Meet the Author

Jim Harmer is an award-winning photographer and author of three photography instructional books. Each of the books are written in a series entitled "Improve Your Photography."


Mr. Harmer, originally from Boise, Idaho, currently lives in Naples, Florida and enjoys photographing the beautiful oceanscapes and wildlife that Florida has to offer.


The author practices a wide range of photographic techniques and subjects, but specializes in HDR and nature photography.


In 2010, Mr. Harmer changed from Canon to Nikon. This allows him to teach photography to students who use either brand. Also, Mr. Harmer favors the consistently superior low-light performance of Nikon cameras.


In his personal life, Mr. Harmer is a full-time law student, husband, father of two children, and a Mormon.


Mr. Harmer's first book, "Improve Your Photography: How budding photographers can get pro results" sold rapidly throughout the world for its ability to explain the basic concepts of photography in a way that is simple to understand.


Subsequent to the first book, the author wrote "Improve Your HDR Photography" and then "Improve Your Wildlife Photography." All of Mr. Harmer's books are written in a casual writing style so as to aid readers in understanding difficult concepts without struggling to understand the author's language.

    Not recommended.

    No table of contents, no index, no camera settings for photos - stock photos or others (the sources for the latter are not identified), depth of subject matter and content is very shallow. The author apparently thinks it’s okay to “Stand up from your hiding place, wave your arms, etc.” so you can get a picture of the animal looking at you (see page 11). Apparently he’s from the school (and there are lots of them out there including some big name publications and photographers) that are okay with manufacturing the final wildlife picture by combining 2 (or more) unrelated photos (page 64 & 65). Gave the book an unearned star.

    Fantastic book, considering there aren't many books on this topic.

    Good information. I like that the author tells you what gear is good and what's crap. Not too many books on this subject.

    Good practical info

    This was a pretty okay book. I liked the explanations on where to find good locations to shoot wildlife and how to get sharper shots. Lots of tips in here that I hadn't seen before. I wish it were a little longer.
