Candor, intelligence and a will for a particular kind of good. This existentially honest article is a long read... and a good one. It's also indicting and tremendously sad.

Getting in front of change.

Current projects I'm passionate about include Dane Sanders Photographers, Fast Track CreativeConverge: the Business of Creativity Podcast, the Better Together Photo Community & advancing the cause at Biola's Center for Christian Thought.

A little while back, Photo District News named me one of the 30 most influential living photographers of the last decade. Of course, it was a ridiculous assertion. I'm just hoping that, by influence, those that voted meant empowering all of us to flourish in their calling as professional creatives. When it comes to the creativity world, that's what I care about most. 

To that end, I've authored two books for photographers - both published by Random House - as well as a bunch of other resources for photographers

I've taught at Brooks Institute, Westmont College, SXSW, PPE, WPPI, Imaging USA as well as events throughout North America, South America, Europe & Asia. 

My work has been featured in a number of books and publications including Rangefinder, Professional Photographer, Grace Ormonde & Design Aglow & Photojojo.

Thanks for checking in.
