Picture of Travel Photography Masterclass
Publisher's Description
With Developing Vision and Style, Working the Light and Finding the Picture, Argentum have established a series of Masterclasses that explain the principles of creative photography. In this new title, eight of the world’s most successful photographers share advice, insights and tips on travel photography, based on their own experiences of photographing in locations throughout the world. It’s never been easier either to travel worldwide, or to take the photographs that document those travels. But how, whether we are visiting the temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, the towering mountains of Yosemite National Park in America, or the neon-lit skyscrapers of Hong Kong, can we produce an interpretation that is distinctly our own? With contributions from Joe Cornish, David Ward, Charlie Waite, Paul Harris and others, readers will learn how to get the best from each location they visit by considering matters such as the season, climate, time of day, and of course local cultures and customs. Divided into chapters on Landscape, People, Architecture and Nature, this book provides expert advice and invaluable insights covering every area of travel photography. There are also detailed critiques of a wide variety of images, of the kind that are given at a photography workshop. In fact, this book is the next best thing to attending a workshop! Joe Cornish, Charlie Waite and David Ward are the leading landscape photographers in Britain today.

Picture of Education of a Photographer
Publisher's Description
In a world where there are millions and millions of images made and produced everyday, it is imperative that students of photography step back to analyze and understand what they are doing, what came before, what strategies were used, and how photographers think and work.

With their new book The Education of a Photographer, co-editors Charles H. Traub, Adam B. Bell and Steve Heller intend to bring inspiration and insight to everyone who engages or is interested in lens-based media. It offers 51 essays and interviews by a talented group of industry renowned photographers, teachers, and thinkers. From the early twentieth-century masters to the postmoderns and on to today’s incisive visionaries, this thought-provoking book will navigate the reader through the varied landscape of photography, eloquently expressing what it means to be a photographer today.

Co-editor Steven Heller says, “the authors and interviewees were selected for their reputations and experience, and the writings were chosen for how effectively they could educate even the knowledgeable.” The diverse group of writers and photographers include: Berenice Abbott, Robert Adams, Diane Arbus, Wendell Berry, Elizabeth Biondi, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Alexey Brodovitch, Harry Callahan, Sarah Charlesworth, Charlotte Cotton, Gregory Crewdson, Yolanda Cuomo, Tim Davis, Rachael Dunville, Dave Eggers, Vilém Flusser, Stephen Frailey, Lee Friedlander, Peter Galassi, Helen Gee, Luigi Ghirri, Ralph Hattersley, Daile Kaplan, William Klein , Max Kozloff, Ken Light, Vera Lutter, Nathan Lyons, Peter MacGill, Ralph Eugene Meatyard, Susan Meiselas, Lisette Model, László Moholy-Nagy, Vik Muniz, Cynthia Oznick, Brian Palmer, Irving Penn, Robert Pledge, Kerry William Purcell, Alexander Rodchenko, Leo Rubinfien, Shelley Rice, Stephen Shore, Aaron Siskind, Clarissa Sligh, Larry Sultan, Mary Virginia Swanson, John Szarkowski, Gael Towey, Penelope Umbrico, Jeff Wall, Randy West , Minor White, Garry Winogrand.

Photographer Harry Callahan says in his interview with co-editor Charles Traub, “ I still don’t think you can teach anyone to be creative. All you can do is give them an environment.” Teaching photographer Gregory Crewdson adds that, “one of the great things about photography is that it’s a conduit to almost everything. Photographs are a currency of our culture and that, unlike other mediums in art...photography is accessible and democratic in a way that the other forms of art aren’t. It’s really important to understand not only the tradition of art photography and that history, but it’s also equally important to understand how photographs exist in our culture, and understand how art photographs relate or do not relate to other forms of popular culture like advertising, fashion, and film.”

Co-editor Adam B. Bell sums it up best saying that, “The Education of a Photographer offers advice and a few signposts for the photographer who is beginning this journey, but the real education of any photographer lies in taking the risks, pursuing one’s passions, looking and, above all, making the work.”
