Continuing the Digital Photography month of GeekSpeak Peter Krogh joins the Geeks with a discussion about his soon to be released The DAM Book: Digital Asset Management for Photographers from O’Reilly. You can take picutres with your right index finger, but what do you do then… digital asset management is the rest of the story.

Peter Krogh is a commercial photographer and author in the Washington DC area. He owns and maintains DigitalPhotographyStandards.com

As a professional and avid personal photographer for more than twenty
years, Peter Krogh is a passionate advocate for both the photographer
and the photograph. His work establishing digitall photography
business standards for ASMP, the American Society of Media
Photographers, led to a position as an Alpha Tester for Adobe, which
has led to his current project, The DAM Book, Digital Asset Management
for Photographers, to be published next month by O’Reilly Media.

The explosion of digital imaging has left photographers drowning in
photographs, with little guidance on how to store, sort and organize
them. Krogh’s book brings simplicity and clarity to this process. He
unlocks the power of new tools that have only recently become
available: Photoshop CS2, the DNG format, and good DAM software. By
showing you how these tools were intended to be used, he saves you from
having to reverse-engineer a workflow. The book is one-third theory -
how to think about the creation of a long-term photo archive – and two
thirds practical step-by-step workflow.

The DAM Book is intended for an audience of professional annd serious
amateur photographers shooting in RAW and using Adobe Photoshp CS2.
