Firstly please check out my website to see the high quality of my work!
New Ultimate Pledge! To try to help this failing project still reach it's goal I am making one of my pictures a limited edition of 1. This will only ever be printed once for you and even better you get to choose the image, if you know someone rich who wants something that no one else in the world has please tell them about this.
New Prize! I am adding a new prize for one lucky backer if I meet my £30,000 goal, a 48x16 inch Plexiglass mounted print worth £850, so tell everybody about this and help me make my goal and you can have a great picture for your wall. This can be delivered anywhere in the world.
Hello and thank you for looking at my project. Firstly please can you email, tweet or link this page on your facebook and tell all your friends, the more people that know about my project the more chances of my first book getting made. I am also on Twitter @jfvdenning so let's connect.
I'm a landscape photographer from England and I shoot on a unique 617 panoramic camera using film and I recently won Bronze in the International Pano Awards. Last year I quit my day job and took a 30,000 mile road trip across North America photographing the amazing landscapes Canada and the USA have to offer and now I hope with your help to make that adventure into a great book.
At 300 pages and 12x12 inches, it will be a huge hard cover coffee table book full of the wonderful pictures and stories from my adventure which you can lose yourself in for days. The design is almost complete, so now I just need your help to to get it printed. Any help you can give, be it money or just telling your friends and family about this would be amazing and help to achieve the first goal in my photography career. I promise you will not be disappointed by this book.
I know £30,000/$48,000 is a large proposition, but designing and printing a book of this size at 300 pages at the quality required to do my work justice is expensive. Plus the book will weigh in at 3kg/5lb so delivery is not cheap either. Once I factor in all this and the cost of prints, other pledges and Kickstarters cut the money quickly disappears. And I'm not including the £18,000/$28,000 cost to do the road trip and take all the pictures included in the book.
The list of places I visit in the book is long; New York, Chicago, Toronto, Vancouver, San Francisco, Los Angeles, The Canadian Rockies, Lake Tahoe, Death Valley, The Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Whistler, Olympic National Park, Washington DC, Arches National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park and many more. Here are some maps of the journey I took.
We are supporters of Kicking it Forward, which means 5% of our successfully funded campaign will go towards helping other entrepreneurs on Kickstarter make their dreams a reality. When you pledge to us, you're also helping the greater Kickstarter community.
Please visit my website www.jasondenning.co.uk where you can see the high standard of pictures that you will get to see beautifully printed in this book.
The retail price will be £65.00 so don't miss out on getting the book at a discount before anyone else.
Risks and challenges
The great thing about this project is that there is no risk, other than your post man delivering it to your door.
The journey and book design has been completed and I have selected a great printer with all the costs worked out. Once I am fully funded, I can pay the printers and get the ball rolling. It takes 10-12 weeks to print, so please be patient as you will get the book.
You will receive a personalised signed copy of the book with your name printed in the thanks section at the back, and a limited edition 48x16 inch panoramic perspex mounted print of your choice.This will look spectacular in your home or office. This is not available outside of Kickstarter.
You will receive a personalised signed copy of the book with your name printed in the thanks section at the back, and a limited edition 48x16 inch Panoramic Kodak Duratrans print of the photograph featured on the book cover mounted on a state of the art LED Lightbox.
This can also be substituted for another photo from my collection.
This will look spectacular in your home or office.
Only 10 of this image in this format will ever be printed.
The ultimate Pledge, this actually is for £25,000 but Kickstarter limits what I can ask for to £5,000, so to get this you have to give £25,000.
You get to choose an image from my collection at jasondenning.co.uk for a limited edition of only 1 to be printed as big as you like. That's right only 1 of whichever you choose will ever be printed so could be quite valuable one day.
