My newest book is now available for pre-order at amazon, with a hefty discount off the list price. And it should be available at many other locations. Filled with my photos, it's a book that's part instructional and part inspirational. The text offers instructions and tips covering the iconic subjects, including landscape, wildlife, and macro photography. It also covers composition, exposure and equipment, and a variety of other topics. Together, the images and words show how to use a camera to connect artistically with the world around around us.
I supplied many of the photographs (along with photographers like Fritz Lanting and Galen Rowell) as well as the text for this book about the crown jewel of the national parks of the United States.
My first book offers a cornucopia of beautiful locations, some well-known and some obscure, in the northern half of the "Golden State." History and some personal stories of my time on the road accompany my photographs, and there are plenty of detailed directions and maps. Visit places that range from the edge of the Great Desert Basin to the edge of the Pacific Ocean, from volcanoes and snow-capped peaks, from pine forests to tide pools, from historic towns to campgrounds.
The companion to my book about Northern California, this book contains a selection of roads and stories about destinations worth exploring in the southern half of the state, from the mountains, to the desert, to the sea. My photographs will take you to see national and state parks, giant sequoias and wildflowers, sea lions and starfish, castles, churches, cattle ranches and cacti.
