I’m interested in casual/hobby photography, walkabout, documentary, nature, and portraits. I almost exclusively develop and scan my own film these days. In the past I've also used The Darkroom in San Clemente, CA or Full Circle Photo in Baltimore, MD.

I also really enjoy collecting the camera gear! My current rotation:
Nikon 35mm SLRs (FE and FA)
Nikkor AI-s prime lenses: 35mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.8 “pancake” version, and 85mm f/2
Flash: Nikon SB-22s speedlight
Point n Shoots: Nikon L35AF, Olympus XA2

Some other cameras I've shot and really enjoyed: Canon Rebel G, Nikon FM2n, Nikon FE2, Nikon F3, Nikon FG, Nikon FE, Nikon F100, Nikon F-601M Olympus 35 UC, Yashica T3 & T4, Minox 35 GT

Whatever C41 color dev kit I can find in stock… | XTOL, ID-11, HC-110 or Rodinal for black & white film
Scanning with mirrorless Fuji X-E3 and AF Micro Nikkor 60mm f/2.8D.
Converting negatives with Negative Lab Pro
Most of my older shots were scanned with an Epson v550.

Favorite film stocks I’ve tried:
Color: Vision3 250D, Fuji C200, Portra 160
B&W: Ilford HP5+ and Kentmere 400 (especially pushed), Arista EDU Ultra 100 and 200 (Fomapan 100 and 200), Kodak Tri-X 400
