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 magazine covers), tourism brochures, calendars, and on web sites for corporations and nonprofit organizations.  My first full length book is Digital Photography Exposure for Dummies.  I am available to do portrait and commercial photography in central Ohio, as well as photograph special events.

I’ve been teaching photography for 21 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 I teach 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.
