Photo Camino

Something I've been meaning to do for some time – I've begun writing a book on photography on the Camino.

It's a practical guide called Photo Camino.

It will discuss the particular challenges facing anyone wishing to take photos on the Camino.

The book will give advice on what kind of camera to take, how best to handle issues such as weather, weight and bulk, what kind of lenses to take, protection of gear and images, power management, backup and workflow, security and theft, and how to maximise photographic opportunities on the Camino.

I don't think it will take me long to write this book. Now having walked two Caminos I have a very good understanding of the unique problems facing a photographer.

I think there's a need for a book like this. And I humbly believe I'm suitably qualified to write it.

I'll let you all know how I go!

  1. Looking forward to your instructional book. Not sure if I would want to carry a bigger camera, but one never knows. Will you do it as an e-book? Ingrid


    • Hi Ingrid – yes, it will be an e-book. And as you say, instructional. A guide. It won’t be very long either… won’t take me long. Not a priority by any means. I’ll just chip away at it bit by bit. My focus is on the film…


    • Hi Kathryn –

      Not sure, but it’s something I’ve been meaning to do for a while, and I can chip away a little bit each day. It’s a bit like walking the Camino really. Small steps. And if you keep taking small steps for long enough, eventually you find that you’ve crossed the breadth of a country. Same with a book. Do a little bit each day, after a few months you’ve got a manuscript!


  2. Hi Bill – I’m looking forward to the book. My husband Steve is really interested in photography and I know that he’ll really enjoy the book, and for me, the chapter on iPhone photography will be GREAT. I love using the camera on the iPhone – it’s my favourite bit of kit on the phone.
    Cheers – Jenny
