Alastair Lee is a multi award winning photographer and filmmaker. He has been taking photographs since he first went travelling at the age of twenty, and his main focus in front of the camera has always been his passion for rock climbing and mountaineering. He is the author of seven books, including the acclaimed Pendle (Frances Lincoln, 2009), a collection of photographs of his beloved Pendle Hill in Lancashire, and Baffin Island (Frances Lincoln, 2012), a lavish photographic record of his expedition to Mount Asgard with world-renowned rock climber Leo Houlding. More than five years in the making, Lake District Mountain Landscape is his most ambitious book project. Over the past ten years Lee has also established himself as one of the world's leading mountain and adventure filmmakers, scooping numerous awards at film festivals around the world: his 2008 release On Sight won the prestigious Grand Prize and Best Climbing Film award at the 2008 Kendal Mountain Film Festival. He followed this up with a trilogy of critically-acclaimed films with Leo Houlding: The Asgard Project - winner of 22 international awards, Autana and The Last Great Climb. Alastair lives in Lancashire with his partner, son and daughter.
'Lee's Cezanne-like obsession with capturing and recording a rocky feature in all lights, conditions and weathers makes his quest a fascinating one.' (The Independent on Sunday). 'They're not just pretty pictures but images that speak of a fundamental appreciation of the hills as a refuge from the world and a visionary vantage point, a unique wild character in the landscapes of our imagination.' (The Guardian). 'Jaw-droppingly stunning views of Lake District fell tops feature in this quite breathtaking book from award-winning photographer Alastair Lee. No one leafing through this collection of inspirational images can fail to be impressed by the mood and majesty of the mountains that Lee has managed to capture through his lens.' (Westmorland Gazette). 'Any photography fans with an affection for the area should get hold of a copy and stick it on their bookshelf for emergency inspiration.' (Cameron McNeish, TGO Magazine). 'This beautiful 'coffee-table' collection of photographs is probably the most stunning I have ever received for review. Few photographers have produced such evocative pictures. This stunning volume is a gift to be treasured and enjoyed for years.' (Keswick Reminder). 'Lake District Mountain Landscape is a gorgeous look at the less-travelled route, where peaks meet sky, the summits of the landscape whose lower reaches were made famous by Wordsworth. Lee's photographs are compelling, and stunningly rendered in a large format book that carries its panoramic power to the eye.' (Steven Ross Smith, Director of Literary Arts, The Banff Centre). 'Some of the photographs in this collection of landscapes of the high Lakeland hills are sumptuous beyond words, and offer quite staggering detail. I've seen little else that captures what it's like to be high on the fells with the same expansive pleasure.' (Ed Douglas, calmandfearless.com).
