I'd call myself a semi-pro. I have about 30 years shooting, all film, and have done well in galleries, shows, and publications.
I shoot for the joy of photographing; the camaraderie of fellow photographers; the magic of an image appearing in the developer tray; and the wonder of discovering old and alternate processes.
I spent the last decades of the 20th century photographing mostly color macro. When the digital revolution killed that market, I went back to B&W. I like to shoot old things--buildings, machines, people. I'm deeply into alt porocess--albumen, VDB, etc.
www.mossbloomstudio.com. It's in dire need of revision with current work.
I'd love to meet and work with fellow photographers in Sonoma County. And if there's anyone who's not gone totally digital, I'd love to share my darkroom.
I'm a retired engineer who likes to tinker. I'm a film photographer, shooting 4x5 and MF. I have what may be the best private darkroom in these parts, for both silver gelatin & alt process.
