Wild Christmas: 30% off nature and landscape photo books

Wednesday, 2 December 2015

Over the years, we've been lucky to work with some of the world's most talented outdoor photographers. Their interests, outlooks and styles all differ wildly. But one thing that they all share is an originality of vision that enables them to trample all over any sceptical assumption that we've 'seen it all before', and present the outdoor world afresh.

Landscapes that we may have experienced on countless occasions - whether through our own eyes or in others' photography - are re-interpreted and unveiled before us as though for the first time. And we're reminded that, even in the most familiar landscapes, there are always surprises to be found - it might just take a shift in perspective.

Below are five Vertebrate books that we feel truly capture the essence of their wild subjects. You can get 30% off eligible titles when you enter code WILDCHRISTMAS at checkout*.

Wild Britain Barry PaylingWild Britain

The photographic portfolio from professional photographer Barry Payling, one of a unique band of photographers in the world who practise ‘pure photography’.

Each photograph is a true rendition of the scene - there will have been no manipulation whatsoever. Barry was an advocate of #nofilter well before the era of twitter and instagram!

Barry draws satisfaction from casting in new light the ‘things which could be found in your local hedge’ and sharing his love of Britain’s landscape.
