We came across these lovely little books purely by chance, when looking for a walking book to take on a recent trip to the Peak District. What struck us most about The Photographer’s Guide series is the pinpoint accuracy of the photogenic locations that have been selected and nearby parking options – a godsend if you’re on a quick tour. This book, specifically for the Peak District area, is your indispensable guide to taking stunning photos of this popular destination.
Measuring only 12.7x19.7cm, they’re pocketable and lightweight, yet each is packed with over 50 great photography locations. Each location shows you your best photographic opportunities when there and gives a good overview of the site, including how busy it’s likely to be and alternatives if it’s a popular spot. It also gives best times of day to shoot the scenes if you’re looking for specific lighting.
A highlight of these books is the handy chart in the rear, which gives you at-a-glance information about the type of location, the difficulty of the walk, the time from the car park to the location and a star rating. There are also numerous maps in the book, making it easy to sort out where the parking is and also which way to go once parked.
We think these handy Photographer’s Guides make perfect gifts for photographers and walkers alike.
