Photography Demystified: Your Guide to the World of Travel Photography—How to Explore, See, and Photograph the World

This is a book written for those that love to travel, explore, adventure, and photography. Many photographers wanting to embark on a photographic adventure are not sure where exactly to begin. Often they find themselves asking not only photography technique questions but also seeking practical advice—How should I pack my gear? What’s the best way to take my cameras and equipment on an airplane safely? What about getting through security in a foreign country, how does that work? And other questions related to traveling and carrying photography equipment.

This book will help you and your gear get to your destinations practically and safely. I present what I have learned through years of travel and leading photographic tours. Additionally, the travel photographer will receive specific insight into creating photographs of their travels that are both stunning and captivating, in terms of the stories they tell.

Photography Demystified – For Kids!: A Kids Guide and Parents Resource for Fun and Learning Photography Together!

This book is specifically designed for parents to read and follow with their children to create a fun-filled bond and hobby within the family. Many of the projects can be done even with the simplest of cameras, including those in smartphones.

Most photography books are not appropriate for children because they concentrate on technical information to such an extent that children’s “joy” and “wonder” of depicting the world through photographs get lost in all the “photo jargon” of shutter speeds and F-stops. So, that’s not what you’ll find in this book.

My philosophy is that children need the freedom to be able to “see” and “share” how they see, and their wonder of it all should be acknowledged in a safe and non-critical way, first and foremost.
