Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This substantial and helpful book begins with an overview of the business of travel photography--both the joys and the hard facts--and then moves on to a candid discussion of the skills needed for success in the field. It also covers the essentials of equipment, including cameras, lenses, film, and accessories, as well as topics like technique, notably lighting, and photographing people, landscape, architecture, and still lifes on location. Ten self-assignments will help photographers hone their skills. Also included is good information on editing, assembling a portfolio, and promoting one's work. Travel photographer McCartney also addresses computers, digital imaging, and the Internet for photographers, as well as editorial and stock photography. This will be of obvious value to professional photographers who wish to do more location work. It should also appeal to amateurs who would like to explore travel photography as a serious avocation. Recommended for public and academic libraries.--Raymond Bial, Parkland Coll. Lib., Champaign, IL Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    travel photography book

    This book not only reveals the nuts and bolts of travel photography and is a 'must read' for those interested or planning to become a travel photographer; it is a complete course in general photography. I consider this book one of the most informative that I have read on the subject. Susan McCartney reveals not only how to photograph, what equipment she uses, but also the fine details which most professionals keep to themselves. This book not only should be read, but reread until the material is recorded in one's mind like the tradecraft of any profession. This book certainly deserves five stars.

    An indispensable book for aspiring pros.

    For anyone who has any dreams of selling their work either part time or becoming a full-time travel pro this book is a definite must. But even for those who just want to take their travel photography to a new level this book will provide the information needed to get there. As a full-time travel photographer/writer myself this book was a big inspiration for me and, of all the travel photography books I've read, definitely the most comprehensive and useful. I continually read over it and use it as a resource tool. You won't be disappointed.
