Canary Islands

Join me on creating a Fine Art Photography Book of the Canary Islands.

The project is currently on Kickstarter, below are an excerpt of the information.

About this project

There’s something special about the landscapes of the Grand Canary Islands. Join me on this project and explore the landscapes in the book The Great Canaries!

The Great Canaries is a project that has been in the making for a while  and most of the material is done and I plan on finishing the last shots within a short time frame. After this, the design of the book will be finalized.

The initial, first, edition of the book will be created in a small batch, that’s where the most of the funds raised will go. The book will be sold online (Amazon, my web site, etc) and to local gift shops at locations I’ve stayed during the numerous visits.

The funding will be used to cover¬†print costs for the first edition of the book. Hundreds (probably even thousands) of hours has already been put in to this project by me, behind the camera, behind the wheel chasing the light, in the pitch dark wee hours waiting for the sun to rise and even more waiting for it set again. But then again that’s my passion and I love it!

The Book

The book will be a Fine Art Photography book. And as such the main content will be photographs of the breathtaking landscapes of the Canary Islands. However there will be (brief) descriptions of the locations.

For the aspiring Landscape Photographer

I will add coordinates (discreet scannable QR-codes) to all locations, should you wish to visit them yourself. (If you do snap a photo at the exact same location, just promise me that you’ll send me a copy). Also I will explain what camera exposure settings have been used. Shutter speed, focal length etc.

Below are some layouts from the work in progress. I’ve evaluated different book suppliers and different printing method for this project.

As the work is proceeding, the final result will differ of course.
