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 2017-20 has been in the Waterfalls and Ghost Town areas, but I try to be open to all opportunities.

The featured image today is another treasure found through the Washington Vintage Motorcyclists club. The  BMW R90S switched from the venerable Bing carburetors to Del Ortos for more sporting power. Since they're right out where you can admire them, I just had to do the detail shot.

Please send your comments to john.olsen337@gmail.com. All of these images are available for purchase. If you visit  Whidbey Island, please come by Penn Cove Gallery in Coupeville, WA.
