Default The Yorkshire Coast - Mark Denton

This book was issued in 2006. Mark Denton is one of Britain's finest young landscape photographers, his work principally covering the North of England. There are about 105 photographs all of high quality, as you would expect.

There is a reasonable length essay on the techniques and equipment used which is very interesting and well worth reading. His main camera is a 6 * 17cm format Fuji G617 and he still uses film (Fuji Velvia 50asa) for reasons which he explains best.

All shots are in a panoramic format and he makes interesting references to the work of Joe Cornish and a book by Colin Prior Scotland The Wild Places which I will have to follow up.

The photographs themselves are roughly evenly split between desolate beaches in early morning or late evening and coastal landmarks such as lighthouses, Whitby Abbey, Scarborough and the rest.

I think it is an excellent book, well laid out and it provides a lot of guidance on technique and positioning. Perhaps one of the best points about is that the more or less exact location of each spot can be calculated and the information at the back provides shutter speed, exposure and month that the shot as taken.

I have just done a quick search on the internet for any interesting links and I came up with http://www.markdentonphotographic.co.uk/yorkshire.htm which gives a link to get a signed and dedicated book for 16. However Amazon is offering it unsigned for 10.50 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Yorkshire-Co.../dp/0711226075

I must be on Mark's mailing list now. Just received the following. I would definitely go if I lived nearer.

I'm just writing to let you know that I'm at Scarborough Library this Tuesday (18th December) at 7.30pm launching my latest book ' The Yorkshire Moors and Wolds'.

There'll be a slideshow and a Q&A session as well as a free glass of wine or juice and maybe even some mince pies!

Please reply to this email to let me know if you might attend. If you are unable to I can still dispatch signed and personalized copies of this or my other titles to the UK in time for Christmas. Please find details here.... http://www.markdentonphotographic.co.uk/moors.htm
