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.

For today's featured image I returned to shooting in the old gun battery at Fort Casey. Two battery flashes in the interior allowed me to balance with the light coming into the outer room. This view is from the shell-rack rooms out toward a communication room. I used a digital camera to set the light ratios and then exposed on 35 mm TriX film for the B&W image.
