About the Book
A visit to the modern city of Shanghai, a cruise down the Yangtze River from Yichang to Chongqing, pandas in Chengdu, the mind blowing Terracotta Warriors in Xi'an finished off with a walk along the Great Wall and a visit to the Forbidden City in Beijing. All this and much more over a two week period in August 2009 left us with so many memories of this fascinating country and the Chinese people. This photobook attempts to capture some of those memories.
In response to feedback, I have produced a modified version of this book ("China in Two Weeks," available in Standard Landscape format, 10"x8") in which the personal family photos have been removed and the book reformatted accordingly: (http://www.blurb.com/my/book/detail/1600600)

I'm a documentary wedding photographer. I spend my time chasing and capturing memories for happy people on one of the most important days of their lives. It doesn't get much better than that! I've been passionate about many things throughout my life - my family, my work as a scientist and my geeky hobbies. But I've been a photographer all my life. Over time, I realised that I really love to photograph people so it was an easy decision to become a full-time documentary wedding photographer. My unobtrusive and sensitive style lends itself to photographing people in a natural way. I love capturing those special moments in time that will become someone else's memories - photographs that will allow them to recapture the emotion of that precise moment in time. If you would like me to help you to chase and capture those special moments in your life and have fun while we do it then please get in touch with me for an informal chat and let's see where it takes us!
