Applications stories

My specialty is application stories, showing how people use a product, practice or principle to make their lives better. Applications stories are the perfect mix of technology, human interest and social proof. They are compelling and ideal for any message to any audience in any market.
Words. Images. Information. Just for you.

Welcome

Whichever of my four markets connects us, here’s where you’ll find out more about what I do and how it benefits you.

Blogs

My first three blogs are now posted. Companion videos for each will be available soon. Blogs are listed by category on the Blogs page.

“Just for you” is key.

For more than three decades I’ve been providing words, images and information exactly tailored to meet the needs of individual clients in specific markets.

Markets

The four markets I serve are shown in the navigation bar and appear in the order in which I began serving them: 1985 - trade and consumer periodicals 1991 - bicycling and destination marketing organizations 1995 - heavy equipment 2013 - Christianity Each page has more information specific to that market as well as links to resources with more information on my involvement in that market. The Gallery page has samples of photos from each market. The Blogs page is a placeholder for the moment.

Progression

Similarly there’s been a progression of the services I offer: Words My staple since I first appeared on op/ed pages in the 1970s. Images Soon after I sold my first feature article in 1985, I bought cameras and gear so I could offer complete packages of text and photos to clients. I added video in the mid-2000s. Nearly all my imagery is from point-of-use (field, shop, job site, etc.); I do very little studio work. Information Clients need good information whether to make their own decisions or to share with their customers who then use the information to make decisions. The information I provide is based on extensive research, presented in an accessible format and with counterviews, where appropriate.
