Wish List

Here is a Wish List of things I'd love to add to The Photo Palace, but lack the funds to do so at the moment:

• Old, run-down 20 to 25ft Airstream trailer! This is key to building the second floor and I know someone who will read this knows someone who has one of these babies rotting away in some corner of their property just taking up space and providing refuge to possums and bats.  This can get a little complex - the Airstream may be found in some remote part of the country, but I would try my very best to either pick it up.   Perhaps that someone you know will not mind me coming to them with The Photo Palace Bus and staying there next to the Airstream in question for about a week or two, while actually working on putting it up on the roof of The Bus?   That would be a minor miracle and I believe in those rather strongly.

• RV Rooftop Air Conditioning Unit - installed.  By golly it can get HOT in the bus!  A rooftop AC would be heavenly and would help greatly to keep the chemistry and paper from spoiling much faster than they should.

• Photo Art!  Bus3 Gallery is looking for artists to be represented by The Bus.  Alternative process prints such as Salt, Gum, Carbro prints and others are welcomed.  I'd love to find an Autochrome as well - there's nothing like looking at one of these live, but so far I have not come upon one that I could buy.

• Old B&W paper and film.  As you might have already gathered I love shooting old cameras using period films and printing them on vintage papers.  My favorite B&W films include Kodak Ektapan, Panatomic-X, Technical Pan and Verichrome Pan, Agfa APX 25, 100 or 400 any and all Polaroid Films of any format.  Papers are too many to list - Luminos, Agfa, Kodak, Gevart, GAF, Dupont.... just no Resin Coated please - only fiber-base.  If your paper does not say Fiber or RC anywhere on the box chances are it was made before RC even came onto the scene and it's Fiber.  Paper can be mailed to my base in San Diego, or I can stop by (if you are on the way) and pick it up myself.  Please contact me through the email at the bottom of this page and let me know what you have and where you are.  In return you will get one of my prints done on your donated paper!

Thank You,
