Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
I have already published four books for my family about our family. They just went crazy with those books and want me to publish more. This year I begin planning and working on what I hope will be my most memorable printed production: a book commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Panama Canal that will occur in 2014. I will be making several trips to Panama from now to 2014 planning my book, researching and begin photo shooting.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
I am completely self-taught in the art and science of photography. I have been shooting pictures for many years, but this year (2010) I finally decided to hunker down and take photography more seriously; studying and learning from the best. I thank my teachers, Bryan Peterson, Michael Freeman, Sean Arbabi, Jeff Wignall, Harold Davis, and others, truly a fountain of knowledge from where I have been drinking. I also thank my inseparable and loving wife Silvia who QC's every book I create.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
I put every ounce of my heart and soul and push myself to the outer limits creating every work I do be it shooting pictures, editing my photos, creating my silde-shows or making my books. I will not release any product that I create until I am fully satisfied with the results. The books I'm promoting here at Blurb, available for you to purchase, are my first ingression into the professional world.
