I shoot exclusively 35mm. Most of my old photos are not online as they have no digital versions, but I continue to shoot new works, of which get digitized and uploaded.

I also shoot no models, and do little post production a possible.(denoise, color correction, etc...).

Camera Bodies - Nikon on FM-2 and FM-10 as a backup/alternate

Lenses -(all fixed focal length, no zooms)\
Nikon Nikkor 50mm f/1.8
Soligor tele-auto 135mm f/2.8
vivitar wideangle 28mm f/2.5
Nikon Nikkor-Q.C 200mm f/4

All lenses have Tiffen UV protectors on them to prevent the blue wash in direct sunlight.

film - I shoot on kodak film for the most part.
right now:
Color - ektar 100, portra 400
BW- Tri-X 400, TMAX400

most of the older stuff is on gold 100/200/400 with a few rolls of 800
All black and white is on Tri-X 400.

As of june 2012, I'm going all porta400/ektar 100 as they are both excellent films that suit their respective niches well. 400 for evening, night, and late afternoon/twlight, and 100 for broad daylight. Look at the diffrence between the conusmer grade gold and the ektar/porta mix. its night and day.

Most time exposures are done on 100 speed film, except a few cases with 200.

I also have a yellow B/W filter, a 512 warming filter, and a contrast filter.


I am sorry to say, but earlier this year I lost my main body, and my 50mm lense, and even though I could find a new 50mm and continue to shoot on m backup, I just haven't been in the mood.

Staring at me was one last roll of film, that it took me months to actually work up the nerve to get developed, and on it where three shots, two of which were utter garbage I wouldn't put in a highschool scrapbook.

Submitted was a cleaned up one last shot of Kat's Deli, which unforntunately will be my last submission for the time being.

It was fun
