In 2013 I got excited about a very old process that is traditionally used to create Contact Prints. I started playing with the process placing the blue paper directly in my hand-made large format camera to track the sun’s arc across the sky – this is not supposed to be done!
One of my first tests resulted in the sun burning a hole in the paper while the paper was exposing. Ouch!

Watershed – Original Prints Straight from the Camera
In 2012 I traveled to Victoria BC to teach a workshop. On that trip I discovered a seed that developed into a process I tweaked to produce unique Black & White Photos.
I have applied this process to my Watershed collection of work.
The final paper is loaded into the camera, exposed and framed.
>> There is no negative, no digital file, no post processing and no opportunity for darkroom manipulation. The result is a one-of-a-kind B&W photo.
This process tests my skills behind the camera and requires me to get a perfect exposure for the complete photo. It’s demanding!!
