For roadside enthusiasts or seasoned professionals, Mastering Nature Photography, Shooting and Selling in the Digital Age is the one-stop-resource to shooting and selling nature photography. Drawing from the author's long-time experience as a nature photographer, the book provides a comprehensive real-life account of the field's working conditions along with the artistic, business and technical skills to succeed in it. The information is presented in a practical field-guide format, for users of both traditional and digital equipment and organized into five main sections.
The first three sections cover basic techniques and practices of nature photography, from the various types of environment, objects and equipment to questions of style, composition and mood. Sections four and five cover organizational, business and career issues, from planning and organizing a one-time photo expedition for a magazine shoot to selling one's work to a nature stock agency.
The book provides extensive coverage of digital production, file management, e-mail/Internet distribution and other competitive tools of the digital age. Written in a tone that appeals both to serious pros and thrill seekers and spiced with multiple anecdotes from the author's own excursions, this versatile companion combines photographic competence and fun at its best.
