My new book, “Food Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots“, is just days away from being on the shelf of your local bookstore! I thought I’d share a short promo video I put together that shares a little bit about the book. Enjoy!

Also, stay tuned to the blog … I’ll be doing book giveaways both here and on Google+, so you’ll all have a chance to get yourself a free copy. And, if you’re not on Google+ yet, feel free to send me a message and I’ll get an invite sent your way.

    I recently stumbled upon your blog and am so incredibly excited for this book!!! I am a beginner photographer that aspires to be a food photographer. This is exactly the book for me. The only reason I haven’t pre-ordered it is because I’m hoping to win a free copy. (But if I don’t, I’m definitely getting it still.) Thank you for sharing your knowledge and skills.

    Love the book.

    I bought my personal copy and am promoting it on my FB page (…scroll to August 11.

    I sent it as a gift to my nice who has aspirations as both a photographer and pastry chef. I also just recommended it to a client of mine who owns a bakery…and expects me to do miracles with the images she sends me! LOL!

    Excellent book! Thank you for your work and for un-complicating the process into something that is not so intimidating any more!
