Branch Line Press presents
From 1965 through the early 1970s photography was my major pastime. Through high school and college I worked as a school newspaper and yearbook photographer, which provided film and many opportunities for photography. Music, politics, and railfanning were my other passions, and many of my photographs reflect these interests.

Technical Note: Nearly all of these photographs were taken with Pentaxes or a Nikon SP rangefinder 35mm camera, using lenses ranging from 35mm to 400mm. I almost always used Tri-X film for the black & white images and Kodachrome or Ektachrome for color.

NEW! Prints of all of my railroad and rock concert photos are now available for purchase through Branch Line Press. Presently, I am making only 8"x10" inch prints, although we hope to offer larger sizes in the future. I make all prints myself from the original negatives, using an Epson v-700 scanner and Photoshop, and then print them on a Canon Pixma printer. Unmatted prints cost only $12 apiece (plus shipping and handling); for an additional $6 your prints will come matted and ready to put into standard 11"x14" frames.

Brimfield Portfolio

Since 2007 nearly every summer I've visited the Brimfield Antique Fair, one of the world's largest flea markets. This portfolio attempts to capture the flavor of that event.
