Black and White Miniatures (Finished Portfolio)

There is something quite rewarding in seeing how a body of work comes together, especially one that was created over multiple outings, and a span of 4 months.

New “Point and Shoot”

Got a new “point and shoot” today…quite excited to shoot with this little beauty!

My goal is to have a camera on me ‘at all times’. I have not done this for years, and would like to give it another go.

Voigtlander Bessa R3A ~ 40mm 1.4 lens.

Blue Guitarist

Found some slides from about 15 years ago. Had some friends that were pretty deep into the Metal scene in Seattle. This particular show was amazing…and very loud.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

What do these images and the new movie “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” have in common?

I took these photos last April using the same camera that Sean O’Connell (Sean Penn) was seen using in the movie…an old Nikon F3.

Black and White Miniatures

High altitude landscape photography can be incredibly rewarding, however, it does not come easy. One main challenge is the fleeting light during sunrise or sunset. Generally this is the only time I photograph landscapes (the quality of light is at its best during these times).  On average, I have about 2 to maybe 15 minutes to capture this brilliant display of color and light.
The following collection is a different story.

Lupine in the Wind

“Lupine in the Wind”

Shot this in mid June. The Lupine were incredibly beautiful this year.
Roughly a 40 second exposure on Velvia 50


Baldy Reflection

Well hello everyone!

Its been about a month since my last post. Been busy with photography lessons/workshops and manning the gallery.

I haven’t shot much in the last 6 weeks, but I did get out to capture this nice reflection of Mt. Baldy not long ago.

Shot on a Mamiya 7ii, 43mm lens, Velvia 50, minor dodging and burning in Lightroom 5, no color enhancement whatsoever…one of the many reasons I still shoot film

Hope you all are having a great Summer!.

Summer Images

The wildflowers here in Crested Butte are having a fantastic year. If you have the means to do so, I highly recommend making a trip out to any one of the many flowering meadows. Its a beautiful sight.

Images from Thailand: Accepting what is

Images from Thailand – Accepting what is
This Black and White series from Thailand below came about due to a few unforeseen factors and mistakes…I did not “get to know” my new film (velvia 100)  before leaving on this trip, which is especially important when doing very long exposures. I usually shoot Velvia 50, which I know quite well but wanted to try a different version. Velvia 100, so I had read, is better for doing long exposures.  Film can act funny the longer one exposes it to light, such as strange color shifts, tons of grain, or exposure difficulties, to name a few. Velvia 100 had all of those strange shifts and more.

Thailand Bike Tour ~ Spring 2011

Return to Thailand
Spring Bike tour 2011
My wife Susan and I will be flying to Thailand this Tuesday for a tour of some of Thailand’s most secluded and beautiful beaches. April and May is a great time to visit as it is “off season” there, it’s less crowded, and cheaper. It is also the hottest time of the year, but being on a bike tends to cool you down.

Alley Doors ~ Crested Butte, Colorado

Alley Doors Crested Butte Colorado
During December and January of this winter season, I wandered through the alleys of Crested Butte, finding and photographing the unique and beautiful doors that grace the back roads of this picturesque town. When I first began looking for these doors I could only find a few at a time, but the more I walked around, I started to see them everywhere. I was taken with the colors, textures, and characters of these doors.  Coupled with the falling snow, they created a wonderful scene.
