About this project

MY GOAL?

My goal is to produce Bramshott. Walking With Buddy, a collection of landscapes in a unique and beautiful limited edition book.

 Bramshott. Walking With Buddy.

The Grand Canyon, Black Forest or Great Lakes it ain’t. Residing more modestly on the Surrey Hampshire border, lies Bramshott Common, a couple of hundred or so unimposing hectares of birch woodland and open heathland with a character all it’s own.

Following my introduction to ‘Bramshott’ as reluctant walker of the family dog ‘Buddy’ (thanks, Mum), I was struck by it’s tranquil beauty and gained an appreciation of a landscape in a constant state of change, change not effected just by nature, but also by the ceaseless conservation effort undertaken presumably, by a seemingly invisible army of elves when no-one’s around.

With this collection of images, I hope to share and preserve some of the beauty and complexity of the ‘Bramshott’ I have come to know through walking with Buddy. This publication won’t be realised without your help, your contribution is key to it’s reaching fruition.

Self-publishing now offers artists greater outlets than ever before, costs, however, are significant when creating a book of this nature. I have an amazing printer in Format Editions, a genuinely high quality bespoke publishing service helping to make this a beautiful limited edition book. Design and artwork is underway and almost ready, print quotes are in and it just requires scheduling, the hard work is almost done, all I need to do now is raise the funds to pay for printing, binding and finishing.

It’s a unique project and I’m proud of the work, that after close to five years, will (hopefully) now become a beautiful first book and an experience to build upon. Walk with me, get some great rewards for your pledge and become part of an engagement in a constantly-changing environment through the arts. With your help, amazing generosity and support, you will have participated in this beautiful book.

Thank you for your support.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk, naturally, would be not making the funding goal, if I don't reach my goal amount, no funding and after so much time and effort, well…

So, with the bulk of the hard work behind me and the relish of the fine tuning in front of me, it’s now all about the challenge -‘keeping the drive alive’, the more support - the larger the print run and better the quality.

It's all or nothing now, please share this project with your friends, please share it with people who aren't your friends, word of mouth is all.

Every and any contribution is a great one. Thank you again.
