Joe Cornish. Possibly Britains best known contemporary landscape photo artist along with Charlie Waite, Joe has done much to bring landscape photography into the public domain. A committed worker, a tireless pursuer of his art and finally a very nice person! Joe was interviewed by UKL and is a contributor to the "Winter Exposed" exhibition at Kew Gardens.
First Light: A Landscape Photographer's Art by Joe Cornish. Joe Cornish, one of Britain’s most distinguished landscape photographers, has distilled the key elements of his craft into a collection of thought-provoking essays accompanied by a stunning selection of his photographs. The subjects range from his beloved North Yorkshire to the rocky canyons of the Colorado Plateau and from the rugged Cornish coast to the rainforests of New Zealand’s Fjordland. They have been chosen to reflect the enormous range of his work and to illustrate how he puts his working philosophy into practice.
Jo Jackson. Jo joined in UKlandscape December 2003. Her principle work is in taking photographs of Richmond Park, Surrey, UK. Her UKL contribution is mostly of this beautiful park set only a few miles from the centre of London.
A Year in the Life of Richmond Park by Jo Jackson. Richmond Park is the largest open space in London. Only ten miles from central London, it is one of the city's most popular and treasured Royal parks. It has 23 ponds, acres of grassland, thousands of trees and expanses of bog and bracken-covered ground, providing habitats for thousands of species of plant and animal life. Joanna Jackson's book gives us an insight into a year at Richmond Park. She covers every aspect of the park's life, from animals to trees, from history to its appearances in literature.
Jon Sparks. Jon has been with UKlandscape since 2001 and is also an exhibitor at the UKL Kew Gardens "Winter Exposed" exhibition. His page is always in the UKL top twenty of popular photographers. A talented recorder of wild places.
Lake District Moods by Jon Sparks In Lake District Moods, the award-winning photographer Jon Sparks takes a fresh and different approach to recording the beauties of one of Britain's best-loved landscapes. Through 140 stunning images, he manages to capture the essence of what makes the Lake District what it is, by looking at it in all its many, varied and constantly-changing moods. There are no chocolate-box images of yachts at Winderemere here, nor the traditional view of the Langdale Pikes from Elterwater. Instead, we have subtle details of lake and leaf, the effect of the sun on the water, and the intricate patterns formed by the drystone walls as they cross the valleys. The Magic of the Scottish Islands Written by Terry Marsh, photos by Jon Sparks 'I sat with my back against the pitted surface of the Ringing Stone on Tiree's northern shore watching grey seals at the water's edge and lines of low-flying tysties skimming the waves. Further out, a bright yellow fishing boat came and went with the swell, its rise and fall a lazy pulse against which life in the Scottish islands seems to be measured. Exposure to too much of this island magic, I thought, could mark a man for life, leaving him forever entangled in inexplicable enthusiasms for lazy days, bright blue skies, an encircling sea and the quiet ways of island nature.' In this book, Terry Marsh combines his written word with the evocative photography of Jon Sparks to portray the main island groups in all their moods, and to focus on what it is that gives these islands such magical and lasting appeal. Scrambles and Easy Climbs in the Lake... by Jon Sparks with Judith Brown Photographer Jon Sparks has teamed up with Judith Brown to produce a book that bridges the gap between scrambling and climbing The Lake District has a lot of England's best scenery - and a lot of its best rock. This book will help you make the most of it. By linking scrambles and easy climbs (up to V Diff) it opens up a host of immensely satisfying days out, most of which end up on a summit or a ridge. There's helpful advice on many vital matters: how to get started and how to progress; the best routes for beginners; routes that are safe in the wet, and routes to avoid; not forgetting where the best pubs are to round off a great day in the time-honoured fashion.
Ray Spence. Another "Winter Exposed" exhibitor Ray is also a panelist for the Royal Photographic Society and a runner up in their annual Print Contest. A meticulous black & white artist.

Barry Thornton. Another guest exhibitor at the "Winter Exposed" exhibition at Kew Gardens Barry was about to be interviewed by Sophie Martin-Castex, as part of her ongoing UKL celebrity interviews, but his very untimely and tragic death in November 2003 prevented this. As an artist and a technician Barry has been compared to Ansell Adams both for the creative depth of his imagery and his superb knowledge of developers and film emulsion.
Edge of Darkness: The Art, Craft, and Power of the High-Definition Monochrome Photograph by Barry Thornton.
Mark Bauer. A first publication from talented landscape photographer Mark Bauer concentrating on the Dorset countryside. Interestingly Dorset is the most photographed county on UKlandscape and Mark's photographs show why.
Romantic Dorset by Mark Bauer
Steve Gosling. Over the last few years my work with a pinhole camera has taken me on a multi faceted journey – a geographical one to various locations across the UK; a technical one to understand and utilise pinhole photography’s unique characteristics; and on a personal
voyage of discovery in my development as a photographer. Like most long journeys it’s been an experience of learning & transition with a few surprises thrown in for good measure. And it’s a
journey that continues.
Lensless Landscapes by Steve Gosling. New from Amazon £36.99.
Review by Brian Sharland - As a working landscape photographer and running a website devoted to landscape I get to see a LOT of images. I'm also aware of the immense amount of work that goes into creating good images. So the effort that has gone into this work must have been extraordinary. And as a result the images in this book are about some of the best B/W photographs I've ever seen and I include photographers like Bill Brandt, Fay Godwin and Barry Thornton in that list. Steve's images are beautiful, stirring, ephereal and inspiring!
Great Gardens Of America by Andrea Jones and Tim Richardson. Andrea was a founder member of UKlandscape back in December 1999 and is a hugely talented photographer of plants and gardens as well as landscape.
