About the Author
For the past three decades he has been an editor, author, and publisher in the fields of photography and computers. On the publishing side, he was editor-in-chief of one of Little Brown's divisions and also held the same position in Prentice-Hall's technology and engineering program and Prentice-Hall International. In that role, he worked with Ansel Adams and was partly responsible for his shifting his books to Little Brown. Tiring of the travel, he switched to the other side of the industry, becoming first a publisher of photography and computer books (Curtin & London) and then an author in these same fields. In his roles as both editor and author he's been fortunate to publish or write many best-selling books in photography and computing.
