Mark S. Johnson

My good friend and fellow photographer has just released his original "how to" book on flower photography, now also as an "E Book". I have his original soft cover edition and it's amazing! Not only is he a great photographer, but also a talented "Guru/Photoshop" teacher and educator!

People, both professionals and those just beginning to enjoy capturing great images of flowers and nature, will learn tips and techniques on all levels. He's out in Boulder, Colorado and leads workshops and also gives private lessons all over the U.S.

He still has a limited supply of the original soft bound book, if that's what you prefer.

Here's his web site, full of information and tutorials:

Thanks for sharing, Rich!! I don't see any soft-covers on his website, but I may go ahead and order one of the hard covers from him, personally. If you look up this book on Amazon, it goes for over $300 !!!

I can get it for you for $150!!! LOL! I think that's a mis-print and mine was around $26 or so. I'll send him an email and see what he says, Last time I spoke with him, a week or so ago, he had about 750 books left from his original printing,
