I was prepared not to like this book. I mean, what could an automobile club teach me about photography? Then I saw that the author was Tom Fitzharris, a noted nature photographer, so I decided to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised.

The book starts out with a chapter on photographic equipment and technique , and then proceeds with separate chapters on 22 of the major national parks. The book claims that it is aimed at both beginners and experts, but I'm always skeptical of such claims. Once again, I was wrong.

Consider the first chapter on Photography Essentials. The techniques described are indeed essential if one expects to take better than average pictures in the national parks. The beginner may indeed be a little awed by what the author considers essential, but he will learn where there are holes in his knowledge. I would recommend reading John Shaw's "Nature Photography Field Guide" if you want to get a better understanding of technique. More advanced photographers will use the first chapter as a checklist.

The author recognizes that many of the shots are classic shots that appear on calendars and postcards but says that the individual photographer's variations will make the pictures worth taking. He also suggests that the reader study the author's photographs for ideas on how to handle different subjects and I think that's good advice.

I was very interested in the chapters on parks where I had photographed. I found that not only was Fitzharris quite comprehensive, but he even suggested some places to go to that I had not visited, and some approaches I had not tried, even in parks I thought I knew well. I wish I had had this book before visiting some of those parks. I also know I may visit a few parks because they are in Fitzharris' book.

I have a few minor quibbles. Fitzharris suggested visiting Yosemite before June and shooting early in the morning and late in the afternoon to avoid crowds. It's good advice but the last time I was there in May at 6:30 PM at Tunnel View, there were fourteen tripods set up with crossed legs by photographers making an homage to Ansel Adams. I suppose that's better than it would be at 3:00 PM on a July day, but some of the hot spots suggested by the author will always be crowded.

The author makes no reference to digital photography, but I don't consider that much of a problem. The book is aimed at getting you to the best spots in the major national parks, and creating the best composition. That doesn't change very much with digital photography.

My biggest complaint about this book was that it only covers 22 of the national parks. I wanted more coverage.

Mr. Fitzharris takes you on a tour of a large list of National Parks and tells you where the best spots for pictures are and tells you how he shot the photos in each park.This man is my favorite nature/landscape photographer and I have improved my photography many times over reading his books.I now own 7 of his books.He rally goes into detail on how to shoot great pictures right down to which is the best type of equipment to use for this type of photography.His photos are the best in the business.

In addition to being an excellent landscape/nature photographer, Tim Fitzharris is an accomplished writer. This is a very comprehensive book with lots of details on the parks, the best times to visit, and, of course, the best photo opportunities. The only slight negative is that this was written in the days (not too long ago) of film, therefore, there are no comments relative to digital photography. My interest was more in the area of learning about the parks so this did not really bother me. There are plenty of general books and articles on digital landscape photography, if you need that additional dimension. I heartily recommend this book.

This book is full of beneficial information, however I already had the Audubon Guide by the same author. I was hoping this would have some different or additional information. As it turns out it is exactly the same book. In any case it's a good source of information. Just don't buy both.

If you're a photography enthusiast aspiring to visit the beautiful places in this world, this is a wonderful book. I'm a big fan of Tim Fitzharris books and this is another example of his excellent contribution to the field. After reading this book (and referencing it numerous times), I find myself wanting to go to every one of these national parks.

This book is a very welcomed book to my array of exceptional books giving reference to location photography! I can not wait to give the book a try in locations listed!

I love this book. I will take it with me when I visit these spots, as it has all the information I need, such as locations to get the best shots and many suggestions for getting the best shot. I look forward to adding additional books by Tim Fitzharris to my library.
This book is so beautiful and so inspiring that, after reading it, I made a plan to visit 24 national parks over the next four years. (So far I have been to Yosemite... but I still have hope to get to the other 23).

Bottom line, Tim is a truly amazing nature and wildlife photographer. His images alone will inspire and motivate you to make a travel plan like I did. What's more, his ability to write far outshines the competition. The book contains useful instruction on general technique, as well as specific advice on when and where to go in each park. His text is filled with practical, helpful tips - the kind of information you would really use. I found myself jotting down notes again and again as I read through his advice and instructions.

If you are a nature lover and photography enthusiast... if you find yourself at your greatest place of peace and tranquility when you visit our national parks, you'll love this book. It's a true gem.
