A photobook about my adventure, a journey on TRES HOMBRES across the Atlantic Ocean

The journey on board of TRES HOMBRES has been the adventure of my life. Now I want to create a photo book with the photos and journals of that voyage. My goal is to publish a high quality photobook. Approx. 120 pages, size 21x28cm, all in high quality color printing.

What is this project all about?

1000 Meilen Wind - The Photobook
In October 2014 I set sails. I travelled across the Atlantic Ocean to the Carribean, on board of TRES HOMBRES, the only sailing cargo ship without an engine. There and during several stops along the route, we stored cargo like wine, rum and chocolate, to bring these goods to Europe without leaving a carbon footprint.
On the journey I took photos and wrote a weblog.
Now it's time to comprise all this matieral in a high class picture book.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

It's a photobook for all the sailors, the travellers, adventurers and everybody who wants to be inspired by an extraordinary journey.

Why would you support this project?

My journey was an adventure that cost a lot of energy and enthusiasm. But in the end, it was a big dream come true. It's the same with the photobook to come.
I made the decision to go without a publishing company by heart. I chose freedom, but also the risk to fail. Just like I did when sailing out on the ocean.
So every funding is a bit like the wind, bringing me closer to shore.

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?

Successfully funded, I will realise a first edition of the photobook as softcover. That means I will need the money for:

  • hardcover
  • layout
  • printing
  • binding
  • marketing etc.

What if there is more money than needed for funding
If there is more money, than is needed to reach the funding goal, I will use it the make the book even more awesome.
There are some ideas to do so:

  • more pages
  • higher quality binding
  • and lots more

Who are the people behind the project?

It's only me. No professional publisher, no company behind me. Just me, the feelance photographer and adventurer.

Okay, seriously: I have some help for layout and production, but all the responsibility is on my shoulders.

Es wird eine ganz klassische Danksagung geben, in der natürlich auch alle die mich abseits der Finanzierung unterstützen erwähnt werden.
