Some Recent Prints

Been off the blog train for a while, that’s not to say that I haven’t been shooting, quite the opposite. So far 2015 has been a very busy year, look for additional updates in the coming weeks as I try to get weekly updates going again.

In the mean time, here is a selection of images taken this spring. They are photos of original black and white prints I made in the darkroom, but was somewhat too lazy to actually scan them for the blog. Enjoy…

More BigZona Burlesque

mahoney_20130418_97801About a month ago I posted some photos from the first BigZona Burlesque get together. Last night the bZb had their first public preview performance. In addition to some more head-shots (the crew has grown quite a bit) there are a few images from the dress-rehearsal (mine will be up soon). Head over to their Facebook Page, and check out some of the beez… Update::The dress-rehearsal photos are up on the bZb facebook page here…

Coffee Portraits or Land of The Lost Roll pt. 4

On a recent cleaning/organizing binge I discovered several lost or forgotten rolls of film kicking around my room. Here is  a short series taken from one of those rolls…

I love coffee more than just about anything. Sharing it with friends is part of the experience that appeals to me. Here are some friends I shared coffee with sometime early last fall.

Despite the metadata the slide show tries to provide, these were all shot on my Nikon FM on Ilford Pan F+.

Land of The Lost Roll pt.3…FireFly Portraits

What once was lost, now is found…again…This summer I attended and photographed the FireFly Music Festival near Flagstaff, Ariz. While there I played a little with my new-at-the-time Mamiya RB67. One of the many thing that inspired my curiosity at FireFly, was the diversity of people in attendance. Everyone from school teachers to quasi-homeless ‘traveling’ types, and everyone in between. I wanted to shoot a few portraits, so I did…Click on an image to enter the slideshow…

Found this lost roll of FujiChrome in the strangest spot…exactly where I should have left it…Although I could have/wish I had shot many more, patience and weather did not permit this happening…perhaps next year…

 

Deserted Desert Drive

While on a recent trip into the California desert via State Rt. 62, I shot a few photos. Strange things exist in the California desert, here area  few of them…

Once again, disregard the pesky metadata provided by the slide show…all images were shot on my trusty Vivitar 35ca (which is more and more my go to travel camera) with Lomography XPro Chrome 100 film…

‘Best’ of 2012

Here on the last day of 2012 I have compiled a ‘Best’ of reel (I use the term ‘best’ loosely) These images represent my creative journey this year, and while I may have shot better work, these are some of my favorites. Click on an image to enter the slide show and enjoy…they are in approximately the following order…compositions, disco-tec, studio portrait, location portrait, critters…

Some People I know

Developed two new rolls yesterday. The following were shot quickly, usually just as the subject became aware their photo was being taken. I have been getting into the flow of my new camera (Nikon FM) we operate fairly smoothly and quickly together. Without further adieu, some friends… Continue reading

July 4th in Flagstaff

I was out-and-about shooting the 4th of July parade and associated festivities this morning here in Flagstaff, Ariz. Rather than discuss each photo, I will let them stand for themselves, hit the first one to enter the slide-show.

The morning started with a 5 mile fun run (seems like a contradiction to me), followed by the parade and concluded with a good-old-fashioned hotdog eating contest…

My Mamiya Mit Mid Morning Meridian

Stopped by the Photo 285 summer session class at Northern Arizona University for a few days this week. The students were shooting in the studio all week and I hung out, helped a few students and shot a little too. Recently I have been on a natural light kick, so in keeping with that tradition I put down a few frames of Stormy outside the Communication building and in a stairwell with floor to ceiling windows… Continue reading

Just Another Stranger Portrait

While shooting the monthly Visual Collective Free PhotoBooth, I captured a quick portrait of this gentleman. He was standing in our backdrop but didn’t realize it, so I ditched the pocket wizard, opened up to f/3ish and grabbed some nice light provided by open shade.
