To be published May 2021


Anyone can photograph the landscape … but what makes a striking landscape photograph? Why and how does a superb photograph stand out from the rest?

This book explains the fundamentals of accomplished landscape photography, along with the techniques and perception required to take your images to the next level. It covers everything from equipment, composition and light to making the most of seasons and the weather. There is a wealth of guidance on topics such as photographing lakes, waterfalls, the coast, tides, waves and storms. You will find inspiration to help you plan ahead and think creatively, make the most of opportunities and develop your photographic style. How can you make your pictures more compelling, capture a moment or tell a story?

The second part of the book gives you all the information needed to photograph 100 outstanding locations throughout Britain. From the southern tip of Cornwall to the northernmost Shetland island, taking in all 15 National Parks, stunning coastlines and the most spectacular historic sites, they encompass the magnificent variety of Britain’s rural landscapes. For each location, there is comprehensive information on viewpoints, directions, maps, co-ordinates and where to park, together with the best times of day and year.

Robert says “My philosophy is that as a landscape photographer, I strive to show the world as I see it. Careful composition, good timing, seasons and light provide the creative elements of my photography.”


In his Foreword to the book, Dr Richard Ellis ARPS, Chair of the Royal Photographic Society Landscape Group writes:

“Robert takes us across the regions with a set of stunning images. He is equally at home on the coast, up in the hills or out on the moors ... This is a really comprehensive book for the landscape photographer and I am very happy to recommend it.”
