I'm looking for just a few more photos for the third edition of my book,
Control Systems for Live Entertainment (see
To start each chapter in this edition, I'm including a (monochrome)
"beauty shot" for each discipline. I currently need shots for:
* pyrotechnics (we had a great shot of an unidentifiable pyro show, but
we lost the rights to that)
* ethernet/other networking (currently I've extracted tables, etc from
the text, but a photo would be very cool)
* MIDI/MSC (currently I've extracted tables, etc from the text, but a
photo would be very cool)
I'm not necessarily looking for a technical shot, just an overall one
that is in the theme of the chapter. For example, the current lighting
photo is an abstract shot of a bunch of lights a grid.
Key is that YOU must control the rights to the photo. I can't use the
photo unless I can get someone to sign off on it, guaranteeing that they
control the rights (This is the most difficult part of this whole
process, and corporate bureaucracy has ruled out some very good photos
I can't pay you, but I will give you credit (like "Photo: John
Huntington"--I don't have any captions in this edition) and will sell
you a copy of the book at my discounted rate (I only get a few copies
free so I can't give out 50 copies).
However I will give a few copies of the book to anyone who provides a
color shot I can use on the cover. I currently have permission to use a
good shot of a major outdoor attraction in Las Vegas, but I could use
some more for the back cover, etc.
I'm submitting the whole book to the publisher in the next couple weeks,
so I need anything soon.
