Rick Doble is the author of the book: Experimental Digital Photography (Lark Books/Sterling Publishing, New York/London, 2010) now in its second printing. It is the first book about experimenting with photographic effects with digital photography. He has written two other books on digital photography as well. He has owned a digital camera since 1998. He went online with his own website in 1997:

He has been a professional photographer for 40 years and has a Master's Degree in Communications (1974) from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

In the last two years his ideas about the expressive potential of digital photography, its ability to record space/time imagery and the relation between such imagery and modern art movements such as the Futurist Movement have been widely presented at conferences, exhibits and publications in Europe (Italy, Romania, Portugal, U.K.). See the article Motion And Dynamism: A Mathematical Journey Through The Art Of Futurism And Its Future In Digital Photography in the Journal Of Applied Mathematics

He was interviewed about his experimental work on NPR radio

Before digital photography he worked with wide variety camera and film formats. He has spent more hours in the film darkroom than he would like to remember.
