I'm looking for a book for my niece for Christmas. She is 15 and interested in photography so would like to get her a coffee table style book to inspire her.

She likes photographing flowers and landscapes and less action, journalistic, dynamic, urban type photography

Thankyou for your help.

Galen Rowell- Mountain light

Amazing images of landscape all taken with manual 35mm Nikons. Some notes about how shots were taken.

There's a new coffee table book on photographing Scotland's landscapes due to be released very soon. Think you get a discount if you pre-order

First Light, Joe Cornish

Has a good short piece on each picture describing the craft behind it, and also pictures of fails (a brave move, and one we should see more of, I think), so great for inspiration and leaning.

His Scottish mountains one is very good too.

The 'Landscape Photographer of the Year' series are worth a look.

I'll second the Galen Rowell and Joe Cornish books, and add, any of Gordon Stainforth's coffee table books (Eyes to the Hills, Cuillin, etc.). You will likely need to find them on Abe/Amazon. All the photos have a small but illuminating backstory as an appendix.

Yes, that is a great feature of some of these books, and Gordon's in particular. I'm still mystified by his find of two rings worn in the grass on a remote Irish mountain.
