In a Second Book by Bruce Munro

Published in Second Bruce Munro Book I had work in the first book about the "Artist in Light" Bruce Munro. A second, smaller book is out and I am also in it with 4 other photographers. Although I had a full page photo in the first book, I have a two page spread in the smaller book. Thanks Bruce Munro and Sea Hill Press!

They will also be on sale at Longwood Gardens which is where I photographed his art installation a couple of years ago.

Yet Another Remake: Kroeger (The Ghost in the Piano)

Improved version of my first hybrid video. I made the wind sound on this one myself instead of a slightly over-the-top 3rd party one, and some other minor tweaks. More "evolutionary" than "revolutionary" as I learn more about making these. Watch in full HD!
