At last The Book is released!

If you only buy one photography book this year make sure its the Ephotozine Guide to Great Photography, it is just the most inspiring photography book I have ever read. Beautifully designed and illustrated with a mass of fantastic photos (and a few of mine). It would make an ideal Christmas present for anyone interested in taking better photographs.

P.s. I'm not just saying that because it has some of my pictures in it.
