This book is a little gem that anyone who's interested in adventure sports photography should take a look at.
Equipment is covered in detail before the book moves on to basic composition tips and lighting advice. The book then becomes more specific, focusing on particular activities and locations.
Tom has really shared a lot over the course of the title both in words and inspirational imagery. The language is easy to understand and the title's layout makes it even easier to work through.
Photographers of all levels will find something they can use in this book and those who aren't interested in this sort of photography might even find themselves curious to try and capture some of the types of shots shown throughout the title. If you don't fancy going on an adventure there are tips in this book that can be applied to other areas of photography so it's still worth a look even if heading out on a ski slope or canoeing down a river really isn't your thing.
It's an interesting title that covers many areas of adventure sports photography in a relatively short space of time. The price could be a touch high, particularly if this type of photography isn't your main focus, but this doesn't mean it's not worth reading.
