    This book is mind-blowing

    Very good experience, the book came very fast across the ocean (to North America) in a perfect double packaging. Also included as a gift 2 very nice signed prints and a bookmark. The book is mind-blowing which it appeared to be in the video and made me order it but to see it in the flesh is another level ! Wonderful, I don't know how you managed to find a printing service that does such a great job in producing the book for such a reasonable price.They also do a great justice to your photos which are excellent to begin with. Thank you again. Cheers and congratulations for this accomplishment,

      Really Happy....

      I'm really happy with your book. It was a birthday present for a family member who has long visited and photographed the Lake District and they were really happy with both the photography and quality of the book itself. Thanks

        A lovely collection of images of the Lake District

        A lovely collection of images of the Lake District, very nicely produced, along with the two free prints. The photographs capture the tranquil atmosphere of the region perfectly, and are not over processed.

          I bought a print of Buttemere, your book and thank you for the extra little ones which I think are Thirlmere. The service was great and the quality fabulous.
          I have spent many happy times around Buttermere and on the fells and you capture well what it means to me, so thank you.

          Great Job!

          Many many Thanks.

            Really pleased with the book, the photos are excellent and draw you in the beauty of the landscape, as you have captured it, you almost believe you are there and is a constant reminder of how much I enjoy the fells. The book is a real credit to your passion of photography.

                Absolutely love your book

                I absolutely loved your book and thought the extras were a wonderful touch. To be honest it was a gift so I didn’t want to look through the pictures too much, but I did have a sneaky peak and they were beautifully shot. I also chose your book from your online page where I could look through quite a few.
                The book was for a colleague who was retiring and was presented to her because the Lakes is her favourite place. She recognised every picture she looked at and felt they captured the essence of the Lakes extremely well. In fact she’s heading up there next week and indicated from your pictures the next mountains she hopes to climb.
                The book itself was well made and was regarded by all who saw it at the retirement party as a beautiful gift.
                My partner is also a photographer (amateur) and enjoys photographing the Lakes, so was a little jealous of your location for capturing the landscape in all its seasons.
                Many thanks for contacting me.

                    Not seen any higher quality...

                    The photography and production is very fine indeed. As a photographer who has self published several books I can say that I have not seen any higher quality in the physical book itself in the many books I have read or reviewed and I particularly like the way the cover was handled and embossed. When preparing a book for retail sale those extra costs often get cut out. Very nicely done. I enjoyed very much your images as well, and am currently booking a visit for early November of this year. It is helpful to orient to some locations that may be productive. You set a high bar. This is a trip for personal art and relaxation as I am fully employed outside of photography. My images may turn out to be a bit eclectic as I am more and more looking for smaller scenes, reflections and abstracts.

                    Should your travels take you to USA please contact me and I will assist as I may.

                        Impressed by the quality

                        I bought ‘Capture Lakeland’ for my father for his birthday which was yesterday. I hadn’t opened it beforehand as I wanted it to be in pristine condition.

                        He loved it! Other family members loved it! ‘Gorgeous’, ‘fabulous photos’, ‘where did you get it?’, ‘how did you find it?’, ‘Who is he?’, ‘Is he from the Lake District?’

                        I should explain that as a family we lived in the lakes, the fells and lakes were our play areas; my father went orienteering, he took us to wonderful places, got me into walking, my brother got into photography. We all live in different places now but like you, we didn’t really appreciate what we had on our doorstep until we left.

                        Your book, for us, celebrates our memories, so thank you for that. My brother teaches college and adult students ‘digital imaging’ so he appreciates your skills.

                        We were impressed by the quality of your published images as well as the beauty of the locations themselves.

                        Your short biography is interesting and an added personal touch. The additional signed prints of calming scenes was a delightful bonus, as was the manuscript notation of book ‘620’ of a limited (1000) run.

                        So all in all a successful product in many ways! Well Done!

                          Capture Lakeland Feedback

                          First of all, thank you for a very efficient service in the delivery of my two books and also for the added contents. The prints were a real surprise. The picture of the Herdwick's face on the packing paper was also a delight!

                          I had purchased Capture Lakeland as a leaving gift for the GP Practice where I have been working for the past 21 years. I wanted to share with them my love of the Lake District, by hopefully allowing them to escape from their stressful and high pressured jobs through the pages of your book. I treated myself to a copy as well and am really glad that I did, as I can too relax and enjoy your images of a beautiful land.

                          Your book was received warmly by the Practice and I have had lovely comments about it. My family have thoroughly enjoyed looking through it and our only disappointment was the inclusion of the landing stage pictures, which unfortunately has become a rather stereo typical image of The Lakes. The picture on the front cover is breathtaking and draws you in to see more. I have just returned from a couple of weeks in Keswick and Grasmere and noticed your book in a number of the bookshops. The front cover like no other.

