Dreaming of a White Christmas...in Hawaii

  I shot this image a year ago when I was in Hawaii.  I really enjoyed the holiday decorations.  People went over the top with decorations even re-creating snow by using white plastic on their front lawns.  I grew up around snow so I thought it was really funny.  It was the first time in my life that I was somewhere warm during the holiday season.  I shot this image using my original Diana and Kodak Portra VC160 film.

Newspace Member's Juried Show

   I had an image accepted into the Newspace Member Juried Show which opened tonight.  Karl and I went to Portland for the gallery opening and enjoyed seeing the show.  There was a wonderful variety of work shown. 
   This image was shot on Kodak T-Max 400 and printed in a traditional wet darkroom.

View of Mt Hood 1

   This image is from a newly started series called "Views of Mt Hood."  I love the many ways and places people choose to dipict Mt Hood.  Most of the images I have shot so far are murals where Mt Hood is somehow included.  Some of the murals are historical scenes, while others have Mt Hood included as part of a logo.  This one was painted on a wall in an industrial area.  My intention is to include some indication of location in all the images in this series.

Sun Circle

  Here is one of the color shots from my trip to the water park a few weeks ago.  This image also got accepted into the Blue Moon Camera Customer Show.  This was the first time I had brought film there to be processed and they did a wonderful job.  The color and density is printed well and the prints even have borders which is kind of cool.  And I didn't even know about the customer show.  If the person printing runs across an image that strikes them they set it aside and then all the employees decide whether or not to put it in the show.  Then at the end of the year they put them all up (last year had about 140 images) and they have a gallery opening and a show.  I had two images accepted so that was a little bonus when I went to pick up my film.

Water World

I had a ton of fun bringing my Holga to a huge outdoor water park a few weeks ago.  I shot five rolls of film in three hours and spent the rest of my time doing some of the slides and the wave pool.  I don't normally shoot alot of color film but I did do two rolls.  I will drop those off later this week and hopefully I got a few color images as well.

The Starting Line

   This image is part of my cyclocross series although I could probably do another whole series of "Dogs at Bike Races."

Tuesday, June 21, 2011


I've been printing whenever I can as I am hoping to put these together as a show.  Right now I am looking for places to hang my work.  I've contacted a couple local coffee shops and am considering asking a bike shop or two as well.

A New Direction (sort of)

     Last fall I took a photography class and as a result started in a (sort of) new direction with my on-going series of cycling photos using my Holgas and Brownie Hawkeye.  Instead of only photgraphing the actual race I have started photographing spectators and what happens before and after a race.  I feel like I am spectating spectators. 
    This whole series has been alot of fun.  I enjoyed going out and shooting every weekend last fall and I had alot of film to develop.  Since I develop and print all my own film I am very slow to post.  I don't have a film scanner or my own darkroom so sometimes it takes me awhile to get into Portland and print.  I think I will post one photo a week for now.  Thanks for looking and please feel free to comment or critque my work.

The 4th Annual Juried Plastic Camera Show

I've been so busy that I forgot to announce that I had two images accepted into The 4th Annual Juried Plastic Camera Show at Rayko Photo Gallery in San Francisco.  The top image has never been accepted into a show prior to this one.  I shot it using my Holga and Kodak 400 T-Max film.   The bottom image was the very first image I ever had accepted into a show about a year ago.  I shot it using my Brownie Hawkeye (with a flipped lens) using Kodak 100 T-Max film.  I develop my own film and do my own printing in a traditional wet darkroom.

Krappy Kamera XIII

     I'm excited to announce that I had this image accepted into the ever popular Krappy Kamera Show.  This is the big one, meaning it's the longest running toy and plastic camera show in existence.   The judges for the show were Phillip S. Block and Steve Rooney of The International Center of Photography in New York City.  I feel very honored to have had an image accepted.
    I shot this image last year when Karl and I were in New York City for the opening of last year's Krappy Kamera Opening.  The show runs from March 1st - April 2nd, 2011.  Here is a link to Soho's website.  They should have an on-line gallery of all accepted images shortly.  Click here to view Soho Photos Web Gallery.  Scroll to the bottom of Soho's page to view galleries.

I found out today that I had this image accepted into the "Holga, Out-of-the-Box" show.  I'm very excited and honored.  I shot this image this fall at a  Cycloross Bike Race in Portland, Oregon.  The first roll I shot I accidentally had my camera set on "Bulb" and the entire roll was way over-exposed.  There was one image that I thought had potentinal so I went out the next week and shot in a similar situation using a ND filter so as not to over-expose so much.  I was pleased with the results and am hoping to explore shooting more on "Bulb" while hand holding the camera.  Here is a link to the press release http://www.tccphoto.com/blog/?p=137
