About scott

I live in Minneapolis Minnesota and have a passion for making portraits with view cameras and large format black and white film. In the last ten years, I have been drawn to older film cameras and large film formats up to 8x10 inch negatives. I also spend a fair amount of time perfecting recipes for pasta sauce, home-made pizza and vegetarian soup. When not engaged in the previously mentioned pursuits, I think about which 14,000 foot mountain will be number 7.

When is a woodpile also a home? When a porcupine takes up residence during the day! We were up in Crosslake, MN for the President’s Day holiday weekend, and a winter cabin demands a winter fire. As we cleared away … Continue reading
