Capturing the beauty of the Northumberland Coast is a challenge taken on by many photographers, but few do it so well as so well as acclaimed landscape specialist Joe Cornish.(Jane Coltman Northumberland Gazette)
Cornish's images of this unspoilt shore are full of subtle colour, atmospheric light and feathery textures. It's a book to gaze at and be transported by.(Coast)
To bring this beauty to life takes a special eye and a brilliant talent. Thanks then to the photographer Joe Cornish. In fact, please take a bow Joe, for in your recent book you have brought together a glorious collection of photographic scenes that will surely move all of us who have a knowledge, however intimate or fleeting, of this gloriously remarkable coastline, and perhaps equally significantly, inspire those of you who have yet to appreciate its glorious temperament.(Living North)
A well-crafted collection of images that capture Northumberland's special atmosphere as well as its many and varied charms.(Amateur Photographer)
His photographic journey covers many subjects familiar to Northumbrian readers but it is given added dimension and impact by compositional perfection and quality of light.(Northumbrian)
A fine example of the breed - few could do this type of photography better [3 stars](BBC Countryfile)

First Light is a guide on how Joe approaches his photography. It includes photos from all over the world and has an extensive commentary on each photo explaining what was special about each location and how he's learned to improve over the years.
Scotland's Coast is less of guide to photography and more about what Joe finds inspirational about Scotland's Coast. Limiting himself to Scotland's 6,000 mile-long coastline over a short period of time the light is less than ideal on many photos, but you can still see the quality shine through, page after page.
With this book Joe limits himself even further - to just a 50 mile stretch of Northumberland's coastline. As a result the book is slimmer (128 pages) than the previous two (160 pages). The commentary is also significantly reduced, which is a great pity; the previous two books are packed with useful information about each location and his musings often increase the intensity of the emotional impact of each image.
So, with a reduction in size and commentary, is this book still worth buying? Undoubtedly - yes! Anyone familiar with this coastline will not fail to be astounded by the quality of images he has managed to collect from this tiny section (0.5%) of the UK's coastline. I thought I was familiar with Northumberland's coast, but having read this I realised I'd only scratched the surface.Read more ›
The book is no where as descriptive as the others, with a few sections having more detailed text about the areas photographed than others. Otherwise the photographs have very minimal text if not, no text at all.
This really is a picture book in the sense of the words, and yet does not live up to the quality associated with it. Maybe more like 'coffee table book' would be better suited. I can see this book in doctors waiting rooms, rather than being kept carefully in someones photography book collection.
The photographs are printed on a relatively decent paper, however it is not up to the standard of other books. Clarity and sharpness are not quite as expected, and the images do not leap from the pages as with Joe's other books. This obviously is not down to Joe, however, the publishers Francis Lincoln could of achieved a better quality I am sure. This is probably down to the low selling price of the book, and maybe is not being aimed at photography buffs, but rather the general public?
This book doesn't cover camera techniques, filtration, composition etc etc so anyone desiring this will be disappointed, however there are a few pages at the back detailing camera and film choice only.
I don't think this book engages the viewer through the photographs, and many of them are, well, rather boring?Read more ›
It's good stuff but, maybe because the subject matter isn't always as dramatic, not as inspiring as Scotland's Coast: A Photographer's Journey or his first book First Light: A Landscape Photographer's Art.
In summary - very good but if you don't have the others, get them first.
Page after page of beautiful images of this unique area with its castles,seascapes and that special light,
Joe Cornish has captured it all.
