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.
