A book about me
and my photography

How did you start?, how did you do that?, how did you meet Joy?, what is a good portrait? ... and many more things are in this book.

A poetry book on photography
It started out as notes in a notebook, and then one day in Hong Kong, 
I sat down and put it into a book. I continued the work in Hollywood, 
Havana and London, and this is what I put together. I hope readers enjoy every moment of the 180 pages.

The Axioms of Photography
People have asked me for years to write the axioms of photograph - the fundamental truths. That's not easy. This book has the first attempt to write them.

Why I write booksI write books
to inspire

My purpose is to help people improve. I don’t like to get told, and I don’t like to get tested. So I found a way of writing to others that isn’t a test, and it isn’t an instruction. I write so it may inspire, and also leave the possibility open that you might figure out an improved way of doing it.

I write books
to accomplish more

I can only do so much travel and so many workshops a year, so books are a way for me to try to reach more people.  When I have left a city, there are still books as a reminder, or as something to expand the meeting we had. 

I write books
for wise people

I read books and magazines to get inspired, and to learn things. I don’t like books that goes on over hundreds of pages to make one point. So I write the books I would want to read. If I can put a life’s experience about light so it all makes sense in 20 pages, I’ll do just that. I don’t sell words. On the other hand, if I can talk for 400 pages about something really cool and keep it lively, I’ll do just that.

I write books
as small stories and chapters

I realized years ago that if I were to wait to write anything until I had it all figured out, it would likely never happen. So, I started writing small articles and chapters in broken English. One piece at the time to build the big puzzle, that’s how I write, and that’s how it should be read. If a chapter or article inspires you to go out and make photographs, that’s just perfect. The book can wait until you get back.

I write books
to remember stuff

When I wonder about something, I study it and learn about it. Then I write it down. I’ve done it for so long that sometimes when I wonder how something works, I know I have it on my website, or in my own books. I often read myself to remember how to do something. That’s a good reminder of why I write. I write to build and preserve ideas and knowledge.

I write books
to share

I say, “Don’t be an unpublished writer”, when I talk about making sure you share your photographs. They should go somewhere, and for people to look at them. And of course, I feel the same way with writings. I could keep my small secret notes, but I’d rather share them.

That’s why I write books ...
