Welcome to my blog

Blogging is going to be a new experience for me. I am putting the finishing touches on a new website design through BigFolio.com and this blog page will be opening the door for you all to follow me during my photographic wanderings. I am a professional photographer and art director in the Chicago area. My professional photography work is mostly done digitally but my fine art photography is done on film.

I have been shooting with antique cameras for the last year or so and am loving it. My main cameras are a couple of Rolleicords, a Mamiya 645 system and a Crown Graphic 4×5 camera. A lot of this blog will be about my adventures with these cameras and I hope you follow along.

In my next post we will get into why I am using film again and introduce you to the amazing Rolleicord camera. The little brother of the infamous Rolleiflex.

Until then, happy wandering.

  1. You struck a cord with me.I acquired my Rollicord in 1952,along with an Argus.
    Learned photo, and dark room skills in the navy, appreciate your comments about ” The lost art of photography”,and dark room skills with black and white.

    will follow your blog with interest and anticipation.

    • Hi Bill and welcome aboard!
      I will be posting a few more blogs related to the Rolleicord. It really is an amazing camera. Future posts will be around other manual cameras that I use as well but the Rolleicord is never far away and always loaded with film. Stay in touch.
