Like Royalty

The other day, I received a royalty statement for three of the books I did photography for. While sales didn’t warrant a check, I began to tally in my head the number of books sold over the years with my name on them. All told, a dozen titles published over a 15-year time span reached over 100,000 copies! Just like the work I produced, it’s an accomplishment I’m proud of. Below are a few of my favorite book photos.
