One of the most common questions I get in my 3-day portrait workshops is, basically, some form of this: “What are all the things I need to know when it comes to shooting a photography session?” My answer is a long one, with a good amount of detail. Yes, I can break down the preparation part and the inspiration part and the gear selection and the process flow part and all the things you need to consider when on a portrait shoot, which is a lot – and then all the aspects to cover when delivering the image. But I also finish by saying, “And that’s only some of it. I could write an entire book on this!” And, so I did.
This manual on how to shoot a photography session is extremely comprehensive. There are also a lot of little things that can make a big difference on not only how well a portrait shoot can go, but also in how much impact the images can have on your subjects. Photography is amazing, and sometimes just following a manual of sorts can help you pull it all together. This Portrait Shoot Playbook is designed to lay it all out as clearly as possible in a step-by-step fashion.
The cost of this entire, detailed guide, which is downloadable and can be used while on a photo shoot for reference, is price at $99. For this pre-sale time, however, there are a couple great offers. First of all, we are running a pre-sale price of $79, but we are only running that price until the book has been released. In addition, I have also had some wonderful support from my favorite print lab, Nations Photos Lab, and they have offered a $25 gift card to all book purchasers. That $25 credit can be used towards any of their offerings, including prints and cards. Use that amount in addition to the promo codes we share on our website, and you can get some amazing products for a very low to no cost.
In addition, Imagely, my favorite source for WordPress themes and plugins. including the amazing NextGen gallery, will be offering a $25 gift card for all pre-order sales! This can be used for the first year of your annual subscription to any of the products at Imagely.com.
AND, On1, my go-to for all of my editing with On1 Photo RAW 2018, is offering $20 off for all purchases, as well as Westcott, my go-to for constant lights and the Ice Light, who are offering $15 Westcott cash. These are ongoing offers, even after the pre-sale!
Altogether this $99 book actually **GIVES** $6 to those that purchase it for the pre-sale price now.
So to recap, the Portrait Shoot Playbook is normally $99. But after you debit:
-$20 Pre-sale price
-$25 Nations Photo Lab credit
-$20 On1 credit
-$15 Westcott credit
-$25 Imagely credit (pre-sale only)
You actually wind up with = +$6 in your pocket!
And, as always, 10% of all sales of The Portrait Shoot Playbook will also go towards Beautiful Together, our non-profit 501(c) organization in support of children waiting for families and those living in extreme poverty. Our current focus is on continuing to build out our Orphan Prevention Care Center. Only two months into this new project, we are seeing some heartening results from this program already.
Playbooks will be sent in pdf format by December 1st, 2017.
