Books

 When I’m teaching, I believe in KISS – keep it simple, sweetie. Photography is a highly technical subject – but I don’t want that to be a block to the enjoyment of the craft. It is a thrill to create a beautiful photo and I want other keen photographers to experience this. It can be accomplished at each stage of the learning process: beginner, intermediate, advanced. 

Technology plays an important part, it’s true, but I’ve found a way to make it very straightforward. My book, The Nature Photography Cookbook, is devised as a recipe book, where each lesson is a clear, step-by-step process. I place a high emphasis on aesthetics because if you just rely on technology alone, well then, you haven’t created “art”. 

You can download some sample chapters here and purchase a copy here.
