My new eBook "The Moment of Emotional Impact in Photography"

Aarhus, Denmark, March 25, 2015

Thorsten von Overgaard eBook "The Moment of Emotional Impact in Photography"

The year 1965 was the year that Doris Day and Jane Fonda were the hottest fashion icons and the year Sound of Music won the Oscar for best movie.

As little as I want to admit it, it was also the year I was born. I turn 50 this month. My birthday wish is to be of help and inspiration to people. In some parts of the world you don’t get Birthday gifts, but you give gifts to friends and family.

Inspired by this I usde this month to offer as many gifts as I can. One of them was my new book, "The Moment of Emotional Impact in Photography" that I offered people on my mailing list to download for free, as well as anyone signing up to the mailing list. In the first two days more than 1,100 took me up on the offer and downloaded books worth more than $40,000.

That was fun!

 

     
 

"Your writing, articles and photographs has learned and inspired me a lot.
