About Mikkel Aaland
Mikkel Aaland is an award-winning photographer, workshop leader, and best-selling author of Shooting Digital, Photoshop RAW, Photoshop Lightroom 2 Adventure, and many more digital photography books. Since 2001 Aaland has been a regular guest on G4's Call For Help TV Program with Leo Laporte. In 2003 he was a guest columnist for newsweek.com. In 2004, Shooting Digital was named the best "Digital Photography" book of the year by the Designer's Bookshelf.
Aaland has been a pioneer in digital photography, an interest that dates back to a 1980 interview he conducted with Ansel Adams. When Aaland asked Adams what he would be pursuing if he were just starting out, Adams discussed at length his fascination with digital photographs of the planets. Aaland has pursued this new technology since its infancy. During the 1980s he reported on digital photography as west coast editor of the Swedish FOTO magazine, and wrote a column on the subject for American Photographer magazine. Aaland is one of the few original Adobe Lightroom's alpha and beta user, and he served as an unpaid advisor on the project for over a year.
