Over the past 2 years I have been working on bringing my photographs and experiences on expeditions into books.
The first is SOLO Explorer which taps into how you leave your world behind to follow your own true passion. It’s not just about the easy route you think your going to take but the but the hard route that becomes the reality – the constant negativity that try’s to prevent you from reaching your goals and how you can over come these obstacles and remain sane at the same time.
The second book is a photographic journey called Rock and Ice – it’s not just focused on the physical side of expeditions but also the people you meet and the beauty of the areas we travel through.
The co-author on these projects is Tony Gray from https://www.wordsbydesign.online – we are aiming for both books to be completed by the middle of this year and they will be onsale in shops in the uk and online through my own website / social media platforms.
Putting these together has been really cathartic – I never thought I had a story in me which might sound strange through the adventures that I’ve been on but its not always about what you have done that makes a good book but how its written. I’ve been honest and quite graphic at times – but I’m happy with the results.
The real issue has been how do you choose the top 200 photographs out of 20,000 plus.
