EGYPTIAN COLLECTION

"as a professional photographer he has also seen the country with a different eye through the viewfinder of his camera, and recorded it in a series of quite stunning and evocative photos"
Peter Clayton on cover of Egyptian Holiday 
 
Please see Alamy.com  and CROOKTREE.COM for access to my main collection of Egyptian material.   Use the Alamy search engine under my name and with either Egypt or a more specific description e.g. Tutankhamun Death Mask, tomb reliefs, God Amun, Philae Temple etc.  
                                                             
I have completed a selection of old albumen photos, which I have been collecting, by Beato, Frith and Sebah from 1857-1890 on Alamy along with modern versions - a Then and Now project - April, 2008.
 
 
           
I have been photographing in Egypt since my
 first visit in 1994. My interest in Ancient Egypt
 went back to my earliest schooldays but it
was not until 1994 that I was able to fulfil a
lifelong ambition to visit the country.
 
Please note that a full list of my collection with Alamy.com is on the Egyptian Galleries page - just key in my name and the subject required in their search engine. My own online image library of Egyptian photos is CROOKTREE.COM. On Crooktree in the Links page there is a detailed article about my photography experiences in Egypt.
 
Contact me if there is not exactly the photo or location required as I may have it to hand. Scans and digital images can be forwarded to tight deadlines.
 
A selection of my photographs of Egypt can be purchased as prints or canvases from Galleryprintsuk.net and as canvases for those on Deeside from Reprografix in Banchory.

"Jim’s ’labour of love’ is an excellent photographic travelogue which I am delighted to Foreword"

On my first visit and being a professional photographer I set myself the task of starting a library of good colour and monochrome photographs, as well as taking photos for a book I decided to publish encapsulating this first Egyptian experience. This B&W book was eventually published in 1996 under the Crooktree Images name as ‘Egyptian Holiday’ and copies are still available from me.
Since my first visit in 1994, I have made ten more visits to Egypt, expanding my photo coverage of many ancient sites.

My library stock is in medium format square and 645 colour transparency format, 645 and 35mm monochrome, 35mm chrome and 35mm colour negative stock and since 2002 mainly digital.

Apart from the all the main sites visited by most tourists, I have visited many of the outlying pyramids, including views of rural Egypt and along the Nile. Interiors of the Cairo and Luxor Museums, some of the pyramid chambers, various temples and tombs are also available,

The City of Cairo, and Luxor and Aswan, Lake Nasser and its sites, all the Light Shows and the El Fayoum area are covered. Some images of modern life in Egypt are captured as well although the concentration of my library is on the ancient sites mainly visited by tourists.
