Over the last five months I have been slowly updating and adding tons of new content to my e-book entitled Location Lighting for the Outdoor Photographer. I am happy to announce that I have finished updating the e-book and the new 2nd Edition is now available for purchase on my website. I have updated every chapter in the e-book and have massively expanded a few of them as well, including Chapter 1, which covers lighting gear, and also Chapter 7 (opening spread shown below), which covers Advanced Lighting Techniques.
There are so many lighting books to choose from these days you might be wondering, “How is this one different?” This is the only book that I know of that concentrates on lighting techniques for the outdoor and adventure photographer specifically. This book gets down to the nuts and bolts of using artificial lighting in remote locations. As with my other books, I hold nothing back and tell it like I see it. The opening chapter has a detailed analysis of all the battery-powered strobes on the market today and compares them head-to-head to help you make a smart decision when considering new gear. In that chapter, we also discuss flashlights, reflectors, and Speedlights. I can honestly say that I have not seen any other book on the market today that includes as much detailed and comprehensive information as this e-book does on using artificial lighting for the outdoor photographer.
When I published the first version this e-book, way back in February 2013, Elinchrom’s Hi-Sync and Profoto’s HSS technology didn’t even exist yet. Elinchrom hadn’t brought out the ELB 400 and Profoto had not introduced the B1 yet. Hence, in this new updated version of the Location Lighting e-book, I have massively expanded those chapters dealing with these new advanced lighting technologies and I discuss in-depth how some of my best known Hi-Sync images have been made. There are also step-by-step instructions on how to achieve an accurate flash exposure when using Hi-Sync (HS) techniques. For a full list of all the updated and new sections in the book pop on over to my website for the full description.
If you are looking to take your photography to the next level this book can help you accelerate that progression. For photographers, both amateurs and working pros, looking to take advantage of the new technology built into the latest battery-powered strobes, this book will help you to figure out how to use these technologies and also how to take advantage of them to create new and exciting images. As an example, over the last five years or more that I have been playing with Hypersync and Elinchrom’s Hi-Sync, I have created an entire new portfolio of work that really stands out from anything I did before. Especially in the adventure photography and location portraiture genres, these new high speed flash sync technologies are allowing photographers to create images that were never possible before.
Below are a few screenshots of double-truck spreads from the updated e-book. As you can see this is no fluffy e-book. With 361 pages, this is a full on book and it is significantly longer than many printed books on similar topics. This e-book is high resolution and looks great on any computer, tablet or mobile phone.

Also, please note that I have increased the price of this e-book to $28 USD, which reflects the incredibly hard work put into it over the last five months. Also note that there is no discount or upgrade offer for the new version of the book because I have added so much more material, revamped the entire book and it took so long to put it together.
