The story behind the book

A few years ago I got stuck as a photographer. I didn’t know what to photograph, how to find an interesting subject or how to move forward. Finally, I decided to set myself a project photographing craftspeople – people who make things with their hands. I started by contacting a local artist and potter to see if I could photograph them at work. Both said yes, the project got started, and I found my way forward.

Now, I realize the breakthrough was giving myself an assignment with a clear brief. And I wish I had given myself more briefs, and seen how I was surrounded by interesting subjects. I just had to look at familiar subjects differently, and make an effort to photograph them.

So I put together a set of 50 black and white assignments in a book that was published last year. It was so popular that I decided to write another book, with even more assignments. The aim is to give you the same spark of inspiration that I gave myself all those years ago.

I wrote this book imagining that I could go back in time and give it to myself ten or twenty years ago. I would have been a more purposeful photographer and built a much better portfolio of work. Now you can benefit from the lessons I’ve learned.
