Ammonite Press (an imprint of the Guild of Master Craftsmen)
Writing and illustrating a range of books either about general photographic techniques (the Understanding and Mastering series of books) or about specific camera models (the Expanded Guide series). As David uses Canon equipment he has mainly written about Canon cameras such as the EOS 5D MK III and PowerShot G15 for Ammonite. However, he has also written about Sony cameras and cameras in the 4/3s and Micro 4/3s range. The books are liberally illustrated with David’s examples of David’s photography.
‘Over the last few years, I have had great pleasure of commissioning David to write more than a dozen books in our Expanded Guides series, which give in-depth information on how to get the best from the latest digital SLR and compact cameras from manufacturers such as Canon, Sony and Leica. He has also written half a dozen titles in our photographic techniques series, including Digital Black & White Photography, Understanding HDR Photography and Night & Low Light Photography – informative books that demonstrate his versatility and creativity. David is thoroughly professional and meticulous in his approach to his writing – and the sumptuous images he shoots to illustrate his books – and he writes in an engaging style that, while approachable, is also authoritative. David is a rarity: an excellent writer and outstanding photographer rolled into one.’