                          It's a refreshing change not to have captions on each page, but also a little frustrating in trying to work out where a picture has been taken and proving that you're right!! Perhaps an index at the back of the book would help solve this.

                          The Lake District's landscape is breathtaking and you have captured that feeling for me many times over.

                          Kind regards and every good wish for the future.

                            I have spent many days walking in the Lakes over the last 30 + years, and the views that I've seen just take my breath away. Each time I leave I get the maps and guide books out just waiting until I can go and visit those wonderful places again..... well with this book I feel like I'm there and that I have my boots on.
                            A fantastic collection of images that capture the Wild Lakeland, who knows I may even get my Camera out again

The book is very high quality and the photos are simply stunning, I could sit and look at them all day long but sadly as it’s a birthday present for Denise I have to wrap it up and hand it over next weekend when the five of us are back in the Lakes to celebrate with her. Also thank you very much for the birthday wishes in the book, very much appreciated.

                                    I think your book is beautiful. Nicely made and high quality.

                                    It’s very inspiring to me as a photographer, I love the geographical sections. I can easily see the areas I would like to go to shoot. As a matter of fact, I think we share some of the same artistic vision.

                                    One of my friends is a commercial printing rep, and he also thought the book is of nice quality.

                                    I know you told me that you lack energy from chronic fatigue, but if you are able to put together even a 4 or 5 day package to go shoot these locations, you would be able to sell it out. You could keep it small to 4 or 5 people and charge like 5k. (Just an idea)

                                    Now that you have shown me how beautiful it is, I want to go, and also experience it and make my art too!

                                    I see the Holy Spirit in your work, I feel the energy, and see the awestruck beauty. It’s right on James.

                                      Exceedingly delighted

                                      I received the book today and I must say that I am exceedingly delighted with its purchase. Initially, I kept thinking that 2 pages were stuck together but it is the quality and thickness of the paper itself causing this phenomena. Each subsequent turn of the page bringing euphoric mental enrichment. What I have relished most is the combination of your YouTube videos showing the technique of capturing a moment in time and then finally realising the image within the book’s pages.

                                      I spent the first 16 years of my life being dragged up some of the mountains that have been recorded - my parents had a caravan located within the Great Langdale valley - it was only in later years did I come to appreciate the landscape; alas, my knees have now succumbed to some sort of terminal ailment (mainly due to rugby) preventing further egress upon the Fells. Looking upon these wondrous images has brought back many evocative childhood memories.

                                            Finally we got to hang the piece on the wall and it looks magnificent! Both of us were really nicely surprised by the quality and how light it is given the size! We are very happy with the purchase and contemplating on ordering another piece or two. We are also delighted with the book, it brings a lot of memories to our family from the visits to Lake District and definitely makes us think to go back again. My partner commented it was the best birthday gift and was retracing his childhood paths.

                                            In total we have now 2 of your pieces from John Lewis (framed) and the panorama directly from you, and I must admit the aluminium just looks the best out of those. Maybe it is my personal preference, but I really like the fact it is non reflecting and light.

I also was impressed with the soft cover over the book which I think is a nice touch.

                                              I am really impressed with the actual book, the cover has immediate impact with a well chosen image, and the content is inspirational. I have been visiting the Lake District for over 40 years and feel that I know it well. Your images not only remind me of some favourite places but also offer new opportunities for the future. I am also a landscape photographer and will be using the book as a reference guide as well as a source of pleasure.

                                              Well done James, you should be very proud of what you have produced, good luck for the future!

                                                I was lucky enough to have a piece I wrote for Country File magazine published as letter of the month (April edition, I believe) and as a result received a copy of your recent publication, Capture Lakeland. The letter described our assault on our last Wainwright with our whole family, 13 of us encompassing 3 generations, so as a prize/reward, your book is so apposite and a lovely reminder of many of the places we have visited over the last few years on our quest. The photos put my meagre attempts at some kind of photographic record to shame, but thank you, I really appreciate your work.

                                                Very best wishes, perhaps we'll meet on the fells some day!

                                                          Captures all that I love about the Lakes

                                                          I am more than happy with the purchase. I am a regular visitor to the lakes and you have manged to capture all that I love about the area. I particularly love the images around the langdales and Haystacks. I hope to but a large print in the near future.

                                                            Inspirational

                                                            I have had this book since publication. I wanted to wait a while and let it all sink in before commenting.

