The passage of April into May is exciting for many reasons. Among the foremost is that the summer photo workshop season will soon be upon us.

Canon Professional Network, a great online resource produced by Canon Europe, just published my new article on deciding which Speedlite is the best for your needs. In the article I walk about:
Advantage of a Speedlite over pop-up flash Features to consider when buying a Speedlite Model-specific features and […]
Following the recent publication of my updated Speedliter’s Handbook, I had many overdue promises to fulfill. The foremost of which was to spent more time with my family. Now that I’ve made good on that promise, I’m pleased to announce that I’ve created the Exposure Quick Guide that […]
