Photographing Dorset


by Mark Bauer


Explore the tabs below to find more about this book including a look inside it.

Dorset is home to some of the most beautiful photographic locations in the UK. On its 95-mile long Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site, you will find the pinnacles of Old Harry Rocks and the famous arch of Durdle Door. Just inland is the 11th century Corfe Castle, the moored boats at Wareham harbour and the rolling hills and villages of Thomas Hardy’s Wessex.

Swanage based Mark Bauer – one of the UK’s leading landscape photographers, takes you on a tour of the classic Dorset locations and shares some of the area’s hidden photographic gems.

From the foreword by Tony Bates MBE, President of the Dorset Wildlife Trust:

It is not surprising that there are many books that illustrate the beauty of Dorset, but this one is different.  Mark Bauer has not only provided us with a superb range of photographs but we are provided with great detail on how to find the best viewpoints.
