Al Judge is a professional photographer and author living in Sedona, Arizona. In March 2012, the Sedona Area Guild of Artists (SAGA) included Al in their list of the Best Artists of Sedona 2012.

Many of his photos are on display on Fine Art America — and available for purchase at:

Al also tutors via Zoom — send inquiries to for details. An hour or two of tutoring can save you months or years of frustration.

Al's books use numerous illustrations and clear explanations to take the mystery out of creating excellent images.

Although Al's books are quite comprehensive, they are written in such a way that no prior knowledge of photography is required. We all learn at different speeds and in different ways. For any skill developed, excellence comes with practice. These books will increase the effectiveness of your practice by steering you in the right direction and exposing the error of some common misconceptions. They provide a solid foundation for accelerated learning.

If you would rather be taking pictures than sitting in a classroom, these books are for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT Primer
By Rusty, J. on October 22, 2016
I have never heard of this author before and this is NOT some BS review.
Being fairly new to the DSLR scene I want to learn as much as I can about my camera (Cannon Rebel T3 1100D). Almost every book I have about digital photography seems to assume that I have a "CLUE" to begin with. I just finished this book and I found it VERY informative, concise and to the point. I didn't feel talked down to or insulted by my limited experience. I found the information simple enough to grasp and leaving out all the technical jargon made a HUGE difference.
I will surely recommend this book to anyone who asks what to read to help them improve and understand their camera and abilities. I have ordered ALL of his books and I suspect that each one will offer clear and concise information that I can actually use. If your anything like me perhaps you'll have your camera in your hands while your reading so you can change settings and see the difference by changing just a few parameters as you read this great book. I know my pictures will only improve from reading his EXCELLENT books!
Happy Shooting!
