More About the Author

I am proud of the work I have done as a photographer, author, naturalist and nature photographer, editor and videographer. I love the natural world, and that can be a native bee in my native plants garden as much as a visit to a national park. I am a husband of a beautiful and smart wife, a father to my outstanding son and daughter, and one who lived in Minnesota most of my life, but now loves the variety and very long growing season of Southern California.

I have written and photographed a lot of books and magazine articles but what is most important to me about them is knowing that I have helped people become better photographers and gain a better connection to nature. I work to help people connect with photography and nature through speaking and as a workshop leader, too. All of this has gained me a Fellow award with the North American Nature Photography Association. Many people knew me as the long-time editor of Outdoor Photographer magazine and I am still connected with them as a contributing editor.

A short list of some of the books I have done: Landscape Photography: From Snapshot to Great Shot, Magic of Digital Landscape Photography, The Magic of Digital Nature Photography, National Geographic Field Guide to Digital Photography, The Power of Black-and-White in Nature Photography and Reports from the Field (an iBook).

Format: Paperback
After a (long) period of snap shooting on auto my desire for taking good pictures grew. I spoiled myself with a dSLR.

Intent on learning to use my new treasure I looked in the manual and got immediately lost. It showed me how to set Aperture, Shutter Speed, White Balance, BUT what are they? Why? To do what?

So I got this "Photography Simplified" book and it showed me in short clear texts next to exemplifying photos what to think about and what happens when taking photos. Love it. It is a very easy read and I recommended it warmly to my all my photographing friends.

At the same time I also read another beginners book The Betterphoto Guide to Digital Photography (Amphoto Guide Series). It is a delight to read with wonderful photos and it does use, and explain easily, the earlier mentioned terms.

I warmly recommend both these books.

Format: Paperback
Well written and nicely illustrated for beginners. Okay for a quick read; but I would suggest that a book written expressly for your new camera be the first choice for beginners. Whatever you choose for reading first, start taking lots of photographs right away. Put into practice every step described in whatever books you choose.

Unsolicited advice for beginners: be quick to learn and slow to buy equipment. A lot of junk is for sale. Read the reviews before buying anything.

Good book for those who know nothing about photography and want to know a bit more about many aspects of photography. A bit too simplified for me.

Being fairly new to digital photography, except for owning a "Point & Shoot" digital camera, this is an excellent reference book for understanding my new Canon EOS 60D digital camera with it's many different features. I recommend it to anyone either as a self-help instruction manual or as a reference book. As is usual with most Amazon purchases, the book arrived much beofre the estimated delivery date. Amazon cannot ber beat for Internet shopping!

Just purchased this educational (and inspirational) book for our 13-year old granddaughter, supporting her first venture into digital photography. This is a great tool for the just-getting-started audience, as well as a solidly-written and well-illustrated book that inspires those of us already familiar with digital photography to make better pictures.
Well done!
