I needed an new portrait for my upcoming book that will be released in a few months, and my good friend Rich was kind enough to help me out. I’m like most photographers in that I prefer to be the one taking the photos, but my only request to Rich was that he make me look good. I think (hope!) he did a good job. :)

    That is a good picture and it communicated photographer.

    I am amazed how many photographers are camera shy. When I interview photogs for the podcast we need an image to use in the show notes and most don’t have one, or only have a snap shot.

    I suggested to my studio partners that we make images of each of us shot in the same way for the website, but there was to much resistance to get it done.
