My brand new ebook is here. It’s called ZEN PHOTOGRAPHER. It’s 81 pages of rock solid tips, creative insight, intellectual tidbits and mantras that are all designed to ignite your imagination and inspire your photography.
Here’s the deal. YOU LOVE PHOTOGRAPHY. If you’re like me, you probably love it with a passion. However, passion only gets you so far. In order to stay focused and make good decisions, we sometimes need a few tips and helpful hints that can help guide us along and save us some time and trouble. Usually, we look for those tips from people who’ve been there before; people who have been through the trials and have found success. That’s where ZEN PHOTOGRAPHER comes in.
ZEN PHOTOGRAPHER is a collection of essays, photographs and insight that have been pulled from my 22 years as a photographer, 17 of those I’ve spent as a working pro in a very tough industry. My goal with this book is to help you turn your passion for photography into a dedicated focus and reduce some of the bumps along your own road.
Consider ZEN PHOTOGRAPHER a well-rounded education from someone who dove in head first many years ago, fought his way to the surface and is still swimming in an ocean of very big waves.
To create this book, I dove deep into the archives of my blog and also through the dark corners of The Photoletariat, where I wrote as Senior Contributor for two years. Pulling out what I felt were some of my most insightful articles, I threw them on the table, cut them apart and expanded each one with additional material and new ideas.
Then I threw in some images. Big ones. Full page. Some of my favorites. With text. Not too much text, just enough to get your brain spinning and get you thinking about how you can apply intriguing concepts to your own imagery. Some of the text is purely anecdotal; the first things the image brought to mind.
There’s something for everyone in this book, regardless of style, ability, gear or pro/amateur status, because it’s not about hardcore technical information that’s specifically targeted to one level or another. It’s about ideas, concepts, approach, methods and general attitudes towards photography and the craft of image making, whether for fun or profit.
In the end, I hope know that this book will make a difference for you. Even if helps you look at one specific area of photography in a new way, then consider it a worthwhile purchase, because success comes in small steps on a big ladder.
Here’s an excerpt from the foreword, which was written by a professional photo industry editor who also happens to be an amateur enthusiast photographer. She found the book to be highly motivational and useful on both levels.
“This book conveys the true energy of Dan. It is honest, straightforward, inspiring, and-quite frankly-a motivational kick in the butt… a culmination of years of photo journaling, self-teaching, ups and downs, and epiphanies that Dan has kept track of and is now able to share with photographers asking similar questions in an ever-changing industry.
“I’ve [read] hundreds of photography books and manuscripts for beginners, pros and all levels in-between, [and] they’re often written from an “I’m up here and you’re down there” standpoint. Dan’s humble words come from the heart – with a sense of camaraderie – like you are sitting down for coffee with a friend who has been there, done that, and want’s to make sure you stay on your personal A game, no matter what your game is.
“You’ll read this book over and over if you start to feel stuck or lazy. I hope your camera battery is charged because you’ll want to run out and shoot immediately after consuming these honest and open thoughts from Dan. Listen to him.”
