The Essential Guide to Lighting Interiors

It’s official – you can buy my book HERE.

I average about an email a day asking me for advice, coaching, or inquiring about a book, DVD, pamphlet, or other resource on lighting interiors. This book is the answer to all that. I didn’t hold back – this is the technique I employ every day on shoots. I tried to lay out as clearly as possible the theory and practical solutions that go into my photos. We’ll go into big, spacious living rooms, small bathrooms, and even into a pitch-dark, cramped little attic together, figuring out how to light them all from start to finish.

If you shoot real estate — this is your book. It’s written with small flash (and the need to move quickly) in mind. Photographers who shoot interiors for other types of clients will find that the techniques described “scale up” perfectly well – I spent today shooting with a combination of speedlights and a more powerful pack-and-head system for a kitchen remodeling company, and the fundamentals I was relying on are the ones I put in the book.

Let me know what you think! Since it’s an “eBook”, there will be updates periodically, and you’ll get every one of them for free, automatically. Hit THIS LINK to get to the ‘order page’ — you’ll be able to download the PDF immediately.

Many thanks to the list of people who supported this project. I’ve listed many of them in the introduction, but I have to mention Larry Lohrman and Malia Campbell here. Larry for publishing, editing, and being incredibly patient with me as I tried to write while juggling a crazy travel and shoot schedule (and never complaining even when I made nit-pick after nit-pick over the many drafts we went through). And Mia for being endlessly forgiving while I slowly went crazy on this project. It kind of took over my life during the past two months especially.
