My Top Picks

Landscape Photography cover

John Shaw's Landscape Photography
Author: John Shaw
Publisher: Amphoto

This one is a classic!

Although it was first published back in 1994, this book is still valuable today. Except for the brief pages on film, everything else is still relevant. Shaw discusses lenses, and their proper use for landscapes, how to design your image (composition), problem solving, and most importantly (in my opinion!) light.

The book is filled with gorgeous and inspiring images that illustrate the importance of light on the landscape.

Every serious and aspiring landscape photographer should own a copy!
