Black Friday 2019 (with a FREE gift from me)

Listen to the automated audio version of this article:

Yes, it's that time of the year: Black Friday 2019 is here!

I have always found good deals for Black Friday (and Cyber Monday). I'm not a big spender, though: last year, I only purchased one item. But I spend (pun intended) quite some time looking at offers.

This year I already purchased the upgrade to Nik Collection, probably my favourite plugin for Lightroom and Photoshop. And now I know I'll be looking at deals almost all day. There are a couple specific items I want to buy that I hope will be on offer today.

There are a few places that are of some interest to me and maybe to you as well…


Since I'll be looking at deals this year, I also decided to help you. I have prepared a list on Amazon, and I'll fill it with the best deals I find.
It will start small and grow throughout the day for as long as I can find good deals.
There are already a couple good deals! One for a tripod (that I had borrowed from a friend and tested) and plenty of hard drives, which are always useful.

If you're curious or even if you're lazy and you rather see my list than go through all the deals yourself, here is my ever-growing list:

There is also a list with all my photographic equipment; maybe those items will be featured in deals, too.

Society 6

Some of my stuff has been available on the Society6 store for a couple of years now and still sells pretty well. It's a good selling platform, and the site runs deals all day. There's a 30% discount on all items and free shipping.
If you fancy having my photos in your house for a reasonable price (not what I charge to collectors for large-scale prints), this might be the way.
My store is here:

The Society6 platform has changed, so my offerings are now different. They are still of the same quality, of course.


Now, this one I suppose is for those who like memorabilia.
I recently found that my very first photography book is still available on Blurb (and that I had money to collect there). It's a book featuring my first steps on Instagram from its launch in 2009. You might have read the story of how I started on Instagram. Well, this is the book that shows what I was doing back then. And that got me into my first exhibitions.

It showcases photos taken with the iPhone for a period of 2 years, between Florence and London. I'm emotionally attached to it, but I suppose you might find it interesting too.
Here is the book:

There is a 50% off through December with the code BIGFIFTY. Re-check during sales periods for more codes.

FREE 2020 Calendar

But now let's talk about my gift to you. All my followers have been amazing this year, so I thought I'd give something back.
I didn't prepare large wall calendars to print and sell this year, saving on paper and plastic. Instead, I went back to my old design tools and created something to give away free of charge.
I put together a small calendar with my most popular Instagram posts of the year and some extra unreleased photos exclusive for you.

All you have to do to get the calendar is visit this page and fill out the form: xyz/
Due to high demand (THANK YOU!), the link will remain active until the end of the year. Happy?

UPDATE: the link has now been deactivated

Easy peasy :)
And again, thanks for being so amazing!
