Hi, I'm Jeff Michalek and I've lived in Gunnison, Colorado on and off for 26 years. I have been in the building trade for 25 years working in California, Washington, Montana and Colorado. I started Black Archer Studio, 6 years ago, when I decided to merge my passion for photography with my love for building and craft. I am a self-taught photographer, specializing in handmade photographs and historic processes.
