Some Shows

Saturday, July 1st, 2017

Wow…sorry that it has been just shy of a full month since my last post. I’ve been busy. Actually, I’ve been traveling. I just returned from Peru. No time and little internet access while I was on the road. I’ll have some of those photos to post here soon. But, meanwhile, I want to tell […]

The Environmental Portrait

Friday, August 19th, 2016

Two of my photographs have been selected by the juror for the next show, “The Environmental Portrait,” at The Darkroom Gallery in Essex Junction, Vermont. It’s always a pleasure to have my work in one of the great shows that this gallery does. You can view the entire show at the link above. Or, better […]

Some Instants Before

Tuesday, April 5th, 2016

Before Areia and I went to Matthiessen State Park to shoot we took a bit of time and did some instant photos using my Speed Graphic and some of the last of Fuji’s 3000 speed black and white film. I’m going to really miss that film. It has a tonal quality that is unique. These […]

Gallery Show in Vermont

Thursday, February 4th, 2016

I was just notified that one of my photos has been selected by juror Peter Turnley for the upcoming show “Culture” at the Darkroom Gallery in Essex Junction, VT. This is an old favorite of mine taken way back in 1969 when I was working at the Newark (Ohio) Advocate as a photographer and spending […]

Looking at Old Stuff

Sunday, December 7th, 2014

In case you are interested, I’m on Ello and I’ve been posting a lot of my old stuff on there. It will be my social media site for my photo work. Recently I’ve been posting my “docunude” series that I shot about 10 years ago. It’s environmental nude portraits of most of the models I […]

A few more photos of Athena, this time taken with a “real” camera, my D7000 and my 50mm f/1.4 lens. I like that lens for portraits. These were shot stopped down one stop to f/2. It’s nice and sharp there, with a shallow depth of focus.  The originals of these, of course, are in color, […]

Instant Athena

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014

I’ve long enjoyed the 3000 speed instant film…both the Polaroid stuff and the Fuji copy. I was working on a project using that film when Fuji announced it was discontinuing it. That was a sad day. I have a stash of it and I’m continuing to work with it until it is gone forever. The […]

Instant Kelsey

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

  One of the truths of photography is that whatever materials you use and love will be gone, usually within 20 years or so. Nothing lasts forever in this world. I’ve seen this happen many times over my 50 years in photography. None of the chemical photo papers that I used are made today. Tri-X […]

The show’s theme is XY; Masculinity in Photography.  My photo was also selected for an honorable mention. I took this photo sometime […]
