We’re Ben Long and Rick LePage, photographers, trainers, writers and editors with more than 40 years of experience between us in the world of digital photography and printing.
Ben is the author of Complete Digital Photography, which has been in print since 1999 and remains one of the best selling books in the category. In addition to Complete Digital Photography (now in its 8th edition), Ben has written more than a dozen books on other photo topics, and teaches workshops all over the world, through Juniper Workshops. He also has a fervent following on Lynda.com, where he hosts new classes on everything from Photoshop to camera training to compositional techniques.
Rick has been a technology writer and editor since the early 1980s, ultimately focusing on digital photography and printing. He was one of the co-founders (with Ric Ford) of the influential MacInTouch newsletter in 1985, and over the years has been the editor in chief for MacWEEK, Macworld, and Photoshop Elements Techniques. His photography, also with some of his personal writings, can be found at ricklepage.com
Rick runs Complete Digital Photography Press, which is based in Portland, Oregon. CDP Press will be publishing a number of digital books later this year on such topics as Lightroom Mobile, panoramas, portrait photography and more. We are also working on the 9th edition of Complete Digital Photography, which will be published next year in both digital and print formats. (You can find out a little bit more about our plans here.)
