Jim Stipovich lives in Northern California, and works as a freelance and wedding photographer. His fine art images are represented here at Stipovich.com and are organized in galleries: Landscapes, Nudes and Fashion, with more to come including Vintage Music. All of these images are produced from medium format cameras (Hasselblad & Rolleiflex), and all black & white film and prints are hand processed by Jim in his private darkroom. These artworks are collected from a lifetime of photo shoots. Today Jim has has completely re-invested himself in his art. The ongoing challenge of sifting through thousands of pages of negatives has been personally rewarding. Here is an ongoing representation of this work.
