Welcome to my shop! I love to explore abandoned buildings and ruins, and try to document them as well as I can. Most of these places have a long history, but are left to rot usually due to the cost of asbestos, lead, etc. cleanup. I find them beautiful, and I love to see nature taking over these places. Exploring a place is always exciting and is something I enjoy very much. I see things that most people never will, so I hope with my photography that I can share some of these things with you.
Lately I have been expanding into the beauty of nature, and some of the fantasy images I see in my mind as well, and hope you enjoy these photographs also.

All my photos are printed by a professional photo lab on high quality archival Kodak e-paper. These are not inkjet prints done at home. Please allow time for processing. They will normally be sent out within a week, but may take up to two weeks. All photos are available in a variety of sizes - just convo me. Metallic prints are also available.

Additional policies and FAQs
My work is a labor of love. I adore what I do, but it is difficult and dangerous. Many of these abandoned places are full of asbestos, mold, rotting floors and squatters. I don't recommend urban exploration for the inexperienced.

I have many more photos not listed! If you are looking for something in particular, please feel free to convo me. Please join my facebook fanpage at http://www.facebook.com/ForgottenBeauty. I often post works in progress and the occasional coupon code.
