When a friend recently suggested I do an eBook, I was not immediately on board.
First, I know that they are a ton of work, with very little payoff. After all, eBooks aren’t making very many millionaires out there.
Second, I may be on the road now, but I feel like I have less “free” time now than I did when I lived in the city. And third, what the heck do I know about creating an eBook!?
“So what’s the point?” I thought to myself.
“Well, they’re a way you can give back a little,” he said. “You can reach a whole new segment of your following. The people that can’t necessarily afford the time or expense of doing one of your workshops… Or just the people who are the ‘do it yourselfers.'”
That part resonated with me. I’ve always been the “do it yourself” type. Opting to do the research myself rather than go on a workshop.
I’ve since changed a little and take workshops at least once a year when I can, because I see the benefit of working closely with others, but I still relate to this other segment of folks who follow my work.
But I wasn’t satisfied with the “old way” of doing books. I wanted this to be an experience that puts all the tools needed to get the most out of a photo trip right at the finger tips of anyone reading.
So I set out to make a fully interactive, organized information dump that people can carry right on their cell phone, on location, or read on their tablet on a flight, or simply cross-reference and research from their home computer while in the planning phase. Wherever and whenever.
I am excited to announce the first in a (hopefully) long series of National Park photography guides, The Photographic Guide To Rocky Mountain National Park.
It’s available for direct purchase and download on my website right now, and soon to be available on Amazon.
Please check it out. I’d love to know what you think. You can also download a free sample HERE.
Soon to follow, Grand Teton, Big Bend, and Yellowstone.
