In the Footprints of Wainwright Summary

In the Footprints of Wainwright by Derry Brabbs

Derry Brabbs spent the best part of a decade taking the photographs for the large-format illustrated walking guides which A. Wainwright wrote from 1984 to 1992, when his legendary series of Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells was complete. This is a fascinating account of Derry's training and adventures from his early days as a photographer, including his first meeting with Wainwright and the joys, trials and tribulations of working on projects with the great fell walker. This work provides insights into Wainwright's unique approach to publishing, straight from the horse's mouth. It features spectacular photographs of famous long-distance walking routes including the Coast to Coast Walk and the Pennine Way. It also gives a wealth of practical advice for the would-be outdoor photographer.

... more than a memoir of a unique personality, or even the story of how Brabbs came to love the Lakes, and, more especially, the wilds of the Scottish Highlands. It is also a gentle masterclass in the art of landscape photography with explanations of how some of the most stunning photographs were composed and created Cumbria
