Hi Gang: On Wednesday I’ll be heading up to New York City for something I really look forward to each year — Photo Plus Expo. It’s a huge photography expo and conference, and I love seeing all the new stuff from vendors, and seeing all my industry friends, and heck, I just love New York, so it’s all good.

Here’s my teaching schedule for the week:

If you’ve followed me here or on social, you know I’m kind of an evangelist for making photo books. In fact, today at my sold-out seminar in Washington DC, it’s one of the topics I discuss during the day — why making photo books are important, and the effect they can have on you and your career as a photographer. So, when I got the chance to try out the latest Photo Books from MPIX, I jumped at it.

Our friend and KelbyOne instructor Moose Peterson has released the latest issue of his BT Journal, and it’s huge! This issue is packed with more images, more video and more text then ever before so you feel like you’re right next to them in that Landie! This issue is 80 pages (it’s normally 24 pages) this time. It centers around Moose’s July Africa Adventure. Before you think further, the issue is the length it is because so much of what it is to be a wildlife photographer, going to Africa and much more has been clouded with time. The romance, the technical, the good for your soul and so much more are what bulks up this issue and it is inspiration I think you need and will enjoy reading! Those of you wanting to improve your wildlife and landscape photography, what are you waiting for? Go get it now!

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you probably saw a post or two of mine looking for a cool car to shoot after my seminar in Phoenix. Well I found one. Actually, two.

Last year, I got to shoot a classic Cobra and a brand new Corvette at photographer Paul Markow’s studio in Phoenix (a super-nice guy with a killer studio — big enough to shoot a car no problem, and a cove roof to bounce the lights off). This year I wound up shooting a Maserati GranTurismo — seen above (believe it or not, I rented it from Enterprise rent-a-car in Phoenix for a song), and then Adam Thaler, a photographer who follows me on Facebook, saw my search for an exotic car and brought over a red Ferrari California — so the shoot was on!

I am so excited to tell you about my brand-new book — it’s kind of my ‘greatest hits” book, because I took just the very best tips and most useful techniques from ALL FIVE parts of my “Digital Photography Book Series” (all five books are different), and put them into this one single new book called “The Best of the Digital Photography Book Series.”

It’s due to ship around October 2nd (13 days from now), but you can pre-order it right now (Amazon has it for only $16.73 and Barnes & Noble for $16.49) and be the first to get it. If you’re a KelbyOne member, you can order it direct from us at a full 40% off!

[IMPORTANT: the cover at Amazon isn’t the same as the one you see above – they’re showing the first mock-up cover, not the actual final cover above, but you’ll get the right book with the right cover now matter where you order it).

Check out my video below – it’s short, but really explains how we put all this together.

Thanks to every one who has supported this book series, which started back in 2006, and to all those folks who made Part 1 of this series the #1 topselling book on digital photography ever. I’m thrilled to see this series live on in this “Best of” volume, and I hope you’ll give it try.

Have a great Monday everybody – I’m off to Phoenix today for my all new “Shoot Like a Pro: Reloaded” seminar tomorrow (my next stop is Washington DC, on October 16th).

Best,

-Scott
