Product Description


"one of the most comprehensive titles ever written on the subject" -- Outdoor Photographer Magazine, May 2005

From the Author

When I set out to write this book, I was very aware that there were already plenty of "how to" books on bird photography. The idea behind making this book different, was to simply write down, what it is I do, and show the results. The whole ethos of the book is to get out in the field and take pictures, as creatively as possible, and not to get bogged down with equipment and computers etc. They are all essential tools, but the greatest asset at your disposal is your imagination, and through words and pictures I have tried to convey this. The second half of the book is a site guide, covering various locations that I have visited around the globe. I have written this guide from personal experience.

Inspiring and Depressing 7 April 2008
By Mark Kotanchek - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The new DSLRs and vibration reduction lenses finally makes digi-birding viable since you can head out the door and shoot reasonably good hand-held photos. Tipling is my favorite bird photography author. (I have all his books and regularly check in on his blog, [...]) He is truly an artist with his shot compositions.

This is inspiring in the sense that you see what is possible and you want to get out into the field and depressing in the sense that you realize how high the bar is to achieve great.

Tipling is also an excellent writer as he lays out his guidance for composition, traveling and destinations. The photos he uses to illustrate various points are incredible and the extended captions are insightful as well.

This is a must-have book.

This is a great book for anyone looking for new and exotic locations for bird photography. It gives locations all over the world and includes many excellent images of birds that can be found in those regions. And the author gives his tips and techniques to capture these beautiful images as well as some insight to these birds and their behavior. Very well done!

I liked this book and read it all. I now can dream about far away places to visit to do birding that before I had no inkling of. Nice pictures, good organization and good quality at a fair price~~
