August 2016 Postcard Swap


The August Postcard swap is now live! If you would like to participate fill out the form below. We are are exchanging postcard sized prints of our original photography. Both film and digital photography are welcome! Fill out the form and you will be matched up with a person to send a postcard to, and you will receive a postcard in return (from a different person).

This past month I finally made it back over to Newspace’s darkroom and made some prints of a pinhole photo I made at the Slowing The Selfie opening. I was really pleased with how they came out and really enjoyed the process. I have really missed the darkroom. I should make a point of going back at least once a month.

I’ll be sending one of the prints out this month for this month’s postcard swap.

Self reclining on couch – #pinhole self portrait


This afternoon I will be driving up to the Seattle area for the opening of Slowing The Selfie , a photography show of pinhole self portraits by PNW pinhole photographers. Three of my photos will be in that show. I am very, very honored to be a part of it. Also looking forward to hanging out with some good friends.

The show is at VALA Eastside in Redmond, WA and the opening is tonight from 6-8 pm. Do stop by if you are in the area!! More info can be found on their website.

This is not one of the photos in the show. This is a self portrait from my “Sheet A Day” project (in which I shot one sheet of 4×5 film a day in my Zero 45).

I’ve been struggling with jet lag the past few days and this was me, basically, at 8:00 pm last night. I passed out hard.

Slowing The Selfie


I am very honored to be participating in a photography show with some of my friends and fellow pinhole photographers. The show is called “Slowing The Selfie” and it will feature pinhole self portraits. The show will be up in May and June and it will take place at VALA Eastside in Redmond, WA.

If you are in the Seattle area check it out! There will be an artist’s reception on May 6th, which I will be attending, so do stop by if you are in the area. Here is more information from the Facebook event page:

Using pinhole cameras and film, a group of regional photographers explores the juxtaposition of the modern day “selfie” and one of the oldest forms of photography. This project includes an art installation and series of free to the public events at the VALA Art Center.
