Poor Excuse for a Photographer's Guide 21 Aug. 2006
By Robert Greer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book in the hope of finding just a few helpful tips on photographing the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Although the introduction made some great promises, the rest of this short work didn't live up to its title. Instead of providing any information on the popular South Rim area of the Grand Canyon, the author (John Annerino) focused on obscure, difficult to reach locations. And although I concede that some photographers might find it useful to know about these distant locations, I found Annerino's information terse and lacking even in those areas. For the popular South Rim area, there is a complete lack of information. I was looking for a book that contained some basic observations as to which locations might be best for sunrise and sunset photography. This book didn't contain any of that information. From the photographs found in this book, John Annerino appears to have a nice portfolio of Grand Canyon photography. However, I found the book a poor excuse for a "Photographer's Guide." Don't waste your money. You can glean more information from the "Frommer's Grand Canyon National Park" or from a short search of the Internet.

Nice images of the canyon in the book but save your money. 19 April 2009
By valerie Lockwood - Published on Amazon.com
I have to fully agree with the first review of this book. The book is filled with very nice photography images. If you are visiting the canyon for many weeks and are an excellent hiker the information in the book is very useful. However, if you are just the "average" visitor for a few days to the canyon then buy a very good travel guide book and just enjoy taking photographs as you go through your own journey of the Grand Canyon. Don't waste your money on this book. Chances are you will never make it to most of the places in the book anyway!

Not For Tourists! 2 Jan. 2011
By Nikon1234 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was written by long time Grand Canyon hiker, river runner, and climber. The book is about finding good places in (often remote) areas of the park. There are some places close to the South Rim Village included as well.

The comments about the book are too harsh and, to me, reflect the limitaitons of the photographers, i.e. the illogical expectation that getting out of their car in the busiest locations to take a few Ansel Adams quality images should be possible. Maybe it is for the best photgraphers out there, but this is missing the point of John's book. There is a whole lot more to seeing the Grand Canyon than standing shoulder to shoulder at Hopi Point for sunset. Dismissing this book because the author travels extensively throughout the canyon is narrow minded and short sighted. He is willing to share his favorite places throughout the Grand Canyon. Pick one of them and break from the crowd...see what the Grand Canyon is really about!

My View of this book 10 Sept. 2012
By Frank Ritenour - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have bought several photography books for locations and this is the worst one. It offered little on photographing locations and not much of the time of day for the best shot. I do not recommend it.
It is a fraud! 15 Jun. 2014
By Edu Moreira - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought several books "photographer's guide to xyz". Some excellent and all the others quite good. This book is by far the worst one. Don't by it. It is a fraud!!! First it doesn't cover just the Grand Canyon area but all the vast Colorado River plateau. Considering this the book title mislead the reader to something that it is just a small part of it. Second, it could be considered an interesting story book about those more than thirty places covered by the book, but not a photographer's guide. It presents roughly the places where you can take pictures and nothing on how to take them. Third, not all places included in the book have a picture to show how the author took a good picture there. More than that, places like Desert View, Yavapai Point and Hermits Rest have no picture of them. Just to give an example, Hermits Rest covers 2 pages of the book and... 3 lines dedicated to photography... and no picture of it!! "You can photograph the view from Hermits Rest and the scenic vistas leading to it"!!! To get this kind of advice I don't need a book! Please, I want my money back!!!
