Author Photo

I had never had a headshot taken. To be honest, it didn’t appeal to me to look right into the camera and attempt to appear natural. For the author photo of my last books, I used a picture from when I was a child, or an image I had laying around.

This time around, for Lint Boy, it looked like a professional author photo was the right way to go, especially because Kelvin Jones, an amazing photographer offered to help me out. Here are some of his shots.
Kelvin was able to make me feel comfortable in front of the camera, and it wasn’t such a bad experience after all.
And he created this fun and informative video of a Nomadic School of Wonder workshop I gave.
More of Kelvin’s work.
