Book Description

Footprint Travel Photography is all you will ever need to improve your photography, no matter where the location. The revised and extensively improved second edition, written by leading travel photographer Steve Davey, takes you from the vital preparation and selecting of equipment, to the ins and outs of being on the road.

Broken down by technique and photography style, rather than destination, the layout of this book makes it easy for you to decide what kind of picture you're trying to take and find, at a glance, the right techniques for you - whether you are at a local beauty spot or thousands of miles from home.

- exhaustively covers the technical and practical aspects of travel photography before looking at how to tweak and improve your pictures on a computer, and includes a section for those who would like to make some money out of their hobby.

- has been fully revised and updated to reflect developments in technology, the latest software releases, including Lightroom 5 and Photoshop Creative Cloud and to encompass Steve Davey's new travel and photographic experiences

- emphasises techniques for taking wonderful photos, no matter where you are in the world

- features an extensive inspiration section, giving hints and tips for all picture taking scenarios

- is ideal for all levels, from beginner to advanced

More About the Author

Although he is now getting old and his beard (when unshaven) is going grey and makes him resemble a badger, Steve Davey is insanely optimistic and believes that the best of life is always in front of him. A writer and photographer based in London, Steve has turned his day job into a way of life. He travels compulsively and is in love with the chaos of being on the road. A self-confessed crap sightseer, he is more interested in how places work and often how they don't, than visiting monuments and museums. He would also rather be told he resembles Jean Reno than a badger and is working on immoral ways to use this to his own advantage.

Steve's work has appeared in magazines, books and newspapers all over the world. He is the author and principal photographer of Unforgettable Places to See Before You Die published by BBC Books. This bestselling title has sold over 300,000 copies and has some 30 co-editions around the world. A second title Unforgettable Islands to Escape to Before You Die, was published in 2007, and involved Steve catching 99 flights in a year and flying the equivalent of over seven times around the world.

2013 saw Steve publish two books; Around the World in 500 Festivals (Kuperard, 2013) and a second edition of Footprint Travel Photography. To complement the first edition of this book, Steve launched a unique series of travel photography tours and London courses.

Steve accompanies all of the tours providing his unique blend of tailored tuition, encouragement and boundless enthusiasm. Forthcoming destinations include Uzbekistan, Jordan and the Arctic. You can see more about these on

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I received this book in the mail today and already I can't speak highly enough about it. Steve's writing is straightforward and he explains the more technical aspects of photography in a clear and approachable manner. The images included in the book are beautiful and complemented by Steve's explanations of the stories behind the shot. Steve's mastery of his subject - all things travel photography - is evident from the first page to the last. Informative and engaging, this is a fantastic book for enthusiastic amateurs like me, as well as those with greater experience. I'm totally inspired to keep shooting as often as possible, and I can't wait to use Steve's book as a guide to increase my knowledge, technique and image quality.

After reading this book, you will wish that you could re-do every memorable trip that you have ever set out on, this time with your eyes wide open, equipped with the knowledge, understanding and confidence needed to capture exceptional shots.

Steve is a great communicator, not only photographically, but through his writing as well - he unassumingly puts himself in other's shoes, teaches you to see the world through different eyes and to respectfully interact with other cultures in a way in which everyone ends up better off, he openly shares all those aspects of photography and travel that have made the biggest difference to his journey and to yours to come.

Choosing a travel photography book can be totally overwhelming, but you only have to flick through this book to realize just how much you still have to learn and how much of the world is waiting to be discovered...You won't regret it, but it will give you itchy feet!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb travel photographers guide 22 Nov 2013
I bought the original version of this book some years ago and was amazed at the quality of the images. What makes this book stand out from others is the supporting informative chapters explaining how the images were taken, leading on to more advanced techniques in later chapters covering all aspects of travel photography. A must for any would be travel photographer who wants to improve their photography skills and capture similar wonderful images. Being a size in between A4 and A5 makes it very easy to take on your travels.
