Landscape photography is one of the most popular genres for amateur photographers, with countless competitions and awards heavily subscribed by enthusiasts and professionals who are keen to pitch their work against their peers. Beyond the competitions is an even larger community of landscape photographers, who can be found tramping through the wilderness in search of their next great shot, ready to sit for hours until the light is ‘just right’.

However, mastering the genre takes time: time to perfect exposure, colour, composition, and – perhaps above all else – the ability to see and record the landscape in a way that will make your photographs stand above the rest. To set you on the path to success, Masters of Landscape Photography delves into the world of 16 leading lights, each with their own unique take on how, where, and why the landscape should be recorded. Through probing Q&A style interviews and beautifully reproduced images, the reader is given an insight into the artist’s working practices, from the equipment they use to the techniques they employ to create their breathtaking and visionary works.

In this lavishly illustrated title, glorious colour photographs sit beside atmospheric monochrome, the latest digital techniques rub shoulders with traditional film-based imaging, and conventional landscape mores are countered by experimental artworks, guaranteeing something to inspire the reader, no matter what their landscape persuasion.
