Timelapse by Dave Delnea

In Craft & Vision, e-books by David11 Comments

Photographer Dave Delnea and I have had a couple great adventures together. The first was a couple weeks in Iceland, the second roughly the same couple weeks driving down the West Coast. Both experiences were among the wettest and coldest of my life. So now I mostly just stick to having the odd beer in a warm pub with the …

In Craft & Vision, News & Stuff, SEVEN by David19 Comments

On Friday I got my hands on the mock-up of the physical book that will this spring become SEVEN, my 160-page fine-art book.

New eBook – Portraits of Earth

In Craft & Vision, e-books, Giveaways by David14 Comments

This summer I began working on a book about landscape photography. I wanted something big, beautiful, and full of the little things I’ve learned over the past few years as I’ve chased the light across the land on seven continents. That book was published today, in PDF format, and available for download now. Portraits of Earth, An Introduction to Landscape …
