Background information

I have nothing against color portraiture, but given a choice, my preference will always be black and white.

This is a collection of what I consider to be some of my best black and white portraits. Most of my subjects were young women who wanted headshots for their acting or modeling portfolios. Few succeeded. I hope my photos weren't to blame.

Most of these photos were shot with a 35mm camera, but a few were shot using medium format. All were shot with black & white film, which I processed and printed myself. What you're viewing are scans of the prints rather than scans of the negatives. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed printing them.
