Jim Krause has worked as a designer, a photographer, an illustrator, and a writer (all four in a single day, surprisingly often) since the 1980’s. Over the years, he’s done jobs for a wide range of clients, large and small, including Microsoft, Kodak, Cingular Wireless, Seattle Public Schools, Levi Strauss, Washington Apples, and more. Jim has authored seventeen books about design, digital photography, and creativity. Many are bestsellers and most are available around the world and in multiple languages. He also appears in popular online video courses offered through Lynda.com and Peachpit. When he’s not working, Jim can usually be found clearing his head by riding a bicycle, racing a motorcycle, hiking, drinking great esresso, reading, taking pictures, or doing art projects.
