Regarding the new book, "My wife Ann, her dad Geoff Fricker, and her brother Geoff are all life-long photographers. We have spent decades discussing, sharing, and appreciating the art and process of photography. Someone always seems to have a camera nearby. I have learned from them and been inspired by them. We four have very different styles (and equipment), but there are aesthetics we share. They are an important part of the making of this book. Their influence is on every page."
