GREETINGS CARDS | The image left, is one of three pictures selected for part of the Heart of a Garden range of greetings cards produced by Art Eco Designs. This particular card is sold in support of The Woodland Trust. View the full range of greetings cards and other stationery products on the The Heart of a Garden website.

Book Cover
BOOK COVER | A much photographed hill in west Dorset (Colmer's Hill), shot by me, forms the main background image for the cover of a book set during World War I recently published in the Czech Republic. The cover is actually a composite of 5 or 6 images. I'm not sure if it's a bestseller in the Czech Republic, but I doubt I'll ever see it on sale in Waterstones. More recently I have been shooting the odd image specifically with book cover use in mind, and have had one image shortlisted (but not selected) by a UK publisher. Shooting for book covers means I need to work in a slightly different way, and I have much to learn. Still, it'll be interesting to try and master something new.
