I just got word that my book Digital Masters: Adventure Photography is now available and is shipping from Amazon.com. This is a major surprise to me as the publisher told me there was no way they could get it out before January 1st. I guess they worked something out – haven’t heard back from them just yet with the holidays but Amazon has the book in stock and will be shipping them today to folks that have pre-ordered the book. In fact, I heard about all of this from one of my newsletter subscribers who emailed me to let me know that he got an email from Amazon, who said the book would ship today (the day after Thanksgiving) and arrive early next week. So for those of you that pre-ordered the book, it is on the way.
Here is the book description from the publisher, Lark Books:
This beautifully produced guide by Michael Clark is the newest entry in the Digital Masters series, as well as the first book on a fast-growing photographic genre: shooting today’s popular extreme outdoor sports, from mountain biking and ice climbing to surfing, kayaking, and more.
Clark is one of the world’s most respected adventure photographers, and he offers sage advice—gained from years of hard-earned experience—on equipment, techniques, and the specific skills required to get in on the action. Learn to capture fast-moving subjects and deal with harsh conditions and horrible weather—even when you’re hanging from ropes and riggings in a squall. Of special interest is the Portraiture and Lifestyle chapter, which covers increasingly in-demand techniques.
If you haven’t gotten ordered a copy of the book yet, Amazon has them in stock and you can find it here.
