Books

I've written a number of books on photography and the creative process as well as published a monograph of the Made of Steel series. My work can also be seen a few issue of LensWork and/or LensWork Extended, the publication we produce on fine art photography. Here is a listing of the various publication where my work can be seen outside this website. They can all be ordered through LensWork Publishing.

The Creative Life in Photography

This latest book in the "Photography and The Creative Process" Series offers readers the opportunity to engage in a selection of timeless and thought-provoking articles previously published in LensWork, but many now long out-of-print. The 203 pages of text are organized in three important sections: Being an Artist, The Creative Muse, and Productivity. This book goes beyond useful; it is truly a "must read" for photographers who are committed to their craft.

Made of Steel —A LensWork Monograph

This project consists of 86 images of garages and machine shops — along with the tools, and men who work in them. Combining images and text, a few images from this body of work were included inLensWork #15 in the fall of 1996. It is now available for the first time in this book-length monograph that includes the entire collection of images from this project.

Letting Go of the Camera

Photography is, or can be, a way of life. Beyond cameras and equipment, beyond film and chemistry, beyond pixels and technology lie the mysteries of the creative life shared by those who strive to communicate and express themselves clearly. This book includes a series of essays that are an exploration of the path of creative photography. 186 pages.
