Maker of beautiful specialty cameras for 40 years

A fortuitous encounter with a university furniture designer, years after first entering the darkroom with my father, eventually led to the obvious connection between wood and photography. The beauty of a traditionally made camera was an irresistible draw the equal of my passion for photography. Woven through all the subsequent years has been a love for the challenge of designing and building photographic instruments.

My aim is to inspire and facilitate the creative journey with functional and beautiful photographic tools. I hope that my cameras could easily stand along side the great marques of the first half century of photographic history.
