Looking for faces

I’m looking for people to photograph for a new project/book. Particularly interested in hearing from women 40 and up, but happy to hear from anyone with a bit of character.
Please send an email and include your rough location and a snap shot.

London extras

Since I don’t use any photography networking sites anymore, this blog and possibly the facebook page are the only places I put up pics that really don’t belong anywhere.. Here is one more from London last year.




I lead a private photography trip into Burma last year. It really is a beautiful country and wonderful for photographers.



End of the year has been very busy.. only now having a little time to plan things for next year.. Will be in Europe mid April, then perhaps NYC. Japan later in year and will lead a photo trip into Bhutan also.




Mamiya 6

From the first roll or 2. ┬áVery impressed with this camera. I’m no gear head but this is nice.. and compared to the rz67, much easier to lug around locations.
