I have an ambition to produce some books of photographs in the not too distant future. On this page I hope to start cataloguing them.



Meanwhile here is some reference to two books I was involved with in the past.
Beginners Guide to
Cameras & Photography
My first taste of publishing happened whilst Helen and her twin brother Paul were tiny babies and things were hectic at home. It was appropriate that I acted as technical adviser on this book on Photography aimed at young children.
Published 1979 by Usborne
64 pages with illustrations
ISBN: 9780860203070


Practical Photography
This was a book co - written with a colleague Andrew Gregory. It aimed to become the first modern photography textbook written in English aimed at secondary school students studying photography. It got good reviews and was sold internationally. In attempting to produce a book for a new young audience getting seriously interested in Photography - we were proud to have produced something innovative. It is amazing seeing it still being sold second hand over 30 years after it was written and published.
Published 1985 by Longmans
119 pages with illustrations
ISBN: 9780582235038
My daughter Helen Trompeteler has begun to venture out into the world of books on photography, but at a very much higher level.
Man Ray: Portraits
An essential reference guide to Man Ray's life and work, this book includes an introduction by Marina Warner, as well as more than 200 beautifully reproduced images. A beautiful richly illustrated and detailed chronology by Helen sets Man Ray's work in the context of his life.

Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon
This collection of over 145 portraits and supporting images explores the iconography of Audrey Hepburn, one of the world's most photographed people an international film star whose image is as familiar now, two decades after her death, as it was during her lifetime. Helen's lead essay in the book gives a brilliant explanation as to how Audrey Hepburn, and the photographers with who she worked, produced a legacy of images that have produced a modern icon that still endures. The book also features a chronology by Terence Pepper.
