World renowned landscape photographer. Joe Cornish was born in Exeter in 1958. He studied art at Reading University, where he first came under the spell of photography. After graduating in 1980, he worked as an assistant for four years in London and Washington DC. His first job for the National Trust was the 1990 book, In "Search of Neptune", and he has continued to work freelance for the Trust ever since.
Joe moved to North Yorkshire in 1993. Starting in Stokesley, the acquisition of Register House in Northallerton in 2004 led to the formation of Joe Cornish Galleries. The Joe Cornish Northallerton gallery holds a permanent exhibition of Joe's work, as well as his print archive. http://www.joecornishgallery.co.uk/
