About the Book
Don’s award-winning work spans several genres from evocative travel photography and fine art landscapes to charismatic portraits and headshots. Regardless of the subject matter in front of his lens, his artistic vision is evident. Don’s photographs convey the hidden beauty he finds in unexpected places, moments, and expressions. Don frames his images with patience and deliberateness, waiting for the right light and the "decisive moment" that epitomizes his unique vision before pressing the shutter. He captures his subjects in moments of unguardedness, when they are relaxed and at their most genuine. He believes the strongest composition is often the simplest, eliminating the extraneous from his images and including only those elements that compliment his chosen subject. Don practices a similar “less is more” philosophy when retouching, meticulously processing his images in the digital darkroom with subtlety and restraint.
