What People are Saying

About Their Love of Music

"It is unlike anything I've ever seen and what I love about it is the fact that the portraits are just that...not on stage, not 'action' shots. And I also really like the fact that there are plenty of people I know and plenty of people I don't."
- Terry Stewart, President and CEO of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum

"I agreed to write the foreword for Steve's book based on conversation and seeing some sample pictures from the concept. Having returned to my office to find a copy last week, my reaction was that it is amazing work and he should be proud! I'm very pleased to be a part of the project."
- Lester Holt, NBC Weekend Today Show anchor and author of the Foreword

About the Great Smoky Mountains Book

"This is the finest coffee table book we've ever seen on the Great Smokies! Park employees are buying it as gifts."
- Curt, Great Smoky Mountains N.P.

"Richard has a sensitivity for light that's pretty rare. He can coax a richness out of landscapes and low light conditions that you don't see other photographers experiment with. His photographs have an emotional depth that is superior to a lot of other work. It's the best large format photography book we've ever been able to offer our visitors."
- Steve Kemp,
Interpretive Products and Services Director, Great Smoky Mountains Association

"As the name of his company, Quiet Light Publishing, suggests, these are photos that are serene, calming and photographed in beautiful, sometimes subtle light. One doesn't always shout "Wow!" with the exclamation mark immediately because of that innate quietness, but one might whisper a muted "wow" after soaking up a beauty like Sunrise, Newfound Gap, November 2008 or the gorgeous black and white, Cosby Creek, May 2006."
- Steve Begnoche, Managing Editor Ludington Daily News

About Lewis & Clark Book

“Richard Mack’s ember photograph of the Missouri River at twilight gently moves off the page into your soul. I’ve never been absorbed by a photograph in a coffee table travel book as much as this spiritual picture in The Lewis & Clark Trail: American Landscapes.”
- Dave Hoekstra,
Chicago Suntimes

"This may be the most beautiful of the many Lewis and Clark coffee table books published over the past few years. If you've ever wondered what it must have been like to be with Lewis and Clark on their monumental journey, looking at Mack's beautifully rendered images is"
- Tom Dickson, Editor, Montana Outdoors Magazine

Quiet Light Publishing Gives Back

Part of Quiet Light Publishing's Goal

Part of the goal of Quiet Light Publishing is to give back to charities we believe in. To date we have given over $10,000 in donations of books and prints to those we support. These have varied from discounts on books to donations of books and prints to various places like The Pine Top Perkins Foundation, The David “Honeyboy” Edwards Foundation in partnership with the American Blues Museum, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation of Chicago, Chicago Epilepsy Foundation, The Kathleen Dove Cancer Foundation, Youth Job Center in Evanston and several other organizations we believe in.

We do this because part of our business is to educate and enlighten people about the world around them. We believe that by donating books and prints from our collections for the use by these places we are helping not only spread the word about us and also helps these charities to do more for those they help. It is with great pleasure that we help these organizations in any way we can.

We are proud to say that our donations have raised nearly $20,000 for the chariteis we support.

Folios from Quiet Light Books and our Photographer's Personal Projects

We are working on sets of Folio's to be offered from all three books and some of our photographer's work in progress. Sometimes the best way to collect someone's work is in small prints you can easily hold in your hands. These small gems are more intimate than the larger works we produce for hanging in your home or office. These Folios consist of 8-12 prints each approximately 8x10" printed on archival paper and include 3 text signature pages. The expected price will range from $95 to $125.


We are still working on these so please - watch our blog for further information on the release of these Folios's.

We are constantly updating our offerings, so make sure you check back often.

The Lewis & Clark Trail
American Landscapes

Photography by Richard Mack

The Lewis & Clark Trail American Landscapes has won dozens of book awards and been called the ultimate book for those who love the Lewis & Clark trail or landscape photography. Richard travelled the Lewis & Clark trail at the same time of year as the Corps of Discovery did giving the viewers of this fine book the ability to see the trail as the expedition did. With text from the original journals of Lewis & Clark this combination makes for a wonderful piece of history as never before seen. We offer two versions, the standard hardcover and The Limited Edition.

For the ultimate gift, Quiet Light Publishing is pleased to offer the Limited Edition version of The Lewis & Clark Trail American Landscapes. This edition is limited to 200 copies in honor of the 200th anniversary of the expedition. Each copy includes three fine art prints, one from each year the expedition spent on the trail. The book and prints will be signed and numbered by Richard Mack and presented in a leather slipcase. The price will be raised as they sell out. Read more about it and see the Limited Edition Prints on our website.

PLEASE NOTE: The used books are from returns from our distirbutors and stores. They have been used as display copies and have some minor wear, which we believe makes them a great bargain. These are not signed by the artists and are available in limited supply.
