David Plummer is an exceptionally talented, passionate, and highly respected wildlife photographer and conservationist. He is also one of our closest friends.
On Thursday 7th September David's book '7 Years Of Camera Shake' will be published and available to buy in bookshops nationwide and online. David is donating 50% of his profits from the book to support research at leading UK charity Parkinson's UK.
Here is how Waterstones describe David's book:
'In 2009, wildlife expert, conservationist and photographer David Plummer was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Rather than let it defeat him, he was galvanised to grab life by the horns and achieve the perfect wildlife shot. Over the next seven years, he did much more than that. The result is this breathtaking collection of over 200 of his best and favourite photographs of exotic and wild animals in their natural habitats. To capture them, David travelled to some of the most remote and stunning locations across the world, from Africa to India to the Galapagos Islands and back to his native England. 7 Years of Camera Shake showcases seven years of immersive and illuminating photography: of predators on the prowl, of prey in the clutches of death, of the inexplicable synchronisation of nature, of the beautiful relationship between mother and child, and much, much more. Plummer's work has been featured in wildlife publications and national and international press, and now the work he has produced since his diagnosis is showcased here, accompanied by his thoughts and anecdotes on how he achieved each perfect shot.'
Not only will Vinyl Revolution be hosting David's launch party but we will also be hosting an afternoon and evening book signing event during which he will present some of his images and talk about the making of the book.
The book signing will be on TUESDAY 12TH SEPTEMBER. David will be meeting our customers and signing copies of his book (available to buy in the shop for £25) from 4pm. At 6.30pm he will provide a short talk and then continue signing books until 8pm. It's going to be a great event. Don't miss it!
