Rollie Johnson. This was taken during a break in shooting for Rollies article on thin-kerf blades. I love how the crowed almost chaotic shop surrounds his moment of quiet.
Michael Fortune. This was taken on my first photo shoot. Although it might seem Michael is scowling at me, he isnt. Hes deep in thought.
Hank Gilpin. This was taken just a few weeks ago. I was visiting Hank for an upcoming video workshop. We had just finished eating lunch, which he made. He is scowling at me, but in jest.
Dan Chaffin. Dan is a great designer and woodworker, and a lot of fun to boot. It was on this photo shoot where I came across the bacon doughnut. I ate really well on this trip.

When I go on a photo shoot for an article, I can take as many as 700 or 800 pictures. Typically, no more than 20 to 30 would make into the article. So there are a ton of never seen photos hidden away. Among them there are typically a handful of candid shots. Once my lights are set up, it isn't too much trouble to get a few pictures of the author justing being himself. And we need shots like that for the contributors' page in the magazine.

I've pulled together some of my favorites and posted them here. Take a look and enjoy. I think that in all of the photographs, you can see the playfullness and joy of the authors.

Are you still having trouble? Everything works fine for me.
