About the Author:

Brian & Janet Stoppee own M2 Media Studios, Inc., based in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, west of Washington, DC. Before buying a few rural acres, they owned studios in Richmond, Virginia and New York City. Brian has his bachelor's degree from Lock Haven University, where he studied lighting and theatre design while doing photography, advertising, public relations, and producing shows for the Sloan Fine Arts Center. He majored in fine arts and minored in communications. Janet has her bachelor's degree from the University of Delaware in Visual Communications where she studied advertising, photography, and illustration with some of the advertising community's finest. They've been using computers long before the Macintosh was introduced and had version 1.0 of many of the software applications that have become a mainstay of image-making production. Brian's first book, "The Photographer's Guide to Using Light” has sold over 90,000 copies. With illustrations by Janet, it was the first project they worked on together. In 1995 they pioneered weather and the environment in the web and on the air at NBC, in Washington.

Review:

*"This new book by Brian and Janet Stoppee is a must read from cover to cover.  The technical content is easy to understand and the images and illustrations are in a league of their own.  Certainly a must have for image-makers at any level." -- Tom Waltz, Wescott

*"Brian and Janet, you light up our world!  You have successfully put on paper what you know and love.  Image-makers from yesterday, today and tomorrow will benefit from your passion and expertise." -- Eileen Healy, Chimera

*"Written by photographers full of passion for their craft, Stoppees' Guide to Photography & Light takes the reader from photo basics through choosing the right lens, monitor color calibration, lighting and lighting controls in a variety of situations and more.  This book is a comprehensive guide to studio and location photography, truly one of the best books of its kind." -- Mike Milli, Omegasatter, Manufacturer of Novatron

*"The quality of the image, regardless of the medium is the direct result of the image-maker and his or her knowledge.  Photography and Light is a book of knowledge for anyone seriously interested in producing the very best product.  The author incorporates current, contemporary equipment with a fresh and new approach to explaining the reasons and the results." -- Ed Phillips, Matthews Studio Equipment

*"A fantastic tool for enhancing knowledge beyond traditional lighting. -- Joel Svendsen, Photo, Film and Video Market Manager at Rosco Laboratories

*" ...an invaluable resource for anyone who is serious about digital photography and printing.  It avoids the 'geek speak' that proliferate so many other books on the subject, and provides common sense tips that help get the most from your camera and printer.  I will certainly be recommending it to all our customers." -- Tony Martin, President of INK2IMAGE
