The Travel Photographer’s Way – by NorI Jemil and Bradt Guides

SHORTLISTED IN THE Edward Stanford Travel WRITING AWARDS: Photography Travel Book of the Year

A ground-breaking practical photography book considers not just how to get better images, but also why and when we should take them. It guides the reader to become a more confident and reflective travel photographer, as well as covering the technical know-how they will need.

Taking a journey around the seven continents, each chapter focuses on the main areas of travel imagery, from people and landscape to architecture and adventure. Bite-size advice on how to get the best from your camera is contextualized throughout the The Travel Photographer’s Way so you learn as you go.

Nori’s book is not an attempt to replicate other reference works on the subject, top-loading technical information and addressing an expert reader. Nor does it focus on gadgetry – the proliferation of new hardware means camera-based information can become obsolete quite quickly. Instead it is a travel companion, a book that can be read for the prose and stories, as well as the information it contains.It covers the main elements of travel photography in eleven sections, including advice from some of the best travel photographers working around the world. Technical information is embedded, given in the context of each shot, but personal travel stories are at the heart of every chapter.