                                                            It takes me back to places I know well and transports to pastures new. At moments I ache to grab my camera and try and capture similar beauty, at others I want to throw the camera in the bin due to frustration at my lack of ability. Then I gaze afresh at the images and count down the days till I can walk the valleys and fells again.

                                                            Thank you, James.

                                                              I received your book yesterday but wanted to have a proper look at it before responding, I am extremely impressed with the quality of both the print and layout of the book but even more so with the photos it contains. I look forward to looking at them again and again to discover new details within each photograph. The book has now taken pride of place on my coffee table.

                                                              I came across your book and yourself after I purchased a piece of your work from John Lewis late last year. I will certainly be looking for more of your work in the future.

                                                              Thank you for the two prints I will be having them framed to go up in my house.

                                                              I wish you all the best with your future work and look forward to seeing what you produce.

                                                                    My wife, Hannah, ordered it for me as a surprise and the photos are inspiring. We actually have your framed picture in our hall of the cottage by haystacks looking down on buttermere. And my parents have your classic picture of fleetwith pike and haystacks.

                                                                    My wife and I live outside Southampton in Hampshire and travelled to the Lake District a few years ago for the first time. We have now been six times and try to come at least a couple of times a year. Although it is quite a journey from Hampshire our love and passion for the Lakes increases each time.

                                                                    The Lakes are so beautiful and although you can feel very tired at the end of a long days walk it is so relaxing and wonderful.
                                                                    Thank you once again for producing and sharing your book - if I’ve had a tough day I often look through your book and my stresses seem to flow away, it really is inspirational.

We both love the book and cannot be more pleased with it. The quality, finish and presentation of the book is second to none and now has pride of place on our coffee table and we constantly pick it up and have a look through.

                                                                              The only point I could make is that in the non-location chapters (i.e. Fells of Lakeland, Flowing Water, Industrial Lakeland etc.) it would be good to know where some of the pictures were taken, I understand perhaps you did not want text on the pages but perhaps a list by page numbers at the back would help.

                                                                              We will certainly be purchasing any further volumes you produce in the future.

I will be up in February and am really keen to try to get to Glenridding to see your gallery and I think that they are also keen to see more or your work. I have had a lifetime of visiting the lakes and walking the fells so to be able to capture the colours and changing moods of the seasons is a gift so I will enjoy revisiting the book and changing my mind each time on my favourite.

                                                                                  I wish you well in your chosen field and will enjoy seeing you new work as it comes through either online or in person.

I thoroughly enjoyed my first thumb through the pages closely followed by a few slower looks just to take in the beauty of the images. It was well worth the wait, as well as beautifully tactile and I think that’s what I loved about it most, being able to just pick it off the shelf and lose yourself in the photos as opposed to, perhaps for example, swiping through on an iPad e-book, which really doesn’t have the same effect.

The Lake District holds wonderful memories for both my husband and myself. We sadly haven't visited for several years but hope to return soon. In the mean time we have the brilliant images in your book to bring the Lake District

I think the pictures are wonderful and I particularly like the way you have chosen the chapter subjects. It’s so good to see something a little different like the passes and industrial Lakeland. My friend loved her book too and her son who does some photography, was very impressed.

With the added touch of my name in your book, the Free prints are lovely, since then we have purchased another two.

                                                                                                Your Book is beautiful, amazing landscapes, my partner and I Love the lakes, it just brings back our happy memories walking with our dog.

My son was one of your supporters and received a copy of your book ”Capture Lakeland” which he showed to me. As soon as I saw the cover photo of “The Retreat” I said “oh I like that”! My son encouraged me to look through the book before making a decision but that was the one I chose. The colours are beautiful. I also like the fact that to me it could be a painting which makes it extra special. The book has also been shown to some friends and family all of whom admire it very much so hopefully you may receive more orders!
                                                                                                  I was very impressed with the prompt delivery and the expert packaging and thank you too for the calendar.
                                                                                                  May I wish you continued success and good health to go with it.

The photographs are simply stunning and the amazing quality of the publishing makes this a book which will be forever treasured in our home.
                                                                                                            As my husband and I often go to the Lakes and we had enjoyed a family trip there this summer I gave two copies of Capture Lakeland as Christmas presents. It took a very long time to prise my husbands copy away from him to have a look myself, as he was recognising so many of the places and was completely lost in the wonderful photography! Needless to say it has often been browsed through since.
                                                                                                            Thank you so much for persevering with Capture Lakeland , the last few months must have been so frustrating for you but what you have accomplished is a truly a work of art.

The pictures are outstanding (as always) and the presentation is spot on .

