$2,000+ Photography Resources for $89. No Kidding!

5-Day-Deal-Main-Sale-GraphicThis event is already over. Please go to the current event that is running September 10 – 15, 2015.


This is easily the greatest photography event of the year. And it has launched just few seconds ago. The Complete Photography Bundle is a package of high-quality photography resources (video classes, ebooks, presets and more) worth $2,000+ (actually quite a bit more than that), and those crazy guys at 5DayDeal.com sell it for just $89. Can you believe it?

Let me do the math for you here: That’s well over 95% discount over the regular price of the products included.

Sounds insane? Well that’s why it’s only available October 15th – 20th. So make sure you get your bundle before the deal expires.

You’re not convinced yet? Check out this FAQ

If you are still with me here, you are probably still searching for the flaw, the catch, the telltale sign that this is too good to be true. $2,000+ for $89??? There’s got to be a catch, right?

Well… no… not really. This deal sounds insane and irrational, but there’s actually a quite effective business model behind it. Let me answer your most pressing questions in the mini FAQ below:

Q: Is this too good to be true?

95% off is actually such a big discount that it raises the typical questions: Is it legit? Is it scam? Are these products actually worth it if they are sold this cheap?

It’s only natural if you are asking these questions. But I can tell you that this is absolutely legit! These are first-class products created by world-class photographers. Just take a look at the list of products and who contributed them. People like Joel Grimes and Lindsay Adler are highly respected and famous all over the world. Alex Koloskov, Jaime Iberra and Martin Bailey are industry leaders that are very active in their community.

Just in case you have doubts, simply email any of them personally and ask if they are really in this. No… seriously! Email them! They will answer!

Q: But how come the price is sooo low?

Well, this has different reasons:

These are all electronic products. Thus, apart from renting and managing a download server, the actual process of selling them does not cost any money. Now obviously, each of these products has its monetary value, but this value is not dependent on any physical distribution mechanism.

Each of the contributors has definite advantages (over selling their product stand-alone) when they participate:

  1. The marketing is easier because there is more value involved,
  2. All contributors together can reach many more people than any one alone,
  3. The 5 Deal Day event became well-known quickly which created a bit of a hype,
  4. For each bundle a contributor sells, they get a commission that in many cases exceeds the price of their own product because they get to sell the whole bundle.

So, you see. Even if the discount is huge, this is still a win-win situation for everyone (including you – the buyer who gets the discount).

Q: If this is such a great thing, why does it end?

Because keeping it running forever would naturally lower the price of each single product to about 5% of its original value forever. It’s the same reason why any discount has to end: Because the product is actually worth much more and the sellers just cannot sustain this over an extended period of time.

Q: So, all of these products are really only worth 5% of their current regular prize?

No, not at all! For the reasons explained above, it is possible to offer this discount for a very limited time (5 days in our case). But each single product in the bundle has a much higher value. Some are actually worth a couple of hundred dollars. They have been created by very talented and very skilled people who spent many years on perfecting their craft and many months on writing, recording, programing, testing, correcting, polishing and supporting their product.

Each one of the products carries the soul of their creators. Of course, they created them to earn some money. But much more than that, each single contributor put their heart into it in order to give something back, to tell their story or simply to help others achieve their goals.

So don’t make the mistake to mix up low prize and low value. This bundle is low prize – awesome value!

Q: How will the bundle be delivered?

Once you have purchased your copy of the bundle at the 5DayDeal.com website, you will get an email with download links for the different products and discounts. Simply download everything to your computer, unpack the respective archives and enjoy the products.

The combined size of the downloads is ~35GB split up into over 40 files that you can download individually. The downloads will be available for you until November 10th. So, you’re not in a hurry, but you should proceed with the downloads as soon as you can. Depending on your Internet connection, this may take a while.

I recommend that you use a download manager. I use the Chrono download manager for the Chrome browser. It lets you add all the downloads simply by clicking on them, it queues them all and downloads them automatically.

Tip 1: Tick the Add paused checkbox in the Chrono settings, so that all the files are queued properly. When you are done queuing them, simply click the Start all button in the Chrono main view.

Tip 2: Add those products to the top of the download queue that you are most interested in. This way you can start checking them out while the other product files are still downloading.

Q: Who is actually selling the bundle, and can I trust them?

The 5DayDeal event is organized and operated by a team of four photographers and designers that take care of all the technical, organizational and financial stuff behind it:

These guys are awesome. I have worked with them before, and I absolutely trust them. Everything went flawlessly and whenever a problem did occur, they resolved it quickly and professionally.

Q: Where can I turn when I run into problems with the bundle?

The 5DayDeal team will be happy to help you with any possible problem that you may have, whether it’s related to the purchase, the downloads, the products or anything else. Simply email them at support@5daydeal.com. You can also reach them via social media, but maybe they will react more promptly to emails.

You can also send your email to support@farbspiel-photo.com if you feel more comfortable with that. I’ll be happy to forward it and get you help quickly.

Q: Wait! What's in it for you?

Me? As a contributor to this bundle, I get a commission for every referral that leads to a purchase of a copy. This is the deal: I add value to the bundle, I help sell it, and I get a portion of the revenue.

The product I have contributed is my Mask It Like a Pro! video course.

    I missed the first deal several months ago. Now I purchased this one as soon as it appeared and spent two days downloading. The first course I opened and watch is “mask it like a pro”, and enjoy it. I’ve learned so much! For Photoshop enthusiasts, this course is a must have!
