Time for some updates about the two books due for release over the next year or so, and there is some good news and bad news.

First of all we’ll start with the bad news that the book releases have been delayed until 2014. This is due to work commitments and delays in the design of the books. Getting the books exactly right is the first priority and i don’t want to rush such important projects.

So now to the good news. 2014 will see two books launched with the first being the Scotland book. The Norfolk Project book will be released in the late summer. Originally the plan had been to do the Norfolk book first, but work on the Scotland /Skye photography book (the book title has yet to be decided) is coming along nicely with already 78 pages completed. The exact number of pages in this 13×11 (33x28cm) landscape format book has also yet to be decided but it will certainly be over 100 pages.

As for the Norfolk Project book , well it needs more time for design and development. Scanning all of the images required for the book is just one epic task that needs doing. Again the number of images has yet to be decided but it will be a big book – most likely the biggest I’ve done so far.

Finally, Sea, Sky, Sand and Street, my 2011 Norfolk photography book, is now available to download AGAIN from Blurb. Sadly the eBook hasn’t been available for a while after changes were made on the Blurb website that were not communicated to me! The iPad edition of the book has been added again  and can be purchased on my Blurb bookshop for £3.49

The book has also been sent to Apple for review and, hopefully, inclusion in the Apple iBookstore. The review should take two to three weeks and if everything goes swimmingly, Sun, Sky, Sea and Street will be purchasable from iTunes for £3.49 too.

A Highland Plan

This time last month i was in the Highlands, a remarkably beautiful place that is a photographer’s paradise. Images are round ever corner whether it be the mountains, the lochs or castles like Eilean Donan seen in the image above. The visit, as well as being a great creative canvas,  made me rethink  a one of my planned projects.

Originally I intended to release another photography book about the Highlands later this year, but after some thought I’ve decided to delay the book until late next year. The reasons are many but what it really comes down to is two factors. First i think the idea of doing a book each year is rather limiting.

A book should only be released if it has strong photographs, otherwise it is just a waste of time. Secondly,  the Sea, Sky, Sand and Street project worked well and produced a strong photography book. To rush and  release something when it isn’t complete or ready seems ridiculous. You don’t make a book just for making’s sake, it has to be right!

The images taken up there this year are a start. The foundations have been laid and next year more photography will be shot to  be added to the book project.

So it looks like 2012 will see no book releases by me. I’m happy enough with that. I’d rather release a great book occasionally that a weak one each year. One book remains on the list for release next year. The  Norfolk Project photography book, covering over ten years of photos will take shape over the coming months with a release due for the summer of 2013.

It’s hard to believe, but it is nearly a year since I started work on Sea, Sky, Sand and Street.  How times flies!

To celebrate the first anniversary of the project, the book (currently available to buy on Blurb) will be reduced starting from June 23rd to 9th July marking a year to the day, the sixteen day shoot in Norfolk.
