Within The Frame Giveaway: Deluxe Edition


Last month I walked into a bindery with two copies of Within The Frame (which is 5 years old this month!) and asked them to make a very special edition of this book. I just picked them up and they’re gorgeous! Custom bound in rich brown goat leather, with black end papers, and silver embossing, there’s not another one like these two books. I’m keeping one for myself, and the other I will sign and give away.

Never in a million years would I have imagined Within The Frame would be so successful; my only real goal for it was that it be important to the readers that found it. They say you should write the book that you yourself want or need, so that’s what I did with Within The Frame. That people already consider it a classic, and send me photographs of their dog-earred copies all over the world, tells me I did that. I couldn’t be more grateful. So I’m hoping this one will replace a copy that’s bedraggled and well-loved and will give you years more pleasure.

At the end of this month I’ll draw a name from the comments below and this very special edition, and send it out, with my thanks. And you could be the one getting it.

All you have to do is leave a comment with your favourite quote from the book, or tell me what this book has meant to you. And then at the end of the month, I’ll draw a name and email one lucky winner for a shipping address. (Comments are now closed. The winner will be announced on May 30/14)

If you’ve read Within The Frame I’d love to hear from you. I can’t wait to see who gets this ridiculously nice edition. Thanks to everyone that read it, left an Amazon review (you can still do that!), or told their friends they needed to read it (you can still do that too!). I’m so grateful; thank you! What a great 5 years it’s been – thanks for making it so special.

TEN. Yours Free.

4 years ago I wrote a small eBook called TEN, Ten Ways to Improve Your Craft Without Buying Gear. It changed my life and put me on a path to do what I love: teaching photography and pursuing projects I long to do. Later this month we’ll celebrate our 4th anniversary of Craft & Vision, […]

Printing Hokkaido

After narrowing down my Hokkaido work through my edit process, I’m now left with a collection of images to print. Here’s my rough process. 1. Image Prep. I take each image through a final pass in Lightroom’s Develop module. Here are the questions I’m asking myself as I go through the panels. Is my monitor […]
