Welcome to 2016 to an all-new Mother Nature!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome to 2016 on Mother Nature!!!!!!!!!! Now that 2015 has finally closed its doors, Mother Nature got the much-needed redesign it truly deserves, and the colours of Mother Nature have finally been changed to accommodate for a maturer appearance, given that Mother Nature has now evolved into more of a presentable appearance.

Over the course of the next few weeks, I’ll be doing a lot of housekeeping, as I’ll be taking down some articles and some pictures to free up the website space for Mother Nature. This news comes as I want to get back to my roots fully of doing more photography articles. However, all is not lost though, because any articles I do take down will have their spaces filled with some new articles, as I want Mother Nature to focus more on photography, but also on certain interests, as I don’t want to talk too much about one thing, knowing full well that the whole idea of this website is to be a photography site.

Also, a Revised Edition of my third book: “My Journey Through a Lens” will be released soon, in accordance to the articles I take down, as I’ll be doing some changes to the third book, by taking some bits out that I won’t be keeping in, but will also be filling those spaces in as well, just like what I’ll be doing with the articles that I’ll be taking down. Please don’t worry too much though about the third book, as some much-needed corrections need to be done. The book is okay the way it is, but I feel it would be fair if I actually did some corrections to the book, so that you get more of a chance of reading it a lot better.

In light of the housekeeping I’ve been doing, I have done away with The Mix of 2015 Spotify Playlist, and just like I did last year, I have now added The Mix of 2016 Spotify Playlist to Mother Nature.

Also, with regards to the website’s layout, some tidying is required, which means some things are being removed or re-worked, and with regards to the tabs, I will be making sure to remove and re-add certain tabs so that there is an easier way for you all to get to the desired article you want to view.

This year is going to be about photography, de-cluttering and making things better, as I want to make sure Mother Nature has an independent and more grown-up look.

To end the first article of 2016 on a high note, I bring fantastic news, after doing a lot of editing work with making sure the new look was ready, I’ve made some wallpapers that will work on any device of your choice, whether it would be a tablet device, a smartphone, a computer or a laptop. All of them are available now for free download below.

To kick 2016 off with a bang, I want to say to you all:

Welcome to 2016 on Mother Nature!!!!!!!!!!

Monthly Roundup: July 2015

To round off what has been an exciting, eventful, energetic and incredible month, I will now take a look back on the articles that have been published over the course of this month.

1.7.2015 – I welcomed you all back to Mother Nature for what would be a scorching hot July. This month was set to be an energetic and relaxing month, despite the hot weather. I also mentioned that my third book was finally reaching the completion stage, which was a fantastic sign, as I was itching to get the book finished and ready for release.

2.7.2015 – After a year of hard work, studying and revision, I was absolutely pleased to tell all of you that I had officially, as of this day, passed my UAL Level 2 Art & Design Course with a high Merit grade. This news came in light of the 8 units that I had completed and passed, with a Distinction on my research, which had resulted in me getting that high Merit grade for the whole course overall. I was also delighted to tell all of you that I had also received two certificate from Croydon College that day, one of which celebrates the outstanding achievement in terms of my exemplary attendance, while the other had celebrated my outstanding achievement I’ve made in terms of excellent achievement.

3.7.2015 – After 9 months of working on Book #3, I was absolutely pleased to tell you all that: “My Journey Through a Lens” would officially be out on Independence Day at 6:00 PM. The news of this book release finally came, as I had just finished up work on the book that day (and night), which had left me then to just prepare it so that it was officially ready for release the following day.

The book would contain over 400+ pages, and this book was indeed my largest book to date. It was originally going to be released towards the end of May, but because of the fact I had my college studies and revision to worry about, I had to hold off the released of the book to allow myself a lot more time to finish up the book and to also finalise it, so that it would give me a lot more time to work on it.

In terms of this book, some of the book would focus mainly around the photographical work that I have published on Mother Nature, and not only that, but most of the book itself would also focus around my own interests, as well as Croydon College.

