About me:

Austin Portrait and Advertising Photographer and writer of four popular books on photographic lighting and one book about the business of commercial photography. And now one novel about photography called, The Lisbon Portfolio.
Book one: Minimalist Lighting: Professional Techniques for Location Photography
Book two: Minimalist Lighting: Professional Techniques for Studio Photography.
Book (Three) on the business of photography: Commercial Photography Handbook.
Book Four is the Guide to Lighting Equipment.
Book Five is the LED Lighting Book. The only one of its kind in the world.
The novel is about a photographer in Lisbon Portugal at a trade show at the turn of the last century.

I am now an instructor for Craftsy.com and have three video tutorials live on their site. It's a new learning platform for popular arts and crafts.

I've shot advertising photography for IBM, Dell, Motorola, AMD, Silicon Labs, Freescale Semiconductor, Polycom, Time Warner, and countless regional businesses, hospitals and medical practices.
