“To create interesting light, you have to create interesting shadows.”
My Story: the short version
Amy and I met when I was 6 and she was 5. We will celebrate our 23nd wedding anniversary this year.
Our lads—Tom, Vin, and Tony—are all amazing in their own unique ways.
As an imagemaker (still and motion), I am obsessed with light–seeing it, feeling it, and sharing it. I am equally obsessed with shadow.
I earned a BFA in studio art years ago and once built a pinhole camera that shot 20″ x 24″ film (which I printed as cyanotypes). This summer, I look forward to starting work on an MFA.
Recently, I built a darkroom at home. I’m now making abstract photographs in which I cast light directly onto photo-sensitive paper. No camera. No computer. I call my new series “Color Fields.”
I’m humbled to say that I’ve written two best-selling books on the subject of lighting—Speedliter’s Handbook and Lighting for Digital Photography.
I teach photography and art full-time at Mission College Prep in San Luis Obispo.
During the summer I teach week-long workshops in great places like Santa Fe, Rockport, and Missoula.
And yes, I’m proud of my crazy, red hair.

I shoot Sports, Action, and Fashion for editorial and advertising. I am experienced in digital slr, 35mm, medium format and 4 X 5 as well as studio lighting for indoors or outdoors. I can and have handled large productions as well as small and welcome any challenge. I have a quick turnaround for the final product or can transmit images via the internet.
