Why I Do What I Do.

“To photograph: it is to put on the same line of sight the head, the eye and the heart.”
:Henri Cartier-Bresson

I still shoot film because I appreciate the original craft of photography and I prefer the results film offers. Part of a dying breed, I love the authenticity of something labor-intensive and that requires sensitive focus.

I do use digital as well - always a time and a place for everything! And I like being able to have a lower price point on digital, because much less labor and time is involved when not doing custom prints in the darkroom.

Customer Service
I guarantee the quality of my work 100%. Just message me if you have any questions! Darkroom prints are one of a kind, museum-quality archival photographs. High resolution digital photographic prints are printed using a state-of-the-art printer and are printed on photographic paper.

    I shoot mostly using natural light. I don't heavily edit my work unless it's as an artistic treatment for a special project. I studied photography at UT Austin and was classically trained in the darkroom, using a manual analog camera.

Payment
If you are paying by money order or check, please be aware that I will not ship items until payment has cleared.
Shipping
Please allow 1-2 days for processing your order and about 2 days for shipping, so around 4-5 days for arrival from the time you place your order.
Refunds and Exchanges
The images you see in my shop are a pretty spot-on representation of the actual work I have produced. There may be slight differences in tone (light and dark) and color saturation because images tend to vary in appearance on different computer monitors. If the representation I see varies to a certain degree, I always note that in the description of the item.

Excellent customer service is extremely important to me and I suspect that anyone who orders a photograph from me appreciates my craft; however, if you are unhappy with an item for some reason, I will refund the cost of the item but do kindly require that you pay shipping costs, a restocking fee of $20, and pack the item securely to ship back to me. You have 2 days from the date the item arrives at your address to notify me of a return.

If an item is damaged during shipping and you want to return it for a refund, I will gladly do that at no cost to you.

Please contact me before returning any items so that I am aware of and can plan for the situation and can assign a RMA # to include with the return.
Additional policies and FAQs
I have a huge inventory so please feel free to request specific images. If you have a custom request and an item is not yet made, processing time varies. I will give you a time frame when you contact me with your original request.
