New book – The Gardens of Japan

Quite unexpectedly, a FedEx van has just made its way into mid-Wales and down our snowy drive to deliver advance copies of our next book, The Gardens of Japan (Frances Lincoln Ltd), though it’s not due out until March 25th. Very pleased, and even more surprised that there were copies of the French co-edition as well, which we knew nothing about (or more likely had forgotten about)The Gardens of Japan

Have a look at Dorian Bowen’s extraordinary minimalist conversion of a traditional Welsh cottage in this month’s World of Interiors (January issue). The story’s called The Slate Wiped Clean, with text by Helena Attlee

An occasional progress report from my wonderful world

Here goes – a new year, a new start etc, etc. Resolutions? Work harder. Shoot more pictures – more to the point, shoot better pictures. Think better of people. Chase my slow-paying clients – you know who you are – and try to keep out of debt. Have more fun. Keep this blog passably up to date. On which note, here is a pic from my last shoot just before Christmas. The client was the wonderfully-named Friends of Friendless Churches, who look after such buildings in the remoter spots of Britain and are bringing out a book later this year.
