During my photographic experience, I have often migrated to historic scenes.  I have riden and photographed steam powered trains since the 1990's.  This portfolio represents the best of these photos printed mostly in platinum, but also Gum over Platinum and Platinum over Pigment.

Portfolios

Quail Run Art is a collaboration of the husband and wife team of Les Allert and Jill Miller-Allert.  Married since 1980, they met while working as Park Rangers for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  Their 30 year careers with the Federal government also included time working for the National Park Service and the Bureau of Land Management.  They now reside on the east side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains near Carson City, NV.  They have turned their interest in travel, history and the natural world into creating art.

 After taking a workshop by Kerik Kouklis, Les began experimenting with this combination print process.  Platinum printing date back to 1873, while Gum printing date back to 1855.

See where we are currently showing our art.

Sixty-five years after closing, the Djupavik Herring Factory silently stands as a monument of man's ingenuity under the harsh Icelandic weather.

 A modern twist of combination printing developed by Dan Burkholder brings the digital and platinum worlds together.  Following on-line instructions by Kerik Kouklis, Les began experimenting.
