ShootTokyo: The Book

Project Ended: Where can I get the book?

Thank You all for the support on my Kickstarter Project! My project has ended and been successfully funded. If you didn't get a book or want another copy of the book they are now for sale in the ShootTokyo's Shop.

The Project:

ShootTokyo initially started as a way for me to improve my photography and has turned into a daily obsession for me.    The site has achieved more success than I ever could have imagined with 1,000s of daily visitors.  I love getting to share my passion with you and hopefully helping to inspire you along the way.

One of my dreams has been to create a book for people to keep in their home, office or on their coffee table to enjoy my photographs.   There is an incredible amount of preparation and planning required to create a high quality photography book.

I have reached that point.  I am ready.  I in the final stages of selecting my images for the book but have a look at portfolio or have a look below to get a feel for what images will be in the book.   I am also taking suggestions if you have your favorite that you would like to have included.

I have hired a professional book designer to help me design and bring my book to you in the same professional manner I bring you ShootTokyo.  We are partnering with a printing house in Tokyo to print my book.   You can check out some of their previous work with this book

I can't wait to hold my book in my hands to feel it and see it. If you are lover of photography, a lover of Japan or a regular reader of ShootTokyo (arigato!) please consider sponsoring this project.   If you have have any question on the project please feel free to reach out to me here or on ShootTokyo.

Thanks for your consideration.  See you around ShootTokyo.

Risks and challenges

I am working with professional book designer and printing house. While this is my first book it is not theirs. I have created 10s of 1,000s of images.

I don't expect any issues with this project as it is pretty straight forward. I have images, I have a designer, I need your support and we have found the printer. The only potential issue I could foresee is a delay in shipping if the project is more popular than my projections.

I'll be providing regular updates on ShootTokyo so you won't be surprised.
