Happy New Year!

Thank you for your support and interest. we are just starting work on a brand new Caribbean book. Details coming soon. For now – I just wish you a fantastic, magical New Year 2012!

Merry Christmas! And our Christmas Gift to you!

We all at Ozone Zone Books would like to extend our warm Christmas wishes to all our friends and blog readers. Thank you for your support, it means a lot to us!
To show our gratitude, we are happy to give you a small gift:
TWO FREE CHAPTERS from our two award-winning books.

Chapter from Tropical Homes of the Eastern Caribbean showing a luxury villa (and also exclusive vacation rental) on the famous private Mustique Island. This is a rare glimpse one can have at the island of celebrities – so exclusive that one can’t visit it without an invitation!

Get it below, right click on the link and save to your computer:

And a Chapter from Exotic Gardens of the Eastern Caribbean showing spectacular, huge Montreal Estate Gardens high in the mountains of St Vincent island. It is so lush and huge, it is hard to think it is a garden!

We hope these beautiful places will let you forget about the cold weather, and will transfer you to sunny, tropical paradise!
But hurry – this is only our Christmas offer, and these links will be removed at the end of Holiday season!

What’s new at Ozone Zone?

I have been quiet for last couple of months. It doesn’t mean there is nothing to report, quite contrary.
We are happy to announce our new Web site . It was time for a new look and more friendly layout. We are really happy with outcome, and thank for that really fine team of Web developers  If anyone is looking for a modern site at a very reasonable cost, and a really fine support while everything is done – and after that too – I offer them my most sincere recommendation. They proved to be top guns.

What else?
We are working on starting on-line photography salon – competition. Soon, fully interactive system will be finished and our first photo competition will be open! We are thrilled to promote this way fine photography. I am quite passionate about it, and I hope to find support from RPS (Royal Photographic Society) of which I am a member.

and – what else?
I was very busy photographing locally, in British Columbia, Canada. I did several trips to photograph wildlife. I photographed a jazz performance of a Cuban band Cuban Party, and I did several portrait sessions.

  I also photographed some real estate for Sotheby’s agency as well as for a luxury magazine here in Victoria.
My series of portrait photos Sinister Kabuki was published by Canadian Camera magazine, where also is printed another recent photo of mine – Tile Tales, winner of a honorary award in CAPA annual Canadian competition. And soon, we will be heading to Caribbean islands for another series of location shoots.

Anything else?
Yes! We would like to wish all of you fantastic Holidays and a great New Year!
