When I completed Strobist as a project in 2021, I promised to check back in when I had something worth sharing. Today, I’m announcing my new book, The Traveling Photographer’s Manifesto, which seeks to do for traveling photographers what Strobist always tried to do for lighting photographers.

Thanks for giving it a look—and for your comments and feedback.


Are you developing a product that intersects with the world of lighting?

After 20+ years of daily shooting and lighting experience as a staff photojournalist, I founded in 2006. For the last ten years running Strobist has put me squarely in the hub of the professional-amateur continuum in all things lighting, intersecting daily with photographers all around the world.

Whether you are in the planning or design phase of a strobe, studio flash, remote trigger, lighting modifier or even a piece of lighting grip, I can help.

I have helped companies create intuitive user interfaces for remotes and flashes that reflect a deep knowledge of the way customers will use their gear in daily workflow. I have helped companies look beyond a juiced guide number rating when designing a reflector for a portable studio strobe.

Put simply, I can help to keep your company from making expensive mistakes—and do so in a cost-effective way. To inquire about remote or in-person consulting, please contact me via email.
