About Craig Joiner

craigjoiner.jpgI am a Somerset based photographer with a lifelong passion for the outdoors and the Great British countryside. I specialise in landscapes and seascapes of the West Country of England but my work also takes me to many other areas of the UK such as the English Lake District.

My images have been widely published in books, magazines, travel guides, wall art, greetings cards, calendars and more around the world. I have written articles for the photographic press and my images featured, and received commendation, in the Take a View Landscape Photographer of the Year competition.

My images are all made using professional equipment to ensure the very best image quality expected by my clients. Although I now exclusively use digital cameras for my work, until recently I made many of my images on transparency film using a large format view camera. Working with a view camera taught me to take a thoughtful and methodical approach to my image making and I have continued to apply that approach with digital.

My archive of images is constantly growing and new images are added on a regular basis. Please browse the galleries for a selection of my favourite images, or use the use the search facility to find exactly what you are looking for in the complete archive.


I have licensed my images to businesses around the world for publication in books, magazines, travel guides, wall art, greetings cards, calendars and more. My list of clients includes many well known worldwide names. Here is a sample of some of the businesses who have used my work along with a few examples of publications that feature my images.
