Announcement   A lot of what I shoot is what I call "found art". I never leave home without at least one camera and I shoot at least one photograph every day. I rarely plan my photography, preferring instead to find beauty and inspiration (not always the same thing) in the world around me.

I prefer film to digital, although I use both, depending on the situation. I like high end cameras, toy cameras and arcane cameras. I use experimental techniques and I believe photography is most effective when it looks, not like reality but like a heightened version of reality. That said, I very rarely enhance my images digitally. It's much easier and more gratifying to try and capture the magic in the camera rather than trying to add it later. Sometimes the cameras and techniques I use have undesirable artifacts as well as desirable ones. Since I use toy cameras, old cameras, pinhole, TTV and other "low fi" cameras and techniques, you will occasionally find scratches, dust (particularly in TTV work) and other "imperfections" in my work. I typically leave these untouched as they are part of the authentic, handmade product and experience.

All prints are made with Supra Portra Endura or Metalic Endura archival paper which is guaranteed for 100 years if stored in daylight and 200 if stored indoors.

All prints are made to order. Meaning, there's a 24 to 48 hour lag time during which I am making your print, before I can mail it to you.

All prints are done under my supervision and to my specifications by the best professional photo lab in my area. I do most of my work with film, partly due to it's somewhat less homogenized qualities, compared with digital. I use expired film whenever possible, I cross process slide film and try to create something timeless and unusual. Any slubs or "flaws" you see in the image on your screen, will be present in your print. I don't create "perfect" work, I create honest and heartfelt work.

That said, I print on some of the best archival paper (guaranteed for 100 years in sunlight, 200 years if kept inside) available and I make sure every print is free from printing error (streaks, color bleeds, etc..) and looks as absolutely beautiful as possible.

Additional policies and FAQs
Q: Do you manipulate your images with Photoshop or some other editing program to get your "effects"?

A: No. I use Photoshop to adjust levels, if needed. Mostly I try to achieve everything in the camera, using exposure, chemical processing, composition and luck.


Q: If I buy in volume, will I get a discount?

A: Define "volume". She short answer is "no" because my costs are the same, regardless. However, if you have a special need with a high volume (50 or more), contact me and we'll try to work something out. I'm not being specific because my own costs change as the world around me changes.
