I’ve heard a rumour that my newest—and possibly prettiest—book, Social Photography is now on sale in the US! Naturally I’m incredibly biased (although my father probably wins the prize for most enthusiastic cheerleader), but I am very proud of it. In a nutshell, it’s a guide to making the most out of your smartphone, from […]View Post book, facebook, image, Instagram, social, social photography, twitter, US
