There's a reason I chose an F4U Corsair as my profile picture. I am a lot like this WWII warbird - the Corsair was a rough, tough, and ready fighter plane back in the day when it was pilot vs. pilot in a dogfight, not electronics vs. electronics. I am like the F4U in that I might not look the sleekest, might not be the most politically correct, and might not be the most popular person in a room, but I am rough, ready, short and to the point, no-nonsense writer to give you the information you need to take better pictures. The Corsair was about results in a dogfight, my books are about results in photography.
I've seen so many books in which it was clear the primary focus of the book was making the page count worthy of a high price tag for the book. I couldn't find a short, simple to understand guide giving the information you need to know to take better pictures without confusing rhetoric and fluff to fill pages. Photography is my only focus, giving you the information so you can go out and take better pictures with just about any camera you own. After I finished the first book about the basics of photography, ideas for other books came to mind as I was asked numerous questions about more advanced topics. So started my series of ebooks about photography.
Currently I have two ebooks published and available in all of the e-reader formats and as a .pdf for computer reading and printing. The first is the basics book mentioned above and it was followed up by a book about posing people to flatter just about anybody you photograph. I am in the process of writing a third book about getting into modeling and being a successful at it, which will be published early this summer. This fall I will be back to photography topics, publishing a book about concert and stage show photography. Following that I will be publishing books about advanced outdoor and indoor photography using inexpensive accessories so everyone can get great pictures. I love getting reviews and ideas from readers about future books to write.
