Ever since I began my journey as a landscape photographer, I had a dream that one day I would publish my very own book. I wanted to create a book that would inspire other people to see the beauty in our natural world and perhaps to also chase that same sense of awe that so intoxicates me.

Pre-Orders Are Signed

You’ll be happy to know that I will be personally signing your limited edition of ‘Chasing Awe‘. Only pre-orders will be signed, but if you flag me down in the street like a full blown stalker and present me with your copy of the book I’ll be more than happy to sign it for you. I will then run away in terror.

Early Bird Pricing

Pre-ordering also gives you ‘Early Bird’ pricing as a thank-you for being a visionary. When the book starts the ship I’ll be removing early bird pricing and no more books will be signed during shipping.

About The Book 

When I was a beginner, I read a lot of photography books. While many of them had beautiful images, I did feel somewhat disconnected to the authors because many of the accompanying stories lacked both a personal touch and offered no technical insights. With ‘Chasing Awe‘, I wanted to break that format and offer you a front row seat to the experience of being a professional landscape photographer – warts and all.

With ‘Chasing Awe‘, I felt it was important to include some technical insights in to how some of the images were created. With images that involved some level of technical mastery, I included a short explanation as to how I achieved the final result because I know that people find these insights helpful and educational. You’ll also find the anecdotes inspiring and appalling in equal measure.

Shipping Rates

There are very few downsides to living in Canada. One of those however, is Canadapost. Shipping rates from Canada are notoriously appalling and so I have adjusted the price of the book to absorb some of this. The shipping prices shown during checkout reflect the best possible shipping rates available at this time. Your limited edition of ‘Chasing Awe‘ will be shipped from Canada in early 2021.

Why USD and not CAD?

Historically, most of my clients are in the US and around the world. Very few come from Canada, so I’ve set USD as the web sites base currency to accommodate the majority. In my 20+ years of doing e-commerce, USD seems to be the more globally ‘recognized’ currency for e-commerce. People from different countries are more used to seeing prices in USD than CAD so that’s what I went with. One day I’ll figure out how to add multi-currency to the site.
That being said, you can still choose the ‘Paypal’ payment option and Paypal should convert the total into your local currency.
