About the Book
This book is for anyone who has ever come home from vacation disappointed in their travel shots. Whether you're an occasional point and shoot photographer or one with advanced knowledge of DSLR settings, your travel shots will continue to disappoint until you learn the basic tips and tricks of travel photography, as well as the simple basics of good photography.
Most people think they can just pick up a camera and shoot. That may work at family dinners, picnics, a day at the beach, your kids, friends or even your dog or a backyard flower ... but it won't get you a great shot of the Eiffel Tower or bring back the memories of those magical moments you spent in Europe for two weeks.
Good travel photography can be very simple or it can be impossible to capture those magic moments ... your choice. My show and tell method is simple and will get you the results you want ... and after your next vacation, your friends and family will line up and be excited to see YOUR great shots!
This book was born from my passion for travel and photography. Rome was my introduction to Europe and every street corner I turned was like a page from a history book come alive. I was mesmerized ... and hooked. In the years since, I have traveled extensively throughout Europe and around the world, camera in hand, recording the memories forever. My photos have been published in Fodor's 2009 Turkey Travel Guide and in 2012, I received a National Geographic Daily Dozen award.
