Where do I begin for those that don't know this longtime Ansel Adams assistant and friend? What better way than with some words from Ansel Adams' wife, Virginia..."Jeff has been a friend of mine, and was of Ansel's, for many years. I know what deep love Jeff has for the Sierra and Yosemite. This love is very sensitively transmitted through his very fine photographs. Jeff has a marvelous eye and combines that with excellent craftsmanship - this combination of abilities is essential, but all too often not found in the same artist. I highly recommend Jeff's photographs!"... Virginia Adams.

If you don't know or never heard of Jeff Nixon or have never seen any of his photography, let me just say his eye and printing skills are incredible. Since the 1970's Jeff has made one spectacular image after another. That's the good news.

For those who know Jeff or have read about him and his troubles over the last 35 years, you would understand why his photography isn't selling at the level of other master photographers today. There are some articles on the Internet about Jeff and his issues, here is one from 2016.

Luckily for Jeff, today he has a great support team that is working hard to help get him back in the game. The following photographs are the images that Jeff is offering to those who pledge $135.00 or more for one of the valuable rewards offerded.

We have set a lofty goal for Jeff's new darkroom Kickstarter project. Jeff is not only in need of film, darkroom supplies, and an updated website, but also a better living environment so he can concentrate on his photography and making new images for years to come. 

Thank you for any support you can give....no amount is too small. If you pledge an amount that gets you an original photograph, you will not only have helped a great artist, but you will soon own a great photograph.    

Risks and challenges

The risks are minimal for you to receive your reward by the dates set within. This is my sixth Kickstarter project and and the one thing I have learned is to be on time as best as you can. I'm very confident that you will receive Jeff's reward in a timely manner. There are no other logistical risks associated with this project at this time.
