Virginia Vintage photography

The Old Dominion is a treasure trove for lovers of US History, beginning with the founding of Jamestown in 1607 and the British Colonial period, and extending through the American Revolutionary War and the US Civil War, to the modern times of the State of Virginia.

This web site is devoted to photography of historical sites and history-related events principally in Virginia, and using, as possible, vintage stereo, medium-format or other film cameras. The photography is purely amateur in nature, and to date it has been driven purely by personal interest and the happenstance of occasions drawing my family and me to different locales in and around the Commonwealth. Looking forward, however, I would welcome invitations to history-related sites, events, and reenactments in Virginia that I might capture on film and subsequently share with the event organizers and others. Individuals with a keen interest in Virginia and US history are also welcome to contact me about history-theme photo projects that might be pursued using a vintage stereo or medium-format camera in combination with black-and-white or color film, or a modern 3D digital camera.

The stereoview images in the photo portfolios presented here are, in a number of cases,
formatted for viewing by the so-called cross-eyed viewing method. That is, the image
captured by the right camera lens is presented on the left, and the image captured
by the left camera lens is presented on the right. Printed versions of these
stereoview cards may require the images to be reversed in order to be
viewed successfully using a traditional stereoscope or other stereo card viewer.
However, the most recent stereoview images in the portfolios presented here
are formatted for viewing by the traditional parallel viewing method, and the
printed stereoview cards made from these images may be viewed using Holmes
stereoscopes and other traditional-style stereo card viewers.
