    Best photography book -- EVER!

    I was delighted to learn George Lepp had written a new book. I just received a copy and have read it cover to cover. Unlike his other excellent books, Beyond the Basics I, Beyond the Basics II and his definitive book on the California poppy, this new work provides insight into the professional world of outdoor photography and takes readers on adventures to far-flung places that most of us only dream about photographing.

    Lepp writes for amateur and professional outdoor photographers who want to learn new techniques that will improve their images. Lepp's books are always designed for easy, interesting and enjoyable reading with his photographs generously used throughout to illustrate his concepts. George Lepp's wife, Kathy Vincent Lepp, co-author for the new book has added a new depth, sparkle and intimacy into the workings of George Lepp's work - the work that has been on the covers of some of the world's best known publications.

    It's one thing to have a book with lots of pictures and descriptions of f-stops and ISO settings, but it is far more profound to have a book for photographers and lovers of photography that has given voice to the thinking and the experiences behind the photos. "Wildlife Photography, Stories From the Field" is not a nuts and bolts book about where to stand and how to set up a shot. It is about how to be a photographer. Its not about the mechanical tripping of the shutter, it's about the passion that drives Lepp to take the picture. Many people think a good photo is just a matter of "f-8 and being at the location, and gee, I could do that too." But it's far more as this book chronicles so well.

    Kathy Lepp has shared the trips with George. She has shared the experiences and has been part of the discussions about photographic ethics. She has experienced and been a partner to how the photos get made and under what circumstances. As a result she has been able to express Lepp's passion and concerns about his sense of place and his love of wild things - places, animals, plants and the interaction between Lepp and his thousands of subjects.

    George Lepp is one of the most renowned outdoor photographers in America and is known for his outstanding ability to capture the wild, whether it is in the vast deserts of Africa, the ice fields of Antarctica or the mysterious magic of a snow flake.

    As a photographer, I have found George Lepp's techniques easy to use and have gotten fabulous results because of his advice. This new book is about his drive and philosophy - his passion and knowledge, and sometimes the serendipity that can make a single good photograph, a masterpiece. I will be a better photographer as a result.

    George and Kathy Lepp have created a book that will be of great value to its readers. I highly recommend it, it is a joy to read.

    Highly Recommended, a must

    While Lepp's "How To" has been skillfuly covered in previous volumns, here he shows his passion and respect for his subjects and their environs. To be savored over time not chugged like the daily sports scores.

    Excellent book, enjoyable read

    George and Kathryn Lepp's new book is fantastic and another must-read from the duo. Whether or not you are familiar with George from his years of great and accessible columns in Outdoor Photographer you will enjoy this book. The same easily read and enjoyed style from the columns is present in the book while the in depth exploration of wildlife and the world of outdoor photography will really keep you interested.

    George's amazing photos keep you turning the pages and following the prose, which is an excellent balance of practical and technical advice. Instead of being hit over the head with technical details, you will learn some technical tips in easily digestible form while adding in a lot of great information about wildlife and nature.

    Thank you George and Kathryn for a great book and an enjoyable read. One of the few photo books I actually read and was engaged with from start to finish.
