This post is a collection of some of my favorite publications from over the years. There are projects I produced, stories about me and my work, and some collaborations. In any case, enjoy!
Baltimore Sun Street Photographer Series - Video Profile
The Baltimore Sun produced a short video about my back alley portrait project. Videographer and producer Jon Sham did an amazing job, and I am eternally in his debt for not making me look like an idiot when editing my interview.

The Biden Family Holiday Card Shoot
A few years ago I photographed the annual holiday card for Vice President Joe Biden and family. Baltimore Magazine got wind of the assignment and did a little interview with me: http://weddings.dennisdrenner.com/weddings/blog-entry/biden_holiday_card_photo_shoot
Petapixel Feature On My Back Alley Portraits
PetaPixel is a really popular photography blog, and I was honored when they featured my back alley portrait project on their site. A link to that story here: http://petapixel.com/2016/04/01/shoot-portraits-strangers-backyard/
Articles at Digital Photography School
I've recently starting writing some articles about photographic tricks of the trade. Here's a piece I wrote about using reflectors for the massive Australia-based photo blog Digital Photogaphy School: http://digital-photography-school.com/6-ways-of-using-reflector-to-take-better-portraits/
And here's another article on using bounce flash: http://digital-photography-school.com/how-to-use-your-on-camera-speedlight-to-do-bounce-flash-effectively/

One From The Archives: Afghan Refugees in Pakistan
I was amazed to find this story still online. I went to Pakistan in 1998 on a Fulbright Scholarship, and after I came back I did a piece about Afghan refugees for a site called journale.com (now musarium). In addition to a photo slideshow, the feature included audio clips of me talking about the photos and my experience. This was cutting edge stuff at the time! It's cool to have my voice from that time saved on the web. I seem so serious looking back.
