Written by a full-time nomadic photographer, "Before The Shutter" features a collection of inspiring travel photographs and 6500 words of great tips and insight gained during a year long photography road trip around the USA.

The book helps outdoor, travel and landscape photographers get the most out their next photography excursion by walking through the planning stages and all the necessary steps that happen before you take the shot.

Creating a timeless image has as much to do with the work that went in to the photograph long before the shutter was pressed as it has to do with what happened on the scene. This book will help you make sure you are ready for your next photo trip by preparing for and planning an award-winning photograph.

Highlights include researching locations, your creative vision, trip planning, what to pack, location scouting, and creating a shot list.

Because great photographs shouldn't be left to chance!
