Buy our New Posing eBook and Go in the Draw to Win $2000 worth of Photography Gear

NewImageLast week we launched a brand new dPS eBook – Portraits: Striking the Pose – an eBook to help you take natural looking portraits that bring out the true character in your subjects.

When we launched this eBook we suspected it would do well as it’s a popular topic and written by one of our much loved authors – Gina Milicia – who really knows her stuff.

However we had no idea just how popular it would be. In the first two days of it’s launch we saw more people grab a copy than we usually do in the first two weeks of a launch.

And the response has been so positive from those who got a copy.

Check out this comment from one of our readers – Brad Granger – who bought a copy last week:

I picked up a copy of this eBook last week and have read it through 3 times already.

I can see that what I’m learning is already improving my portraits but what excites me most is that I took a photo of my wife that she’s proud to show her friends! She normally doesn’t like photos of herself but today she uploaded it to Facebook – something I’ve never known her to do before.

Thanks DPS and Gina!

Win $2000 USD to Put Towards Camera Gear

win camera gear with our eBookWe launched Striking the Pose with a bonus set of 7 posing printables with 67 poses that you can put in your camera bag to help you on your next launch. This is an early bird offer only but before we end that discount we thought we’d add one more sweetener for those who pick up the eBook before our launch ends.

Everyone who buys a copy of Portraits: Striking the Pose before midnight on Friday 28 February US eastern time (including those who already have bought one) will go into the draw to win $2000 to go toward camera gear.

The Prize

The winner (chosen randomly) can choose a combination of gear to suit their needs. So Canon owners can choose Canon gear. Nikon owners can choose Nikon accessories or a new body. Micro 4/3 camera owners can choose lenses to suit their cameras.

The winner can choose to spend their $2000 USD on one single camera or lens or might choose to buy a bundle of things (as long as they total up to $2000).


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 Portraits: Striking the Pose? – you’re in the draw and don’t need to do anything else. This is also the case if you bought it as part of a bundle of Gina’s other eBooks.
  • 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 Portraits: Striking the pose before midnight on Friday 28 February (US eastern time) and you get:

  • 7 Bonus Posing Printable Guides (worth $9.95)
  • an entry into the $2000 gear giveaway
  • Plus (and most importantly) you’ll come away from reading the eBook with some inspiration and knowledge to go away and take beautiful portrait images – this eBook has the potential to transform your photography!

To enter simply buy Portraits: Striking the Pose before midnight on Friday 28 February (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 in the coming days. 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 just a few weeks to take advantage of this offer – so don’t hesitate and pick up your copy of Portraits: Striking the Pose here today!
