WORKING FIRE: A FIRE BUFF'S JOURNEY

 

My new book, WORKING FIRE: A FIRE BUFF'S JOURNEY is a collection of some of my favorite fire photographs. The book contains four chapters, Working Fires, Working Faces, Working Apparatus, and Working Firehouses. The photographs were taken in both my local area (The Four Corners) and other locations that I have buffed throughout the years. From the "jobs," to the firefighters, their rigs, and their firehouses, this is a photo essay of the American Fire Service. Click on the icon below for a preview and ordering information.
