About the Author:

Michael Peres joined the teaching faculty of Rochester Institute of Technology’s School of Photographic Arts & Sciences in 1986. He is a professor of biomedical photography and teaches photomicrography, biomedical photography and other related applications of photography in science. He served as the chair of the biomedical photographic communications department from 1989 until June 2010 when he was appointed associate administrative chair of the School. Peres has enjoyed a varied photographic career that began in 1973. Some of his professional activities include serving the coordinator of the R·I·T Images from Science project as well as one of the coordinators of the RIT Big Shot project. Peres has received numerous awards including the 2003 RIT Eisenhart outstanding teaching award and the Gitner prize (2x) presented by the RIT College of Imaging Arts & Sciences for outstanding achievement in the graphic arts. In 2007 Peres was awarded the Schmidt medal by the BioCommunications Association for lifetime achievements in the field of bio-communications.

Review:

"A huge volume of knowledge, we would call this book no less than a bible... it is something to be studied and not simply read. Every serious photographer should have a copy of The Focal Encyclopedia of Photography, and anyone who is genuinely interested in learning, will find himself going over its pages again and again."--Better Photography

"There is hardly an aspect of photographic practice and equipment that is not covered in this encyclopedia." -- The Picture Professional, Quarterly Magazine of the American Society of Picture Professionals, third issue 2007

"This work is without doubt one of the most important single-volume encyclopedias in print."

"It is a must purchase for all public and academic librabries, and the relatively low price puts it within reach of most individuals who are involved in the photographic arts."
-CHOICE (Nov. 2007)
