On Set, P/SL Medical Center


Lately, we’ve been doing some work for P/SL Medical Center here in Denver.  The idea is to get pictures of the nursing and patient care staff, and make info cards so that the patients can learn a little bit about their caretakers.  The initial feedback was so positive on the first 4 departments that we were called back in to do additional departments.  This week we found ourselves in the Bone Marrow Transplant unit.  Patients on this floor are very susceptible to illness, so much so that before you can enter or exit you have to pass through a hand washing […]

Rainy day.


The other day I got the urge to break out my view camera, and shoot a little 4×5 black & white film.  I love impromptu darkrooms (read: apartment bathroom).  Sure, shooting digital would have been easier and quicker… but it was rainy out- I needed something to do!  Plus, the feeling you get when you turn the lights on and inspect the film the first time is pretty unique. Our view just isn’t the same when the mountains are hidden by rain clouds…

Billboard Sighting

X-Rite ColorChecker Passport – First Impressions


I recently acquired a ColorChecker Passport from X-Rite Photo and had the opportunity to write up a review as a guest blogger for X-Rite.  The post can be viewed on their blog here.  Here is my review: As a photographer, a major focus of mine is consistency.  I want my clients to know what they can expect from me each time they select me for an assignment.  Color management is one of those areas that can often be overlooked when it comes to being consistent, but it is key. Enter the ColorChecker Passport from X-Rite.  This is now a vital […]

File, Print.


For me, File>Print just isn’t quite as rewarding as dipping a brush into chemistry, coating a piece of paper and exposing a negative to make a print.  I know I lose a lot of my friends when it comes to this point.  I have some sort of a weird disconnect.  Why would I want to spend 6-8 hours working on a print that more than likely will not come out the way I was hoping?  Honestly, I have no idea. Every “analog” print I view, whether it be in a gallery, museum, or even school, I seem to get a […]
