Free Gift Giveaway!

23 Mar

A few months ago, I released a photo guide to Connecticut and got a great response (THANK YOU!). Now, if you follow my Instagram, you saw that my buddy David Pasillas Photography is doing the same! If you have ever been interested in checking out California, you NEED this e-book.

 

David has spent a lot of time in one of the most beautiful sections of coastline that Cali has to offer -Big Sur – and put together a great guide for those of you looking to take some photos there. Maps, lesser known beaches and trails…all in all, a nifty must-read and for a limited time, its FREE! Check out his post about it here. 🙂

Free Gift! Limited Time Offer!

New "PHOTOGRAPHY + CONNECTICUT" e-book!

New “PHOTOGRAPHY + CONNECTICUT” e-book!

I am so excited to finally announce the release of my first e-book!  Surprise!

This year has been a busy one so far, with so many exciting changes and plans in the works.  The time is not yet right to announce all of them…and believe me, David and I have some really awesome things coming up for 2015…but it is the right time to talk about my newest venture!  An e-book mini guide to some of the hot spots for landscape and nature photography in Connecticut!

I know, I know…Connecticut??!!??  Yes!  Connecticut.  It may be a small state, but it has so much to offer photographers, and it (unfortunately) often gets overlooked in favor of other New England heavy hitters like Acadia or Boston.  Now, don’t get me wrong…those places are great!  But Connecticut?  If you’re looking for variety, charm and history then CT is the cat’s pajamas.

“Photography + Connecticut; The Nature and Landscape Mini Guide” is a casual, conversational e-book indexing some of my favorite places to shoot in the state.  It’s meant to highlight the reasons that YOU…yes, YOU…should come visit…with a camera in hand.

So, how do you get your hands on a copy??

Simple!  For a limited time only, all you have to do is sign up for the newsletter here….you’ll get a confirmation email and once you’re signed up….boom!  Magic!  The link to the PDF will appear in your inbox as part of our welcome email, ready to be…er…read. 🙂

This offer expires March 1. After that, the guide will be for sale here.

I hope you enjoy the pretty pictures, I hope you come visit….and while you’re here, I hope you look me up!  Bring cookies.  I like cookies.

 

This book offer is only for a limited time, until the end of February.  Don’t wait!

 

Thanks so much for all your support.  Please, spread the word. 🙂

Inspirational Quotes Photo Giveaway!

CONTEST

CONTEST

Ok, I’ll admit it.  I’m an inspirational quotes junkie.  Or maybe just a quotes junkie.  I refer to notable quotes in real life situations.  I look to them when I’m having a down day.  I have an entire Pinterest board devoted to them.  No shoes and fashion board, but 104 quotes and pictures (so far) pinned to a board to remind me of the awesome things in life.

quotes

It may be silly, but those quotes connected with me. They picked me up on a down day, motivated me on days when I felt un-focused or unsure of my art and made me smile, reminding of the best parts of the life and people all around me.

What may be even sillier…besides the way the word “sillier” looks spelled out…is that I want to make one of those quotes/photo/pins so that my art can bring a smile to someone else’s face. 🙂  This isn’t a new thing for me.  I’ve done other posts involving quotography (example here, or here)….  But this time, I’m asking for your help!

So, I’d like to use this photo and your quote suggestion.  You can just put your comment in the comment section, and at the end of this, whoever’s quote I choose will get a free 8×10 photo print (see the poster at the top of the post for your print options)

Quotes must be submitted by next Wednesday, August 6th.

My Gift To You!

Shamrock Banner

Shamrock Banner

Every now and again, I like to give a little something back to you guys, my online-friends.  Those of you on Facebook who follow my page…well…you already know about my occassional give aways.  The rest of you though…well…what the heck?  You don’t like free stuff???!!??

 

If you’re on the FB, please stop by my photo page and click the like button.  I promise not to hit you with a million quadrillion bazillion annoying updates.  Just purty pictures, the occasional interesting or inspiring something-or-other and…oh yeah…did I mention free stuff??

 

One of the things I like to do is put out timeline banners for y’all to use if you so choose.  Maybe you really love seals and sea lions, but…hey…you weren’t with me on this last trip I made to California.  That means you couldn’t take a photo of the awesomeness that was baby sea lions.  But maybe…just maybe…I took a photo or two with you in mind.  And maaayyybbbee I’ll be posting it on my page in the next few days for anyone (you, sea lion enthusiast extraordinaire) to use as their banner. Only way to know for sure is to follow my FB page, right?

 

Do it. 🙂
