Donald Ford Images - Scotland's golf and landscape photographer

Photo Books are almost ready.....

While August conspired to throw up even more unhelpful weather around Scotland than did July, there was frenetic activity here in the office as the final touches were applied to the first in a new series of beautifully bound, A4 size Photo books which I am about to launch via the website. The idea came about purely as a consequence of digital printing now allowing the publication ( at affordable cost ) of short print runs where, previously, only quantities of 1000 or more units could be considered suitable for litho machines. Now, having identified a varied selection of images from both my Scottish landscape AND golf portfolios, a series of six or eight Photo books will be available through the website ( Books and calendars on the menu bar ). The book titles will all be prefixed by " A Photographic Celebration......" and the first to appear will be of the county of Angus, with some seventy lovely photographs of "Scotland's Birthplace". Stand by for the details and sample pages to be uploaded to the website! Second off the printing press will be a similar celebration of Aberdeenshire. Often described as "Scotland in miniature", the region's glorious landscape and coastal treasures will be reflected in a further selection of sixty-plus photographs, a sample of which will again be displayed on the website when this edition is ready and in stock. 

Photographically, Scotland's weather desperately needs to waken up its ideas! There are only SO many rain clouds, black skies and rainbows which the photographer can publish and - believe me - there have been precious few blue skies or glorious dawns over the past eight weeks or so! In fact, it is almost scary that autumn is only a few weeks away; some foliage ( chestnut trees are ALWAYS first ) is already showing the early stages of golds and browns despite the absence so far of any indications that cool, frosty nights are just around the corner. The months seem to have disappeared in a flash - or is this just ANOTHER sign of age creeping up?? Irrespective, have cameras at the ready for, arguably, Scotland's most spectacular season......it's just around the corner.
