Jeff Kauffman is a photographer and publisher currently working in Austin, Texas. He grew up in rural Pennsylvania during a time when people communicated using rotary telephones. After earning a computer science degree from Penn State University, Jeff moved to Washington DC — and later to Austin – to build a career in software technology consulting. His photography training began at Washington School of Photography and continued with Santa Fe Workshops.

Jeff developed his photography while also working full time in technology consulting. His photography shows an interpretive view of his subjects, presenting lines, structure, character, and sometimes weirdness, in compelling compositions. His work has appeared worldwide in prominent publications and art exhibitions. 

He now communicates with a smartphone and tells dumb jokes.
