Me
  • Name: Jeff Siddens

  • Home: St. Louis, Missouri suburbs
  • Age:
  • Occupation: None. Retired. Hallelujah, I’m a Bum!
Photography in General
  • Photographers I like: The usual landscape suspects from the early part of the 20th century, the f/64 gang–Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Brett Weston, Imogen Cunningham, etc.
  • Type of photography I do: The “intimate landscape”; smaller stuff like flowers, budding plants, native prairie near my home. I try pictures of bigger stuff like National Parks when I have the chance. Style = mostly “straight” and I always try for black and white but don’t always succeed at it and have to settle for color (and often nothing at all).
