The Photographer's Guide to London is the first book in the series to look at a city location rather than the countryside.
Previous titles have looked at destinations like the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District, and in keeping with the series this latest book provides a comprehensive and extremely useful guide to the locations in and around London that will provide fantastic photographic opportunities.
When taking a break to the capital it can be hectic trying to plan what you're going to do and where you want to go. From a photographer's perspective, it can be difficult to factor in visiting places that will yield good photos in the midst of a family break, but this book is sure to help.
Divided into 6 sections, covering every part of London from Westminster and the West end to the Docklands and Greenwich, it's easy to see what is around the areas that you'll be visiting that's worth a photo.
Each chapter includes a map of the area with each of the places of photographic interest clearly numbered. Practical information about each location is given, including the closest tube, bus routes and pier stops as well as opening times and admission prices if the location is a museum or tourist attraction.
From dynamic landscapes taking in the skyscrapers to famous buildings, statues and markets, there is something of interest for pretty much every genre of photographer here.
Whether you're travelling to the capital for photography in particular or are visiting for the first time, this book will prove useful and is a handy size for carrying around with you. There is even a location summary table at the back, allowing you to choose a location on what type of photography it offers, whether there is an admission fee and whether tripods are allowed along with the level of photographic interest it has.
