I attended an early morning AIGA meeting titled “Coffee for Creatives” at Elemental Coffee recently. When I walked in I met Bob, a homeless man selling the Curbside Chronicle. The Chronicle is a publication made specifically to help the homeless make a bit of money. They can buy copies and then sell them on the […]
I am an Oklahoma-based editorial and commercial photographer and widely published writer, and a long-time IT networking professional. I like to tell stories about real people doing unusual things. I like working on complex networking projects. I like to exercise. A lot. You can read and view my stories about farmers, ranchers, electrical linemen, motorcycle riders, fishermen, hunters, IT professionals and technologies, and a multitude of others right here on my web site and in dozens of local, regional and national magazines.
I was going back through my archives looking at old film and decided to scan these medical images I took way back in 1998. At that time I had only been into photography for a scant 2 years but had already moved from a 35mm Minolta to a Nikon film camera to an RZ-67 medium […]
I decided to start shooting color again with my film cameras and started with my Pentax 67 and Kodak Portra 160. I used to shoot a lot of Kodak E100 slide film when I first started with photography. I used a Jobo processor to process my own E6 slide film and the occasional C41 negative […]
Clyde Percy brought his rebuilt Harley to Edmond’s Railyard bike night last week. It was a very unusual green with some nice custom work on the paint and engine. I talked to him for a while then asked if I could photograph him and his bike. He was patient while I set up the camera […]
I took this photo of my riding friend Matt Flaming on his KTM 790 Adventure motorcycle at a recent “bike night” in downtown Edmond. Matt is the resident GPS guru for our dual sport motorcycling group, having snatched that title from my hands over the past couple of years. He volunteers for a lot of […]
For years I have wanted to camp while on a bicycle trip. My neighbor Geoff Detrich and I finally hooked up and rode from Edmond to Lake McMurtry on gravel roads. I camped overnight and rode home in strong headwinds and deep mud.

The ultra-large 4x5 negative sure does have a way of reminding me of how I messed up. This photo looks great on the screen, but … [Read More...]
When I shoot large-format film, I never know if I got the shot until much later, often days later. It is so easy to chimp wiht a … [Read More...]

Me and a 50
I like to simplify things when I can. I learned in the Information Technology world that simpler is easier to manage and secure. The more complex things get, the more security holes and problems that can arise. The same goes with my camera system. While I have some pretty awesome zoom and telephoto lens, as […]
Sometimes when I am just hanging around with family or wanting to have fun with my photography, I will grab my all-time favorite camera – a Nikon F3 – and put on one of my favorite lenses – a rare manual focus Nikon 50 1.2 lens. This lens is just an incredible hunk of glass, […]
I love shooting with my Nikon F3 film camera on good old TMAX-100 film. It is nearly impossible to replicate the look of actual film from a digital image in my opinion.
