4x5 Field View camera, TriX film and a 150mm lens.

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