Beyond the Camera contains 25 essays packed full of practical ideas that you can apply to your creative processes, to become the photographer that you want to be.

The book comes in two sections. The first, How to be a Better Photographer, explores the ideas that you can use to improve your photography and be more creative.

The second, Behind the Photo, takes some of my favorite images and explains the processes and thoughts that went into them.

Between them both you’ll get plenty of ideas that you can put into action for yourself, starting today.

Beyond the Camera is written for you:

  • The book is packed with tried and tested ideas that get real world results.
  • It has depth – you’ll come back to it again and again as you put the advice in the essays into action.
  • It’s beautifully laid out and easy to read, with any jargon or hard to understand terms.
  • It’s full of big, colorful and inspirational photos.
