This blog has photos and articles to help you make the most of your photography. Photo techniques, ideas, equipment, news, reviews, and other immediate interest items appear here, along with some featured photographs.  Items of a more permanent nature are posted at my main photography site, JimDoty.com.

I am a published freelance photographer. My landscape, event, portrait, and commercial photography has been published in books, magazines (including several covers), newspapers, calendars, tourism brochures, and on dozens of web sites for corporations, universities, and nonprofit organizations.  My first full length book is Digital Photography Exposure for Dummies.

I’ve been teaching photography for 28 years, including seven years on the faculty at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts. I have been part of the adjunct faculty at Graceland University and for seven years I did photography workshops for The Ohio State University. Upcoming classes, seminars, and workshops are listed here and information about booking me for a class, workshop, or seminar is here.
