With a personal love for the great outdoors and over three decades of experience in professional photography, Julian Calverley has become one of the UK’s most revered landscape photographers. Hooked from an early age by the breath-taking beauty of the Scottish Highlands, he has carved out a unique cinematic style of landscape photography that is instantly recognisable.
Julian is drawn to the light quality that autumn and winter bring, repeatedly working at dawn and dusk, experiencing the spirit of a place as the sun rises and sets. Visiting these environments time and time again, often in extreme weather, allows him to witness the elements in all their different states. One element in particular – water, both in liquid and cloud form – features heavily in his compositions. By using long shutter speeds, Julian brings the movement of water into his landscape work, harnessing the beauty and motion of mountain rivers, streams, shorelines and skies.
His extensive post-production skills are then applied, with many hours devoted to each image. As a result, the finished pieces command a theatrical air, their atmospheric conditions beautifully observed.
With the allure of the wild continuing to inspire him, Julian is now focusing more on his landscape work than ever before.
North Northwest is a large format book of landscape photographs by photographer Julian Calverley. Designed by Les Welch, printed and produced by Boss Print in London and published by Concentric Editions.
Its simple aim is to portray and present Julian's beautifully rich landscape works, all of which were made during multiple yearly trips over a decade, to the Scottish Highlands and Islands.
Large and imposing like the landscapes themselves, using craft binding and embossing techniques and employing super high definition print reproduction, this book allows the reader to fully engage with Julian’s beautifully crafted work.
The patented Vivid Colour ™ process enabled us to reproduce Julian’s work to an extremely high standard, almost identical in look and feel to his original RGB files. This is something which previously wasn’t possible with conventional CMYK printing processes. A combination of hi screen ruling and expanded colour gamut printing, ensures that images are reproduced as closely as possible to the original, enabling very fine detail and extremely accurate colour and depth.
Each book is signed and numbered by Julian Calverley.
In November 2019, North Northwest won Best British Book and Book of the Year at the 2019 British Book Design & Production Awards.
