User Bio

Born in Prague, then Czechoslovakia. Left for the US in 1969. Served in the USAF and became photographer after seeing my first 4×5 negative come up in the developer, under a green safelite—military boot stepping on a flower. Corny, I know, but hey, instant love, to this day. Got my US citizenship and ran my own custom b&w photo lab in Minneapolis for two decades after that, while teaching fine b&w printing. Meanwhile, didn't get rich inventing or marketing the original M-Grip for M Leica cameras, nor being the first and then exclusive US importer of FOMA film and paper products from the Czech Republic. Been a street life photographer since day one, and became a live entertainment photographer since Theatre de la Jeune Lune let me in, back in 1980.

  3. If I ever did receive that confirmation email from you, it's gone to its maker. Any chance you can email another one? Sure can't find a way to ask you to do so, anywhere else. Took me like an hour to figure out how to get in touch with you. Sheesh!
