Finally, the Guyana book is finished...!  At the moment it's out there on Blurb in two versions, and two sizes.  I'm hoping that next year I can get it onto Amazon to make it a bit easier to find, and maybe a bit cheaper too.  For the moment though, that's where it's at!

Explore Guyana 2013: The article and the photos are absolutely beautiful. Sadly, the book isn't out to the public until next year but I got one of the first copies =D

Living in Aishalton for two years must have been a wonderful experience. I was there for the Heritage last year.

Congratulations on your award for the Lightning at Kaieteur Falls photo !

Hello James,
I want to thank you for the labour, and by the final result, love of this masterpiece of my birthplace. I don't want to waffle on since I've mentioned my thoughts in a favourite already. My family left Guyana when I was five years old and moved to Montreal, Canada. Guyana has only been a name on my passport which gets funny looks when I travelled through parts of Western Europe. I've returned once as a teenager and have never had an emotional connection to my birthplace. Your book has kindled a little fire in me. I will purchase it and share it with family, friends and strangers who ask where is this country, never heard of it.
My only regret is my beloved Mom never lived long enough to see your book. She passed away three months ago from her second round with cancer. Your book would have brought joy to her heart and tears to her eyes. I will inform as many people in the Guyanese community that I know of your book and hopefully they'll appreciate your fine work as much as I do. Thank you. Cheers.

Hi James,

Do people need to get permission from you before using your photos? I have seen many of your images (like this one: [link] on this facebook page :

but none are credited to you. This page is also a tour operator therefore using your images for profit. Just thought i'd bring it to your attention.

Thanks - I never did get to see a copy, but I hear that some of them printed up ok! Hope you're enjoying seeing some of the other images of your homeland - and maybe leafing through the book on Blurb.com!

Hi, I just stumbled across your photos of Guyana and they are amazing! Is it possible to buy prints of pictures on your blog that are not tagged for sale? For example, Guyana 2009 - Day 60. Abigail

Hi Abigail,

Sure - It's no problem to request specific images as prints. At the moment a lot of the Guyana pictures are early edits done on a laptop, so colour balance isn't all I'd like it to be. As I reprocess on a decent balanced monitor I plan to upload more available for print. I've re-processed a massive amount already for my book - now available at Blurb - so these are all ready for upload. Just need to find the time!

I'll get Day 60 up first though!

James

Thanks Krishna... Yeah - I got knock down bad!

Guyana sure is beautiful and awesome, but hot and hard work too! I travelled quite a lot whilst there - more than most Guyanese can even dream of - and I was so lucky to get to Kaieteur... That is a place everyone from Guyana should get to see at least once in their life.

Check out my Guyana book [link] if you get chance - I'm leaving it on full preview for a week or so, so you can see all the pages on a full screen preview. Enjoy!
