Ongoing: My wife and I operate a small regional publishing company together.
My wife, Susan O'Dell Underwood, and I started a small, independent publishing company during the summer of 2014. Our goal at Sapling Grove Press is to publish just a handful of smart, well-crafted books of poetry, literature, and visual art each year, with a concentration on giving support to unique, substantial voices from the Southern Appalachian region of the USA. Our first book was released in July 2014, and our secord book was released in January 2015. I was the juror and editor of our third book, RICH COMMUNITY: AN ANTHOLOGY OF APPALACHIAN PHOTOGRAPHERS, which was released in late June, 2015. We are currently working on editing a novel by respected author and story-teller Mary Bozeman Hodges, hopefully to be released in late 2018. Please check us out, at: www.saplinggrovepress.com.
Ongoing: My stock photography is now represented by Universal Images Group:
From 2002 until the company closed in December of 2010, my stock photography was represented by the Omni-Photo Communications Company, in New York. Through the wonderful and very professional Omni-Photo company, I had dozens of single-image photographs published in a variety of types of publications. These good folks have gone out of business, but have transfered my images to the stock photo business, Univeral Images Group, which (since late 2011) now represents my stock photography work and has facilitated the publication of many dozens of my photographs in a wide international variety of types of publications.
