I’ve always loved reading and writing. When I was 13 years old I wrote a great novel—well, it was a short story that I wrote all by myself on an old typewriter in my little basement studio—who has a studio when they are thirteen years old? I had this great desk and work area, right next to my darkroom. Yeah, I had a darkroom too. I got an A on that story and ever since I wanted to put words on paper. I’ve recently finished up three years as Editor of photo technique Magazine, where I was hired to ‘put the technique back into photo technique.’ The Nov/Dec issue was the final issue, sadly the magazine closed December 31, 2013.
In January, 2014 I launched a new magazine called The Handmade Photograph with emphasis on the handmade aspects of digital inkjet, silver gelatin, historic processes and other techniques that show the hand of the artist. In it you’ll find a friendly community of authors, educators and photographers who generously share their insights and techniques for making photographs. The first issue of the magazine launched in April 2014. Please like the Facebook page where you can sign up for the e-letter mailing list. You can download the first digital issue for FREE!

Some recent work is below in PDF format. I’m available for freelance writing and editing projects.
