Morello talks about what to photograph, compares tours versus going it alone, discusses equipment from the simplest to pretty fancy stuff, covers exposure and composition, and even talks about airports and packing. His pictures profusely illustrate the book, and should serve as both inspiration and source of ideas. Based on the traveling I've done, the author is right on the money and I wish I had had his advice before quarreling with a gate agent in Florida who wouldn't let me take my camera bag into the cabin. (Morello:"you are at the mercy of the people you are dealing with, smile, be nice and pack your bag as though it is going to be taken from you.")
The book is aimed at the beginner and deals with the subjects slowly and gently. The chapter on the use of the histogram is only three pages that might appear simplistic to an old hand and yet will lay a foundation for the beginner to understand how to adjust exposure.
The author's writing is easy going and I found it, dare I say it about a photography book, charming.

Another great quality of this book, which must be emphasized properly, is the easy-going language that Steve uses to deliver his advice. It's simple, effective, and direct, and it makes for a very relaxing reading.
Not being an expert myself I am not sure how satisfying his technical advice is for a sophisticated professional photographer, but for me, as an avid amateur photographer, they meant a huge lot; I have got great advice from this book, which translated immediately into photographs of a much higher quality, and an overall better photography experience. I strongly recommend this book to photography amateurs with a penchant for the outdoors and wildlife photography.
If you travel, love nature, and take pictures this book is a must have. Yes, that simple.
Travel Photography has a wonderful sound to it ... you travel, you take pictures. Sounds great. Sounds simple. Not really. This book goes behind the scenes and talks about what it takes to be a working travel photographer. Get it before you take your next trip.
