Hi everyone, it's a very exciting day at Camera Labs, as I have just finished work on our very first eBook!

Image

http://www.cameralabs.com/photography_b ... otography/

'The Art of Photographing Wildlife' was written and photographed by our very own forum member Wolfsong / Mike Kiss, so many of you will already be familiar with his work. It's an expanded and refined version of the guide he posted previously in the forum, and describes how to approach and photograph a wide variety of wildlife from birds and animals to insects and marine life, while always respecting them and the environment.

The eBook is 70 pages long and is in the PDF format. It's designed to work on computers, laptops and tablets, and looks great on the iPad!

The bottom line? It costs $9.97 USD and any profit is shared between Mike and myself, so if you're interested in wildlife photography and would like to support us, please check it out at the link below!

The Art of Wildlife Photography eBook

PS - more eBooks to come over the following months!

PPS - we also have an affiliate program if you'd like to promote and sell the book (and future books) on yuor own site. See Cameralabs Affiliate Program for details.

Hi Gordon,

Congratulations to both yourself and Mike. I thought we hadn't seen quite so much of you on the forum over the last days and it turns out that you've been squirrelled away e-writing. Talking of which, is there a section on squirrels? :lol:

Bob.

Is there any form of DRM on it?

Thanks Stephen.

Citruspers, no, but each copy has a unique identifier, so if one does get out to the wild, I'll know who did it. Why do you ask?

Thanks Stephen, hope you like it!

PS - I've not looked into the Android market for selling it yet, but I should. I know iTunes doesn't let you sell PDFs, only ePUBs or the new iBooks format at the moment.

Because I think if I buy something, I should be the one to decide on which devices I want to use it, and not the content publisher. As such, I don't support DRM.

So, good to hear you don't use that. I'll consider :)

I have just finished reading the e-book, its taken a while to work my way through each chapter.
Its a good read and one gives me plenty to think about about when going out on my next bushwalking, camping or photographic trip. I could relate with many things and experiences in there, even though there is differences in the wildlife in Australia and Canada. The same approach about understanding your environment applies and planning for your trip, keeping your safety in mind. Keep your eyes open, look and think.

I guess you call some of these things common sense, we all know about common sense in hindsight with experience, but in reality its usually build on experiences and a few hopefully not to harsh lessons. I have made plenty of mistakes I just try and not to repeat them too often :P :lol:

What exactly is an "Outfitter"?

I can guess at what it is, but its not something we specifically have here.

My experience of 'outfitters' has been with canoeing in Canada. They provide equipment and logistics. This may be hire of canoes and transport to and from the water.

Think of it as someone who will fit you out with what you need. This may be boat hire to go and see whales for instance
