Our latest book is just about ready to be delivered. African Icons (www.africanicons.co.za) is about the 21 (or so) top things and places to visit and see in Africa. We travelled to 22 destinations in 12 months, shooting pictures and movie material, and researching the book. Pat shot movies, I did the stills and long time friend and associate Dave Bristow wrote it. We really pushed limits here: Its a huge book, bound in hand crafted leather, printed on fine, heavy paper and each book is individually signed and personalised by the three of us.
But movies? In a book? Well, yes…. Each chapter opener contains a QR Code and all you need to do is scan this with a smart phone or tablet and you’ll be taken to the video supporting the chapter. No worries if you don’t have a smart device, you can see them online. Simply go to the icons list and select the icon that interests you. Read some of the text, look at some of the pix and enjoy the movie.
We had a bunch of fun on the shoot for the book. It was exhausting. Frustrating, sometimes… But what an experience!!! 21 of Africa’s best… Really!
Have a look at some of the behind the scenes stuff and be sure to order the book on the “early bird” special.
