It all sounds kind of ominous, doesn’t it? Hardly has a jingly ring to it, the way one might expect for the titular opening of the holiday shopping season. I vastly prefer the day in between these two, which is now referred to as “Small Business Saturday.” Sounds like a kinder, gentler day, and here at the studio, we definitely qualify. Hard to get smaller than us.
Big, we ain’t. So it’s a welcome thing, this Small Business Saturday initiative. We have a pretty short list of things to offer – some things are on sale and a couple of brand new things to share in case you’re interested. Check out options below, and if you do venture into the stores on Black Friday, be careful. I have worked on several aircraft carriers, where they flat out tell you that the flight deck is the “most dangerous four and a half acres on earth.” I think that title transfers temporarily to the parking lots outside the big box stores on these holiday shopping spree days.
The download version of the Language of Light video, a well reviewed instructional in small flash, will be on sale from Friday November 28 thru Tuesday at midnight on December 2, 2014.

In the LOL 2 version, we go forward with more advanced concepts, and a bit less piece by piece explanation. There’s a lot of discussion and explanation, but as we’ve said, this one is more of a backstage tour of shots that are happening, some of which are a tad complex, like tap dancer Baakari Wilder, seen below.
Since we are talking about gift options:), happy to announce that I put together my first eBook. I’ve been asked a lot over the years if I’d make a book, a compilation, of the best, most popular, most informative, most off the wall posts to my blog as a keepsake for people. We gathered a group of technically informative entries, and paired them with a roughly equivalent number of posts that are just about the humorous, vexing, frustrating, and ultimately wonderful life of a traveling photog. And we put them together in this roughly 200 page version called The Light and the Life. It’s in both English & Spanish. I travel a lot, and over the last few years I’ve visited and taught in numerous Spanish speaking countries, particularly Mexico. The photo community there is vast, passionate and skilled, so, we translated the book into Spanish. Big thanks to Eduardo Angel for his keen eye, expert attention to detail, and dedication for making the Spanish version happen. And of course thanks to my wonderful editor Ted Waitt at Peachpit.
Here are the links:
(Note, the Peachpit site allows you to download three formats, including PDF and EPUB.)
Have great holidays, everybody! More tk…
Went to iBooks for Light and Life and it’s a bit wonky. The one with the English title has the Spanish cover in the thumbnail and a Spanish description. The sample download was Spanish, but with English on the page header. The one with the Spanish title has the English thumbnail & description and sample download, but Spanish in the page header. The “continue reading” page is in Spanish, but shows the English thumbnail.
Thought you’d want to know.

Since you mentioned Small Business Saturday, if I use my AMEX card do I get a $10 credit with them by ordering tomorrow (Small Business Saturday). I’m asking if you are a registered Small Business with AMEX?
Joe McNally says
Sorry Bob….don’t believe we are registered as you suggest. Will look into it though….best, Joe
Nice! Something to read during Christmas vacation 🙂 Thanks for all the inspiration Joe!
Barry McCann says
Though I’m not American, the Black Friday fever has reached our shores and I’m delighted to have been able to purchase the language of light at such a great price. Your work and willingness to share is so inspiring. Happy thanksgiving from a cold and frosty Scotland.
