SKABOOK 2012

One of our regular and local team photographers Kevin D. Harvey had a book published by Blurb in 2012 to record Skabour 2012 in photos. Kevin says “The Folkestone Skabour Festival was not only a great event but also gave me the opportunity to put my local band live music photography experience to good use. I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and this book is a result.
I invite you to preview the book. This allows you a fifteen page preview of the contents and hopefully if you are suitably impressed, Please click on the link beneath the image and this will take you to the publishers website”.
