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.

Zine Details

The twenty-four-page magazine has a total of nineteen images taken in Norfolk in 2016. The photographs were taken during a final family holiday with my mother that year.

The images conclude a trilogy of mobile-based photography shot in the English county over a number of years starting in 2009.

Norfolk Photozine Release Next Week

By |2019-07-01T22:42:12+01:00July 1st, 2019|Categories: News|Tags: , , , , , , |

After a delay due to ill health, I’m pleased to announce that the photo zine ‘Caught by the Tide’ will be released next week.

The Zine

The 24-page photo zine will contain nineteen images shot in Norfolk during a week-long visit in September 2016. Sadly the trip was to give my terminally ill mother a final family holiday. Shooting the images provided a small amount of escape.

Most of the recent work has been focussed around the text and setting the right tone for the zine. The images were taken during a very tough year, both emotionally and mentally and the text needs to reflect that period without being too gloomy. Not easy given the circumstances.

Finishing Touches

So this week will see the finishing touches made to the text before the zine is sent off. A web page will then be added to the website so that ‘Caught by the Tide’ can be purchased. More details about the price and where to purchase the zine will follow.

Zine Podcast

After release I’ll be recording a podcast about the zine and the photographs that will be released later this month.

New Edinburgh Photos for Book

The Piper’s Audience – Lawnmarket, Edinburgh

The final images for the Seven Hills book were shot during a visit to a very wet Edinburgh in early April. I got wet and the camera got very wet too. A worrying moment was had when a bit of water poured out of the front of my 35mm lens. Fortunately, it was water from the front of the filter rather than inside the lens. The rain just added that extra challenge.

The street photography images shot that day fill in a few gaps with regard to geography and subject matter. Overall I’m rather pleased with what I got during my short time there. The level of tourists meant that I could work pretty much without being noticed. Everyone had a camera! The only concern was making sure the camera and lens were dried regularly.

A favourite shot from the day is The Piper’s Audience taken along the Royal Mile at Lawnmarket. I’d taken some shots earlier but found them unusable due to rainwater on the filter. After removing the filter I went back a couple of minutes later to grab the image seen above. The line of people, most of whom seem to be taking or checking a photograph, tell their own story.

The book now goes into the final stages of adding and editing text. I am tempted to slightly delay the release of the book until November. This new date would fit in easier with work plans plus it would also mark four years since the book’s first images were shot in November 2015.
