Collaboration with Ross Hoddinott

I imagine most readers of this blog are already familiar with Ross Hoddinott and his photography but for those that aren't, Ross is a very talented photographer who specialises in macro and landscape photography. He is the author of numerous books and regularly features in magazines such as Outdoor Photography.

Ross is currently preparing a new book on Macro and Close-up Photography and I'm pleased to say that he has asked me to contribute to one of the chapters. Ross very much favours the use of natural light in his macro photography but was keen for his chapter on lighting to also discuss the use of flash. I have therefore prepared three 'spreads' for the chapter, one on the general use of flash in macro photography, one on the use of ringflash and twinflash and finally one on the use of outdoor studios (e.g. the Meet Your Neighbours style). A number of my images will also feature.


The book will discuss all aspects of macro and close-up photography and is written in Ross' highly accessible style. It is due out in Autumn and I'm sure I'll do a blog post on it once it is published.