4.7.2015 – After 9 months of hard work, effort and designing, My Journey Through a Lens finally became available as of this day. As the book was over 400+ pages long, this book was indeed the largest book I had ever made, which followed up from my previous book: “A Year in Photography”, which was released on the 1st September 2014. In this book, I talked about 6 historical icons, as well as musicians, from Ben Haenow to Madonna, and not only that, but I had also dedicated this book to a small number of people that I mentioned, including those that had passed away most recently. As of this day, you can now officially download my third book: “My Journey Through a Lens”, which is available now under “Free Books“.

9.7.2015 – Spinning back the clock to 1998, Crash Bandicoot: Warped was the 3rd, most popular installment in the series of Crash Bandicoot. Crash Bandicoot: Warped continues from where Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, left off. I wrote this review because I thought it would be good to relive the nostalgic days of gaming, when games were much better compared to some of the games that are around today. Some of the games that are around nowadays tend to leave little to the imagination, especially for those that are younger than the age that is given on the game’s PEGI (Pan-European Game Information) rating. Overall, I think the game is perfect, and it is one of the top-of-the-class games that you just can’t miss. To end this review, I gave the game an overall rating of 10/10.

13.7.2015 – On this day, the world lost a true gaming icon. Satoru Iwata of the worldwide gaming company, Nintendo, sadly passed away on Saturday 11th July 2015 at the age of 55 from cancer, following complications from a bile duct growth. On the same day, Nintendo had issued an official statement, which had documented the news of Satoru Iwata’s passing. To me, this was a massive shock, as I had only just found out the news of his death on the same day, and not only had his death shocked me, but his death had also been a massive shock to the gaming world. To pay tribute to Satoru Iwata, I would take a look back on his life as it unfolded, and the highlights of his career up until his death.

On that final note, thanks so much for an energetic, eventful, relaxing and perfect month, and I’ll see you all in August :-).

P.S. Here is the book in its physical glory :-).

My Journey Through a Lens: Out Now!!!

After just 9 months of hard work, effort and designing, My Journey Through a Lens is finally available, starting from today. With this book being over 400+ pages long, this book is indeed the largest book I have ever made, which follows up from my previous book: “A Year in Photography”, which was released last September.

As this book has pieced together bit-by-bit like a puzzle for the past 9 months, I have talked about certain famous icons, such as Henry VIII, Queen Victoria, Guy Fawkes, Mary | Queen of Scots, Winston Churchill and John Fitzgerald Kennedy, and as well as that, I have also talked about the former president, Nelson Mandela.

In this book, I have also talked about our Croydon lad, Ben Haenow, who was crowned the winner of the X Factor 2014, and not only that, but I have also talked about the Queen of Pop, Madonna, who has been given 3 special mentions in terms of her recently released album, Rebel Heart (released on Monday 9th March 2015), along with her two recently released videos that followed on from her “Living for Love” video, Ghosttown and Bitch I’m Madonna.

There is so much in this book that I have offered, and I feel absolutely glad to have worked hard on this book, as it has given me the strength to continue writing not just for Mother Nature, but also the strength to write a 4th. Now that this book is finally out in the open, I will begin working on Book #4 soon, as I will be making sure to get this third book printed for my own use via the regular printing service, DoxDirect.

It was a lot of effort to work on this book, despite my college studies over the past year, which I have since finished and passed as well, but the most important thing is that I have taken all of the time that I need to design this book, and also format the layout of the pages, so that everything I’ve talked about has pieced together nicely.

I have also dedicated this book to a small number of people, which you’ll see on the back cover of the book, as I have dedicated this book to Ajay Mody, who sadly passed away on the 10th August 2014 after a short illness. I have also dedicated this book to the former Loose Women panellist, Lynda Bellingham, who had also sadly passed away on the 19th October 2014 from Colon Cancer. I have officially dedicated this book to the cricket player, Phillip Hughes, who had sadly passed away on the 27th November 2014, after a sudden accident.