                                                                                                                  I like the style of the cover and the lettering makes it stand out as something different from other books.
                                                                                                                  I love the way you manage to capture the feel and emotion of the places in the pictures, i can easily lose myself in it.
                                                                                                                  The colours are really vibrant making the pictures almost come to life.
                                                                                                                  The book itself is the perfect size and is comfortable to hold.

                                                                                                                  The only possible negative is that when i first looked through it i wished the pictures were labelled with where they were taken or what they were of rather than just a general heading for each section. However, after looking through the whole book i realised this would have distracted me from the images themselves if that makes sense. It's probably just a personal thing and most people wouldn't even notice. Maybe a list at the back of the book giving this information could be an option for future books but it is really just a small point and wouldn't stop me buying if you were to do another book of the lake district.

                                                                                                                  Thanks again for producing such a great book, I hope sales are going well and wish you luck in any future projects.

We are well aware of the stress you have been through in reaching your ambition but we are sure you must be proud of the result. The quality of the book and pictures are first class and we are sure this will be a family heirloom for many years.

                                                                                                                      We also loved the calendars and the prints you included, thank you for those. This is the second year we have sent a calendar to friends in Australia who have visited the Lakes, and they have loved them and the memories they bring back.

We think you nailed the artistic and production sides. My parents walked the Lake District for years and my mother couldn’t put the book down. Parkinson’s and advanced age means they no longer walk. I was touched (and so would you have been) to see glistening eyes as the photos brought back memories. It was truly an inspired gift and I thank you for it. My husband and I also know the Lakes well though we no longer live close by. Thanks to the book we feel we still see the scenery. Thank you James.

Equally pleased that he persevered through tremendous production difficulties to deliver the high quality of printing and binding that his exceptional photographs of the Lake District deserve. Well done and roll on Volume 2!

The photos are stunning and presented to a very high standard in the hard back book. We will enjoy it and cherish it for years to come. The only downside is that it makes us want to visit The Lakes more often than possible!

                                                                                                                                Thanks again, and all the best for 2018.

The paper is such good quality I thought 2 pages were stuck together and the pictures are absolutely stunning some look 3D some look like paintings but all of there are very inspirational and make us want to see some of these places when we are on holiday in the lakes later this year.

                                                                                                                                      To be honest with you, I have only positive feedback for you regarding the book. I tried to look for something negative, but there isn't just one single complaint.

                                                                                                                                      I'm absolutely thrilled with the book and the calendars. The quality of the photos, layout, print etc is from a very high standard.

                                                                                                                                      I was glad you kept us in touch by e-mail during the process of making the book and all the problems/delays you were facing.

                                                                                                                                      All in all it was worth the wait :)

                                                                                                                                      I wish you all the best and I'm so happy for you, you've accomplished the best!!!

I had no concerns with the delays that were caused through no fault of yours. A master photographer deserves his pictures to be presented in a high quality book And you have achieved this.

                                                                                                                                        I do hope that this matter gets resolved to your satisfaction and true justice prevails.

                                                                                                                                            Really happy with the book, images themselves are excellent as expected but the book itself, the printing, paper & binding all pretty much spot-on. I reckon good to keep the same format & publisher next time so that future volumes look good together on the bookshelf…

                                                                                                                                            Cheers & Happy new Year

                                                                                                                                                Thank you so much for your beautiful Capture Lakeland Book which I received just before my husband and I left home for a cruise over Christmas. I gave it to him as a Christmas gift and he was absolutely delighted with it, and thrilled to see my name included in the list of so many people who have supported you through the many months it has taken you to produce such an exquisite book.
                                                                                                                                                I am so sorry for all the trouble you had to go through to get your book printed to such a high standard, but it was certainly worth the wait, your book is stunning. It brings back so many wonderful memories of holidays we have spent in the Lake District, and also given us ideas for places we would like to visit in the future.
                                                                                                                                                Best wishes for a very happy 2018, and a return to full health for you.

                                                                                                                                                  Having been a admirer of James Bell’s work for some time, I took a leap of faith and invested in this book at the stage of conception. Having taken delivery just before Christmas, I am certainly not disappointed. The images are varied and beautiful. From small intimate micro-landscapes, to sweeping ethereal views. Add to that the fine quality of printing and production, and you have a book that is an absolute pleasure to browse on a cold wet winters day.

                                                                                                                                                    It is, without doubt, one of the best printed photography books I have seen, and that includes the latest critical edition of The Americans and some Magnum stuff. Your effort and determination resulted in a magnificent book, of a quality that exceeds in realism and immersive quality of the best “retina” displays.

                                                                                                                                                    Now about the photos. Many of them have a vividness and poetic quality to them that are breathtaking. As my wife and I flipped through there were a quite few gasps.

