PRODUCING BEAUTIFUL BOOKS
Do you need a capable editor to project manage your book, from conception and layout to print and promotion? Do your images need prose that does them justice? Whether it's writing fresh and engaging copy or editing your own words, I can help you to produce a gripping and beautiful read.
POR EL PLANETA 2015 COMMEMORATIVE BOOK
The Por el Planeta photo competition is close to my heart. First, I was invited to advise on its launch – categories, rules, principles and USPs etc. Then, I joined the jury alongside such Nat Geo greats as Paul Nicklen, Brian Skerry and Kathy Moran. Finally, I was asked to produce the commemorative book.
As editor, I was responsible for briefing and advising the design team; securing image details from 100+ photographers; writing exciting captions for every image; commissioning and editing introductory content from the competition owner, Mexico's Televisa TV company, director Cristina Mittermeier, the jury, media partners and the sponsors; securing sign-off from all contributors; and press-passing the book.
The book launched at the Awards Gala in November.
I edited this photography book for renowned photographer Marsel van Oosten about John Varty's vision for saving the tiger from extinction – in South Africa.
