Film is expensive and I need your support to continue my 4x5 portrait projects.
Any help is appreciated. If you'd like to help, visit my Patreon Page, even a couple dollars help!!
New for 2018! As a dedicated film photographer using 4x5, medium format, and 35mm film, I have accumulated a number of scanners which make my workflow much easier while also being able to produce the highest quality scans. I am now offering these scanning services to you. Bulk 35mm and High Quality scanning of medium format, 617, and 4x5 film incliuding XPan now available.
This site is being revamped. Meanwhile, I have written a few posts of interest:
"My Encounter With Online Transphobia" describes how I and others were banned from an online photography community, simply because the moderators would not tolerate short descriptions of transgender people's life stories just because they are trans.
On a lighter note, "The Art of Engineering" is my review of the new Gibellini ACN 4x5 camera! Hand made in Italy, it is a functional tool that looks good while doing it.
I am a photographer interested in fine arts, documentary, portraits, ... well just about anything other than macros and sports.
In 2016, I am continuing with three portrait projects with large format 4x5 films. All 3 projects will result in book publications, and if possible, gallery shows.
In "Transformations:Cosplay", I am photographing cosplayers / media-genre costumers in costumes and in their "civilian attires".
In "Worldbuilders of Science Fiction and Fantasy", I am photographing genre writers, artists, and editors.
In "Hearts on Our Sleeves - Stories and Portraits of Transgender People", I am photographing transgender people.
