It’s always great seeing your work printed. Any landscape photographer knows that.
It feels like the final stage in the genesis of a shot, from the original conception, through however many attempts it takes to shoot it, post processing… seeing it on a screen in pixels just doesn’t feel final enough.
Obviously I’ve seen my work printed many times now, from magazines to books to my own prints for sales and exhibitions.
However I recently had a first for me in that I managed to land my first book cover shot, thanks to Carl Rogers at Northern Eye Books with this image of morning sunlight on Bowfell used for his ‘Classic Fell Walks in the Lake District’.
If you’ve seen any of Carl’s books you’ll know he’s pretty handy with a camera himself, and the standard of photography is high throughout, certainly higher than most walking guidebooks, so I was honoured to be chosen to supply the cover.
