What's in "Photographing the Southwest" First Edition?

Photographing the Southwest is the result of author Laurent Martrès' 20 years of experience in exploring and photographing the Southwest. These guidebooks allow a wide range of people (from car-based families to extreme hikers and from casual point-&-shootists to advanced amateur photographers) to find the best places to see and photograph. The best location, the most beautiful angle and the best time of the day will be just as useful for the non-photographer.

  • Where, when and how! Find the best places, get the best shots!
  • Great information for everyone; no need to be a photographer
  • for car-based families to extreme hikers, point-&-shootists to advanced photographers
  • Lots of travel tips not usually found in traditional guidebooks
  • Valuable tips on composition, exposure and hard-to-shoot scenery
  • Hundreds of locations, including the best spots and how to get there
  • All the major national parks, monuments and state parks
  • Spectacular "off the beaten track" locations outside the parks
  • Rock art and early Native American dwellings
  • Clear and precise indications provided for hard-to-find sites
  • High-quality B&W photographs by eleven top photographers
  • Preface by master photographer Tom Till
How about your CD-ROMs?

It 's very likely you've already planned a general itinerary with the help of a traditional guidebook. The Southwest is so rich in extraordinary landscapes that it's impossible to see them all in one trip, unless you have lots of time on your hands. The PhotoTripUSA™ guidebooks are organized regionally so that you may target a specific geographic area. The CD-ROMs offer additional help in choosing the best location to suit your interests. I strongly encourage you to order them.

How do I know the content is worthwhile?

We are proud of the quality of information contained in the guides and I'm confident it will meet your expectations. We have received hundreds of e-mails thanking us for the quality of the information in our books. We also hear it constantly from people we meet everywhere.. We know you won't be disappointed by the books, however we understand it can be tough to make a decision without holding the actual book in your hand. You can read an entire chapter in the form of a PDF file to get a feel for the quality and depth of these guidebooks.
