Photography/Ze Whiz Kidz photos


I hope you are well and still living in the NW. I'd like to talk to you about use of a couple of your photos for an exhibit at this year's Bumbershoot if you have the time.

Well it is so good to hear from you. It has been to say the least a long time since I last saw you. How are you? What’s happening in your world?  Ze Whiz kids for Bumbershoot. Cool.
But first a little news. We are now far, far away from the troubled US. We had had enough of its high cost of living, violence and negativity. So in 2010 Diane and I moved to a petit village in the South of France.  We live in a 12th village of winemakers and grape growers—vignerons—and we are well integrated into the community. We sold our place in Gig Harbor and took our savings and bought a 14th village house off the main square of the town. It is a lovely life. The weather is mild, the food is local and great and people laugh about most everything. Its a ‘southern’ and slow life but very rich. I have shot thousands of images since our arrival documenting village life and activities. And here people love to have me take their pictures!
So what can I do for you to help with Ze Whiz project?
My email is
Hope to hear from you soon

I am a professional photographer and I've been shooting for newspapers, magazines, commercial clients and artists for over 30 years. I have shot stock photography for dozens of years and in 1977 created West Stock (Seattle, WA) which was one of the first to produce stock photo CDs and later one of the first to establish an online stock photo slaes site. I have a new book on digital photography "PHOTOGRAPHING ARTS, CRAFTS AND COLLECTIBLES (Lark Books, 2007)which is available at, and in bookstores like Barnes & Noble and Borders. I have another book, CAPTURE THE LIGHT which will be puiblished in November, 2008. I write 20-30 feature articles and columns for regional and national publications a year. My education includes studying with photographers like Cornell Capa, Duane Michels and Oliver Gagliani (from the Ansel Adams Center.)
