Contest: Win The NITTY GRITTY Photography E-Book

Are you looking for advice on launching your photography business? Pascale Wowak, professional photographer and author of Getting Started in the Photography Business, has a new e-book available to photographers – The Nitty Gritty.  Two lucky photographers have a chance to win this new photographer’s guide. Also get $24 off if you use the code MCP at checkout by the end of August. If you win and already bought it, you will be refunded your purchase price.

Pascale guest wrote an article on the MCP Blog called “How to Photograph Pregnant Women.” Check this out for a sampling of her writing style.

Pascale describes her new work: This e-book covers everything you need to know in order to successfully launch and sustain your own photography business.  I delve into logo, branding, pricing, technical expertise, marketing, white balance, metering, histograms, finding the light, using reflectors and other tools of the trade, off camera flash, post processing, RAW editing, proper calibration of your monitor, using actions correctly, business forms, various FAQ’s, composition, preventing burn out, charity work, finding your style, copyright considerations, plenty of links to great articles and other useful websites and, basically, just a whole lot of SOUND advice.   I spent hours upon hours putting this all together and included actual step by step screen shot captures of my editing process with sample images to help illustrate the process for those of you who are very visual (like me).  It’s 50 pages chock-full of valuable advice, expertise, images and information.”

If you feel you could benefit from her electronic photography book, The Nitty Gritty, all you need to do is tell us why. Add your comment to the blog post, not on Facebook, and say why you want to win this book/what you would hope to learn from it.

For extra entries:

  • As always, if you “Like” me on Facebook, new “fans” only or “Follow” me on Twitter for the 1st time, you get an extra entry for each.
  • And if you spread the word on this contest, on your blog, Facebook, or Twitter, get extra comment entries for those as well. Just add a comment for each of the extra things you did. Good luck everyone!

Find out if you won:

The two winners will be picked by random drawing on Sunday the 22nd. Since I will be on vacation, I will not be blogging the winners.  Yep – I prep all my posts ahead when I am on vacation. Instead I will announce the winners on my Facebook Page wall.  So make sure you are a “liker” of it – check back then to see if you are one of two lucky winners. If you are, just email me to redeem your prize!

    I would love this ebook because I am just starting out. I’m currently working on my website and I am just stuck on how I want it to look. I don’t really have a set brand. I think this book would really, really help me out. I love all the advice I can get, and this would be perfect. (If I don’t win, how much does this book cost?) 🙂

    I’m still relatively new to this and have so much to learn, specifically about finding the light as well as marketing… this looks great! Thanks for the giveaway.

    I would LOVE to win this e-book because I am just starting out in the portrait photography side of things. Been doing weddings for a little while now, and need some extra direction…especially in gaining clients in a certain niche. Thanks for the chance!
