    Found him today on Pinterest, the all pictures site

    He used the big Linhof Triple, which caught my eye

    He also sits under his Deardorff S11

    I stood under mine first day it was usable, unaware of history

    I remember Sam from my formative days in photography.

    If my memory serves, he advertised Pentax 35mm SLR's like the LX.....at least in the UK.

    He was a regular contributor to several magazines too.

    mpire, I met him in Taipei almost 40 years ago at an exhibition of his work sponsored by Pentax. He was pushing the Pentax 645. Very nice guy and I've always admired his work.

    +1.

    He was well-known as a partisan of the Pentax 6x7 and was closely associated with the company and involved in its promotional activities for many years. He did many of the annual Pentax calendars.

    Perhaps his later digital work moves further towards his own personal synthesis of form and texture through surreal elements. Whereas his move from Pentax touting hero to digital imaging risks a fate which has befallen so many of our childhood photographer heroes, I found the surrealist integration of his latter day vision more alluring than the immediacy of his stereotypical work. His work invites more curiosity and discovery despite succumbing to digital as a capture media.

    Here are two lesser known favourites (of mine) of his digital works (printed on Kodak paper):
