What is landscape photography? 

Landscape photography is photography capturing the natural scenery, scene or landscape. It can be your way of showing how you see the world around you, and a way to capture the beauty of the landscape and your environment, whether that’s locally, or when travelling further afield.

What gear do I need for landscape photography?

Whilst it’s true you can shoot anything with your existing kit, if you have any doubts or are starting out from scratch, then make sure you check out our guides to the best cameras for landscape photography, as well as the best wide-angle lenses for capturing landscapes.
