Each archival gelatin silver print is made by hand using traditional black and
white darkroom techniques. John uses his own synthesis of techniques taught
by Ansel Adams, John Sexton, and Fred Picker for both creating the photographs
and producing traditional black and white silver prints. Favorite locales for
dramatic photographs have included Owens Valley and the Mammoth Mountain area,
Joshua Tree, Death Valley and Yosemite National Parks, in addition to the
San Diego coastal areas.
