About the Author
Praise For National Geographic Ultimate Field Guide to Travel Photography…
“ The information and advice it contains is so well presented and immediately applicable to most everyone who uses a camera out-of-doors or on “on the road” that it should be considered as a “must read” for all concerned. Furthermore, the inspiration it is capable of providing goes well beyond the objective sum of the techniques its author presents in its pages…For this more than perhaps all else, the reader of this book will profoundly thank Mr. Stuckey, National Geographic, and all who contributed to it with each improvement they notice in their own future photographic work.” –The Well-read Naturalist
