Outdoor Photographer of the Year has established itself as one of the world’s foremost photography competitions in this genre. Last year, it received 10,000 professional and amateur entries from over 30 countries, including the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, China, Japan, South Africa, Germany, The Netherlands and Sweden. Outdoor Photographer of the Year: Portfolio One is a stunning collection of the winning, commended and shortlisted photographs from the 2015 competition. Among a sea of excellent images, these are the photographs that exhibit that elusive extra dimension – subtlety of composition, mastery of light, photographer’s vision – which elevates an image to greatness.
The book offers a tour of the world’s extreme environments captured by those environments’ greatest photographers. Combining beautiful design with narrative captions and technical details, it will inspire the growing audience of outdoor photographers and adventure enthusiasts alike.
