David Hobby studied photojournalism at the University of Florida before spending 20 years as a staff photojournalist. As a photographer for the Baltimore Sun, he learned how to create a wide range of light using small flashes off-camera. In 2006, David launched the web site Strobist.com, an archive of more than a thousand articles. Since then, more than two million people have visited the site to learn how to better control their small flashes. David teaches lighting workshops all over the world and works as an editorial and commercial freelance photographer.
