I am a photographer as well as author of digital photography books. Photography has been a passion of mine for over 30 years, and Iâ™ve enjoyed many successes in my “second career”. Iâ™ve photographed many portraits, even weddings here and there. Iâ™ve photographed the ruins of Detroit, the beauty of nature, the slot canyons of Arizona, Buddhist Temples of Japan and the mysticism of Stonehenge.
I currently teach digital photography at BetterPhoto.com, as well as developing a slew of new books on digital photography, Photoshop, Elements, Lightroom, and the list goes on… “I write, therefore I am!”
