New York, NY (PRWEB) December 12, 2012
For 14 years, Jim Edds has been chasing hurricanes, typhoons, tornadoes and other extreme weather throughout the world. His dramatic still photographs and videos of these storms have appeared on the National Geographic Channel, the Discovery Channel, the Weather Channel and in dozens of magazines.
Now, Edds has channeled his vast experience with extreme weather into a new, one-of-a-kind multimedia book that combines text, photographs and video. It's called "Hurricane Journey" ($9.99) and is available only on the Apple iBook from the Apple iTunes Store.
Edds, now 53, is a 1996 graduate of the New York Institute of Photography. At the time he was working for the Dept. of Environmental Production in the Florida Keys and was an amateur underwater photographer.
"I was also interested in weather photography, but I never figured out how to make money at it. I was looking over the NYIP course work and said I'm going to give this is a try. What I liked about NYIP is I could study on my own time. I didn't have to sit in a classroom. And these are working professionals in New York City...not stuffy college professors. I wanted to make some money with this.”
