It’s said that the sequel must be better than the original, so for my second hardback book ‘Stories Within Stories By Gavin Hardcastle‘, I went to extreme lengths to bring you a landscape photography book that’s even better than my first.

I lovingly crafted a collection of awe-inspiring images from my extensive career and wrote fascinating true stories to accompany each image. Some of them you might even believe.

About The Book 

After receiving lots of great feedback for my first book, ‘Chasing Awe with Gavin Hardcastle,’ I knew I wanted to write another. Since then, I’ve travelled far and wide to bring you even more spectacular images and those all-important stories of what goes on behind the scenes.

Whether it’s a hilarious caper, a disastrous misadventure or an inspiring moment of insight, ‘Stories Within Stories By Gavin Hardcastle‘ gives you an unrestrained and brutally honest glimpse into the life of a professional landscape photographer.

There are days when I have the best job on earth and there are days when I seriously question my life choices. With this book, you’ll join me on my journey through the agony and the ecstasy as we hike through frozen granite mountains, paddle over searing swamps, quest through haunted forests, wildlife encounters and, of course, all of my favourite beaches, waterfalls and lakes.

More Than Just Stories and Photographs

With ‘Stories Within Stories By Gavin Hardcastle‘, I felt it was important to include some technical insights into how 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 so that you can learn while being entertained.

The Best Way to Support Fototripper

Purchasing one of my photography books is the best way to support the Fototripper Youtube channel so that I can continue to provide you with inspiring free content.

Shipping Included In The Price

I figured that the best way to make people feel good about the outrageous cost of shipping from Canada was to simply absorb the cost of postage and packaging in the price of the book. The price you see includes worldwide shipping to anywhere regardless of where you live. If you live outside of Canada, your country may impose duties when purchasing products from other countries. This is the responsibility of the buyer, not the exporter. Luckily these duties (if any) should be negligible.

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.

Why Does This Book Cost Less Than Your First Book?

Chasing Awe With Gavin Hardcastle‘ was a limited edition print run and there are only 20 copies left. It will never be reprinted. Get it while you can.