Also, in light of this book, I have dedicated this book to a full-time working regular blogger, and that is Vijay Shah of the Half-Eaten Mind. This book is dedicated to Vijay, as he has guided me “along the way since I began my blogging journey, and is currently updating the Half-Eaten Mind with all new information”. He is a regular blogger who likes to study and keep people up-to-date on the things that he feels may interest everyone else, for example, Vijay recently studied Virtual Vexillology, which was split over 6 articles. If you’re wondering what vexillology is, vexillology is the studying of flags. If you want to at any time, please feel free to head to Vijay’s blog/website: “Half-Eaten Mind: News & Views from a Partially Digested Brain.

To round the book off on a high note, I have decided to celebrate and dedicate this book to our Croydon lad, Ben Haenow, who was crowned the winner of the X Factor 2014, with his debut single: “Something I Need (Originally released by OneRepublic) [Released by Ben in December]” going straight to Number 1. We are absolutely proud of you Ben Haenow!!! Proud to be a Croydonian!!! We will and shall always love you Ben!!!!!!!!!

If you want to download this book now, it can be found in the “Free Books” section on this website.

Enjoy :-)!!!!!!!!!

My Journey Through a Lens: Out Independence Day!!!

After 9 months of working on Book #3, I am absolutely pleased to tell you that: “My Journey Through a Lens” will officially be out tomorrow at 6:00 PM. The news of this book release has finally come, as I have just finished up work on the book, and I am now preparing it so that it is officially ready for release tomorrow evening.

Containing over 400+ pages, this book is indeed my largest book to date. This book was originally going to be released towards the end of May, but due to the fact that I had my college studies and revision to worry about, I had to hold off the release to allow myself a lot more time to finish up the book and also finalise it, so that it would give me more time to work on it.

As I mentioned previously in the previously crafted articles surrounding this book, I have officially included 6 case studies, all of them of which focus on historical icons from the 1500s up to now, and as well as this, I have also included further interests that I am fond of, such as music and photography, as I have talked about our Croydon lad, Ben Haenow (Winner of the X Factor 2014) and also the Queen of Pop, Madonna.

In terms of the book, some of the book focuses mainly around the photographical work that I have published on Mother Nature, and not only that, but most of the book itself also focuses around my own interests, as well as Croydon College.

The front and back covers of the book, which were originally a tad fuzzy in terms of the method I used to use have since been resolved, as I have enlarged the book covers and the text into a much higher quality, which means that when you zoom in, it will be almost completely fuzz-free.

When you get to the end of the book, you can expect to see ten pages of photographs, and then the last page or few will focus on some quotes, some or most of which I have created by myself, but also some by other people, especially of those that are famous.

I am absolutely thrilled to have got to the end of this book, and I can’t wait to release it tomorrow. Once the book becomes available, I will be changing out the download icons in the Free Books section to the cover images of those books that were designed. Don’t worry, these books are always going to be free, including any other future books that I will create, and as always, every book I make will be made available for download via Dropbox.

Until then, I can’t wait to release the book, and please make sure to keep an eye on Mother Nature tomorrow, when the book gets released at 6:00 PM :-).

Monthly Roundup: May 2015

As May rounds off on a good note, I will take a look back on the articles I have published on Mother Nature over the course of this month.

1.5.2015 – I welcomed you all back to Mother Nature for a month that would begin on a relaxing and delightful note. As we have been getting a lot of good weather recently, which is a first in a while, the Whitsun holiday was just around the corner, despite the fact there was a bit of a chilly breeze, which I was fine with. I also announced that there would be a 6th Case Study included in my third book: “My Journey Through a Lens”, given the fact that this book had just recently crossed over the 300-page target mark.

