Times are tough. Unemployment is still high. And the holiday season is fast approaching. So I looked around at what I could do to make the season better for someone and came up with an idea. I am going to give away a giant stack of photography and technology books to one lucky winner. Now, the books cover a wide range of topics and experience levels so if you win them, consider passing along the ones you don’t need or want to someone else who could use them.
So what are the books? Well, here is a list along with the Amazon page for each so that if you want to buy one, you can.

- Nikon D3200 Digital Field Guide. Alan Hess Amazon Link
- The new iPad Fully Loaded. Alan Hess Amazon Link
- Composition Digital Field Guide. Alan Hess Amazon Link

Would love to win that stack!
I bought “All Access” last week and just started reading it… sure wish I have seen it before my first attempt at concert photography a couple months ago.
That stack would be amazing! Thanks for offering the giveaway
I would love to win these books – the ones I already own or do not need I would definitely pass on. Thanks so much!
Thanks for doing this. For sure I’d share them. I don’t even own a D3200 or an iPad..
Incredible giveaway! Whether I win or not, a big THANK YOU for doing this, Alan.
Books are good man! You can never have too many around. Thanks for having this giveaway. A very cool idea!
What a gret thing your doing Alan!
I hope I win but whoever does is lucky as all get out.
Any chance if I’m lucky enough to win that you might Autograph
Your concert book?
And thanks for putting on such a great class at PSW Vegas ,
I’m already saving to be able to attend your precon class assuming you will be doing it again.
Well thanks again and Happy Holidays to all!
These books are awesome!
If I win I might pass along the D3200 and iPad books since I don’t own any of those but the rest are keepers!
Thanks for doing this giveaway.
Great offer, Alan. I’d pass the D3200 along and give the iPad one to my sister.
What an amazing collection of books. As one that is trying to decide where I want to specialize in can tell you that I’ll probably buy some of them if I dont win!
What a grand idea, and an amazing gift. I would love to have this stack, and would generously share it with others. It certainly gives you a wealth of choices, and an opportunity to widen your knowledge. Thanks!
In the meantime, you remind me to gather some other binds of wisdom and to pass them along to others as well. Perfect season, perfect idea 🙂
I would love to have this stack. I would share it with my photofriends and give some as gifts 🙂
It would be an amazing Xmas gift! Here in Portugal this year most people will not have a typical Xmas due to the very hard economic conditions… Getting part of Your own book library would be really special!
Don’t know if I’m alowed to enter, being from another country, but who knows, maybe I’ll be a lucky animal ;). Great Idea, awesome stack!
I took Alan’s class in Concert Photography with the intention of just learning more about photography…6 months later a local music mag. offered me a position to be one of their shooters… a week later Alan’s book All Access became available and I immediately bought it..everything in that book I’ve put to use…although I’ve been reading photog manuals since the ’80’s…this is the only dog-eared photo book in the house!
Alan what a great treat, sir! I’ve been following you for a little over a year since watching your Kelby Concert video and it gave me so much information. Having lived in SD myself I know of all/most of the venues you shoot and can just imagine shooting in the cozy comfines of places like Belly Up Tavern. I would love to have the opportunity to get into this drawing as well. Thanks so much for your generosity.Cheers
I would really like The Low light and Night photography book. I want to get better at it, along with everything else.
Definitely stoked about this opportunity. Been following you, looking at your photography for inspiration, and reading the blog for a couple years now.
These books will make someone happy indeed!
Awesome idea for a contest Alan!
Looks like a wonderful and useful assortment of books!! Would love to win these!
These would be a great addition to my library. I love your work Alan. Thanks for doing this.
Good luck to everybody.
What an amazing giveaway. This stack of books will be an amazing resource to whoever wins. I’d love to win them. 🙂
Awesome! Would love to win this collection of books.
Great idea. Several books here I could make good use of and several I would definitely pass on to others.
if you are ok with it, I am going to take the idea and do the same with some of my books as well.
great idea alan! would love the all access book and i’d love to share the others! 😀
Me! Me! Pick me! That’s an awesome assortment!!!
looks awesome. Thanks!
Alan, this is such a thoughtful thing to do. Thank you.
Thank you. Alan Rocks! 🙂
Alan, Thanks for the opportunity.
I’m still waiting for another Alan Hess class on Kelby Training.
Those would look really cool in the same roof as me 🙂
I think maybe i’ll do something similar here!
Spread the knowledge and the good will!
I have All Access (which is fabulous, btw) but could certainly make use of the books on lighting. Would love to win this.
Thanks for all you do Alan!
Already planning who I should share these with. Great idea!
I just did see your FB notice of this. How great for you to help others like this. Thank you for reaching out like this to people. My daughter is 21 and quite the artist. She hasn’t been able to take an actual photography class as her high school stopped teaching it the year she was to take it. We love books and love sharing books and knowledge. Sharing is a win win for everyone. I am most interested especially in the low light photography as my daughter is on the NKU Equestrian team and there are no photographers at the shows and having anything to remember these great times they are having is oh so precious and important. I really need a lot of work in low light to say the least. If I don’t win maybe I will have to search out that book anyway.
BTW, love your concert photos. You are very talented.
Alan, great idea for a giveaway, and I don’t own any of these. Good luck to everyone.
What a lovely ‘pass it forward’ idea for the festive season!
Alan you are truly generous! I give away my books too once I am done with them to spread the knowledge again for those who can’t afford them. Thanks for the chance to win!
Because I’m more of an “unofficial” concert photographer (shot Sting, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Anastacia, Train, Supertramp, Duran Duran, Dave Koz, and a few others) I could always pick up a few more tricks from those books.
Nothing better than a stack of photography books to keep you company during the cold winter months!
A fan of your work for some time now, would love to get your books since it is a bit hard to get them where I live.
Thanks Alan for a great idea. Heard your interview on the The Candid Frame this week. Loved it. Sounds like in addition to being a great photographer you are also a great human being. Thanks for thinking of others.
What a great prize. With just getting my business off the ground, these books would be very helpful. Thanks Alan for giving them as a prize, they will be an asset to whomever is the lucky winner. Cheers to you Sir and Happy Holidays.
That is a fantastic stack of awesomeness! I would definitely use all of them especially the wedding ones/except for the Nikon book and share them when I’m done!
Hope you have a very happy Thanksgiving!
Some good readin’ there, Alan. One way or another I’m going get my hands on a copy of All Access! Drop my name in the hat, please.
It’s remarkable designed for me to have a site, which is useful in favor of my experience. thanks admin
Would absolutely love to get my hands on these books. I’ve got stacks of photo books in my library as it is, but always room for more.
Alan, thanks very much for the opportunity to win this awesome collection of books. I’ve spent 19 years on the business side of the music business but not I’m finally following my passion of photography. A marriage of the music and my photography is a perfect combination and finding your web site has been a huge inspiration! Amazing photos…I hope I can capture what you’ve been able to do with my camera! Thanks!!
