Buy our New Natural Lighting eBook and Go in the Draw to Win $1000 worth of Lenses

Two weeks back we launched a brand new dPS eBook – Natural Light: Mastering a Photographer’s Most Powerful Tool.

We’ve seen an amazing response to the launch with some wonderful feedback coming in and people reporting both inspiration to shoot more natural light shots but also feeling that they now are equipped with the knowledge to go and do it.

Win up to $1000 USD in Lenses

We launched Natural Light with a 25% discount for early bird buyers but before we end that discount we thought we’d add one more sweetener for those who pick up the eBook in the coming 2 weeks.

Everyone who buys a copy of Natural Light before Tuesday 22nd May (including those who already have bought one) will go into the draw to win a lens prize pack with your choice of lenses to the value of $1000 USD from B&H Photo and Video.

The Prize

The winner can choose a combination of lenses to suit their needs. So Canon owners can choose Canon mount lenses. Nikon owners can choose Nikon mount lenses. Micro 4/3 camera owners can choose lenses to suit their cameras.

The winner can choose to spend their $1000 USD on one single lens or might choose to buy 2-3 lenses (as long as they total up to $1000).

For example: Canon owner might choose a 50mm f1.8 ($119), a 17-40mm f/4L ($779) and a couple of filters to bring it up to $1000 OR they might simply get a 24-105mm f/4 which is worth almost the full $1000.

FAQ

Based upon previous competitions I know we’ll get a number of questions on this so here’s some FAQs:

  • what if I already purchased Natural Light? – you’re in the draw and don’t need to do anything else
  • is this open to all international readers – yes, everyone. We’ll ship the lenses to you anywhere at our cost. Our preference is to use B&H Photo and Video but if you live outside of their delivery area we’ll work with a local supplier to you to get you your lenses.
  • can I enter more than once? – no, there is one entry per person. Multiple purchases of the eBook only get you one entry
  • are there any conditions of entry? – yes, just one. The only condition of entry is that you allow us to publish your name on the blog when you’re drawn as a winner (we’ll keep any other details private). This way everyone will know who has won (we’ve previously had winners ask not to be named which has been difficult to be transparent about winner announcements).

Here’s the deal in a Nutshell

Buy Natural Light before Tuesday 22 May and you get:

  • 25% off the eBook – worth $19.99 you get it for $14.99
  • an entry into the $1000 lens giveaway
  • Plus (and most importantly) you’ll come away from reading the eBook with some inspiration and knowledge to go away and take magical Natural Light images – this eBook has the potential to transform your photography!

To enter simply buy Natural Light before midnight on Tuesday 22nd May (Eastern US time). We’ll draw the winner that evening and notify them of their win and then publish their name here on the dPS blog. If the winner doesn’t respond within 7 days we’ll draw another winner and publish their name on the blog.

As this post goes up you have 2 weeks to take advantage of this offer – so don’t hesitate and pick up your copy of Photo Nuts and POST here today!

    This looks like an illegal (in the US) lottery.

    How does one enter without purchasing the book?

  • Roflo

    No restrictions for international customers?

    If I win.. Will you ship the lenses to me outside the US?

  • Joe

    I bought your e-book Photo Nuts and post a few months back. By purchasing it you were supposed to be enter into a drawing for prizes. I look at your web site everyday and never saw any posts at all about the drawing or anyone winning. If I missed it please correct me.

  • Tom

    Can we put the prize money towards a lens that is over $1000 if we pay the difference?

  • http://www.livingdisney.com Elizabeth

    Interesting first comment about the Lottery, his link says that a lottery is a prize drawing where people have to pay money just to buy a chance to win.
    The second comment, I would like to know the answer to also. I have been looking for where they post the winners to giveaways and can’t find it. Thanks!

  • http://digital-photography-school.com/ Darren Rowse

    Bryan – dPS is based in Australia where we have a different set of laws.

    Joe – the winner was notified but unfortunately asked for her details to be kept private. All I can tell you was that she was based in the US and chose to win the computer prize that was on offer.

    This is why we’ve now added the new condition of entry above so that we can announce winners. This time we’ll do the draw and make the announcement shortly after.

  • http://digital-photography-school.com/ Darren Rowse

    Tom – we’d be open to that. If you want to add to the $1000 you can certainly do that to get a more expensive lens.

  • http://digital-photography-school.com/ Darren Rowse

    Rofio – that’s right, we’ll get the lenses to you wherever you are.

    Hey Darren, I’ve been following your helpful advice for years now and, having discovered digital-photography-school.com from a mention in one of your problogger vids about ebook campaigns, I’m excited about buying my first book from you. I picked up my first DSLR (600D) a couple of weeks ago and can’t wait to put these techniques to use here in NZ!

    Much thanks for all your hard work,
    Jackson.

    Hi,
    I have tried to download 2 times in a row now, I don’t see the PDF file. It came blank on my iPhone. Please let me know what I’m doing wrong here.

    Thanks.

  • Senthuran

    The e book download worked fine in the 3rd attempt .

    Thanks .

  • Jeff

    Hey i was just wondering if the 1000 dollars was before tax or after tax? say the price of a lens was 999.95 would we still be able to get that lens without paying the taxes?
    Thanks!

    Can we randomise this draw in such a way as to ensure that the winner is me? I never win competitions. And I’m an orphan.

    That last part isn’t true.

  • Donald F.

    I hope I can win this drawing, I do not have a lot of money but I have strong passion in photography. I will buy the ebook today.

  • http://anotherphotographynoob.wordpress.com anotherphotographynoob

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
