I’m pleased to announce that my latest book “Topaz Detail for Landscape Photographers” has been published on amazon. The book is very much in the style of my previous releases. It’s concise (around 170 pages), well illustrated (130 screenshots) and geared to helping you understand how to use Topaz Detail effectively. The book covers the entire program and includes three examples which illustrate how you can use Topaz Detail to create quite dramatic improvements to your photography.

You can download the high resolution example images from my Lenscraft website allowing you to follow along with the book. In the Members Area of Lenscraft you will also find supporting videos which you can view without buying the book. And for anyone who hasn’t already purchased Topaz Detail there is a discount coupon code to be used when making a purchase (or you can download a 30 day trial version from the Topaz Labs website). In all, this is a comprehensive package covering a very useful piece of software.

The book is available from amazon priced USD3.99, GBP2.99 or similar in your local currency. Please note that prices may vary slightly due to recently introduced tax rules. For customers in the US and UK the links to the book are shown below.

Latest Book Published

Beginning Photogrpahy the Right Way: Taking Control of the Camera
Beginning Photogrpahy the Right Way: Taking Control of the Camera

I’m pleased to announce that my new book is now available on amazon. It’s titled “Beginning photography the right way: Taking control of the camera”. I decided to write this book following many conversations with photographers, some quite experienced experience, who really didn’t understand the core skills of camera control.

Whilst they knew about terms such as aperture and shutter speed they didn’t appreciate how these could be used creatively in their work. Typically when shooting landscapes they might stop their aperture down as small as possible and make comments such as this was to maximise image sharpness.

This book tries to set people on the right track with the essential knowledge required to use their cameras in the creative mode and covers the essential camera skills every photographer should learn.

It’s prices at $3.99 on, £2.21 on or the equivalent price on your local amazon site (before taxes). If you’re a Kindle Unlimited subscriber you can read it for free.

Christmas Book Sale

Nik Start to Finish-book

I’m reducing my Nik eBooks in price to either £0.99 each or $0.99 each (depending on which amazon site you use). Now unfortunately the offer is only available on or so if you don’t or can’t buy kindle books from either of these you won’t be able to take advantage – sorry, that’s amazon’s rules not mine.

The sale runs from 1am 19th December to 11pm 21st December. So if you are thinking of adding one of my titles to your library and you use either of these sites, this weekend is a good time to buy.

New Book and Free Book


I’m usually really excited to be announcing a new book launch but recent events have somewhat dulled my enthusiasm. I received the final edit over the weekend and as always my editor has done a great job. I thought about delaying this but then decided I wanted to try to regain some normality. I also had the opportunity to dedicate the book to the memory of my mother.

Despite my subdued mood I am very pleased with the content. I think the book is pretty unique in its approach to developing peoples photography. Having said that I will probably find several hundred people now write to me to say it reminds them of another book.

If you want to take a look here are the links to and You can also search for “The Photographers Coach” on amazon.
