Ammonite Press

Over the last few years, I have had the great pleasure of commissioning David to write more than a dozen books in our Expanded Guides series [as well as] 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.
