Photo by Amber Shumake, 2018.

I’m a writer and editor based in Fort Worth, Texas. I've spent over two decades as a journalist covering the internet and the future of communications for CRN, D Magazine (D CEO), Light Reading, Red Herring, UPSIDE magazine and others. 
I'm a photographer, as are we all. 
My portraits are simple, straightforward and usually shot on black & white film. In each one, to some degree, I'm using an abstraction of my subject's likeness to reveal a little bit about what I'm feeling.  
My other photos -- the textures, tourist traps and city scenes -- are "thank you" notes to the piles of magazines that showed me a world beyond public school libraries and windowless churches.
