In my eBooks, I open up my portfolio and explain the photographic workflow – from location scouting, in-the-field techniques, to post processing. With this new knowledge, you can focus on enjoying your photography while expanding your creative horizons.
The Golden Hours: A Guide to Photographing the Light of Sunrises and Sunsets is an eBook written to help guide photographers through the unique challenges that this light presents. Many photographers will often note that their sunrise and sunset images rarely represent the scene they saw. I help to explain why this is so, and more importantly, how to transcend the disparity between your view and your results, allowing you to create realistic images of this beautiful light.
Also included with this eBook is an additional guide on exposure blending – the post processing technique I use to create my golden hour images in the digital darkroom. In this step-by-step guide, I discuss the entire process of exposure blending – from auto-bracketing in the field, to combining different exposures in post process.

The disparity between learning a photographic technique and knowing how to apply it creatively to your environment is a source of much frustration for landscape photographers. This portfolio study can show you how to overcome this roadblock, and unleash your inner creativity.
With The Golden Hour Portfolio eBook, I can help to bridge the gap between your vision and your creation by explaining how I approached each of my golden hour images – and more importantly, why. By reading about my camera workflow, you can learn how to critically analyze a scene and decide on the best method to use that compliments your creative style.
I discuss many aspects of my creative process – some examples include how I find inspiration, choosing a strong focal point, pivotal moments in my creative development, and the importance of applying photography principles to your composition (such as contrast and symmetry).
Also discussed is the technical side of each image – what settings I use, how to compensate for exposure, and how to judge a scene before deciding what methods to apply.

The Art of Bokeh: A Guide to Using Shallow Depths in Landscape Photography was written to inspire photographers to think beyond the confines of a deep depth of field. It’s focused on guiding landscape photographers of all levels to widen their aperture and see the environment as light and shapes, and to create abstract, ethereal images that have a deeper meaning and interpretation. This is my first eBook, written from my perspective and experiences, and I’m thrilled to present it.
By using a shallow depth of field and thin slices of focus, you can completely transform a landscape, manipulating an environment that usually can not be changed or controlled. You can create a complex or simple photograph by changing your depth, and this guide can show you how.
