Meet the Author


Matthew Bamberg began his career in the arts as a graduate student at San Francisco State University in 1992. He completed his Master's in Creative Arts in 1997. His catalog of photographs consists of thousands of images from his travels in Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam, Argentina, Uruguay, Canada, Morocco, Russia, the Baltic states and countries throughout Europe. In 1999, Bamberg began photographing mid-century architecture and signage. His prints began selling locally and, later, all over Southern California. In 2005, Bamberg's book Digital Art Photography for Dummies was published. In 2008 Bamberg authored many books for Thomson Learning. His book The 50 Greatest Photo Opportunities in San Francisco, published in 2008, is still popular today. In 2009, his three books from the series 101 Quick and Easy Photography Secrets were published. In 2010, Bamberg authored New Image Frontiers--Defining the Future of Photography. In 2011, he authored Beginning HDR Photography and Photography Applications for Cloud Computing.

Kris Krug is a fashion, music, and portrait photographer, a technologist, and an author based in Vancouver, BC, Canada. He is the owner of Static Photography and is also a teacher and consultant for new media and the Internet. For three years, he was the editor-in-chief of the online magazine *spark, a culture and technology monthly with a philosophical bent. He is the co-author of BitTorrent for Dummies. Kris's photographs have been published in National Geographic, Rolling Stone, Business Week, Financial Times, USA Today, LA Times, PBS, and many other online and print publications.

Greg Ketchum is a former clinical psychologist turned CEO and media workplace and executive coach. He presides over an executive talent firm, providing coaching for executives and Fortune 500 companies. Greg's interest in photography started when he was a child, and he majored in photography as an undergraduate. Once reluctant to embrace digital photography, he has found that the introduction of the iPhone and photography apps have unleashed his creativity in a way that was not possible working only with film. He loves the idea that having his iPhone and photography applications is like having a virtual darkroom in his pocket. Greg received a B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley, an M.A. from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and his Ph.D. from California School of Professional Psychology, Berkeley.

Matthew Bamberg is a generous man - with his knowledge, his ability to instruct, and his prescient sense of where we all are in our use of the current modes of communication and recording of information. He is also sensitive enough to add other minds to his already best selling series of books on photography, and here he introduces Kris Krug, a teacher and consultant on the internet about matters photographic, and Greg Ketchum who among other things create the Coach On Demand Podcast. With experience such as these three men have the reader can be certain that the information and the manner of instruction will be first rate. This is the age of digital imagery and in this particular volume KILLER PHOTOS WITH YOU iPHONE the three men have managed to take the ease of collecting images instantly and then how to make those images develop into professional photographs. For those of us who have yet to purchase one of the many forms of iPhone, this book can just as easily apply to the old type of cellphone we all have - with a lot of variation of finesse. As all good text books this one starts from the top with chapters on iPhone overview and using the iPhone, but then it takes off at a very comfortable speed to make better photos on an iPhone - portraits, places/things/ working with varieties of light, and then takes us through the steps of cropping, resizing, framing and printing, not by taking out the chip and sticking it in your computer photoshop, but by using the iPhone itself as a standalone piece of valuable equipment. The chapters all are illustrated copiously with stage by stage helps on performing the steps written in print with very gracious but invaluable NOTES highlighted in blue that are the error preventers. It is a pleasure to read this book and makes the iPhone seem like a complete photographic machine! Very well done and a must for committed photographers or memory savers! Grady Harp