Also on this day, I published an article that focuses on the YouTube Vlogger, Alfie Deyes. As I share my love for YouTube, I wanted to dedicate this article to Alfie Deyes who, over the past few years, has taken to YouTube to upload videos to his YouTube channels, one of which is a gaming channel, while the other two are based around his life, as well as a lot of the funniest things that he has done with his girlfriend, Zoe Sugg (a.k.a. Zoella), and their little pug, Nala, who is so cute.

7.5.2015 – On the 15th April, I took a trip up to the Victoria & Albert Museum (a.k.a. the V&A), as I went with my class to take some photos that I could use to stick into my A3 Sketchbook for my UAL Level 2 Art & Design Course, and because of the fact I took those photos, this gave me the chance to showcase my photos here, and as well as that, I had thought that this trip was a lot more interesting than the previous one, given the fact that this museum had a lot of interesting works, artefacts, and not only that, some, if not, a lot of model designs that focused on certain building elements, such as the Model of the Crystal Palace.

17.5.2015 – This day was an absolute honour for me to talk about the YouTuber, Joey Graceffa. On this day, I published a special music feature article about this YouTuber, as Joey released his music video: “Don’t Wait” to the world on the 16th May, which had instantly blown me away, given the fact that it had so much sentimental value, and also a lot of meaning to it. Just days before Joey Graceffa released his debut memoir: “In Real Life: My Journey to a Pixelated World“, he officially came out as gay to the world. After a few years of speculation from a lot of his fans, he officially announced he was gay before the release of his book. As I support him and everyone else entirely that are gay, bisexual, lesbian and transgender, I wrote this:

I support the LGBT Community entirely because for those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, I believe in equality, LGBT equality and gender equality entirely, no matter what sexuality the person is. I respect all of those who have come out and expressed their sexualities to the world, because everyone in this world deserves to be treated equally, no matter what sexuality they are, and everyone should be respected for who they are and also be treated with the full respect that they deserve. – Alex Smithson

Joey Graceffa’s music video: “Don’t Wait” is available now to watch on YouTube, and if you want to buy the song, it is now available for purchase via the iTunes Store, Google Play, and any other major music outlets that offer the song for purchase. If you want to watch the music video, please make sure to head to the “Related Articles” section below to view the article, or, if you want to get to the video a lot quicker, it can be found on the sidebar under “YouTube Music Favourites“.

31.5.2015 – As it was almost a year since I left school for good, I wanted to take a look back on yesteryear, given that my nostalgia for yesteryear has been really strong. I chose the colours, Purple & Green, as they are how I sense nostalgia, as those two colours combined symbolise my own nostalgic views with reality.

Until then, thanks so much to all of you for a fantastic month, and I’ll see you all in June!!!

The Nostalgia of Yesteryear.

It’s very hard to believe, it was almost one year ago that I finished school, the time just flies by like a shot. If you want me to be honest, I knew my time at primary school had gone quick, but for 5 years to come and go in a flash, it doesn’t feel like I left school.

Almost one year ago, I started my UAL Level 2 Art & Design Course at Croydon College, and in that short space of time, between September & now, it’s just gone like a blip, but the good thing is, I’ve been accepted onto the Level 3 Lens-Based Media Course for September, just weeks before I finish this course. By being accepted on to this course before I even finish the course I am currently on, this will give me the chance to make my photographical skills much better than before.

In all honesty, I hate the thought of the time flying so fast, because before you know it, you’ll get to a certain age and wonder where all of that time went. I just find it very hard to believe that the time flies so fast, but, like they say, time flies when you’re having fun.

In my eyes, I always believe that it’s good to make the most of the time that you’ve got on this mortal coil of a planet that we call Earth, because it’s wise to make the most of the time you’ve got now, and make sure to make something good out of it, because it will never come around ever again.

