I’m fascinated by our relationship to the creative process, and I’ve been writing about it for many years now on my blog. I’ve collated my best entries from the past few years, and fine-tuned them for inclusion in this e-Book.
The text is not a ‘how to’, nor a ‘technically focussed’ set of writings. Instead this e-book brings together many of my thought processes, challenges and aspirations in an attempt to pin down the elusive nature of what creativity actually is.

I’ve been making photographs for over twenty years now, and during that time I have found the creative process to be an elusive thing to describe. How do we define something which at its heart is free-form?
Creativity should know no boundaries, should have no rules. The results, however they are gained, should speak for themselves.
But how should one describe the creative process? Despite thinking that it is near impossible to do so, I think describing one’s own motivations, thoughts and feelings towards what it is that they do, goes a long way towards trying to pin down what creativity is.
I’ve put together a small e-book of just over one hundred pages, where I’ve culled my favourite creativity related entries from my blog. I often consider this blog a journal of some kind, a way of sorting out my ideas, of figuring out what it is that I just did, and why I did it.
There have been some minor changes to some of the entries to make the english more correct. A few posts have been almost totally re-written in an attempt to gain clarity. It seems that not all my blog posts are as lucid as I’d like them to be.
I hope, if you choose to buy this e-book, that you can appreciate that it is often hard to describe what one is trying to describe. Especially when it is about the nature of creativity.
