Brief Encounters on the Playa is a small collection of portraits I have done at Burning Man over the past 13 years. They are all done in a studio setting isolating the participants from outside Burning Man influences.
In my Theme camp, Free Photography Zone, each person photographed is given a Polaroid print and then photographed on 2 1/4x2 3/4" black and white film. As of 2009 I have done approximately 24,000 photographs.
If you come to Burning Man please come by the camp and have your photograph done.
The book is sold through Blurb at $75 or through me for $100 which includes a signed copy and an original fine art print.

I have been a professional commercial photographer for over 30 years. Actually closer to 35 now but I stopped counting long ago. I own and operate a large, 3,500 sq ft. studio in Santa Clara CA where I produce photography for business, architects and publications. Whenever time permits I photograph people.
