I am very happy to announce my new e-book entitled Location Lighting for the Outdoor Photographer. This e-book is a 277 page e-book and is packed with pretty much everything I know about using artificial lighting in the outdoors. If you are looking to take your photography to the next level and want to incorporate artificial lighting into your images then this book will give you all the tools to do just that. This e-book is filled with detailed lighting diagrams and examples, an extensive chapter on equipment and flash accessories, advanced flash techniques and so much more.

There are so many lighting books to choose from these days you might be wondering, “How is this one different?” This is the first 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.

If you have read any of my other books or e-books then you know I pack as much as possible into them and cover all the bases. This book is no different. I have held nothing back and in this book I share with you all of my lighting secrets and techniques.

This Location Lighting e-book discusses a wide range of topics including:
