Examples of images in the book on Flickr

Good links for examples of my photography and photo-style. (Please note, I'm keeping the images on Flickr to a minimum as to preserve the surprise / freshness of the book when it's printed! And also... I take new photos every single day. The final 100 will be chosen the day before I mail the Book Proof off!

In the last couple of years I've taken over 6,000 photos with my iphone! I've also traveled to 3 continents and to over 50 different locations in the UK. Whilst the majority of professional photographers might look down on the Iphone as an amateur tool, I've found that using the Hipstamatic App produces more effective and aesthetically pleasing images than standard photography. It has allowed me to capture images as I'd like to see the world, rather than how it is... all on a mobile with no post-processing or editing.

The unpredictability of Double-Exposure photos has proved to be as challenging as it is amazing, and whilst my SLR photos gain me freelance work, nothing has piqued people's interest like Double-Exposure. The only question I ever hear is "Wow, That looks awesome. how did you do that?"

The story about traveling to forget, whilst true, isn't the real motive or cause for my experimental photography. I'm not a love-lorn depressive with a photo addiction... I have a great love for life, architecture, urban exploring and graffiti, and one of the key elements to all of these is the practice of taking photos.

I'd like to print 500 Hardback books to retail to small, niche bookstores and to be able to give to people to inspire them. I have an extensive collection of other photographers and designers works and whenever I feel uncreative or I'm running low on inspiration I like to flick through different zines or books and look for ideas to further with my own work... and I'd like my photographs to do the same for other people!

The video has been shot using my iphone to compliment the nature of the book, whilst I was exploring abandoned buildings. I'd like to say a quick thankyou to friend & fellow hometown resident Adam Doe for allowing me to use his track "Empire". The one thing our small town is notorious for are the amount of talented people that are overlooked.
You can find him and other music created by him on Soundcloud or Facebook

Examples of some of the printer T-shirts offered as a Reward! Emails with a catalog of images available to choose from and a size chart will be sent after the funding is completed. (also, the font is set to change to compliment the design better)

I'm also offering a T-shirt I designed up as a reward. Whilst not directly linked to the project, it's something from me to you to say thankyou for your pledge! These (like the Choose-Your-Own-Print tees will be custom labeled, and you will receive a custom-designed postcard with your Tee's number.

A further tier offers the same design with gold ink replacing the gold colour of the crown, this is an additional printing process and so the tee's are limited to a short & exclusive run.

Risks and challenges

The only real issue I face is the translation from digital to print... I shoot all photos at a high resolution (between 1MB & 3MB) and so far, up-scaling the images has been fine. As I haven't has any of them professionally printed, I can't be 100% certain that 20cm X 20cm will work, and therefore the book might have to be 14cm X 14cm, although this is a very slim chance, as they display digitally at 20cm and printing should be no different.

    This might sound ridiculous, but gaining access to derelict buildings whilst not breaking the law and observing safety precautions takes a seasoned pro. I've accessed over 100 buildings in the last 8 years.
