In Books, Craft & Vision, e-books, News & Stuff by David6 Comments

Over the course of the year I put what I hope is a solid body of great education on this blog – essays and tutorials and photographs from my journey in this craft that I hope will teach and inspire you wherever you are in your own photographic journey.

Building SEVEN: It’s Printed!

In Books, Craft & Vision, News & Stuff, SEVEN by David8 Comments

SEVEN, my fine-art book, is almost ready for the binders. I spent Friday and Saturday at Hemlock Printers watching sheet after sheet come off the press, a massive 10-unit Heidelberg Speedmaster.

Bruce first caught my attention with his incredible podcasts – all of which he photographs, scripts, and records himself, including music he writes and records himself.
