A new book, edited by Clive Woodyear, aims to provide inspiration for photographers. Within the book experienced and successful photographers talk about how and why they created their images.
Great photographs come from a passion and emotional connection to the subject, and the time and effort taken translate the photographer's vision into an image. This involves a commitment to photography, and a willingness to learn, not just from your mistakes, but also from the work of others. This new book introduces readers to the work of over fifty outstanding photographers.
Each photographer's work is accompanied by their explanation of how and why they chose to make their image and information such as what motivates their photography. The camera and settings information are provided alongside the images.
The book is divided into sections that include architecture and cityscapes, documentary and reportage, fashion and beauty, landscapes and seascapes, macro, natural world and wildlife, night and long exposure, people and portraits, sport and street.
Contributing photographers are: Adam Pretty, Adrian Dennis, Alexey Titarenko, Andy Ford, Anthony Weller, Arno Rafael Minkkinen, Art Wolfe, Bernd Opitz, Brent Stirton, Bruce Barnbaum, Bruce Percy, Christian Åslund, Christian Vizl, Christie Goodwin, Christopher Burkett, Claire Takacs, Daniel Beltra, Darren Heath, David Ward, Don Komarechka, Fernando Guerra, Frans Lanting, Harry Borden, Helen Bartlett, Jari Peltomäki, Jingna Zhang, Joe Cornish, John Huet, Kevin Mullins, Lois Greenfield, Lynn Saville, Maciej Dakowicz, Marcus Bleasdale,Mark Pain, Michael Clark, Nenad Saljic, Nils Jorgensen, Olivier Grunewald, Paul Nicklen, Paul Walker, Paulette Tavormina, Rachael Hale McKenna, Ralph Gibson , Ralph Perou, Ron Haviv, Ross Hoddinott, Sacha Specker, Spencer Murphy, Steve Bloom, Steven Dalton, Thomas Shahan, Tim Bret-Day, Tim Clayton, Toby Smith, Tom Stoddart, Troy Paiva, Werner Bollmann and Wolf Ademeit.
