I think it is important to start the New Year off right — with a giveaway!

I know a very talented photographer named Nicole. Her photographs grace the pages of magazines across the country. She teaches classes across the world.

Whether you have a product that you want to sell and need to photograph it beautifully, or simply want to be a great photographer, she teaches you how.

She recently started teaching those classes online and began publishing textbooks as well so that those who can’t take her classes in person can still learn her jewels of wisdom. I read her photo 101 book on a plane ride over the holiday and was inspired to be a better photographer in 2011.

And so today, so that you can be an inspired photographer in 2011, I’m giving away a copy of her book: Photo 101.

You can learn about and sign up for her online classes here. There are even classes in Photoshop and Illustrator available if you need to brush up on those skills as well. And this book will definitely get your juices flowing. To see some of her beautiful work, you can check out her blog A Little Sussy, where she posts tid bits from her latest photo shoots and other great finds. You’ll love it.

Simply leave a comment telling me what you are inspired to do in the New Year, and you are automatically entered to win!

Winner will be announced Wednesday at 5pm PST. Happy New Year!
