Frozen in Time – A photographic tribute to the sport of Figure Skating

I am pleased to announce the publication of my latest book (under the EGB Books UK label) – “Frozen in Time”.

This has been produced as a photographic tribute to the sport of Figure Skating – one of the sports I have covered extensively during my career. The book looks at the different competitive disciplines of the sport and also features its inherent qualities and aspects of artistry and teamwork. The intention has been to create an original book that takes a different look at the sport. It is a large format book (12″ x 12″), printed on high quality photo paper, with 108 pages and 256 colour images – a true collector’s item and souvenir for all who love the sport. Many of the current generation of top international skaters are featured as well as images of those competing in the sport for leisure and recreation. The words of skaters and coaches are used as quotes and these give an added significance to the themes of the photo spreads.

The link for the printed book is below;
