I was always the one not in the pictures as I was always taking them. In this life long process I learned the difference between a picture and a photo. A picture is what we take and a photo has a story. One of my greatest photographic thrills is to have people look at me when I'm photographing something, then look in the direction I'm photographing and look back at me. Then they look again at the direction I'm photographing. Seeing the look of what is he doing? What does he see? Fills me with the "What" the juice of my being?" Or to be asked: "How long did it take you to take that photo?" Answer: "All my life!" Or to be told: "I have a camera, I could take that photo." Reply: Great, go, do it, and find this moment for you. You'll enjoy it. This is not a technical book, it's a PHOTOGRAPHY IS FUN book and every photo has a STORY. The equipment doesn't make you a professional or even a good photographer. YOU DO! Technology rules in so much of our world. It answers our questions, computes our math, governs so much of our lives, tells us what month, day, and time it is, has taken society from knowing ones neighbors to not knowing who lives next door, but at the same time it has shrunk our world to bring us closer together in mind, body, and spirit. There is a saying: "We are all one people" and technology has brought that to the forefront more than before. At the same time it has challenged outdoor activities, social contact, and human nature. There are so many technical photography books but none that I know of tell the story of why the photo taken. I want people to learn how to see what others don't, to look for the banquet Mother Natures gives us everyday, to feel the photo, and to become aware of the pure fun and joy of photography.

Pioneer Photographers Of The Far West

RRP $307.99

This extraordinarily comprehensive, well-documented, biographical dictionary of some 1,500 photographers (and workers engaged in photographically related pursuits) active in western North America before 1865 is enriched by some 250 illustrations, many of them previously unpublished.
The territory covered stretches from Alaska through Central America, and embraces all of the present-day states of the United States that fall, at least partially, west of the Continental Divide. The work is distinguished by the sheer number of entries, by the engaging quality of the biographical narratives that cover both the professional and personal lives (wherever possible) of the subjects, and by the careful, detailed documentation. It will be an indispensable reference work for historians, libraries, institutions with collections of early western photographs, and many enthusiasts and collectors in the field.
In addition to photographers, the book includes retouchers, printers, manufacturers and sellers of photographic instruments and stock, publishers, lithographers, and engravers. Since western photographs often figured prominently in the creation of moving panoramas and popular optical amusements such as dioramas and magic lantern shows, the people behind those exhibitions are also covered.
Far from being simply a reference tool, this book provides a rich trove of fascinating reading with a colorful cast of characters, including: Epifania de Guadalupe Vallejo, a teenaged Mexican girl who was the earliest known daguerrotypist on the West Coast; John Charles Fremont, who attempted to photograph the Rocky Mountains in 1842; John Wesley Jones, whose adventures while photographing and sketching the California Trail included the indignity of being stripped of his clothes by Crow Indians; and the eccentric Frederick Coombs, an accomplished photographer who was convinced he was the reincarnation of George Washington.
