Travel Book @ Blurb

I AM A MEMBER OF BLURB but I havent created my own photo book. Alot of aspiring photographers are taking advantage of the site's features to create, publish and sell their books. Looking at these albums, it is very inspiring to have one!

Author's Note: A photographic study of Egypt, from ancient monuments to fields of cabbages, from temples to modern streetlife. Text includes a mixture of how the shots came about or simple comments on the locations. I hope you will find it entertaining as well as informative. Most of all I would like you to feel, as you turn the pages, either nostalgia for a country you may already know and love, or a real need to visit Egypt for the first time.

About the Photographer: MIKE SHEPHERD left the Art College for a career in advertising as an Art Director. Working with another photographer for an album cover shoot was the beginning of his model making, set building, and special effects career. His clients include Paul McCartney, 10cc, Smirnoff, JCB and Dupont. His favourite stint was Playdoh modelling for Hasbro, who also asked him to be involved to design and produce a sculpture for the 'Save the Children Festival of Trees' in London.' For additional info about Mike, you can click the link HERE.

Im also featuring another Blurbarian - Ken S. who happened to be a Filipino. He already published two books: Turkey and India - featuring his amazing visits to these countries. Enjoy his photos and maybe you will be inspired to explore other places and share it with us thru Blurb.
