In 2012, I self-published my first book of landscape photographs. I raised the funds to do this via the crowd-funding website Kickstarter.com.
I needed $11,000 to produce 1,000 copies. By its completion, the project had raised $39,383 from 341 backers - 358% of the original goal. Due to the success of this campaign, I increased the size of the book from 112 to 128 pages, printed 3,000 copies and produced an additional luxury leather-bound edition.
The fundraising was so successful that the book was profitable before it ever went to press, and I'm going to share the details of how this was achieved below.
