The Plus One Collection 2012 Book Has Arrived!

Wow i mean WOW! What a book.

I was so excited to see this book, i was frozen on every page, that's how good it is. Stopping, staring and absorbing each image. This is how Photographs are meant to be viewed in print not on a screen.  It was a refreshing feeling not to Like, Comment or +1 an image. Not that there is anything wrong with it and i welcome them myself on social media and gives you a general overview of how others see your creation.

We can't all afford to print every photograph, print a book or exhibit but i urge others to make sure they try an do this as often as they can or afford, it's a great feeling when you can see and feel your image.

More on the book, it's thick, heavy and lots of images which is great. It's divided into colour images at the beginning of the book and the black and white images towards the end with similar themes on each page or spread, so the design is well thought out.

The book and project is great and can't wait for the 2013 version.

The book will go on sale to the public shortly.


Plus One Collection 2012 Book

I'm proud to say that i am participating in this years Plus One Collection 2012 Book Why am i proud, well this is one of the first charitable projects i have been involved with combining my new passion for Photography and outlook on life. I'm more than happy to submit my image to help raise money for charity. Hopefully other projects will come up later i can help with and involve my images or my photography skills.

The project is based on getting together Photographers around the world who are on Google's social media network Google+ to submit their best images of 2012 to be published in the Plus One Collection Book.

The aim is to raise money through Indiegogo for The Kilgoris Project. The part we help with is to put cameras in the Kenyan Maasai kids' hands to document their surroundings. Pictures of the kids can be seen here  

I'd like to thank everyone involved especially Ivan Makarov, Andy Lee and the other photographers who made it possible to create.

See you over on Google+


Here is the image i submitted. It's The Skillion based at Terrigal on the New South Wales Central Coast, Australia.
