When you have taken as many photographs as I have there comes a time when you feel the need to do something with them. The obvious options are social media sites to share among your friends or to spread the images wider than a website is a given.
And that is where the idea of the eBook came from, a format which anyone can use and be published on iTunes. Doing the first book is, I’m told, the hard one….. deciding the subject, format, wording etc however for me it seemed straightforward, especially the subject.
I have an obsession, there i said it and my obsession is with The Glen Etive Road so, clearly that was going to be the subject of my first ‘book’. When compiling the book I deliberately made it “bite size” in that i could have filled it with 100 pages of similar words or photographs but the reader would quickly get bored with that so it’s a compact 35 pages long with what i consider to be the cream of the photographs.
What was surprising was I appear to have gotten prolific with books 2 & 3 already finished awaiting publishing and book 4 in the planning stage.
Book 2 is called “iScotland : Scotland through the lens of an iPhone” and will hopefully dispel the photographer lead rumour that you need expensive kit to take meaningful pictures.
Book 3 is called “Scotland By Lay-By: An easily accessible journey through the Scottish Highlands” with the idea being that every picture was taken within 10ft of my car thus giving the reader the chance too see Scotland the easy way. i have even including the grid reference on most of the photographs so the locations of the pictures can be found and enjoyed.
Book 4 will be called “The Waterfall Diaries” and will be an extended compilation of the articles written by me for this site. My hope is to extend the series to possibly 9 or 10 books.These books are in essence to advertise my photography with the hope hat sometime in the future i can become professional and make a living from it, I think my photography is of a sufficient quality but will let others decide that.
