Just an update to let you know I have a new workshop/lecture event on my 2008 schedule:
A one-day seminar (including second day field outings with BetterPhoto instructors like myself on Sunday) will be packed with lectures, spending time with professional photographers, and just hangin’ out talking about photography and havin’ fun. The price is fantastic and the company even better.
Here’s the 2008 Summit link (for more info, to sign up, etc):
It’s going to be great weekend spent in one of the most beautiful coastal areas in all the world!

Hey photo-dudes and dudettes, just wanted to share info on my book, coming out this October 2008- here’s a description with links for orders and more…
Description: Exposure. It’s essential to producing high-quality photographs, but mastering exposure is difficult. At last there’s the BetterPhoto Guide to Exposure, packed with Sean’s experience & knowledge, assignments, diagrams, tips, & illustrations, this 225-page book will put you on the right track towards photographic creativity & expertise. It’s like a full-scale photo course between the covers of the book–all taught the BetterPhoto way, just like photographers learn at the top photo-instruction website. There’s plenty of info on both digital & film photography, discussing how different file formats affect exposure, how to adjust digital files, dealing with difficult lighting, color correction, combining digital exposures, & much more. Hundreds of the author’s stunning full-color images make this hardworking guide as inspiring as it is instructive.
About the Author: Sean’s images have been featured in 250 publications & by 150 companies, including National Geographic & Microsoft. A commercial travel photographer & BetterPhoto instructor, he travels the globe & makes his home base in California.
My comments: I’m very proud of this book and believe it will help improve your photography by understanding so many aspects of exposure. Exposure is the basis of all great images, yet most are lost when it comes to knowing how to meter light. Once you read my book, you’ll have a great base to work from as well as a wonderful reference. Your images will improve & your post-capture Photoshop work will take considerably less time & look more realistic.

During my time in Chicago last September lecturing at the BetterPhoto.com summit, I was interviewed by a fellow BetterPhoto instructor and photographer Ibarionex R. Perello- an experienced pro who produces wonderful images of people.
Ibarionex interviewed me for his Podcast “The Candid Frame” and did an outstanding job creating a free-flowing 36 minute discussion about the photo business and my career in it!
Or on iTunes in the Podcast section- here’s the direct link: http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=127842171&s=143441
I’ve started my Podcast through PhotoGuru.tv and iTunes (discussing all aspects of photography), and jump into a variety of issues for this podcast/blog- everything from a nice photo tip, to a cool software program plug-in called NeatImage (for Photoshop CS2 and CS3), as well as recommending fun new tripod for your camera called Gorilla Pods.
I also talk about the benefits of online workshops, and much more. Check it out photo dudes and dudettes….
