I've always loved working with film. There is something to be said for spending time in a darkroom and adjusting light on paper to get the desired result.
With decades of experience working with film and the analog process, I began seriously taking fine art photographs in 2016. Working with multiple camera formats ranging from medium format to 4x5, 5x7 and 8x10, I create large negatives which give extreme resolution, tonal range, and clarity.
Because each print is made by hand, they are all different. Most all of them require me to manipulate the tone and it takes time to get a fine art print.
I shoot mainly natural locations and landscapes. Hiking around with a camera and becoming aware of your surroundings is a wonderful experience. And, after you take the photograph, processing the negative, and finally, creating a large print, it is extremely gratifying.
