Book photography for a web shop

Matthew Maran’s Hampstead Heath

I have known photographer Matthew Maran for years, we actually went to school together so I could have filled this blog post with embarrassing photos of us both. However, thankfully his new book is so beautiful it makes a lot more sense to showcase that instead.

Hampstead Heath (London's Countryside) is the latest book from wildlife photographer Matthew Maran

After spending years traveling the world as a wildlife photographer, Matt decided to focus (no pun intended) on the homegrown wildlife at Hampstead Heath. Realising that London has it's own unique wildlife to explore.

Matt got in touch as he needed still life book photography for his web shop launch. It was a real pleasure to get a sneak peek of the book ahead of the gallery launch which was last weekend. The book is available here: http://www.matthewmaranshop.com/product/hampstead-heath-london-s-countryside it really is well worth a look.

Matt also brought along some of his prints to photograph and wanted me to bring out the detail on his monkey stamp which is used to authenticate the prints.
