I needed a great author photo for my Amazon author page, my website, and all the other book promo sites. The image above is the best I could do on my own. Fortunately, I knew Jeff Cable (his blog here), an amazing professional photographer with the requisite skills to make a nearly bald, middle-aged man look good. Ok, better. We had a blast brainstorming ideas until we realized we didn’t have a corporate budget behind us. That meant the exotic location shots, expensive aerial stunts, and special effects were out. Settling for the next best option, we drove 10 minutes to the nearest Redwoods forest and he shot the pictures.

Enjoy! Which is your favorite?
