Call for Participants





I am the Editor and a contributing author for a next generation bloodstain pattern analysis (BPA) textbook.  The book is scheduled to be published by CRC Press, Taylor & Francis Group, in late 2021 or early 2022.

To supplement the articles and chapters being written for the book, I am seeking high quality, high resolution photographs that show bloodstain patterns of all types, injuries and wounds, bloodstain crime scenes, crime scene documentation and other relevant images of BPA subject matter.  All image contributions will be credited to the submitter and their agency in the image description.  

If you are interested in contributing images to this project or would like more information, please contact me at:
