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, "Whidbey Bluff Trees," is appropriate after losing power two nights in a row. This particular shot is from November 2016 and reminds us that we are exposed to some seasonal winds here. All along the Bluff Trail at nearby Ft. Ebey State Park we can see these twisted and weathered witnesses to our winter winds. They've provided me with many hours of photographic exercise.

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