Uber Prints

Blakeney Harbour, Norfolk, UK

With the spring sunshine comes the realisation that i have to get some ideas put together for two projects this summer. Although I have quite a bit of time before Solo Photo Book Month starts again this year, I really do need to have a good think about how much of a challenge I want to give myself this year.

Last year I used my iPhone to take the photographs for the book submission but this year it'll be shot on film - probably medium format 6x6 black and white. This will add a substantial amount of time and effort to creating the book but I need to challenge myself more this year. As for book subject matter, i have no idea as of yet. One thing has been decided upon and that is that this year's book will be made available in print form.

My Norfolk project returns this year to help me retain some of my sanity. I did miss it greatly last year but the break from shooting was necessary. Again i need to find an angle to attack the project in a new and fresh way. As many of you know , the Norfolk project is a long term/until death photo project of mine roughly based on photographer John Tordai's fabulous 1992 Northumberland photography book that documented the northern English county.

In January, along with a new main website design, i launched yet another photography blog to feature my landscape photography. The Photography Print Shop is part photo print shop and part landscape photography blog. Work is added weekly that can be purchased as a standard photographic print or as a uber high quality limited edition Giclée digital archive print using the excellent Fotomoto e-commerce engine.