What I find very hard to believe is how quick the time goes, because you don’t realise just how quick it goes until you’ve finished your primary and secondary school years, and it’s when you move on to the last two years of your secondary education for college that you begin to realise: “Where has 16 years of my life gone?” Although I sometimes think that, I’ve realised that I want to make the most of the time that I still have whilst I’m still in secondary education.

College has been great this past year, and I won’t lie to you, I have enjoyed college. As I prepare to take on the two-year Level 3 Lens-Based Media Course, which begins in September, this will give me the chance to prepare for the kind of materials I am going to need for the course, which will run until 2017.

Croydon College has an extremely large range of opportunities in store, and it is also a fantastic college, because whatever course you choose to take on at this college, they give you all of the help and support that you feel you may need, and the staff at this college are very supportive, and they would do anything to make sure that you get to go in the right direction that you want to go in for the future.

There is one thing I always believe in, and that is to be yourself, because being yourself means that you get to take full control of the things that you want to do in life, and not be controlled by those who have their own lives to worry about. Be yourself and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something that you can’t do something that you want to do. If you want to do something that could benefit your chances of success, go for it. Don’t let anyone hold you back, in fact, don’t let anyone control your life. Control your own life in the style that you want, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Control your own life in the way that you want, but for all of the right reasons.

With Mother Nature coming up to its 2-Year Anniversary on the 6th June 2015, it is absolutely fantastic to know that Mother Nature has gotten stronger in just the short space of two years. It was also around this time last year that I started work on my second book: “A Year in Photography“, which is available for free download under “Free Books“. This was a rather dangerous risk for me to take though, considering the fact that I had my exams to worry about, four of which I passed, with the final result being that I got 6 GCSEs out of the four exams I managed to pass.

With my third book: “My Journey Through a Lens” being almost ready for release, this book is set to be the loftiest book I have ever produced, with this book being expected to cross over the 400-page mark. In turn, I have worked on this book throughout almost the whole entirety of my UAL Level 2 Art & Design Course, as I have balanced my coursework, this website, and also my work on this third book effectively.

With my 17th birthday coming up shortly, which has come around awfully quick due to how much of a busy year I’ve had, I have got some bits and pieces of artwork to submit & prepare beforehand, before all of my Final Major Project work goes on show privately, and to the public. Hopefully, this time around, I won’t feel as stressed as I did last year after I finished my exams. I have found this year to be less stressful, given the fact I’ve only been doing 4 subjects at Croydon College, which are Art & Design, English, Maths and Enrichment.

Sacrifices have been made down the line, and although I may have not been happy to make sacrifices for certain things initially, I am glad to have made those sacrifices, as they have helped me to become far better at the things I can now do.

Before I made those sacrifices, I admit, I used to be laid-back, and I would leave a lot of my work to the last minute, which would make me panic the night before, but after making those sacrifices, I have been able to keep on top of my work, I have also been able to find the time to write and publish articles on Mother Nature, and as well as that, I have been able to work on this third book, which is out soon.

In life, we all have to make sacrifices in order to become better at certain things we weren’t better at before, and by making sacrifices, this will make us all become stronger in ourselves, all of us will also believe in ourselves more for the sacrifices we’ve made, and at the end, all of the hard work and effort will pay off. Make sacrifices to make ends meet, and also make sacrifices so that all of the hard work and effort you’ve made pays dividends.

The colours I’ve used, which are Purple & Green, are how I sense nostalgia, as those two colours combined symbolise my own nostalgic views with reality.

If you have nostalgic views with reality that focus back to yesteryear, please feel free to comment below.

Welcome to May!!!!! A Relaxing & Delightful Month Awaits!!!!!

Hello everyone, and welcome to May on Mother Nature!!!!! As this month begins on a relaxing and delightful note, I wanted to take the chance to ring in the nice and lovely weather that the UK has been getting most recently. I absolutely love this weather, as it is not too hot, not too cold, but just right, even though there has been a bit of a breeze which has been quite cold, though I’ve managed quite well to just brave the cold breeze.

