With a foreword by Sir Chris Bonington

Snowdonia is one of the most accessible mountain areas in the UK and photographer Nick Livesey knows it better than most. Having lived in the heart of Snowdonia for the last five years, Nick walks these hills and mountains with his camera most days.

In Photographing The Snowdonia Mountains, Nick shares his knowledge guiding us around the best mountain walks, short walks and roadside locations for mountain photography.

Fifteen of the best mountain walks for photography in Snowdonia are described by route descriptions and detailed contoured maps, along with photographic advice for each walk.

    In something of a departure for fotoVUE, Nick Livesey’s “Photographing the Snowdonia Mountains” is as much a hill walking guidebook as a photo location guide. In my opinion, this works superbly, showcasing Nick’s deep love of the the national park’s mountains as well as his skill as a landscape photographer.

    Many of us in the landscape photography community are familiar with Nick’s work and his journey of discovery since moving to North Wales. It’s an uplifting story made all the better by his incredible skill with a camera and his deception in being on the hill all year round, whatever the weather may throw at him.

    “Photographing the Snowdonia Mountains” is a triumph for both Nick and fotoVUE and I’m really pleased to have added this volume to my rapidly growing collection from this fantastic publisher.
