Anne McKinnell’s Free ebook: “Before The Shutter”

By Dan

March 29, 2012

Photographer, writer, traveler, nomad Anne McKinnell released her brand new eBook today, Before The Shutter: How to prepare for your award-winning photograph.

The book features a collection of great travel photos, plus 28 pages and 7600 words of great tips and insight that she’s gained during her year long road trip around the USA.

Anne wrote Before The Shutter to help other outdoor, travel and landscape photographers get the most out their next photo excursion by walking through the planning stages and all the necessary steps that happen before you take the shot.

Highlights include researching locations, identifying your own creative vision, trip planning, creating a shot list and more. She expands with solid detail in each chapter and she clearly illustrates each tip and idea with wonderful photos. The book is well laid out, clearly written and a real joy to look through. And having been on the road for many months now, Anne has a wealth of great information to share!

I’ve known Anne via the internet for a couple of years now, and it’s been really enjoyable to watch her progress as both a photographer and a writer. In my mind, she’s a great example of someone who’s taking life by the reins and writing the story as she wants it to read. We could all learn a little bit from her just on that account. (Read her insightful guest posts that she’s written here on my blog.)

I’m excited to keep watching Anne in the coming years and see where she goes with her photography and writing. Download your free copy of Before The Shutter, because great photographs should never be left to chance.

Also, read Anne’s excellent and insightful guest posts that she’s written here on my blog.

  • Dan, thank you again for writing such a kind review of my new eBook! It is the support and encouragement from the photo pros like yourself that keep my going on my path. It would be easy to give up thinking a life as a professional photographer is impossible to achieve, but I am determined to make it work. And when I am surprised by reviews like yours, and the huge response yesterday, it energizes me and spurs me onward. Thank you!!

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
