The notes photographers write ourselves. 

As a photographer I take a lot of notes. Most are regarding print exposures and aren’t that interesting. Here’s one on a camera back that jammed that I later thought was a bit amusing.

I put up a dollar store white board in my Darkroom so I can keep track of ToDos. You might not think there’d be much to keep track of but some stuff you might forget until it bites you in the rear. Don’t want to get all excited to start a developing session only to realize there’s no

Leena Allure’s Burlesque at Rumbleville 2016


I’ve shot pinup with Leena Allure for a while now. She’s always awesome to work work with and she truly enjoys and embodies the genre. She picked up Burlesque dance a few years ago but this was the first time I’ve been able to see her perform at the new Rumbleville grand opening. Great work!

Skull Vodka Decanter

Skull Vodka Decanter print available!


Please ignore any dust, it comes from the scan and is really noticeable on dark backgrounds.

If you like Skull Vodka you might recognize this. A friend of mine had one and I just had to borrow it. 

Setup for the shot was pretty easy just a light tent with a black background. 

I shot this with a Graflex Pacemaker press camera with a Kodak Aero-Ektar lens, on some expired TXP320 film. Stand developed for 1 hour in Rodinal 1:100.

My son and I went and watched out home town team, the Saginaw Old Golds play The Capitals. I shots these photographs with a Canon A-1, using a Vivitar Series 1 70-210mm, on
