This is my first photography end of year bulletin which I hope you will find interesting, but if not, just respond to it saying something like ‘no thanks’ and I will remove you from my list.
The two biggest events for me during the year were the publication by Oxbow Books Ltd. of North Downs Landscapes in May, and Norfolk Landscapes in October. If you bought either of them, thank you very much indeed, and if you have any comments or can do an online review, that would be a great help. (My books can be reviewed on my web site or on Amazon.com.) I’m told that they are selling quite well and to be sure, all comments and reviews so far have been very positive.
I am working on Yorkshire Landscapes, scheduled for Spring 2016, but the weather this year has been appalling and, though I have most of the images I need, it is still holding me up. By the way, you can read about the challenges in getting these on my new blog called ‘What It Takes To Take A Pic.‘
Photographic prints, framed or just mounted, have been popular and the quality of printing being produced by my printer is really amazing: very true and beautifully balanced. He can produce high quality paper or canvas prints to any size and shape and I can provide quotations if you let me know what you would like.
As an end of year offer, a copy of the pocket version of Chiltern Landscapes (RRP £4.99) will be delivered free of charge along with any print ordered up to the end of January.
I have produced two lots of greetings cards during this year, which have gone down very well (see the home page of my web site www.doug-kennedy.com). These can be ordered by email and paid for by card through Paypal (I send you a Paypal invoice and your card details are entered onto their web site which is very secure). My current favourite is the one of frosted leaves.
Thank you very much for buying my books and prints and for your encouragement. Have a very Merry Chistmas and a Happy New Year,
