My first foray as a curator opens on May 7, 2015 at the Martyr Sauce Gallery.  It’s a group show idea I’ve been batting around almost since I moved to Seattle.  It’s obvious why landscape photography is big in the Pacific NW, no one will disagree that this part of the country is blessed with…

Images in color – all photos taken with Holga 120N and Portra film     Normally I don’t post digital work here, but one of my favorite photos came about when I only had my digital SLR on me.

I recently spent a few weeks in Europe, taking both digital and analog cameras with me.  It’s not the first time I’ve traveled with both, but the first time I really was aware of my approach to using either one.  With digital I found myself very stream of consciousness – shooting without necessarily thinking.  When…

Social media often gets a bad rap as a necessary evil, but thanks – specifically to Twitter – I have discovered a global film photography community I couldn’t have engaged with otherwise.  Not sure how I stumbled upon this group of film fanatics, the Film Shooters Collective, but between Tumblr and FB we came together…

I discovered today that one of my photos received an ‘Honorable Mention’ at the Prix de la Photographie, Paris (PX3) ‘Altered Images’ competition.  Once again, I’m fascinated by what image the judges chose.  The joy/pain of a jury show is the selection process can be so subjective. Cows are such patient photography subjects.  These lovely…

One of the best things about the total deal I got on my Mamiya 645Pro was the polaroid back that was included.  I figured at some point I’d buy some polaroid film and try it out, but it wasn’t until I moved to Seattle and discovered Rare Medium (a store/gallery that specializes in all things…
