"For things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them"-Aristotle
Philosophy is the love of wisdom. "Phos" is the Greek word for light, which is where the modern word "photo" comes from. So, one could say: The Photo Philosophy Book is for the lover of the wisdom of light; The Photographer.The Artist. And for those who love wisdom.
Freelance photographer, student of philosophy, sacred geometry and the Trivium method. D. Austin is a lover of the wisdom of light.

Austin; the book explores the factors affecting creative free will and discusses ways creative free will may be obtained. Simply put, the book is a photography guide for creating great images.

Risks and challenges
The best way to display the information, ideas, and images; is with a large format hardcover artbook and the printing of 100 is fairly expensive.
1. The main challenge will be getting the printed books back from from printers in a reasonable time frame. Once the project is funded we will take 3 days to finalize the editing of the book.
After funding, we estimate 4-5 weeks for the printed hard cover books to get back from the printers and to our studio. And 3- 5 days to package all 100 books and begin shipping them out to our backers.
The matting and framing of the 8"x10" prints will be completed once the files of the books are sent to the printer. The matted and framed prints may arrive 7-10 days earlier than the finished book.
The printer is aware of the importance of this Kickstarter project and has taken steps to assure prompt and quality service.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
