2018 marks the twelfth edition of the popular Landscape Photographer of the Year, the stunning coffee-table book that contains spectacular full-colour prints of the winning and commended entries from the 2018 Take A View Landscape Photographer of the Year competition. Both book and competition showcase the United Kingdom’s most beautiful and dramatic scenery through the sharp eyes of the nation’s best amateur and professional photographers.
From saltmarshes, chalk cliffs and misty lochs to tumbledown villages, geometric farmland and jagged cityscapes, Landscape Photographer of the Year: Collection 12 captures the splendour of Britain’s rural and urban landscapes, from the Outer Hebrides to the Sussex coastline. This book is the perfect companion for all photography enthusiasts and armchair travellers, with every image accompanied by a first-hand account of the story behind the picture.
The Landscape Photographer of the Year competition, now in its twelfth year, is one of the UK’s most prestigious photography competitions. It was founded by the country’s leading landscape photographer Charlie Waite, in order to provide an ‘on-going platform for capturing images that best symbolise our land and our times, and that will stand as a record of our country’. Charlie has taken photos professionally for over 35 years and is firmly established as one of the world’s most celebrated international landscape photographers. He has published 28 books on photography and has held over 30 solo exhibitions across Europe, the USA, Japan and Australia. Aside from his own photography, Charlie also enjoys introducing photography to others. Through his company, Light and Land the leading photographic tour company in Europe, he and his specialist photographic leaders run worldwide workshops and tours dedicated to inspiring photographers and improving their photography.
