Welcome to fotoVUE

We work with the best landscape and outdoor photographers to produce and publish high quality photo-location guidebooks. As well as guiding you to the best places to take photographs in an area, our guidebooks are full of inspirational photography and give technical advice on how to take the best photographs.

Currently we have five photo-location guidebooks available: to the Lake District, North Wales, Wildlife in the UK, Cornwall and Devon and in a few weeks time, Dorset.

In the first few months of the new year to be published are fotoVUE photo-location guidebooks to the Peak District then the Italian Dolomites, followed by Scotland, London and South Wales, with more later in 2017.

All the best,

Mick Ryan and Stuart Holmes, fotoVUE



Many of the locations in Andrew Marshall’s guidebook Photographing Wildlife in the UK are in Scottish mountains. This winter you can share in Andrew’s knowledge of wildlife photography and his experience of this special area on a variety of courses.
I have recently returned from a few days in Chamonix in the French Alps where I was on a pre-winter training trip with Keswick Mountain Rescue Team.
Photographing the Dolomites is nearing completion and it’s been a frantic last few weeks trying to finish the few outstanding photo locations.


In February 2015 Mick Ryan went to Iceland as a guest of Wild Photography Holidays. This is the diary of his trip.
In July 2016, fotoVUE Director Stuart Holmes went on a trip to the wildlife paradise of Galapagos Islands with his partner Lucy Dickinson. 
They bring joy on a rainy day and can make the difference between an average photograph and a spectacular one.
