About this project

The Cam Tourist - CUBA simply gives you the information you need for a successful photo journey. Dive into 80 beautiful pictures with this interactive photo ebook and use the valuable information for your own style.

See our PROTOTYPE.

 

"The Cam Tourist" is designed to be a series of books, featuring different countries around the world. We start with Cuba, because it's one of the top travel locations for this year. 

The Cam Tourist - Cuba will give you insights and impressions of Cuba and will inspire your photography, when you are traveling through this incredible country. Therefore I will give you the information often missing - detailed EXIF data, GPS coordinates and also helpful notes and information for each and every picture. So this is not only a neat coffe-table book, but also an insightful guide, which gives you all the information you need to create stunning photos by yourself.

 

My colleague and I came up with the idea of a photo book which not only holds the essence of an incredible trip in pictures, but a lot of valuable information about these photos as well. We finally decided, that the most practical format for readers would be an interactive ibook, for macOS and iOS, in which you can watch every photo in full view and zoom in as you like. And details, like notes from Henry or the GPS data, are just one fingertip away.

iBooks is running on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac. You can easily browse through the pictures, search the book for keywords and add your own notes and ideas. And as a matter of course it works offline.

See how it works

iBooks is designed to give you a great experience, while reading in an interactive, beautiful book. It's super easy to use and has an intuitive user interface.

Get connected with your maps app

We thought some of the most important information should be easily accessible. That's why we linked the GPS information directly with a maps app. You can choose between apple maps and google maps, whatever serves you better. 

But we also know about the often missing internet connection while traveling. So simply copy the GPS data and paste it into your offline navigation app of choice, like Scout®, here® or TomTom®.

Risks and challenges

We've worked on this book for quite a while and figured out how to achieve the things we expect from this book. Once the project gets funded successfully it's mostly the time table thats going to be chasing us. Because we want to deliver within the shortest time possible without compromising on quality.

Our partner for printing is close by and informed about the process. We have checked on print dates and quality, so that your postcards and books will keep up to the promise: Made in Germany!

So basically we don't face many risks. As long as our homes don't burn down to the ground or we die, we will be able to finish this project.

But let's talk about YOUR RISKS! We want to deliver more books like this. We have ideas for at least 3 books to come, if this one get's funded. We are talking about Iceland, Patagonia and New Zealand. So inform your friends and pledge the hell out of it, because otherwise we probably can't realize these other projects as well.

Thank you for supporting.
