  Two new additions to the uneditioned print offerings, all of which are on sale through the holidays. The top image was made in 2014 on a trip in eastern WA with Jeff Corwin, along one of those tiny roads that yields rewards unforeseen. This is one of 3 or 4 5×7 large format exposures [...]

  After an extended break, this is the first offering in several months. It won the facebook poll as favorite of three. I have been photographing various Begonias around our front door for years, from cell phone snaps, film, and to this approach. This is a digital capture, made with an older Zeiss/Contax lens, very [...]

I’ve let this lag this year due to other priorities, and reconsideration of it’s continuation. For now, I’ve extended the discounted prices began last holiday season through August. There has been interest and sales, and I still like the idea of it. However maintaining it and updating it monthly has not been warranted, I’m thinking [...]

  I’ve been scanning years of negs for the site, the first updates are more PNW landscapes over the years, as well as quite recent. Gallery six has been filled out and gallery seven put up. Additional galleries of other work will be added in the coming days. It’s a lotta darn images!  

I’m hoping to use this uneditioned section as a way to show and provide a variety of work, some of which came about unexpectedly. In some ways the 90′s were the most creative period in commercial photography, the economy was good, the clientele often younger and edgier. We saw a lot fads like cross processing, [...]

I’ve wanted to do this for years, seemes everything takes a long time in my world! I take pictures constantly, with anything I have from phone to view camera. I like a lot of these pictures and have decades worth. If they don’t become a part of an editioned body of work it doesn’t mean [...]

  Pacific Northwest Galleries 4, 5, and 6 have now been added to the site. Though I have been making many more photographs, and continue to scan older negatives, updating the site always seems to take a back seat. This will be the first work added since 2012, and there is much more to come.

Three years ago I had a holiday print sale of an image that many people had seen and enjoyed, but was not part of a limited edition or larger project. Therefore making it available for purchase for gifts or whatever, unlimited, at a very reasonable price worked out very well. Again this year I have [...]

On September 7th, “Travelers” opens at the Seattle Art Museum Gallery. Recently they decided to expand the show to include a landscape section, and I was invited to have a presence there. I’m not sure what additional artists, including myself, have been added not yet shown on the website, but I will update this information [...]
