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. Also described are ten roadside locations and short walks that have the best mountain views for those who don’t want a full day out or don’t want to walk far, also included are true roadside locations for those who are less mobile.

Land’s End

Boasting some of the most dramatic cliffs in England, Land’s End is much more than just a famous signpost and an under-whelming theme park. Once you get past the commercial buildings the coastal landscape is absolutely exquisite and offers a wealth of viewpoints 
for seascape photography.

Porth Nanven

  1. Tim Scanlan (verified owner)

    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.

    I am sure the conent of this book is first class, as are the other FotoVUE I have purchased. Had this book been published as the others i.e. in portrait, I would have purchased it. Sadly that is not the case.
