Among others, these include Brannen Brothers Flutemakers, Lopatin Flutes, and Verne Q. Powell Flutes. He has done documentary photography of antique musical instruments and archival musical documents, including Theobold Boehm's first ring-keyed (1847) flute, plus archival documents at the Royal Opera House (London) and the Teatro della Scala (Milan.)
