Book Release Date Revisions

Calton Hill, Edinburgh 2018

Book Delay

With Christmas come and gone its time to get a few things sorted out regarding my book release timetable. A couple of big changes to the release dates for upcoming photography books were made a couple of weeks ago. Quite simply the amount of photography work before Christmas meant I wasn’t able to concentrate on the text for The Two Towns book that was due for release in December.

Rather than rush the book out, I’ve decided to delay the release until the end of next year. It is a drastic change but I really do want to release the book in the runup to the Christmas period. December 2020 will mark the fifth anniversary of the trip to Edinburgh – plus I will have a whole year to work on the introduction and other remaining text for the book. The text hasn’t flowed nearly as easily as I would have liked!

Seven Hills

With the delay of the Two Towns book, the next book for release will be Edinburgh: Seven Hills. I plan to release that book in the early Spring. The images are in place as well as a lot of the text. Only the introduction text is left to complete and I have a good idea of what I’m writing for Seven Hills. It will also be the first colour photography book I’ve released so I’ll be breaking new ground.

More details about the Seven Hills book will be added to the website soon.

More Photo Zines

This year saw the release of my first photo book in over eight years. The photo zine ‘Caught by the Tide‘ came out in July and was the first photo magazine I’d ever produced. Overall it was a great experience creating the zine and I plan to do more. I may even put another zine together in 2020 if I can find the right project.

So the year has been a mix of the successful release of the zine and the delay to the second book. Next year should be good with a book release pencilled in for early in the year and also towards the end.

Goodbye Facebook

This has been coming for quite a while but finally, after a number of years of putting it off, I’ve decided to delete my Facebook pages. Both my personal page and the Richard Flint Photography page are going through the drawn-out process of being wiped. Facebook makes it easy to join but a lot less easier to say goodbye.

Although I joined the social network quite a few years ago now, I very rarely updated or even logged into the increasingly bloated social network site. For some reason, I never did like the social network in the same way as Twitter or Instagram. The argument that it is great staying in contact with friends no longer really applies as many of my core friends also have Instagram accounts. So it was time to pull the plug.

From a business point of view, Facebook rarely delivered anything of value. For years I was stuck with the same number of followers with little chance of increasing that number unless I paid Facebook to boost my profile. The page was stagnant. Again it was time to say goodbye.

The last couple of years have seen me rethink what websites and social media sites I use. The current core sites of Twitter and Instagram remain safe. The deletion of Facebook is a big change but a welcome one. Maybe it’s something I should have done much earlier.

Redbubble Store Revamp

Over the summer a number of improvements have been made to this website and others including a long-overdue revamp of the Redbubble store.

The Richard Flint Photography Redbubble Store

Launched in June 2008, the Redbubble store has delivered prints and other items to customers around the world. Speedway photo T-shirts to Australia and iPhone cases and prints of Glencoe to the USA – just to mention just a couple of recent orders. Over the years the store has expanded further as new images and new products have become available. It was time for an update.

Framed Prints and much More

The Redbubble store needed some love. Especially critical was the photography available there needed to be categorized better. Most important was the range of items available really needed to be updated across the portfolios. Initially just framed prints and other wall art had been available. That has now all changed to include more clothing, mugs, iPhone and iPad covers, notepads and bags – to mention just a few products. In most cases over 60 products are now available to buy.

More Photos and Portfolios

The most noticeable change regards the portfolios. More categories have been added to aid those looking for images of a specific subject matter. Animals, lighthouses, coast, whisky, street photography and more have been added with more to come. The Scotland images have also been broken down into regional portfolios that currently include Islay, Jura, Edinburgh, Borders and Skye. It makes finding a favourite image so much easier.
