Black & White

This is the selection of images I have available to print as of now, Summer, 2012. I have a large backlog of negatives and transparencies I'm working through and will be actively creating new images as time allows. Check back often, the selection will be updated often.

Most of the images shown are from "old school" medium and large format film cameras from the Forties and Fifties, the bulk of them were taken from 1985 to 1995. A lot of them are seeing the light of day for the first time since they were taken, they were put into storage for the day when the time was right for printing them. Well, the time, and the technology, are right, right now!

The actual printing is done on an Epson 4900 that uses a combination of pigmented inks and a special ceramic-coated paper I have chosen to achieve prints that are equal in every way to the darkroom prints of years past. The color prints have been excellent for some time but the black and white took some time for the printer manufacturers to perfect but the deep blacks and glowing highlights I worked for years to achieve in a dank, smelly darkroom are now are a reality. Superficially, this is an inkjet printer but bears so little resemblance to the average home printer that the prints even have a name,

What I'm doing is the very definition of a one-person operation: I took the photos, I decide which of the thousands of images I have are the very best, scan the transparency or negative, load the paper in the printer and ship the finished print to you. I really can't think of any other way of doing this that will absolutely maintain the quality without breaking the bank.

Most of the images have never been named but I can tell you the location and circumstances surrounding each one. Ordering is simple, just make a note of the number below the image you are interested in. I don't have prints in stock, the print you order will be created for you, by me.

Pricing: I'm basically offering prints in two sizes, 16" and 12". The images are in three different shapes, in 16" you get 16x16", 16x20" and a few are 16x24". In 12", they yield 12x12", 12x15" and 12x18". To keep it simple:

16" prints - $350

12" prints - $280

If you have a special size you need, let me know, I can easily create the perfect size for you. Smaller prints can also be done, let me know what you need. I don't offer framing but there are a couple of the best framing shops around in my area and can make the referral or maybe even go with you to choose your frame.

I don't have an online shopping cart set up yet, so make a note of the number below the photo and email me and we'll take it from there. Payment can be cash, check or PayPal. If you are local and would like to take a look at these and my other prints, just let me know, I'm certain that we can find a time that works for both of us. I'm usually available, by appointment, from 12-4 most every day, including weekends.
