Landscape photographer Charlie Waite has mastered the art of the perfect holiday photo, taking “painterly” pictures of Britain’s landscapes for over twenty years.

With 28 books, 30 solo exhibitions and a fellowship from the Royal Photographic Society under his belt, Waite has used his expertise to teach leading and amateur photographers how to capture the perfect image.

Over 100 photographs he has developed with his tutees are to go on show at an exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London in August.

From photographs of Llanddwyn Island Lighthouse in Anglesey, north Wales, to Scotland’s frozen Rannoch Moor, the pictures capture a Britain at its best.


Other stunning “holiday snaps” in the exhibition include a Tuscan storm in Italy, dawn rising over Sifnos island in Greece and a leopard roaming in South Africa’s Greater Kruger National Park.


Waite said: “The exhibition is a celebration of the individual photographer’s personal response to a moment of beauty.


“It invites us to engage with the photographer’s intent for each individual image allowing us as the audience to stand alongside the photographer, immersed in the time and place when the image was made.”


Light and Land runs at Mall Galleries in London from 2-10 August.
