In Books, Craft & Vision, e-books, News & Stuff by David15 Comments




When I launched SEVEN, my limited edition book, earlier this year, we offered a special edition that included an expanded digital edition. 200 pages long, SEVEN+ was a chance for people who purchased the uber-edition to look at the work on a bus, a plane, anywhere you weren’t going to take a 4lb book that cost over a hundred bucks. Now we’re releasing it to a wider audience for those who just don’t have a hundred bucks but would like to enjoy, and learn from, my best work over the last 7 years. We’re not going to hard-sell this, but we’re releasing it today and those of you that have been asking me for it can now get it.

SEVEN+ is $10, but on sale for $8 this week only. No need for a coupon code but this is the last time (Seriously. I really mean it this time, and don’t “Awww, but Dad…” me). From now on the discounts will be available exclusively through THE CONTACT SHEET – which you should get because it’s got a great monthly giveaway, exclusive discounts, as well as featured resources and inspiration. Sign up for THE CONTACT SHEET at the top of the new website where it says GET EXCLUSIVE DEALS, or follow this link.

NEW C&V Website

Four years ago I launched Craft & Vision. Then it took on this crazy life of its own and we’ve been playing catch-up ever since. Today we’re officially launching the new website and it’s going to make a huge difference in the way you experience Craft & Vision. It’s easier to look at, and easier to navigate. The site now creates bundles which will give you more chances to save on relevant products. We’ll have Gift Cards – finally! And we finally have user accounts so you can track your purchases, re-download them if necessary, and get better support from us. Like anything technology-related there might be a bump or two in the transition,and we’ll handle those as professionally, and humanly, as possible if they arise. I’d love it if you took the new site for a spin. Whole different place, same address –



One of the new features is a mostly-weekly, and completely free, podcast called About The Image – a chance for me to talk image design, with you, using photographs from our readers. Check out the first 3 episodes of About The Image on the new site. They’re already there and waiting for you. More as the days roll on. And if you’d like to submit an image, there’s information on the podcast about that too.



When we started all this we had a long sit-down where we asked ourselves what the voice of C&V is. Why do we do this? And then we stared at our belly buttons for a while before my team turned a video camera on me. The resulting manifesto might resonate with you. We hope it does. Or you can just pause it randomly and freeze my face into weird positions, like I do. You can find that video and downloadable wallpapers with both the manifesto and About The Image themes on the new site as well.

*When a website changes things around the way we have, strange forces are afoot. If you click the links above and get our old site, try clearing your cache, doing a forced refresh of the browser, or even waiting an hour and trying again. It’s dark arts, people, so try turning in circles, lighting candles and singing “What does the fox say?” a couple times. That also might help 🙂


  1. Hey David

    Just checked out this latest episode and noticed you have a couple of prints hanging on your back wall over the printer. What kind of hardware are using as I’m trying to find a way to do the same thing? Thanks.

    1. In other parts of the home I use cable hangers from IKEA, Jay, but in this case it’s just magnets holding prints to a steel beam that’s part of my old building’s architecture.

  2. Cant wait to get home and download Seven and Portraits of Earth books. Do you all still have an ipad app these books can be directly downloaded to the ipad with?

  3. The Manifesto video is absolutely incredible. I could not have said it better myself. Do you mind if I use it in a power point for my beginners photography class?

  4. I really do love that manifesto video and the message it brings. I wish I had the ability to write and communicate like that.

  5. Sparkly new website with fantastic content. What’s not to love?

    Question: When I create my account, does it link to content I had purchased prior to this new upgrade with that same email address? Because mine didn’t…

    1. Steven – We are a little new to this platform, so the honest answer is “I don’t know.” But we’ll look into it. Pretty sure it’s a functionality that will only work moving forward. But truthfully I just don’t know. Shopify is a great platform but a little confusing and we were oversold on some of the features that don’t do what we’re lead to believe. All part of the adventure, I guess…

  6. Hi David, congrats on new site and thanks for Seven+!!!

    Got little technical question… is it possible to add in user account order details links for bought content? As a backup for mail links (also whenever i want i would be able to download everything again then…).
    Also, is it possible to connect previous shopping to new account i had to create (bind ie. by e-mail or card number)? I have many pdf’s bought and has to keep everything in mails…

    Thanks, M.

  7. Will you be adding a way to download the video podcasts, for watching on an iPad while not connected to the internet?