                                                                                                                                                    My God, what a terrific work. I hope you follow up with other books, now that you have a printer. I also suggest that you are undercharging for this. I think I paid something like $60, with shipping. I would have totally paid $100.

                                                                                                                                                    Please do more. Spectacular.

                                                                                                                                                      I love your book so much..

                                                                                                                                                      I take my time, as it is very important to tell you how lucky I was when receiving your book + calendar + free artprints shortly before Christmas … your package really made my day and I guess it was the gift which was ( and still is ) the most important one to me this christmas .. this may sound a bit strange , but I love your book so much … I look & read through it almost every day just to get me in a good mood instantly

                                                                                                                                                      Additionally noticing my name printed on the last pages … feels a bit privileged to see my name there, but somehow I am also a bit proud , even I did nothing special except pre-ordering & buying this beautiful book from you .. thank you for that !

                                                                                                                                                      What I like about your book (except all the stunning photoshots themselves, which are superb and besides the excellent quality of the book & high paper & print quality itself ) , is the fact, that all of these photographs wouldn’t have shown up to me unless you didn’t put so much of your personal efforts , fights & character in this project in the past (and money & a lot of nerves I guess ) .. which I think is remarkable

                                                                                                                                                      James, I personally thank you very much for bringing this (your) project to life & for not giving up in hard times & to finally share this wonderful artwork with your friends worldwide .

We’ve spend lots of time in the lakes and have a lodge near Penrith which we use as a base for walking etc. The pictures capture our memories, they created reflection and discussion on the views, angles etc. Everyone agreed the clarity was very good with lots of admiration of how you captured the scenes and where you must’ve stood to take them! .Comments such as ‘I’ve taken photos there and never captured it that perfectly ’ etc! We all thought the layout and focus on the photos was just right. It’s a book to browse through time and time again.

Thankyou, I love it so much and the prints, calendar, the mint cake are all wonderful and so generous of you. I even love the card inside which I am going to use as a book mark. It has worked out perfectly and I hope your not to much out of pocket with all the problems you had getting it as you want. I will continue to follow your journey and hope to purchase other prints etc in the future.

I bought it as a present for my partner, we've had many happy holidays in the lakes and love your photography, your photos bring back many great memories. We've really enjoyed looking through it over and over again. The quality of the book is very good indeed, you did the right thing in rejecting the original print run, I was so sorry to hear that you'd been let down by the first printer and really hope you sort out your case with them.

The addition of his name in the credits was a lovely surprise for him.

The book was fantastic. The layout, the quality and, of course, the photographs. Mum loves it. The extras that came with it were a lovely touch, especially the Kendal Mint Cake.

                                                                                                                                                                        Obviously the delays were not ideal, but at no point did I hold you responsible for them, and you did a great job of keeping me updated with the progress. It was originally going to be a 50th birthday present, but became a Christmas present instead, which was fitting, as we spent Christmas in Keswick.

                                                                                                                                                                        A fantastic book, you should be proud of what you created.

And it was so kind to include two prints and a calendar. It's lovely to have such a beautifully designed calendar to use all year. Your book I purchased as a gift for my daughter and I look forward to giving it to her. I'm very glad I helped you complete your desire.

                                                                                                                                                                                    The presentation is glorious and so robust that it will last many many years.
                                                                                                                                                                                    The photographs within are beautiful and brought back so many happy memories for my Mother, and myself. Sadly my Dad passed away before seeing it but I know he would have relished every page.
                                                                                                                                                                                    It is not just a book of pictures, it is obviously a part of you and your journey in life.
                                                                                                                                                                                    Thank you also for the beautiful calendar and prints.

Our calendar has pride of place in the kitchen too.

                                                                                                                                                                                      I did follow the on going saga with your UK publisher with interest and i completely agree with you waiting for the product you were happy with.

                                                                                                                                                                                      We have four of your very large prints on the walls around the house and the quality has always been fantastic.

                                                                                                                                                                                      Your photos have encouraged me to get involved in photography myself although to a much less professional level! Winter DSLR course starts in two weeks and I am really looking forward to it.

                                                                                                                                                                                      We will continue to buy your work and really hope that more books could be in the offing in the future - if your nerves could take it!

                                                                                                                                                                                      All the very best for the future and continued success.

The book is fab quality and we have enjoyed looking through all the photos of our favourite places to walk in the Lake District.

                                                                                                                                                                                        I would strongly recommend your landscape prints to others.

Unbeknown to me my brother had also bought one and gave it to me for a Christmas present, (No 336) what a wonderful surprise so my friend will still be getting the one I bought and I have a copy all to myself!

