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 start on a new project featuring hiking and biking paths in our local Ft. Ebey State Park. Over the years I've shot there many times, but recently I wanted to let the choices of the paths be my subjects, rather than traditional landscape views. I'm using an old 4x5 folding camera and Rollei infrared sheet film. It's taken years, but I think I've finally found a coherent theme to suit this fine recreational area.