May is also the month of the year where the Whitsun season kicks in, with the Whitsun holiday being set to fall on Sunday 24th May 2015. As there is a month left to go until the start of Summer arrives, this will be the perfect time to make the most of these next few weeks while the temperature is just right, as we will all need to prepare ourselves for any of the scorching hot weather which is set to arrive around the end of June, into July.

In about 5 to 6 weeks from now, Mother Nature will be celebrating its 2nd Year on WordPress, as this website was started up on the 6th June 2013, and for Mother Nature to come this far in that time, I feel so proud to have come this far and I also feel proud to have achieved a huge amount in that time. It gives me the absolute pleasure to say a massive thank you to every single one of you, because without you all, my friends, my family, and even my teachers, I wouldn’t have got this far. Again, I thank you all from the bottom of my heart, I love you all so much, and I want to make sure that the journey continues forever.

There is exciting news in store for this month, as I will be finishing up work on my third book, which is being penned for a release sometime around the end of this month, so I will be working my socks off as much as I can to make sure that this book is completed and ready for release. Don’t worry, this book will be free to download, and will become available for download on the day of its release in the Free Books Widget.

This book is set to not just be the biggest book I will have ever produced, but it will also be the longest ever book I’ve written over the course of around 7 months. Packed with over 300+ pages, this book will focus around some of the photographical articles I have created and published on Mother Nature, as well as some of the articles that focus entirely on many other different subjects that I have covered.

6 Case Studies will also be included in this book, which will focus around some notable historical icons of our past time, and as well as this, there will be some pages that focus on the musical songstress, Madonna, following the recent release of her 13th Studio Album, Rebel Heart, with our Croydon lad, Ben Haenow, the X Factor Winner of 2014 (WE LOVE YOU BEN!!!!!), being featured in this book.

I have so much in this book to offer to all of you, and trust me, you won’t be disappointed, because I have been making sure to fine-tune this book and correct any possible mistakes that have been made along the way, and I have also been very cautious as to how I have created this book, because I want to make sure that it’s perfect for all of you to read, and that this book doesn’t suffer from any form of confusion.

Aside from that, there is a lot I have to offer in store for this month, so stay tuned for the latest updates on the articles that I publish.

Until then, Welcome to May!!!!! A Relaxing & Delightful Month Awaits!!!!!

Alex Smithson

Welcome to April!!! A Month Full of Relaxing Times, Happiness & Joy!!!

Welcome to April on Mother Nature!!! It’s good to be back. As this month is set to kick in with some good weather, despite the solar eclipse that happened just a few weeks ago, this will give nature the chance to blossom and also create a beautiful landscape that will flourish well.

As well as this, this month is also going to be a good month for me, as I’ll be going on a trip up to the Victoria & Albert Museum on the 14th April, which will give me the chance to photograph some images for my coursework.

While this month is in sight, I will be aiming to finish working on my third book before the end of April comes, which is set to be the biggest book I will have ever produced, marking the biggest follow-up from my second book: “A Year in Photography”. My Journey Through a Lens is set to comprise of the first 5 case studies that have been published on Mother Nature, as well as some of the things that I’ve talked about, with two musicians being mentioned in this book, along with my own showcase of my own photography skills.

I have some exciting weeks ahead to look forward to, as I’ll be focusing on my final project once my last few pieces of coursework for the second to last unit are completed, but it feels good to keep on top of the work, which is why I have been able to find some time to write and publish articles for Mother Nature, whilst working on this book.

I had made it my New Year’s Resolution at the beginning of this year to keep on top of my work, as I wanted to be able to have more time to relax, and to also publish articles and work on my book as well. I have kept to this resolution from the start of this year, and I feel more than glad to have kept on top of the heavy workload this year, as this gives me a lot more of time to carry on doing the things that I want to do whilst I have no college work available.

