#IPHONEONLY Book – Now Available

We’re extremely happy to announce that my first photo book #IPHONEONLY, is now published and available for purchase.

My publisher Les Welch, describes it as ‘a book for the people’ and with that in mind it was designed and priced to appeal to a broad audience.. young photographers and students, people that enjoy using their phone camera, as well as seasoned photographers and those who may just be curious to see what is possible with such a device.

We hope you enjoy the book.. we’re very proud of the finished result, and ultimately we hope that the book will provide some inspiration.

A book of landscape photographs, made entirely on a camera phone.
Foreword by Wayne Ford.
ISBN: 978-0-9929111
Softback 72 pages, A5 (210x148mm)
60 colour photographs.
Published in May 2014 and printed in the United Kingdom, using a waterless lithographic print process. The waterless lithographic print process was specifically chosen for its ability to reproduce extremely fine detail, with the resulting piece beautifully echoing the mood of the original work, both in colour and depth.

The price is £15.00 plus shipping.
The book is available from the Lionhouse Bindery here.

Thanks go to Les Welch, who had faith, Jack Lowe for introducing me to Instagram and to Wayne Ford for kindly writing the foreword.

An exciting morning spent with my friends at the Lionhouse Bindery..

Personal Work Trip – The Isle of Eigg

Just back from a nine day trip away, shooting personal work on the Isle of Eigg.

Due to the adverse weather conditions I stopped off at the Bridge of Orchy, until the ferry service resumed. This allowed me some time in Glen Orchy and Glen Etive.

Below is a selection of #iPhoneonly images, including a few of the usual lonesome behind the scenes pictures.

A week away in Glen Orchy and Glen Etive

Just back from a rather wet and blustery week away, shooting personal work in Glen Orchy and Glen Etive.

Upon revisiting some favourite old haunts, I was saddened and shocked to see so much tree damage, caused by the recent storms, scenes that I had photographed previously, gone forever.

Below is a selection of #iPhoneonly images, including a few behind the scenes pictures..

Transatlantic Protection

A little transatlantic protection was required for the A2 and A3 print portfolios, in time for our LA and Palm Springs Photo Festival road trip, with Greenhouse Reps, in a couple of weeks.

Thanks go to Chris Bradley at Packhorse, for his help and advice, and of course to Cathy Robert, who has made my leather bound print portfolios for me for as long as I can remember.

NNW show catalogue available to purchase

The North Northwest Beginnings show catalogue is available to purchase.

The catalogue is 210mm x 210mm and consists of 24 pages. Each catalogue is signed and dated with the year.

The technical specification was important on this job, as we wanted the finest print quality to echo that of the original work.

The cover is 380 Micron Horizon Pulpboard with embossed artists seal, with interior pages on 200gsm Satimat.

The book was printed using a Sublima hybrid non-uniform dot. The screen resolution is 280 lpi which boasts a higher definition than the 175lpi, normally used by printers.

Images were sampled at 360dpi at the final printed sized to maximise the use of this higher quality printing technique.

You can preview and purchase the catalogue here

The Most Photographed Mountain In Scotland

Just back from a productive week of shooting personal work in the Glen Orchy and Glen Coe area of the Scottish Highlands. The weather delivered everything that I could have hoped for, Hoar frost, Ice and a timely dump of snow.

Watch this space for the finished imagery (you can subscribe to the blog for update alerts)

In the meantime here’s a ‘behind the scenes’ shot of just one of the set-ups, the River Etive, with what is quite possibly the most photographed mountain in Scotland rising up behind, Buachaille Etive Mòr.

The picture below was made on an iPhone, with a quick pass through Snapseed..
