Haje is curious to a fault, and what is loosely referred to as his 'career' reflects that. He has crashed fewer motorbikes than you'd think, and once set his face on fire whilst juggling. He loves new challenges. Oh, and he tweets a lot, at @Haje.

He freely admits that some of these things are more worth being proud of than others.

The Rules of Photography (and when to break them)


One of the most popular cameras on the market is called the “Digital Rebel,” yet many photographers use it and its brethren to follow tired old rules .

This book shows you how to move beyond the dogma and shoot more creatively.

If you’re just starting out with a camera, or are starting to think about switching away from Auto mode, then this is the perfect book for you. Not only will you find within all the classical rules of photography—useful basic knowledge that can sharpen anyone’s eye for finding great photographs—but you’ll simultaneously be shown how you can push the boundaries that many teachers set, filling your memory card with exciting, different pictures that push the limits.

After all, unless you understand the confines of the box, you can’t consciously decide to think outside of it, can you?

Fancy having a thumb?


Can't blame you, but then I'm biased, of course: I'm proud of all the books I've worked on. You'll probably be completely, deeply unsurprised to find out that copies of The Rules of Photography (and when to break them) are available from all sorts of places.

Most big book shops worth their salt will have a copy or two on the shelves. If they don't it may be that they have a couple of books tucked away under the counter (Cheeky, but I guess they just want to keep them to themselves). Smaller book shops should be able to order you a copy - all you need is to give them the ISBN number (It's 978-0240824338), and they'll sort you right out.

If you're one of those high-tech types, you should be able to get a copy of the book from Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk - Enjoy!
