The Travel Photographer's WayOrdinær pris 289,00 kr
Shortlisted in the Edward Stanford Travel Writing Awards 2022: Photography Travel Book of the Year Nori Jemil's ground-breaking practical photography book considers not just how to get better images, but also why and when to take them. It guides you to becoming a more confident and reflective travel photographer, as well as covering all the technical knowhow needed. Taking a journey around the seven continents, each chapter focuses on the main areas of travel imagery, from people and landscape to architecture and adventure.
Bite-size advice on how to get the best from your camera is contextualised throughout the book, so you learn as you go. Travel photography has exploded across the world thanks to the huge leap in quality of both mobile phone cameras and bridge cameras, as well as the ease of public posting on social media. Award-winning travel photographer Nori Jemil has been riding the wave of these advances and has created a 'how to' guide with a difference.
Her book is not an attempt to replicate other reference works on the subject, top-loading technical information and addressing an expert reader. Nor does it focus on gadgetry - the proliferation of new hardware means camera-based information can become obsolete quite quickly. Instead it is a travel companion, a book that can be read for the prose and stories, as well as the information it contains.
It covers the main elements of travel photography in eleven sections, including advice from some of the best travel photographers working around the world. Technical information is embedded, given in the context of each shot, but personal travel stories are at the heart of every chapter, linked to key travel images as well as the full camera settings and detail of how and why each photo was taken. Nori Jemil is an award-winning photographer, writer, teacher and videographer.
Her work has appeared in publications including National Geographic Traveller, BBC Travel, Adventure.com and Conde Nast Traveller. Over the past decade has won numerous awards, including Travel Photograph of the Year from Wanderlust travel magazine, and Photographer of the Year from the British Guild of Travel Writers.

He returned from the beaches with intimate portraits of the world's best-from the newest talent to the oldest and most revered-and also with dramatic action shots and revealing images of the culture around this sport and lifestyle. The book features not only 300 photographs, but some Q&As with, and hand-written contributions from, prominent figures in the scene.
Ultimately, Waves is an ode to surfing and to the men and women who live it every day.
WaywardOrdinær pris 349,00 kr
Breathtaking photographs and deeply personal stories from a leading surfing and nature photographer, conservation advocate, and social media force Wayward is a collection of striking photographs and the revealing personal stories behind them by one of the leading surf, nature, and adventure photographers of our time. At remote beaches and locales in places like Russia, Norway, Iceland, and the Aleutian Islands, Chris Burkard succumbed to hypothermia, destroyed thousands of dollars' worth of camera gear, and spent a few nights in jail. But in the process, he captured amazing and iconic images that have defined his life's work.
And while millions have seen his photographs in magazines, marketing campaigns for Patagonia, Sony, and others, and via his social media, Burkard has never given a full account of these journeys--until now. With never-before-seen images and the stories behind them, Burkard crafts an original narrative that combines the page-turning drama of a great explorer's adventure story and the immediacy and power of unforgettable photographs. Chronicling both the failures and the successes he has experienced in building a career, Burkard shares an infectious passion for photography, surfing, and chasing dreams in some of the world's most awe-inspiring places.
