Photography, writing (fiction and non-fiction), analyzing technology & its market, or giving presentations/lectures/workshops, it's all about telling a good story that will hopefully entertain, amuse and enlighten.
My current photography project is American Hands
, for which I'm creating narrative portraits of artisans who are keeping the old trades alive (i.e. bookbinder, blacksmith, spinner, coopersmith, etc.) I've been honored to receive several dozen grants in support of American Hands, and that more than 200,000 individuals have personally attended an American Hands exhibit. Exhibits, slideshow presentations and additional photo shoots are ongoing. Recently the New York Foundation for the Arts has adopted American Hands under its Artspire
fiscal sponsorship program. You can also find American Hands on Facebook
Of course, I continue to write some reviews, white papers and other non-fiction. And our DigitalBenchmarks Labs continues to do testing and analyses of a variety of technologies related to photography, printing and epublishing. Among the various publications to which I contribute tech and camera/imaging articles, the newest is the online Tom's Guide
I also enjoy teaching classes in photography, image editing, color management and fine art digital printing. Occasionally, I give Master Classes
(limited to 4-6 students) in my studio.
