WTF! IS HERE! (Almost)


A year ago this thing was little more than a crazy “what if…?” that I couldn’t shake from my brain. Now it’s on the home stretch to being 260-something printed pages. A book.


The book goes to the printer on Friday, so those of you who pre-ordered, the end is in sight. And by “in sight” I mean it’s still a month or so away. The release is on May 11, which means books ship from the publishers to the retailers. Amazon will have them soon after that, as will Borders, Barnes and Noble, Powell’s, and in Canada, Chapters and Indigo. In other words, if you have a favourite bookseller, it oughta be there. Can’t wait? Gotta have some WTF right now? Lucky you, I can scratch that itch. And if you want to order it now there’s a link at the bottom to get it straight from the publisher, complete with discount (enter coupon code: PSUAPRIL during checkout to save 35%) and free shipping. Rather shop at Amazon? Within the Frame on Amazon.com Yer a Barnes & Noble kind of reader, THIS one’s for you.

Downloadable Sample
The publisher, Peachpit, has put a downloadable sample PDF online for download HERE.

Scott Kelby Weighs In
Waiting to hear some reactions before you get in on the pre-order action? Scott Kelby’s read the book and the publisher forwarded this to me this morning. Needless to say it made my day. Second proudest moment of my professional life. The first was reading the Foreword that Joe McNally wrote for the book. But it wasn’t a fair fight. Joe used 1,000 words, Scott used 100:

“David has done something here that few have ever done, which is to not only show his absolutely captivating images, but the thought process behind the same, and how to start capturing the type of images we all long to take. His teachings on composition are worth the price of the book alone, but this book goes beyond that to really help you start to see the light, to start to see the process of how amazing images happen, and most importantly he gives you the tools to create them yourself, and I think that more than anything will make this book an overnight success. The way he’s structured this book is just spot on, and this will the THE book for anyone into shooting editorial style travel or people (or just learning about photography from a broader scope). People will be talking about this book for years to come. It’s that good! Highly recommended!”

I’m giggling like a schoolgirl over here. A schoolgirl who’s been dipping into the grown-up punch bowl when no-one’s looking. It’s not pretty, folks :-)

Like PB & J

I had to laugh and share this with you. I logged on to Amazon.com to get the link for my book when I found this: It’s Joe McNally’s latest book, The Hotshoe Diaries, paired with my book, Within The Frame. And you can get both for $52.78. I’m one of the few on the planet […]

Ha Noi

Of all the places we visited in January, Ha Noi was perhaps the one the least connected with me. I had a great time there, but visually it failed to connect with me the way I had hoped and that was a disappointment. But it’s not you, Ha Noi, it’s me. I came in with […]

Bangkok was more of a layover than a destination on this trip; a place to meet up with colleagues and take a breather. We shot the local vegetable market, the Grand Palace, and assorted streets and alleys. But mostly we talked, and ate, so this one’s a short one. Best Hostel I’ve Stayed In. We […]
