Designing and producing photography books offer a unique way of presenting a project and also offer a challenge to the photographer. The result can be the perfect blend of image and text in a convenient presentation package.

PDF Books

A downloadable PDF book offers a fresh, and yet familiar, way of presenting information to the viewer. Events, projects and ideas can be laid out in text, photographs and illustrations giving a one document solution to presentations that can be easily distributed and viewed whenever the viewer wishes to.

The downloadable photo books featured here were produced for the Solo Photo Book Month project where the goal was to shoot, edit and create a PDF photo book containing 35+ images in the space of 31 days.

It was a challenging project on a number of levels and a great introduction to creating, developing and using the photography book format. Design, layout, the text, order and use of the photographs are just some of the considerations that have to take into account.

Each book was different and had its own challenges that needed to be overcome, but the immense satisfaction that a finished book gives is unbeatable. Sadly the Solo Photo Book Month Project closed for good in 2011, but all of the book projects seen on this website stem from that project’s introduction to making a photography book.

Published Book Projects

A completely brand new, redesigned and published edition of the 2011 Sand, Sky, Sea and Street Solo Photo Book month book has been released under the title Sea, Sky, Sand and Street.

The book features photography from the original free PDF book along with brand new photographs, printed onto premium quality paper, and is available to purchase with prices starting at £22 plus postage.

The ‘Sea Sky, Sand and Street’ landscape and documentary photography book is available in softcover and hardback editions HERE.

For 2019, two books are planned. The first, a photo zine called Caught by the Tide released in July 2019, contains photography from a Norfolk trip in 2016. The second book called ‘The Town Towns’ will feature images taken in Edinburgh in 2015. A provisional release date is Q4 2019.

Planned Book Projects

Several book publishing projects are currently in development including a long-delayed retrospective look back over ten years of photography from the Norfolk project that is planned for release in Q2 2020.

Another long term book being developed will feature images taken on the Isle of Skye and around the Highlands of Scotland. The release date for that book is provisionally set for Q4 2020.

A third book called ‘Seven Hills‘ featuring images shot in Edinburgh is planned for release in Q1 2020.
