How to: Make your own accordion portfolio book

Today I’d like to guide you trough the process of making a bespoke accordion portfolio book, using standard 4×6 inch prints. Firstly, you need to settle on a project, which in my case is a new portfolio for 2013 consisting of old and new work, sequenced together for an off kilter and hopefully poetic flow.

Night in to Day Photography

I was introduced to this style of photography by one of our customers; unfortunately I can’t remember his name, who had taken some excellent photographs using this method. I love the idea of this style of photography and it really inspired me. So with this in mind, I decided to try my hand, and hopefully inspire others as well.

Favourite Locations: Crosby Beach

If you’re planning some time at the beach with your camera, then a sandy stretch adjacent to Liverpool and the Mersey estuary may not immediately come to mind. However think again – this long, straight beach is home to Antony Gormley’s “Another Place” installation – 100 iron life size statues cast in his own image, placed at intervals along the beach

Favourite Locations: Dungeness

Dungeness is an intriguing place unlike anywhere else I have ever been in the UK. The vast shingle landscape is dominated by two nuclear power stations. However in their shadow you’ll find, amongst other things, a RSPB nature reserve, a small airport, the world’s smallest public railway, wartime acoustic mirrors and two lighthouses.

Long Exposures with an NDx1000 Filter

Yes, I imagine there are a handful of industrial photographers in this world who wish to take photographs of the inside of blast furnaces and/or incinerators from time to time, but there are many more “normal” photographers who wish to use long-exposure techniques for artistic and creative purposes. For these photographers, the solution is the NDx1000 filter.
