Al Judge


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

He holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University and was in charge of New Products Concepts (corporate innovator) for Black & Decker for 23 years prior to his early retirement in 2001.

In 2007, Al published his first book "Innovation's Missing Link" based on his personal experience at Black & Decker as well as his time as a Board Member of PDMA. The essence of the book is human creativity and potential. Al believes that all life experience has a spiritual component and that we are most productive when our values and beliefs are in harmony with our life work. "Innovation's Missing Link" contains several chapters related to socially-conscious business practices.

Al worked at B&D for a total of 37 years in a variety of roles and holds over two dozen US and Foreign Patents. As a college student, he was privileged to work on the Lunar Surface Drill. This is the drill that was used by the Apollo Astronauts to take core samples of the moon. He is still humbled to think that there is a drill on the surface of the moon that was once in the trunk of his car. Al designed many of the first cordless power tools. The battery technology used in these tools was a by-product of the Space Program. The Nickel-Cadmium batteries used in these tools provided a model for all cordless technology including iPads, iPods, and smart phones.

Since his retirement, Al has finally been able to focus on his lifelong love of photography. Because of his passion for photography and desire to share what he has learned, he published his first eBook -- "Digital Photography Like a Pro!" in October 2012. As of April 2013, Al has published a total of 12 photography eBooks and has several more in progress. Three of these books are also available in printed form. There are over a million eBooks listed on and Al ranks in the top one percent of eBook authors.
