Project “I Am” I am looking for volunteers, both men and women, (20 years and over) for a portrait project. The project, aimed at showcasing a diversity of people and at the same time their individual persona. “I AM”. This will involve you which can introduce a particular place that lends itself to you emotionally, a place in your home, out in nature, indoors somewhere private or public.

A little change on presentation today. Another beast that I have been using is the Omega View 45D. It has been quite an adjustment having been alternating between these two favorites, ( pinhole camera and Omega 45D large format).

I originally wanted to share this news with the addition of an open invitation to the studio on […]

In the month of March 2017, I had posted a video of portrait photographer Luis Plácido López Caballero which showed him going through his whole creative process from start to finish when he photographs a portrait using a large format camera. Whenever I view this presentation, it makes me want to do just the same. I invite you to take a look at his website. So here I am six months later taking in that inspiration and putting it in […]
This is a video that I had posted a while back on Facebook. Looking forward to really diving into large format photography.My plan is to focus on landscapes and of course self-portraiture. I really enjoyed the music, detail and presentation of this video. I hope you enjoy it too.
