Tsankawi was home for indigenous peoples in 15th and 16th centuries. Today the site is one of my favorites to explore, because it has less infrastructure from the forest service than a site like Bandolier. I’ve been to this place several times with a variety of gear and always been rewarded with interesting images. I’ve also been grateful that few people actually stop here. There are multiple caves that were used as dwellings and for storage. There are also petroglyphs and other signs of former inhabitants.

I’ve used a variety of cameras at this site including my Mamiya Technika, Mamiya Universal Press and Nikon D-850. As you’ll notice in these images, I’ve also played around with post-processing techniques on these images. If you are interested in a specific image, please contact me at the e-mail address below. As always, thanks for your attention.

Thanks for visiting this page. I would always appreciate feedback and you can send your comments to me at

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.

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.
