This has been a long time coming, I have not just been fannying around since Hot Shots came out, no sir! I have busy working with the people at Rotovision and have written a new book. It’s called Photo Opp in the USA and 52 Photographic Projects in the UK, both books have the same sweet sweet contents so don’t worry about which one you get!
The new book goes in depth into 52 photographic techniques that anyone can try out with the use of accessible kit. So varied are the topics covered in this book that I enlisted the help of 20 contributors from all over the world. This has helped make the book as varied as possible, click here to read mini bios of the all the contributors and to find links to their websites, flickrs, twitters etc.
Getting you hands on the book
I will be selling signed copies of the book and shipping them worldwide for £22.95 + shipping costs. For deals on buying the new book with Hot Shots click here. You can of course pre-order the book from Amazon UK here or Amazon USA here.
To celebrate the book coming out I will be holding 2 UK launches (and maybe more in the future), one in Brighton and one in London. 52 Photographic Projects will be on sale at these events for £20 (rrp £22.99). That’s just 38p a project! Also for people slow on the uptake there will be copies of Hot Shots for sale and signed for the special price of £10 (rrp 12.99).
The Brighton launch will be held on Thursday 15th July from 6.30 pm at Add Colour, Brightons newest café / gallery in the North Laines. When I arranged with the café owner, Add Colour was still being put together. Everything is shiny and new so you’d better be on your best behavior. I will be supplying beers on the night as it’s the home crowd. Once they’ve been drunk we can move on to the the Dorset. Because five of the book’s contributors live in Brighton it should mean that you can get your book signed by them in addition to me. You can join the Facebook event page to keep up to date with all the latest developments.
64-65 North Road (old parking fine office!)
The London launch will be held on Wednesday the 21st July at 6:30pm at Bar Sequence in Islington. Bar Sequence is a great venue as they are, in their own words, “equipped to deliver a unique digital audio visual experience”. Sounds cool. It has seven plasma screens around the bar that can be used to show slideshows and videos, I’m gonna use them to transmit subliminal messages so you that you buy my books and enlist yourself onto Hot Shots the photography course.