For the first time this year, I have decided to not take a hiatus, despite a heavy workload, given the fact that I took one last year, but my goal for this year is to publish articles over the course of the whole of 2015, as I took a 4-5 month break last year to concentrate on my exams, but for this year, I will make sure to keep on publishing articles, and also complete any work that may involve a possible heavy workload, which I will also work on keeping up-to-date on.

Until then, welcome to April on Mother Nature!!!

DoxDirect | The Easy Way to Print.

This article comes hot on the heels of the book that I recently published, which was: “A Year in Photography”. As DoxDirect are now a special featured printing service which I am delighted to feature on Mother Nature, this gives me the absolute pleasure to announce to all of you that my second book has been printed as a proper A5 Paperback, Matte Laminated book. I have to tell you, I was absolutely over the moon, because this week has been absolutely positive, and the one person I want to mention that helped me along the way with helping me to get this book printed is Louise Gipps.

Louise Gipps of DoxDirect has been getting a lot of positive feedback all across the board from many of the customers that have used this service. As this is my first time printing my book through DoxDirect, I was given so much support by Louise, who I must say is an absolute credit to the company, as she helped me with changing certain parts of the book spine that I created, given the fact one of the spines I created was a little too big.

The book spine, I must admit, was sort of the difficult part, because certain parts of the spine would eventually need re-sizing in order for the pages and the full back, spine and front cover to be printed. However, I received an Email from Louise late Monday night, in which she notified me that the book was despatched and it was on its way, and, the day after Louise notified me of the book being despatched, I received it by delivery on Tuesday. The delivery process was at blazing speed, because I was initially expecting to wait a few days, but, it was despatched on Monday, and arrived the next day, which left me with absolute happiness.

The loveliest part of DoxDirect was that they sent me some freshly made Haribos as a treat, which came as part of the order. Even everyone is talking about this printing service, because you ask them to print something for you, and they like to give you something back as a way of saying thank you for using their service. I wanted to say thank you so much to Louise, because, without your help, I wouldn’t have got my own printed copy of this book. Thank you :-)!!!!!!!!

Overall, I recommend DoxDirect to all of you, as this company has got a fantastic customer experience, and the DoxDirect team are always supportive if you ever need help with printing anything, and from a range of binding options, you cannot go wrong with such a fantastic company like DoxDirect.

Below are the pictures of the front cover, the book spine and the back cover.

The 10 binding options that DoxDirect provide for if you want to get something printed are:

  • Loose Leaf
  • Poster
  • Saddle Stitched
  • Ring Binder
  • Hardback Book
  • Paperback Book
  • Spiral Bound (white)
  • Sprial Bound (silver)
  • Spiral Bound (black)
  • Corner Stapled

I recommend DoxDirect to all of you, as it is one of the most fantastic services I have ever come across, and I would recommend you to try it out.

Also, it gives me the absolute pleasure to announce that a third book is currently in the works, and will be released over the course of 2015. The third book, titled: “My Journey Through a Lens” is focused a lot more on my own form of photography, given the photographical skills I have been expanding on since I started at Croydon College. There is an official awards ceremony coming up on Monday, which I have been invited to attend, so this will also be added to the new book as it gradually develops over the course of now, and over the course of 2015. This new book will also contain segments of certain articles that I have picked from Mother Nature, which will give this new book an all-new, and in-depth journey into what Mother Nature holds in store.

If you want to print a book that you may have written, I recommend DoxDirect. To print your book, or anything regarding the 10 options, please feel free to click on the DoxDirect logo via the Directories page. You won’t be disappointed. DoxDirect are a fantastic company, and they know how to work the magic when it comes to printing what you have asked them to print.

I would like to thank DoxDirect for printing my book, and to Louise. You and this company have been an absolute help, and with the third book, I will release it digitally for free first, and after that, I will use this service again to print this new book. Again, thanks so much to Louise and the whole of the DoxDirect company, you have been an absolute help, and I shall continue to use DoxDirect again.

Alex Smithson 🙂
