What photo equipment do you shoot with and do you have a website to share?

nikon d40 pocket point/shoot canon SD1200 little fugi

Favorite travel locations you've been to or would like to visit?

I am a homebody -- I shoot black and white street photography mostly in the city - my shots a love letter to this city that now, like my native Seattle, owns my soul

What are you hoping to get out of this group? (Be as descriptive as you'd like)

the social aspect of sharing with others who also love photography plus the group allows me more freedom and a safe venue to move around the city in areas I may not find myself and - the group provides a safety zone I do not have wandering alone

Do you like to explore new places and meet new people? (Be as descriptive as you'd like)

I like to explore new places in the city, new neighborhoods where finding interesting faces and differing lights/shadows I can get shots that in a way honor my subjects by capturing the real elements and emotions of their lives, their joys, their sorrows and I like to meet new people who share or at least understand these concepts

Who are your favorite photographers?

John Free, Bresson, Doreathea Lange


I do black and white street photography, no photo shop, no manipulation trying to capture irony, emotion and humor in the moment hoping to honor my subjects (no drunks in the gutter kinda stuff). Yeah, ok sometimes I do shoot my grand kids, my dog !
