Behind the Picture

Inside stories of the creation of an image

Behind the Picture

Have you ever looked at an image in a book or magazine and thought to yourself, I would love to take a picture like that, but how did they take it? How did they get those colours, that composition, that atmosphere? Maybe your images don’t quite come out like you imagine they would, but you would love to learn how to achieve those similar results. If these words sound familiar, then this book aims to show you how a successful image is created.

The book describes the thought process behind the pictures. It looks at how I made the most of the location and subject, the composition, light, filters used and gives before and after pictures for comparison.


The book covers a wide range of locations including:

  • Castlerigg Stone Circle, Lake District
  • Paris, France
  • Bedruthan Steps, Cornwall
  • Eilean Donan Castle, Scotland
  • Whitby, North Yorkshire
  • Angel of the North, Gateshead
  • Selfridges Building., Birmingham


Each picture is broken down into detail and analyzed. Learn techniques that can apply to similar locations and subjects. Discover how to improve your images. How to get the best from a chosen location and how a successful image is made.