                                                                                                                                                                                          The book is absolutely beautiful, well presented lovely photos taking you through the favourite parts of the Lakes which we all love! The paper on which the photos are printed is quality and the cover and binding look stunning with the silver lettering. I can't fault it.

                                                                                                                                                                                          I already have four of your prints mounted and framed ranging from Slaters Bridge in the early morning mist, the Langdales, an Autumn Coniston print and one of your Buttermere smaller prints. I love to browse your collection and also look at your latest work. I think my next choice will be a Wast Water one!

                                                                                                                                                                                          We come up to the lakes each year and walk a few more Wainwrights, hoping that one day we will achieve them all. I am up to 99 so only another 114 to go!!

                                                                                                                                                                                          All the best for your future work and look forward to your next edition. ☺

The word 'delighted' hardly covers it, really. It WAS worth waiting for (I know you had a lot of trouble getting the precise perfection you sought) and my husband, for whom I bought the book as a gift, was thoroughly taken by the fact that his name was in there, and that it has such stunning pictures of the Lakes, a place he loves very much. I would not hesitate to buy another (and more), it makes a great gift. Having his name in there raises the level of the book to that of almost a family heirloom!

                                                                                                                                                                                            Please do consider carrying on with this project, more of the Lakes, think about doing some of the west coast of Scotland and the highlands - your style would be well suited there, too.

It is everything I hoped for, and am very pleased.

The quality of the printing and binding was well worth the wait.

The quality is outstanding and the pages so thick that at first I thought there were pages stuck together. I love the front and back cover and the silver lettering is perfect. The photographs are so clear and I can imagine I'm back there and get really lost in the most beautiful scenes. It's wonderful to remember the places I've already visited and to hope I get the chance to revisit them and the other parts of the Lakes that you make me want to experience. I must also mention the wonderful calender which I can look at whenever I want and the beautiful prints which you so kindly gave us and I can't wait to get framed. I would love to purchase more of them in the future. Everything is spot on James and I was so excited to see my name in the back of the book and couldn't help showing everyone. I will treasure all of these and want to thank you James for your generosity and your honesty and for persevering to get the best book possible. You should be very proud x

The cover looks amazing and it oozes quality and it has the 'wow' factor from beginning to the last page. I have other books on the Lake District but this one surpasses them all from the quality of the printing and lovely heavy paper, through to the stunning images. James has obviously put a lot of time and effort into choosing the photos to create an engaging narrative, leading the reader through the Lakes through his eyes. It is an engaging narrative which really captures the beauty and life of the Lakes. The book was also sent promptly with good comms from James as to it's order status and came well packaged as well. I highly recommend this photographers work.

The presentation and the book are of very high quality, and we have leafed through the book, cover to cover, many times since it arrived.

                                                                                                                                                                                                        Both of us are [very amateur] landscape and nature photographers, and really appreciate the skill, patience and perseverance you have shown in getting the composition and lighting ‘just right’ in your photographs. Of course, having the outstanding beauty and rugged grandeur of the Lake District as your subject helped as well.

                                                                                                                                                                                                        We love the book, its materials and its format, when it comes to subjects, my ‘better half’ and I tend to disagree – she prefers the lakes, and I prefer the fells. Our favourite areas in the Lake District are Wasdale, Patterdale / Helvellyn / Ullswater and Langdale. So, we’ll be looking forward to whatever you produce as ‘Capture Lakeland 2’.

It looks very professional and deserves pride of place on any coffee table or bookshelf.

                                                                                                                                                                                                              'Capture Lakeland' was delivered to me just before Christmas, but today was the first real opportunity I have had to properly look through it as I've been poorly or busy or both since then. I did have a glance but I really wanted to take a good look before letting you know what I thought of it. The first glance did not fail though, and on opening the parcel (very well packaged by the way), it really did have the 'Wow' factor. The cover looks amazing and it oozes quality, so delaying the print and getting another printer who could do your work justice was definitely the right move.

                                                                                                                                                                                                              Now I've had time to sit and properly look though the book it lives up to it's wow factor and does not disappoint at any point. From the silver title on the cover to the lovely thick, quality paper inside on which your wonderful photos are printed, this is a work of quality which exceeded my expectations. I have other books on the Lake District but this one surpasses them all. You obviously put a lot of time and effort into choosing the photos to create a smooth narrative, leading the reader through the Lakes through your eyes. I very much like the way you have grouped the photos together in themes or around certain Lakes which creates a dialogue of pictures which asks the viewer to focus on these things, from the detail captured into 'Intimate Lakeland' through to the vast panoramic views which sometimes cover both pages and make you feel like you are standing there. I hope you are very proud of what you have achieved here because you should be. I will treasure this book and I am proud to see my name in the back pages.

