Books I've read (or am reading) and recommend
This book is largely about the creative process. I’m a huge advocate for understanding the creative process and how it applies to your photographs. I’m not finished read it just yet but I am greatly enjoying it. I have been highlighting SO MUCH as I go along… 🙂
This is probably one of my favorite “stand bys” as I have used it for years in my Advanced Dgital Photography class at the university. Sometimes Barr goes seemingly a bit off the deep end, but it’s always enlightening to understand his thoughts and he always has some commentary by the photographers too which is always a delight to read.
Paul Theroux is my most favorite travel writer of all time. I’m only showing the first book of his that I read so many years ago. It also brought the Nation of Croatia to my attention. I’ve read all of his travel books. They are perfect for getting a feel for what it means to be a traveler vs. a tourist!
Rick has published two books recently, this one and Photo Therapy. Plus, he came on the show and talked about them. They are excellent books for motivating you to not only get out there and shoot more, but to look at your work and find ways to stretch and improve.

Recommended by Sara. This book simply looks amazing, but I think the cover image certainly helps! Photography is an adventure in and of itself, but here, Corey shares the stories behind the scenes as he photographs climbers, adventureres, skiers and more. It’s filled with photography tips, outdoor lessons, a bit on the business side of photography and lessons learned about human nature along the way. I think this will be on my short list very soon!
