Thanks for viewing this group of images. This is the among the first of my new group image pages. Since it’s new I would really appreciate feedback. Also, of course some things may not work, and so it goes…

This group of images is from Monument Valley in Arizona. I went in early 2022. Images were made with my Nikon D-850 and my Mamiya Super 23. I usually refer to this as a Mamiya Press. I was using Ilford Delta 400 in the Mamiya. Harry Nez Jr. was my guide. He was fabulous.  Thanks so much for your continued attention!

As you might imagine I’d prefer that these pages don’t get filled with a great deal of text. If you’d like information about a specific image please e-mail me at and I’ll let you know what I know. Of course, if you have specific requests about an image you’d like to purchase please use the same address. If you’d like to go ahead and purchase an image, please use the Paypal link below and give me the browser link to the image and your shipping address.

I am also trying a couple of things that will give people an opportunity to support this work. While I am fortunate to have enough money to continue to do this work, some things are pretty expensive. For instance 11×14 film is hard to get and costs about $300 for just 25 shots and a 120 roll of Ilford Delta 400 is close to $9. I have put in a link to Roberts Camera/Used Photo Pro that may get me a few dollars. I’ve bought a bunch of my used cameras from Used Photo Pro. They’ve been great! Roberts, basically the same place, is one of my go to suppliers for film. When I was living in Indianapolis their store was just a couple of blocks from my studio. So, I know them well enough to really recommend them. If you want to help me out, please use the link below to check out their stuff.

These images are from my trip in 2023. In addition to pictures from the rim of the canyon there are quite a few from Hunt’s Meas. I used my Toyo 8X10 and Linhof Technika for many of the black and white images. These images are from my trip in 2022. They include a couple of pictures from Garden of the Gods and Canyon De Chelly.

I did a large show when I was still in Indianapolis called Courting Chaos. The link will take you to the pages which describe the work and its evolution. These images are, well, chaotic and many of them are nudes. I hope you’ll find it interesting.
