What camera / lens do you use?
Take a look at this page where I list all of my camera equipment.
Did you really delete all the pictures from your Instagram account?
First of all thanks for following my work for a long time! And yes, I did delete 2+ years worth of posts from my Instagram account. You can still find most of those shots in my color section.
I needed a fresh start. I had a lot of fun shooting all those pictures and traveling to all those places, but it wasn't my style. That's why I started over, to become the photographer I want to be.
Why film? Why???
Because it's cool, of course. But also, because I enjoy the process, I love my camera, it gives me a look and style I can't get with ditigal, I feel more inspired when I shoot film, and it makes me a better photographer in every sense.
This being said, I still shoot digital. But 95% of my new images are made on film.
Why B&W? Why???
Because I'm not trying to reproduce reality. Every image I make is an attempt at expressing myself and showing what that place, object, whatever, means to me. B&W is an excellent tool to achieve this.
Where should I go during my next visit to Oregon / Washington? Good drives / hikes?
