Since I am a self-taught photographer, I learn through reading books by those who possess far more experience, knowledge and technical skills than I. My photography library is extensive and is authored by some of the most outstanding historical and present day photographers worldwide. Jeff Clow's Dirt Cheap Guide to Grand Teton National Park is my very favorite photography book, not only because its subject has stolen my heart but also because it is written as if Jeff were standing beside me, one-on-one, telling me about the places to be and the times to be there in order to make my Tetons experience more rewarding.

My husband and I made our first trip to the Tetons last year and my only regret is that I did not own Jeff's book then because I could have utilized the little time we had there much more efficiently. I researched the most popular photography spots and wrote an itinerary prior to our vacation but still missed many places I would love to have photographed. Jeff is very generous with information on locations and the most optimum times in which to shoot. Sprinkled liberally throughout the book are Jeff's photographs of the area which are breathtakingly beautiful and will further whet your appetite to see this wondrous place with your own eyes. Now that I'm armed with Jeff's book as my personal guide, I cannot wait to return to the Tetons and try to reclaim that part of my heart which was left behind!

Congratulations on this wonderful book, Jeff, and thank you for your willingness to share so much. I wholeheartedly give this book the highest rating and recommend it to anyone interested in the magic of photography ~ not only will you learn from it, you will love it for its beauty!

I have followed Jeff on flickr for a number of years and been impressed with the excellence of his work and his supportive comments on my postings - not something that you necessarily expect as an amateur. When I saw his e-book I immediately bought it. I have always admired Jeff's pictures from the Grand Teton's. What I found as I walked through the book was a master journey in photography. It was as if I was on a field trip with the expert sharing with me alone, all of his trade secrets to make a grand composition. I started to think about when I would make a trip to the area. Then I realized that I could apply his teachings where I am. So all of you photographers get the book whether your are going there or not - it is an inspired piece of work sharing all the tips of the trade written in a straight forward manner. You will read and see the book like a novel and you will be much the better for having taken the time to make the E-Book journey. Finally you will have a wonderful reference text for you next shoot shown in pictures, composition, settings and wise words. Thanks so much Jeff, for sharing in such a forthright manner.

I have long been a fan of Jeff's on Flickr, the Yahoo Photo sharing site [...]. I learned about his book not from him, but from a mutual photographer friend, Deby Dixon ([...]). I immediately bought the book so I could read it on my trip to Glacier (I know, I know -- the book is about the Tetons, not Glacier, but that's where I was going at the time). This book does what a lot of photographers won't do -- it gives away secrets! It's a wonderful guide not only to where to shoot, but also has tips on how and when to shoot each special scene. It's filled with beautiful color photos Jeff has taken. (Note: I love my Kindle, but am so glad I got the iPad version of this book -- those photos deserve to be shown in full glorious color!) Jeff is a great photographer and is also a kind and generous commenter on Flickr. I feel lucky to be among his list of contacts and luckier still that I have this book. Can't wait to go to the Tetons to try out all his wonderful suggestions!

I met Jeff through Flickr and Texas Photo Forum (now Pixtus) and hit it off with him immediately. Fortunately, I had the pleasure of accompanying him on each tour he has had so far to the Tetons and each of them has been unique and filled with information about the area and the history of it.

Even though I had been there several times and knew Jeff personally, I purchased his book anyway. Sure, I may have gone to most of the places in his book but there were many many little nuggets of information that I either missed or was too busy to hear while I was being blown away by the beauty of the area.

Here's the real reason to buy this book... it keeps you from wasting your time! If you go to Jackson Hole, rent a car, and venture out on your own, you'll be able to hit some sights and maybe even see some wildlife if you're lucky. But you'll barely be able to come across 10% of what is in Jeff's book. It's a total time saver and what's $10?!!! You can't even get a bison burger at Dornan's for $10... what's Dornan's?... oh, it's in the book. If you want to do it all own your own and want to waste your time... then this book isn't for you. If you want to maximize your time and know exactly where to go and when to go there to get the best images possible, this book is exactly what you need! You're wasting time still reading this review... just buy the book already!

More About the Author

Hi I'm Jeff Clow - and I've recently written a book for photographers who visit Grand Teton National Park in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

I'm a self taught professional photographer that has been leading photo tours of the area around the Tetons for the last several years. Over the years I've gotten hundreds of emails requesting advice on where to go and what to shoot when people visit Grand Teton National Park. Thus, the book is both a guide and a labor of love.

I sometimes consider myself the accidental pro because six years ago I was simply using a point and shoot camera and taking photos of my family. But then I started uploading to a photo sharing site online and some kind soul commented on my photos and that made me want to become a better photographer. I read and read and shot and shot and after making every mistake a rookie can make, I started getting better.

Fast forward to today and now I've had my photos published globally on book covers, magazines, albums and many, many advertisements. But I'm still the same guy who enjoys photography and wants to share what I've learned about wildlife, landscape and nature photography with others. I have been told by my readers that they like my conversational approach to writing and they like the fact that I do not go into minute esoteric detail about photography. What they tell me I do well in the book is simply help them take better photos when they visit Jackson Hole.

I hope you'll download a sample chapter and see if my book might prove helpful to you as well.
