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 is a bouquet of Sea Thrift blossoms from the yard. I put a lens from the darkroom enlarger on my studio camera to shoot with 4x magnification on TriX 4x5 film. This is my final, for now, image in the "tiny blossom" series.

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