A photographer since 1960, I was a photographer for the award winning student newspaper at the University of Miami. While there I was influenced by Wilson Hicks, former Picture Editor of Life Magazine After serving in the Army as a photographer, I returned to McMinnville and worked as a technical photographer

    This is magical, the water is impeccably captured and use of monochrome provides such a still atmosphere!!

    stunning image. bravo for keeping a family treasure working (and also for keeping that old bellows light tight.) the old gets pulled into the digital age. i appreciate the process you went through to get this image.

    cheers from a 4×5 shooter!
