Buff Black Photography


Buff is drawn to apparent opposites – cityscape magic and wilderness grandeur. Here at home, his scenes of Bellingham, the North Cascades, and pastoral Whatcom County have been well received by an eclectic mix of local cafes, businesses, and nonprofits (including Futurewise and Sustainable Connections). On the urban flipside, Buff captures the ‘moods of metropolis’ in his big-city skylines, including Chicago and Washington DC, which are now featured in the postcards, posters and calendars of Impact Photographics, America’s leading postcard publisher.

Bellingham Frameworks is top drawer, no dust. Owner Paul Hemminger and his crew have helped me meet some tough crunch deadlines, all with good humor and wit. His rendering of my big images onto canvas has been exceptional, creating vibrant and impactful photos ready for show. In a recent interchange with Paul, we chuckled about how he is not yet a god – but he is a superhero.
