Announcement - Join me LIVE on This Week in Photography!

There is a video live broadcast on http://live.twit.tv on Monday at 11 AM PST (1 PM CST), November 9. That's really soon! Tune in and find out about the techniques behind those Stuck In Motion videos. Here is a recent post I made about it where you can check the status of the show, in case of problems or last-minute link changes. I received a number of requests for exclusives on the "reveal", which is one of those weird words I thought was reserved for makeover shows. Oh yes, I also got a makeover. (no I didn't).

If you miss the live show, the TWIP Podcast will be downloadable on Wednesday, Nov 11. That one will be audio-only, with no view of the Stuck Compound.

Book Launch Parties - New York City, Chicago, and Austin!

Hey wow! Let's meet! I'd really enjoy the opportunity to shake your hand and say hello!

The book "A World in HDR" launches in December. The whole press release with all the details is coming soon, but, in the meantime, we are planning three launch parties... so get ready!

The Austin Launch Party will be December 9th at 6 PM. Mark it down! It will be part of the 12 Days of Driskill annual celebration. We'll be meeting there at the Driskill and there will be many great things going on. Besides signing books (you may be able to buy one too if you did not get a guaranteed one with a pre-order), I will give a short (20 min) talk about some of the new photos in the book. Also, you are free to come even if you are not getting a book! I don't care about that... just come join us and have fun!

The New York City and Chicago launch parties will be right around that time too. Stay tuned to the blog for the latest announcements there. Also, if you join the Facebook Fan Club, we can use "Events" to make sure everyone is properly invited!

Also, and this is very cool, we will also have a photowalk INSIDE the Driskill, which will be richly decorated for the holidays, as usual. The person that takes the BEST photograph will have it grace the cover of the famous annual Driskill Christmas Card. Cool!

Workshop Registration, be there at 12 midnight CST sharp!

Registration for the HDR Workshop will open just after midnight CST on Friday, Nov 13th (the midnight between Thurs and Fri, if you get midnight-confused!). From the responses at the HDR Workshop announcement, I think we could have over 100 people there, but there will only be slots for 12 or so.

Hurry and Follow and Get on our Twitter Lists!

Be sure to Follow and get on these amazing Twitter Lists! I think there is a limit to how many people I can put on the Stuck In Customs Community List, so please get on there ASAP and recommend people. Recommend yourself too - so I can easily find and add you. There is a link there to make recommendations!

The Moments Between, Episode 2: The Kids

The new video is up at this post on the blog. I hope it gives you some ideas on how to add a new and fun element to your family videos!

Kiva Announcement

Very soon, I'll be releasing a new video on our Kiva page all about how and why you can join Team Stuck In Customs!

International pre-orders now available!

As promised, now we have a lot more options for International Orders! Just check the page for "A World in HDR" for more details. Why not Australia yet? I don't know. Unacceptable I say, especially because I am soon headed to that part of the world (well, New Zealand, at least).

Some of my recent Tweets that maybe you missed and would enjoy...

    Thanks for sending this to your friends & family

    This community is strong because people like you take the time to forward this to your friends and family. The newsletter is totally free, and one of the few things I ask is that you share the art freely and widely. If you like it, chances are that people around you will like it too.

    If you have any suggestions or feedback on how we can improve the newsletter or the site, please leave them at the Newsletter page. I do read ALL comments, but I do not have time to respond. My apologies... but at least everything makes it into my head-region!