                                                                                                                                                                                                              I do have two small suggestions if you should tackle another book in the future which you may wish to consider, but these do not detract from what a wonderful book you have produced at all. Lay flat pages would help viewing the double page pictures and a glossary of shots at the rear of the book would be a helpful touch, especially with shots that are not grouped under a lake heading

This book is simply stunning and with every turn of the page you get a new treat! I love it and it was well worth the wait! The quality is exceptional and a true representation of a fantastic photographer. I’m lucky to have three prints from James too; the three Herdys, the single Herdy and the beautiful autumn picture in Borrowdale. The latter two being Christmas presents this year. The quality of the prints and the customer service from James is brilliant and I’m excited to see what visual treats 2018 brings!

We absolutely love the lake district and for myself and my husband it's like going home whenever we return. We already have two of your amazing images on our walls at home, Buttermere in our lounge and Wastwater in our bedroom. We have a two year old little boy and another baby on the way, due in January which means recent trips to the lake district have been limited and it is unlikely that we will be going anytime soon so I'm so glad that we now have your book so that we can reminisce about old times and look forward to new adventures in the future.

I bought Capture Lakeland for my partner for Christmas as we have had some wonderful times in the Lakes and have some lovely memories. It arrived on friday so I left it unopened so we could both enjoy the 'first look. All I can say is Wow! It is fantastic! Such beautiful photographs and so beautifully put together and laid out. The quality is wonderful - thank you so much for all your hard work and for persevering to get the best quality - I think it was worth it and I hope you do too. I love the book and my partner loves it too

Perfect timing.

We don’t get up there anything like as often as we should. The book, and your prints help us with a little reminder of home.

Prints and a book offer something that on screen images, as lovely as they can be, struggle to achieve. It’s a labour of love and something to be so proud of James Bell. It really is superb!

Thank you so much and I have already placed another order as this book is the perfect coffee table book and will look so very beautiful in my holiday cottages as a treat for every guest who comes to stay here. It is complete and utter perfection in every way and totally captures and mirrors the beauty of the Lake District. Every picture tells a story and leads you in to the photograph making you feel you are actually there. The quality of the book is outstanding and certainly beyond all expectations. Every single thing about it is truly magical and thought out with total love, talent and dedication. James has without any shadow of a doubt produced the best Lake District book I have ever seen and I am thrilled to have found it.

Capturing the real beauty of the Lake Distri

NY. USA. As soon as I saw the US Postal Service van arrive and an A4 sized cardboard box arrive with your name on it, the excitement grew. Out came a bottle of Single Malt Whisky and a very pleasant hour was had spent reading the captions and looking at the beautiful images! This will be repeated many times in the future.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                I love the feel and texture of the front and back covers with the detailing of the book's title and your name. I love the mixture of colour, black and white images mixed in with the detail of rocks, streams, leaves, bluebells, silver birches and the Herdwicks sheep!!! It really captures the beauty and ruggedness of the Lake District, and brings back great memories of going there with family, friends and my wife (before we had kids - they will be taken there for sure in due course!) I already look forward to Volume 2, and your Isle of Skye book. The book really shows that there is real worth and beauty in going to the Lake District in the middle of winter, as well as Autumn (and Spring and Summer). Just wish I lived a bit nearer!

You can be rightly proud of this edition, and I am sure your skills and expertise will continue to grow. Keep going old boy! (Thank you for the Kendal Mint Cake (already consumed), calendar, and the two images too!)

First impressions are very very good, excellent! Will have a good luck at the book in the coming days and no doubt will let you know my thoughts, but from a quick glimpse whilst unpacking it is 'top drawer' ... printing and finishing is excellent and the images look so real, well done!

An excellent album of photographs which capture not only the grandeur of the area but finds beauty in the natural world. The photographs are presented in sections detailing specific areas or topics which make it easy to find particular prints. I also like the succinct 'word pictures’ which introduce each section. Well done.

My favourite place of Wastwater is so beautifully shown here and I am tempted to drive up there right now! You have had such trouble getting here, but the result is wonderful and I will enjoy this book for many years.

The book and paper is of the highest quality, and makes the photographs really stand out. It is both amazing to hold and sit and look into. If viewed in daylight one really can enjoy the amazing colours of James artwork.

I love what I’ve seen so far though, and that’s just the cover and the thickness of it.

I am glad I preordered when I did, and I am glad that he took the time to make sure it matched his vision. Well done, thank you for this book, and I look forward to seeing Vol. 2.

