The Books I've Written


  Often a class or private lesson just isn't enough. That's where my books come in handy. I write my books in the same style as I teach. You'll find them a bit more casual than other books, more readable. I focus my attention on teaching you what you need to know. I don't write books to show off my skills as a photographer, but rather I get right to the point on each topic. I've been told by many of my students and clients that these books are the easiest, simplest and most effective books on the market. In fact, I wrote them with that intention.
