About this project
I have a lot of interesting FRIENDS in the Film, Television, Music and Fashion Industries. Between Directing TV episodes I found myself taking their photos for magazine & CD covers and editorials... it was all cool, but one day I was struck with an idea... Why not use this down time to Shoot something far cooler?
For the past two years I have been asking my Actor, Musician, Model and Artist Friends to strip down and jump "IN THE TUB" to take their pictures and in turn many told their FRIENDS to strip jump in. Over 150 people have taken the plunge in all.
So far my wife and I have financed the entire project out of our own pockets. Every participant has posed for their photo shoot for free. I now have a great publishing partner for the project 'Design Studio Press' and through them the book will be printed at a high quality have worldwIde distribution.
This Kickstarter Project will help me finance all of the production costs... so you can have the book on your Coffee Table later this Spring.
I was behind the camera so believe me I know - there are lot of intriguing images to look at... everyone threw their caution to the wind 'A-games only' for this project...
Now, It's time for you to jump "IN THE TUB"...

Risks and challenges
The Biggest Challenge to finishing the Project and featuring the photos in a beautiful coffee table book that will be sold around the world is finding help with the publishing. I am Directing TV series in Canada and South Africa in the next few months and partnering with Design Studio Press to do the publishing insures the production success of this project. I have put thousands of hours into this Project, so I will get it done.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
A number of people have asked to late to buy the Book because I have hit my funding target - and others have asked what happens to the funds beyond the initial goal.
The $30,000 mark was the minimum amount I required to do a First Printing of the two Editions of the IN THE TUB Book. My Publisher feels that if we could hit the $70,000. range we could do a far larger First Printing - and that will translate into substantial reductions in the Printing Costs. I would also have a bit of a PR and Advertising budget for the Worldwide launch of the book - which would in turn create a real snowball effect on sales and profits. So 'Yes' you can still buy a copy - and I know you will love this book. Thanks All.
