I want to share a project that recently started out as notes/worksheets to help a few workshop attendees and turned into a 60 page book. This project has forced me to practice what I’ve been preaching and I hope it can help you or someone you know. So spread the word! It’s already become a Blurb Best Seller.
The book is packed with over 50 creative exercises and ideas to get you thinking creativity about photography, video, audio and multimedia in general. It’s also packed with some great resources, which I plan to post as a PDF download- the resources that is, not the book- but you can get a sneak peak by downloading the first 15 pages of the book as a PDF, here.
My new book is hot off the presses at Blurb! Take a peek and
place your order if you’re so inclined.
I hope you enjoy the book -if you choose to purchase- it’s from the heart, tnxs,
