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.

If adventure photography is what interests you then this is a great book to start with.

I was tempted to give this book four stars because the wide range of topics meant that each topic could only be covered to a limited depth. After thinking it over I realized that there are so many practical tips and techniques discussed in the core subject of adventure photography that it really deserved five stars. As the author himself says, there are many topics discussed which warrant reading additional books (and taking classes/workshops) to master the wide field of expertise necessary to be an adventure photographer. For instance, the books discusses the author's climbing techniques, lighting, portraiture, the use of Lightroom, the business of photography and many other aspects of this quest for creating the imagery that he does. Each of these topics demands additional study and it would have been unfair to expect this book to cover these topics in depth (the book would then have become a ten volume series).

While the limited depth that certain topics get can be made up by reading other fine works on those subjects, the author gives many practical and specific tips and techniques for photographing specific adventure sports that you probably won't easily find elsewhere.

Considering the wide range of topics covered and specifically the adventure photography specific knowledge discussed, this book is a worthwhile read for those looking to enter the field of adventure photography.
