This book has been nearly four years in the making. It all started when Marcus and I traveled to Iceland in the summer of 2016.
From beautiful waterfalls around every corner, to soaring puffins flying with beaks full of fish, to majestic Icelandic ponies grazing in vast green fields, to icy glaciers and black sand beaches, Iceland made an indelible mark on us. When Marcus decided to write a book on travel photography, he had so many great, diverse photos from Iceland that it just made sense to center his first book on that.
But while the photos are from Iceland, the tips in the book are culled from Marcus’s 30 years as a professional photographer and photojournalist.
“I wanted to reveal the secrets of taking a great photo–techniques I’ve been using for years–but show how to do it in a way so that people at all skills levels could understand and do it,” said Marcus.
When I asked Marcus how it felt to finally have his book out in the world, he said, “It just feels great to share my love of photography with everyone.”
This book is the fourth book/zine published by our indie publishing company, Plaid Frog Press, and we couldn’t be happier to share it with you.
“As CFO and head of employee retention,” said Froggy. “I’m going to make sure that Marcus celebrates all weekend–maybe even for the rest of the month! I’m incredibly proud of him and his book.”
