The engagement photo session of Julie and Howard in the Studio. During our initial meeting, I found out that this couple got engaged on New Years Eve.

Shot using the Hasselblad with both cinestill color and Ilford black and white film. I like to find out about my couples- how they met, what they enjoy in life, to create something that is unique to them.

A few years back a Frenchman named Jacques-Andre Istel, bought some land in the desert to retire, he named the town after his wife, Felicia ( whom I was lucky […]

The Neon Museum aka Boneyard, in Las Vegas was the perfect time to experiment with Washi Film.

Halo-Chrome toner can be used with all RC and fiber-base papers. On glossy papers, it gives a mirror-finish, and on matte […]
