Sea, sand, Sky and Street – 2011

Caught by the Tide – 2019

The Two Towns – Coming soon

Designing and producing photography books provides a unique way of presenting a project and also offers a challenge to the photographer. Since 2011 two books, ‘Sea, Sand Sky and Street’ and ‘Caught by the Tide’, have been released with a third book due that will complete the iPhone photography book trilogy.

PDF Books

The downloadable PDF photography 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, text, order and use of the photographs are just some of the considerations that have to take into account.

The downloadable PDF book provides a concise, 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.

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.

The second book called ‘The Town Towns’ will feature images taken in Edinburgh in 2015. This book will be released very soon.

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.

Another long-term photography book being developed will feature images taken on the Isle of Skye and around the Highlands of Scotland. The book will bring together over ten years of photographs shot across the Highlands and Islands.

A third book called ‘Seven Hills‘ featuring street photography and landscape images shot around Edinburgh is also in development.
