Culver City, California

2018 has been a tough year. With both of my parents suffering from health issues, getting sick myself twice, the loss of a dog, and then the addition of a new puppy to the household, I haven’t been able to photograph as much as I would like. But despite all of that, I was able to make a handful of images that I’m quite proud of. These are my top nine for 2018 that all of you have picked. Thanks for the support. Here’s to a great 2019 for everyone!

Crowley Lake

Most people who drive to Mammoth will recognize this old shed. It can be seen from Highway 395 just south of Crowley Lake and sits in the most beautiful setting.

Lee Vining, California

I’m back home from my Eastern Sierra adventure where I spent the majority of my time south of Lee Vining up in the hills. I was fortunate to have a small storm on two separate days where it snowed and created interesting light. Boy was it cold!!!! I ended up shooting mostly black and white film on a variety of cameras, and it’ll be a few weeks before I’m able to show some images. For now, enjoy this collage.

Red Rock Canyon State Park

This image reminds me of a photograph by Ansel Adams, “Early Morning, Merced River, Autumn”. Both scenes are visible from the road, and just like Ansel with his image, I’ve driven by this location hundreds of times throughout my life. I’ve always wanted to photograph it, but the light was never quite right. However, on this winter day in November of 2013, the light caught my eye, and I couldn’t resist.

This was photographed with a Toyo 4×5 view camera on Kodak TMAX-400.

Culver City, California

Two years ago today, we lost our beloved dog, Wilma. She was the other half to Fred, who died many years ago. And yes, I named my pets after The Flinstones! Anyway, Wilma was the sweetest and happiest dog I’ve ever had, and will always be missed.

This portrait was photographed with a Speed Graphic and a Kodak Aero Ektar 178mm lens.
