About Westerner

Dear Patreon Community,

I can’t wait to see everybody’s work here.

I have been shooting photos since 1968 when I got a black and white Polaroid camera as a gift and at about the same time got a photo book of Matthew Brady, the Civil War photographer.

Photography has been a major preoccupation since then and at various times I have made a living as a professional photographer as well as a color custom printer for some of the greatest all time photographers. I love both color and black and white photography and keep photo blogs of each.

I have a passion for trains and train operations as well and have 3 self-published books about the railroad. Two of the books are intended for children and the other is a coffee table book of train graffiti.

During a stressful move back to the Pacific Northwest, I dropped my camera. It is something I have never done. Mine was not a great camera, not great but what I was using. The loss of my camera has been devastating but I do have a point and shoot I carry everyday. When I see something great now, I can’t get it!!!

My current project is photographing and researching models of the 1939 World's Fair.
