Just finished page by page and all I can say is……….

Going, Going, Gone it’s Outta Here……… A Home Run!

A must read for any one contemplating making the move to mirror-less particularly Fuji or
for those like myself who sold their full frame Nikon gear and 2.8 glass and who are constantly looking for the small tips to create big pictures..

Wow! I knew it would be great from the preview pieces you had posted…..but it is beyond that, it’s awesome…….Now, let me go home and pack up all that DSLR gear and move it on so I can start building my Fuji system!!   Thanks, Bill, my virtual bookshelf is now brimming with your e-books!

Just downloaded the Fuji E-book.  After a quick scan through the pages, it looks like a great piece of work.  Your work influenced me to invest in the Fuji XT-1 a few months ago and your book will increase my love for this system.  My 5D MkIII has been staying on the shelf more and more.  

Thank you for your commitment to the craft, your expertise and your testimony.

I have been following your blog for years and have enjoyed it very much. Your e-books are truly a wonderful extension of it. I must say after reading your Fuji X system guide that you have outdone yourself. If I were Fuji I would include a copy of your book with every camera I sold. They could not ask for a better spokesperson. Congratulations on a job very well done.

Downloaded your Fuji book yesterday and read all of it last night.  It was great. I learned so much.  In fact, I liked it so much I downloaded the rest of your books this morning!!

Congratulations on your new Fuji book! I just read it cover to cover. I love the fact that you express your opinion on what you like and dislike about the system. Your tips about settings you use and and what accessories have worked for you were terrific. Your image gallery was spectacular too!  I love my two X-T1s! After 40 years with Nikon, it was a wonderful change to Fuji.  Thanks for being the first guy out there with a Fujifilm X book!




Great book, and one that will be read many times. Thanks for saying what many of us feel about our Fuji systems but have had difficulty putting it into the right words. You’ve really nailed it! And thanks for keeping it simple. Fuji writers should take note and have you do their product manuals.



This is a dream come true for me, to be producing books and writing down so much I want to share!  Here are some of the books coming in 2015!








I’m also planning a 52 week devotional book based on the best of the Pilgrim’s Chronicles called Seeking Peace and Joy.  Lot’s to do, guess I better get busy!

The book is live at the eBook store now!  We caught a break and got things done earlier than expected!  Please feel free to check it out!!  I think Fuji Users will love it, it covers a lot of ground!I had a call from a friend the other day and he asked why so many books so fast!  I’m glad he asked, and I would like to share that with you too!  It’s a big joke with Scott Kelby, he always introduces me as “A man barely alive!”  That came from when we first met and I spoke often about my mortality and Scott, loved teasing me about my penchant for the uncertainty of the end of life!  My father passed away at age 66, and I guess for many years I thought I wouldn’t last much longer than that, you know, heredity and all of that.  Well I’m 68 and will turn 69 in February, I guess I beat the first hurdle! Don’t get me wrong,  I’m not afraid of dying, I know where I will  be when the time comes, and since I’ve survived cancer twice.  No, I’m not afraid for this life on earth to end, but I don’t want to leave anything I meant to do, undone!


I’ve spent a lifetime learning everything I can about the craft of photography, and I just want to get as much of it down on paper, or as it would be a computer file!  I love to teach and share, and for anyone interested I plan to keep cranking them out!


Next up is the Americana Photography, Step -By-Step Guide!  It should be in the eBook store by Friday of next week.  It is 179 pages.  It not only explains how to approach American Photography but has countless illustration of different kinds of Americana Subject matter!  When you get one of the new books if you email me a quote about it and we use it in a blog or on the store, I would love to give you a free book from the store!





Thanks guys for being along for the ride!

Fuji says the official ship date for the 50-140 OIS WR f 2.8 is Thursday the 4th!  That’s tomorrow!  I have mine ordered and paid for so I hope to review it in a few days.  The reviews that are leaking out are pretty amazing.  Bjorn Moerman, who is a guest in my new Fuji X-System Users Guide out Friday the 5th,  had one and shared some images and a wonderful review on Fuji Rumors.  The shot above and page from the user’s guide are courtesy of Bjorn!  I’m really excited about the release of the new book, it turned out to be a massive project ending up over 200 pages!


The book will be available at the eBook store on Friday a.m.  I think it is a very comprehensive look a the system.  I’m sharing some selected pages so you can see what kinds of things are covered!


Can’t wait!
