New eBook: Making The Print – A Masterclass

In Craft & Vision, e-books by David16 Comments

I’m on the great plains of the Maasai Mara in Kenya right now. In the last year I’ve created photographs all over the world, and more than ever can’t wait to return to Vancouver at the end of 2012 and print my work.
