On the Edge

My first book entitiled On the Edge - A Photographic Exploration of Light and Design is now available for order. This book is a landscape tutoriol + portfolio of many of my recent images created digitally within the past five years.

The book is 120 pages and is divided into five chapters which demonstrate many of the concepts I use in my own style of shooting and those I currently teach in my personal workshops and in Gary Hart's Photograph California workshops. Layouts, text, and design vary from chapter-to-chapter. Chapter 5 discusses my Photoshop workflow, from RAW conversion to optimizing the image for either publications or printing.

After a year-long search for a suitable publisher, I decided to print my book on-demand with Blurb.com. Their quality and craftmanship is second to none, and believe me, I've tried them all.

You may order the book by clicking on the cover icon below. You may also view the first 15 pages by clicking on the link below the cover icon. The book will be shipped from the publisher to the address you provide. Please allow 10 business days if ordering in the United States.
