After finishing my 2nd book on the 24th of March 2010 work started on Toy Cameras less than a month later. Toy Cameras was then finished in 4 months, just after I had the book launches for Photo Op / 52 Photographic Projects. Because most toy cameras require good lighting conditions for shooting I shot most of the photos for the book in Sunny Barcelona and California (it’s a hard life). I had not used some of the cameras in the book before, so to make sure they there where the best examples of what the cameras can do in the book, there are photos from 42 other contributors. The book serves as a guide to what different toy cameras are good for are what there particular quirks are. You can read more about what the book is about here.
At the moment it’s just out in the UK as “Toy Cameras” but in May it will be released as “Fantastic Plastic Cameras” in the US (amazon US link). You can get signed copies from me at the same price that amazon UK is selling them (£12.49 normal price £14.99) with free UK shipping for a limited time only! I will also ship anywhere in the world, more details here.
I have not got any book launches planed this time round as I have already got loads on what with all the talks and courses I have planed. But if you’re in Brighton and you want to get a book I will be attending Andy Wilson’s and Andrew White’s talk at Add the Colour (Brighton) this Thursday evening. If you’re going to that event and you should if you are into photography! You can get a book from me. After the talk (8:30ish) a group usually ends up in the Foundry Pub on Foundry Street as well. If you think you might want to get one email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I know to bring one for you.
Hope you see you at Andy Wilson’s and Andrew White’s talk and/or at one of my upcoming talks.
