Four articles covering tips on inkjet papers, books and portfolios

Over the past 6-8 months I’ve written four articles for (the same company who publishes Photo District News magazine) on the topics of inkjet paper, books and portfolios. The titles of the articles and direct links to them are below:

Inkjet Paper Tips, Part I: “Fine Art Fiber” Tips and Techniques
Inkjet Paper Tips, Part II: “Fine-Art Matte and Watercolor Paper” Tips and Techniques
Portfolio Tips, Part I: Do-It-Yourself Options
Portfolio Tips, Part II: Outside Printing Sources

The photo shown below is from the article: “Portfolio Tips, Part II: Outside Printing Sources.” A detailed caption follows below that is not in the online article.

Some of these tips are covered in my new book: “301 Inkjet Tips and Techniques: An Essential Printing Resource for Photographers (Course Technology PTR),” which has recently started shipping. Since I wrote the article, there have been many new Fiber semi-gloss and Fiber gloss papers that have been released. Look for updates soon here on

301 Inkjet Tips and Techniques Just About to Start Shipping!

After more than 10 years of working with (and occasionally swearing at) inkjet printers, and two years working on the book, I’m happy to announce that 301 Inkjet Tips and Techniques: An Essential Printing Resource for Photographers will begin shipping on October 9. I’ve seen a copy and I’m extremely proud to have my name on it. In addition to the tips that I contribute, more than 20 photographers and other artists have contributed their tips and techniques, and I can’t wait for all of them to see the book.

I’ll be announcing book-related info on this site, as well as on my site dedicated to photography tips and techniques: The Imaging Buffet. I also welcome comments and questions about the book. You can contact me on this page.

All the best!
