I do books!

Keywords: 

Publishing books has never been easier, and I thought I'd have some fun putting my own pictures in books.

The cover of my fishing image book: "Seatrout! Pictures of a passion"

Seatrout! Pictures of a passion.

My second take on a self-published book. The first one was private, but this one is for the whole world to see.

This book was made to capitalize a bit on the huge archive of sea trout fishing pictures that I have shot over the years.

I have been fishing and taking pictures longer than I care to admit.

I do sell pictures to magazines and use a lot of the images on the web site The Global FlyFisher, which I created and maintain together with fly fishing friends and with the aide and material from a lot of contributors.

The site has been soooo much fun to run during the last 15 years, but has also cost us a lot of money. Web traffic and server space is not free.
So this book is supposed to make a little money and maybe cover just a bit of these past and future expenses.

Misses

I never delete a picture, which I shot with any of my cameras.

Really... never!

Opposite most photographers I save every missed shot, every test, every blurred smudge and every completely psychedelic exposure. And honestly, quite a few good shots come from that!

So I have decided to collect a bunch of these misses from my photo archive and make them into this odd little book.

Blurb

I have used the online service Blurb, where you can download the program Booksmart--an application that runs on your own computer--and produce books locally.

The software is easy to use, albeit not as powerful as the stand alone Desktop Publishing systems such as Indesign, which I have used quite a bit during my career. But it works, and sets only a few limits on your creativity.

You can produce PDF's and use them in stead. I am currently looking into the open source program Scribus to see whether it will work for doing books on Blurb. But for now Booksmart will make do.
