Hi guys,


just wanted to share that I wrote a book about flash photography. (0:

Concentrates on more modern technics and how to use off camera flash in reportage situations.


Was a great experience and not that difficult. Got published and is now available throughout Germany.


Itīs in German though...

That's awesome. It must be rewarding to get all the random thoughts down in one glorious place.

How much work for you would it be to translate to English and publish? You'd sell at least one.

Congrats! And just in time for me to be able to read it translated in real time via Apple's augmented reality software kit. It's only a matter of weeks before you can point your phone at text and have it translated real time.

Are you self publishing or did you get a publisher/ Distributor?
How many copies are being printed and are you selling them through book stores or online or doing those digital book things that can be downloaded.

Ha, I see where you are heading (0:

Itīs printed and published by a regular publisher.
1500 copies, more if needed
bookstores. Amazone, e-book (Kindl)
no regular download

and, I do not make much money with it.

Not to steal Apple's thunder, but you've been able to do this for years. I think the app I use is called WordLens or something like that, pretty handy when traveling, even works offline. I think Google translate can do it too.

Yeah, I know a bit about this and that writing the book is one thing, getting someone to back it is quite another. I had a friend write a few books about 10 years ago and know that getting published and distributed is not easy. It took a lot to get someone to publish her and when they did the book took off and did a number of printings. She ended up doing another 2 books which were successful as well.

The fact you have a publisher and distributor running that many first copies to me is more credit to you than writing the book itself. Anyone can do that and they can self publish, but to me, having a bit of insight to it, It's a much more substantial thing to get someone else in the game to put their arse on the line because they believe in what you have done.

Congrats to you. That is an achievement and a solid one.
You may not make a lot from the book but when you go on the road doing seminars and flogging Merch ( better design a flash modifier!) you'll clean up! :0)

Congrats on the book! I've followed you here even before your prism period (ha!) and have always respected your vision and courage to follow the beat of your own drum. In a sea of sameness your work was/is often refreshing.

I have a friend in Germany who works for a commercial studio near Augsburg and she plans to get into photographing weddings on the weekend. Where can she get a copy?
