Available in the shops for £64.99, the Basics Photography box set is available at a massive 30% discount online at £45.49 through the Fairchild/Bloomsbury website.

Lighting_Fr_2nd_Ed005 Comp_French_2nd_Ed001The co-edition option for my books Basics Photography: Composition and Lighting has been taken by Pyramyd of Paris. The French language editions of these two best-selling titles are now at the heart of a new Creative Photography series as books 2 and 3 respectively. Les Essentiels Photographie Créative Composition Visuelle and Éclairage were published this month with the ISBNs (978-2-35017-312-2 and 978-2-35017-313-9).

Lightin_China_2nd_Ed001Just received my copy of Lighting 摄影用光 2版 Basics Photography: Lighting 2nd Edition in Chinese published this month by the China Youth Press with the ISBN 978-7-5153-2020-5. Surprised though pleased to see me own image ‘Barnstorm’ used on the cover in place of Frank Wartenberg’s ‘Melanie’. First edition imagery has come up crisp and fresh with some excellent new imagery looking great on the page. Again thanks to everyone who contributed – I’m immensely proud to have this book available to such a large readership.

486062_10151372345848370_65394769_nBookman has announced its best selling Art & Design titles for 2012 in Brazil with the Portuguese language edition of Basics Photography: Lighting coming in at number 8 – Fotografia Básica: Iluminação ISBN 978-8577807142. Not bad for a book first published in English 6 years ago. I know Bookman is already selling the 2nd Edition of Basics Photography: Composition so I hope the new edition of Lighting does as well for them in Portuguese as the 1st.

Just arrived with me are early copies of the 2nd Edition of Basics Photography: Lighting (ISBN 978 2 940411 95 5) which is published this Thursday 28 February by Bloomsbury under the recently acquired ava imprint. This is my first look at the printed version – material from the 1st edition has come up crisp and fresh with some excellent new imagery looking great on the page. Thanks to all who contributed. Now looking forward to seeing this and Basics Photography: Composition 2nd Edition together in the book stores.
