Outdoor Action and Adventure Photography, published by Focal Press, is a dynamic guide offering instruction, tips, and tricks on how to photograph and quickly make decisions within a fast-paced environment. Authored by professional adventure sports photographer, Dan Bailey, this practical guide offers insight on how to quickly react to situations and anticipate how subjects and backgrounds converge in order to convey significant moments in a rightful and evocative way. Among the topics covered in the book, this guide focuses on teaching photographers to think geometrically and pull together visual elements to compose a shot and how to successfully make an image while being in the action, as well as touching on some gear and equipment choices to aid in the process.

  • Advanced skills are taught to aid in developing your own style of action photography and to refine a brand of imagery revolving around your aesthetic and vision.
