As a younger outdoor shooter this book is a great resource for me. It's really awesome to have all the info in a single place. After reading the book and getting some time in, I think the information here is enough to get any hard-working and creative photographer up to speed with any of the professional shooters out there. Ultimately, buying this book doesn't make bad light good, but it gives you the information to go ahead and put in the work, knowing that if you follow the methods Michael describes you'll come away with a end product you - and hopefully your clients - can be proud of.

I'm a cinematographer by trade and even though this book is geared more towards the stills set, I still find it 90% applicable to what I'm doing in the outdoors.

I just got done reading Michael's excellent new book, and he has done a fantastic job. Not only does he talk about the tools and techniques for getting great shots in various adventure sports (climbing, kayaking, etc), but he details out his approach, how he plans to get the shots he needs, and how he reacts when things change - and they change a lot in the activities Michael shoots.

However, the best he saves for last in the final 3 chapters - all very unique and incredibly valuable. The first section is all about 'adventure portraiture', something I have not seen before and he talks about how to take a great portrait in less than ideal circumstances :-). The last 2 sections Michael shares his tips, knowledge and recommendations for aspiring photographers who want to turn pro. He has some fantastic information, and great references, and the final 2 interviews (with Corey Rich and Sabine Meyer) should help any person who wants to turn pro. Michael shares all of his knowledge, tips, tricks to help and inspire folks who may want to pursue their dreams, and he lets them know not only can it be done (with a TON of hard work), but shows how it might be done.

All in all, highly recommended.

Just finished this adventure photography book by Michael Clark. He's a great photographer and also a very pragmatic writer and teacher. The book is well-written, well-illustrated, and contains a TON of information. This is a great publication for the money. Can't wait to put some of his ideas to use. If you're serious about outdoor photographer, whether or not you want to make a dime at it, this book is a must.
