Hot Shoes Hot Off Press; Yours For Free.

showcover

Joe McNally has been slaving away on his recent book. It’s now done and only weeks away from being released. I share the same publisher as luminaries like Joe, Vincent Versace, and Scott Kelby. How I got past the selection committee for this club I have no idea, but if I keep my head down and not make too much noise I’m hoping they’ll never discover the error of their ways. I digress. Joe’s book is coming and the fine folks at Peachpit Press are giving away three copies of The Hotshoe Diaries, Big Light From Small Flashes.

All you have to do to get in on the action is leave a comment with your name, your email in the email field, and give me your word that you’ll download the PDF  sample material of the book (you can do that by clicking HERE, which will download the PDF). Joe knows his stuff and whether you use off-camera strobes  a lot or only a little, you will learn much about the quality of light that will only benefit you, even if you’re one of those natural-light-only purist types.

Following 2 months after the release of The Hotshoe Diaries will be Within The Frame, a book that has the dubious distinctions of both being abbreviated as WTF, and being written by me. So when WTF comes out, we’ll do another giveaway. Or maybe I’ll lean on Joe and let him do the honours on his blog :-)

Ok, free Joe books. Who’s in?

As always, this is a randomn draw. I’ll pick 3 names on or near the official release of the book, email you for your address, and ship these when they arrive here from the publishers.

Bruce Percy

It’s not often I look at a landscape photographer’s work and am possessed by an immediate desire to see all of it, travel with him, learn from him, but yesterday I watched a podcast by Bruce Percy on his travels in Patagonia and I’ve been able to think of nothing else. He does a workshop […]

Inspired.

I’ve spent the last 2 mornings at what has quickly become my favourite place in Kathmandu. Where it is doesn’t matter, and truth be known I’m not sure it’s the kind of place that would benefit by being over-run with photographers. In broad strokes it’s a place where people go to spend their last days. […]
