BIOGRAPHY
I've been a professional photographer, working with Fortune 100 clients like IBM, Dell, Motorola and Time Warner for over 25 years. I've taught at the University of Texas at Austin, College of Fine Arts and most recently I've been writing books about photography. The first book is titled: Minimalist Lighting: Professional Techniques for Location Lighting. It grew out of my participation with the people at www.strobist.com and has be a runaway best seller in the category. It was published by Amherst Media in May of 2008. The second book is titled: Minimalist Lighting: Professional Techniques for Studio Lighting. It is the book for people who've mastered using flashes off camera who want to learn to use flashes and other light sources to do good studio type work (actual studio not necessary....). It was published by Amherst Media in April of 2009. The third book is titled: Commercial Photography Handbook. It is a resource for anyone who is contemplating starting a career in professional photography. From how to find your niche to the right way to market. It is a great overview and would make a nice companion to a more nuts and bolt presentation found elsewhere. I'm shooting more video. I'm writing more books and I'm trying to stay in shape by swimming in a competitve masters swim program six days a week.
