Color Prints

All limited editions are now printed as Aluma prints -- the highest quality prints available today. A process with unparalleled depth, color vibrance, and sharpness — perfect for my images. They have to be seen to be believed.

Black & White Prints

Black & white images are printed on either Hahnemühle Fine Art Pearl or Museo Silver Rag paper (depending on the image). Both are heavy fine art papers that look and feel just like traditional silver gelatin prints, but with the benefits of modern processes. Both black and white papers have a tested permanence rating exceeding 100 years*.

From Exposure to Print

The first time I saw the quality prints a large format camera can produce, I knew it was the photographic medium for me. My first large format system was a very bulky and aged 4”x5” monorail camera. My current camera is the Walker Titan 5”x7” XL (shown at right) — a very unique, handcrafted camera that fits my style of photography perfectly. Currently, about half of the images on my site were taken with the 4”x5” and the other half with the 5”x7” — with many more in the works from the 5”x7”.

My large format films of choice are Fujichrome Provia and Velvia transparency films. After the large format film is exposed and developed, I choose a select few to be professionally scanned in order to extract all the information contained in the film. With scanned images in hand, I use digital darkroom techniques to prepare the images for printing. Only traditional edits to color balance, contrast, dodging and burning, and cropping are done.
