This site is still under construction and probably always will be. But there is a lot here to see.

The current big news is my conversion to digital printing. This is outlined in my latest newsletter Going Digital, Sort of . . .

Stanford University Press has placed my book on hold pending an upturn ing the economy. That's discouraging but I am continuing to do new work on it as new materials come to light.

I failed to mention in the latest newsletter that my work can be seen and purchased online at

My workshop series has been suspended until after the book is published, but thereafter I hope to resume it. Information on my past workshops is here for those interested. I would like to hear from those of you who would like to attend. Please send me an e-mail and sign up for the newsletters.

My work has already appeared in several magazines and you will find slightly revised versions of some of the articles here on my web site. Several new articles are in the planning stage and I will announce them in my newsletter. See also, Smokebox, N.N. #40, an article that is a preview of my upcoming book on the Nevada Northern Railway.

There is also information about print sales, my newsletter, which you can sign up for, my resume and my various photography exhibitions. New is a setup that allows you to make purchases of my prints by credit card or PayPal.

Come back soon and often as we are adding info on other workshops, photo galleries, magazine articles and more.