It's a very special peaceful place & we go back there often, (even a butty stop in your book) besides loving other areas of the lakes, so your photos just mean a lot. I wish I had a talent in photography to take photos myself, because besides the views, I would also take close up shots of rocks, plants etc too.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          It was lovely to see the dedication, and really surprising, thank you, (second look at the book...which made me cry again! - so it must be good!)

For people like me who cannot get to The Lakes as often as they would like - I live on the South Coast - it is so lovely to look through your beautiful photographs in between visits!! They bring it alive at its very best. We don’t need reminding of the soggy days!!!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                There are 2 images that make me particularly smile. The first one is of you at the little tree on Rydal Water as someone took a photo of me on exactly the same spot and I've used it as an introductory image for my talks. I almost got into trouble tho as I hadn't seen another tog at the end of the water and lost in the fog and I was in frame. I moved immediately and fortunately he was ok about my faux pas. The other photo is the double page spread on p48 as the bench is one of my most favourite in the Lake District. Whenever I stay in Grasmere I always head there for a few minutes contemplation.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                I have just produced 2 yearbooks of my photographs and it is wonderful to turn the pages and look at the printed images. I wouldn't dream of selling copies but I know what pleasure the printed page brings to the photographer. Well Done.

The whole book is beautiful. I particularly like the simplicity of the hard cover; the look and the feel just tell you that it is a quality product. The photographs are of course stunning but I am so pleased that along with the landscapes you also included some of your less "obvious" photos. We have two of your woodland prints and (finally) purchased a print of the "Slate Palette" from Ruth. We love these as much as the Lake District landscapes so it was great to see these other images in the book. Photography as art certainly; for us the Slate Palette is a piece of modern art on our wall with its colours and textures. The way you have organised the book with favourite views interspersed with Herdies and more detailed photographs not only keeps the reader turning the pages for more but will I'm sure encourage people to look more closely at your "other" work

Congratulations to you, I know it has been a struggle to get the book published to the standard you wanted but you have achieved what you set out to do and have created something you can be proud of. Certainly it will be taking pride of place in our cottage in Patterdale for us and our friends to enjoy. I hope you can now relax and enjoy a happy Christmas with your family

The quality of the book itself and the photographs in it are fantastic.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    I love the front cover, brings back happy memories of a walk we've done many times. Herdwick sheep always make me smile so to see some included was great. I love autumn in the lakes and your prints capture the colours perfectly.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    We only get to the Lakes twice a year which is nowhere near enough. I've looked a long time for a book of photographs that can make me feel like i'm there and have bought a few over the years but they always lacked something. I occasionally suffer with anxiety and one of the ways i manage it is to visualise being in my favourite calming places in the lakes. Your book instantly took me there, not only the areas i've visited but also the prints of places i've never even been. I know this will be a big help to me during the rubbish times and can't thank you enough for producing it, to me it's so much more than just a book.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Your honesty about M.E./CFS, anxiety and depression was very inspiring to read and makes the book even more special knowing you've produced this despite all the battles and setbacks you've had. I appreciate your perseverance to get the quality you wanted. I never doubted the book would come eventually but your updates on facebook were much appreciated, it showed you care about your customers.

I wish you every success with this book and any future projects you may do.

We have been visiting the Lake District regularly for the last 30 years. The pictures are stunning & it's fabulous to see pictures if places where .we have walked. For me it is just such a special book & I know it will bring me hours of pleasure just looking at it.

Huge congratulations! Your book is wonderful in everyway from, obviously, the actual photographs to the extremely high quality of the book itself. Indeed it's rare to find a book with such high quality paper. Love the choice of pictures and look of the actual cover too. I've seen on your Facebook page the difficulties you encountered in achieving your wish for such a high quality book but it was well worth your perseverance I can assure you. I will get huge pleasure regularly looking at the book, particularly over the winter months when I'm not in the Lakes. Thank you, so chuffed with it, and also the calendar and prints which you very kindly also sent.

So very very best to you. I really hope you are able to manage the challenge, keep a spark of positivity during the shitty times, and carry on finding opportunities when you can to give pleasure to folk like me through your images and work.

A neat white border surrounds the printed image allowing easy mounting or framing. Please note loose prints are posted in a sturdy card tube wrapped in acid free tissue paper. Please take care when unpacking your loose print and be mindful of scratching the ink on the paper.

The canvas is wrapped round the edges of a mortise jointed, wedged and tensioned 36mm deep wooden frame and stapled on the reverse then satin sealed for a durable substantial contemporary look. Canvases can be cleaned with a damp cloth and are much lighter than a framed print. Canvas Prints can be much larger too.
