'Why beat yourself up by doing the whole long shooting match in one go? Why not enjoy the British countryside at its best as you dawdle vaguely northwards through hill and dale? On the way, Helen took stunning photographs of the route and its coastal paths, meadowland, country lanes, moors and woods. With disarming frankness, she and Bob touch on the highs and lows of the adventure, their reactions to it, the surprising discoveries and the sheer joy of getting to know Britain in a completely new way.'

I am not just a photographer but a writer too.  Currently I have two books available, both published by Merlin Unwin Books, Britain's leading publisher of countryside books.

The books are published under my maiden name of Helen Shaw.

The books are available directly from me, from Merlin Unwin Books, any good bookstore, or online.

In autumn 2019 my next book of landscape photography, about the Pennines will also be published by Merlin Unwin.

The book covers the whole of the Pennine range from the Peak District in the south to Hadrian's Wall in the north.  There is also a chapter on the Cheviots as this is where the Pennine Way finishes, even though they are not Pennine hills!

There is a sneak peek of a few images from the new book below.
