Case Studies

Katherine Edden Photography - Furry ones portfolio Photography Portfolio

Katherine Eden is a Photographer and Fine Artist based in Somerset with a passion for portraits, candid and staged, people or animals. An animal lover she adores horses; riding them, caring for them, drawing them and now photographing them. ‘Furry ones Portfolio’ was a “pet” project to showcase furry portraits from over the past couple of years.

The small landscape, lustre photographic paper layflat photobook was chosen for the good quality and to ensure no impact is lost from the photographs. A lot of acre and attention was given to the cover design, as the full wrap around cover means the cover can be opened up reveal more of the image.

A mix of layout styles was used in the design of the content pages to add to the spontaneous, eclectic photography style of the images. The overall effect is an energetic, impactful photobook that show the love and passion of the Author for the subject matter.

Restoring Caledonia Photography

Josh Raper is a Photography student focusing on the natural world and conservation stories within it. He founded ‘Global Conservation Media’ in 2015, a body of work featuring multi-media conservation, adventure and wildlife stories.

Restoring Caledonia is a visually informative book with little writing, letting the narrative within the images tell the story accompanied by short descriptive captions.

Inspired by photography books such as Spirit Bear by Paul Nicklen, the 2020 vision project, and Pacific Wild by Ian Mcallister, all square format book ideal for a balanced layout of both informative text and stunning imagery that do most of the talking.

The Heart of Borneo Photography

Ferne Glannan-MacRae is a Cornwall based Graphic Designer working for a Marine advertising company. Having studied Marine and Natural history Photography and Authorial Practice Illustration, her interests include wildlife photography and environmental charity work.

‘The Heart of Borneo’ is a collection of images taken for the Heart of Borneo charity in order to create a data base of species and promote awareness.

The portrait format was chosen to replicate a notebook style, reminiscent of that used during her time in the rainforest. The classic paper used offered the diversity of a matt shine that works well for emphasising photographs and for readability of text.
