I think that it’s great when we can still feel a child-like excitement now & again. Today was such an occasion when I met my publisher in Oxford and finally put hands on one of a few pre-production versions of the book, Winning Images with Any Underwater Camera. It’s such a great moment to see the hard work of over 2 years presented so professionally by the publisher. Thank you Alex Gibson!
Two copies of the book already went out to the UK dive magazines that will lead the initial book reviews and the other 2 copies are being used for publicity leading up to the book launch.
On that latter score, please do come along to the book launch if your schedule allows. It is an open invitation to anybody who is interested in underwater photography generally and photographic composition specifically. The event will start at 6:30 pm on Wednesday 11th June with drinks leading to a 7:30 pm opening address by Alex Mustard. I’ll follow up with a short pitch about the book and my humble aspirations for it. The venue will be Ocean Leisure Cameras, right next door to Embankment tube station. I would just love to see you there!
Over the next few weeks I will run some articles here on why I hope that this book will be an important contribution to the body of knowledge about underwater photography.
all the best, Paul
