Professional photographer Robert Harvey BA ARPS EFIAP CEnv CSci MCIWEM has created Natural World Photography, dedicated to creative images of landscapes, wildlife and the beauty of the night sky. A Chartered Natural Scientist and Associate of the Royal Photographic Society, Robert leads photography tours throughout Britain as well as overseas. More than 290 of his photographs, including over 100 landscape images, have been accepted in international exhibitions worldwide.

Living near the World Heritage Site of Avebury, some of Robert’s favourite images have been taken in Wiltshire, where our ancient past resonates through the landscape. He is the author of “Photographing Wiltshire”, the only photographic guidebook to the county, published by Fotovue in 2020.

Robert is also inspired by remote locations such as coasts, mountains and deserts, where untamed land is sculpted by natural elements. He has photographed all Britain’s National Parks at their seasonal best, along with coastlines throughout the British Isles from the southern tip of Cornwall to the northernmost point of Shetland. Overseas, his favourite countries for landscape photography are the United States, Namibia and Norway, each of which he has visited several times.

This book shows how to capture the beauty of the night sky with a regular digital camera and lenses. All the subjects described can be seen with the unaided eye and none of the pictures were taken with a telescope. Many of the photographs include iconic landscapes in Britain and overseas.

A digital camera records much more detail that the eye. It reveals the colour of an aurora, the trail of the International Space Station, dazzling beads of brightness at the end of a total solar eclipse, five planets in a single image, a dark shy studded with countless stars, the Milky Way arching between opposite horizons, and structure in an unimaginably far-away galaxy.

The book is available for purchase at £20 from Robert’s website here>>>
