What People Are Saying

“My wife and I just returned from 5 days in Death Valley and found it to be an amazing place for photography. I want to thank you for writing such a terrific guide to the park. Your photos are stunning and your advice and recommendations were incredibly helpful. They helped me look for things that I never would have had I not had your book. I had other photographer’s guide books to Death Valley, but really didn’t need them once I had yours. Thank you again for preparing such a great tool for photographers like me.”


“I just purchased your ebooks on Death Valley and Iceland… I’m always looking for a guide to help me plan my photo trips. Even a simple guide from a landscape photographer helps a lot. Your ebooks go beyond a simple guide. You saved me a tremendous amount of planning!!! There is no way I could have researched the amount of information on my own. I have been compiling information on my Death Valley trip for the past year. I feel comfortable deleting the entire file and using your ebook.”


“I just returned about a week ago from an incredibly successful and utterly enjoyable camping and photography trip to Death Valley, and the book you guys wrote – Desert Paradise – literally made my trip. It allowed me to spend my limited time on a well-planned and coordinated itinerary of epic locations that held the most promise, and for that I am profoundly grateful. Thanks for all the hard work you guys put into the book!”


“I recently visited Death Valley NP for the first time. Prior to my trip I downloaded your Desert Paradise ebook to aid in my research. You do outstanding work and your book was an invaluable tool for a first time visitor to the park. Over a long weekend, I was able to make many images that I am quite happy with and that’s due in large part to the guidance your e-book offered.”


“I purchased your Desert Paradise ebook a few days ago. I could tell by looking at the first few pages it was exactly what I was looking for and I am eager to read the rest of it and plan a trip to the desert.”
