In October 2015, I published my highly acclaimed photography manual, From Snapshot to Hotshot.
This is the book I wish I had when I was studying photography. From Snapshot to Hotshot teaches you everything you need to know about photography, and nothing you do not. If you’ve never picked up a camera in your life, or if you are just looking for a way to get better, this is the book for you.
Consisting of sixty practical lessons spanning 236 pages, From Snapshot to Hotshot does not teach “tips and tricks” (Apart from three examples in the back of the book as a bit of fun), but teaches principles instead. My intention with this book is to help you understand what photography is, how a camera works, and how to fully get to grips with the thinking behind photography in order to make you a better photographer.
“Anyone can follow a recipe. This book teaches you how to cook.”
This book is available for download as a PDF eBook, right here right now. (Edit: uh, sorry, it is not – my website went belly up and I’m busy re-setting everything up – if you want the book, please contact me!)
