Reviews - What do customers think about WORLD'S TOP PHOTOGRAPHERS: LANDSCAPE (The World's Top Photographers)?

Beutiful book  Oct 19, 2007
This is a really beautiful book! Very nice print, beautiful photographs, short biographies of authors and short description of every photo makes it a very nice book for relaxation. Beside that you can learn a lot about landscape photography and be inspired to just get out there and enjoy the photography and landscapes.

The only downside is that when I saw this book I bought the entire series (wildlife, portraits, photojournalism, nudes).
beautiful book  Jun 29, 2007
this really is a treasure of a book. looking through the photos, i feel inspired by the beauty of the earth. almost a spiritual experience.
Inspirational Images of the Natural World  Mar 17, 2007
This is a gorgeous collection of images from some of the leading landscape photographers in the world today, including some well-known photos by the late Galen Rowell. While no book can ever be a substitute for the actual experience of viewing the original prints, as I learned from a few visits to Galen and Barbara Rowell's gallery in Bishop, California, the reproduction quality here is quite high. And some of these images are simply stunning! One of my personal favorites is an image of desert geysers by Michael Fatali where the sun and moon are both present. What an unusual photograph! It was so refreshing to realize that I had never seen most of these photographs before, despite my frequent perusal of photo books. In keeping with the tradition of landscape photography, most of the work here was done in 4x5 or 8x10 format, though there is also a smattering of medium, panoramic, and 35mm formats. This is definitely not a how-to instructional book, but does serve as an excellent source of inspiration for any budding nature photographer. Sure, there are a few omissions of great landscape photographers today, most notably the large format work of Carr Clifton. Nonetheless, this is an outstanding overview of the best landscape work being done today, a small percentage of which is still in black-and-white. As anyone familiar with this art form already knows, the most important quality of a good nature photographer is an obsessional love of the land itself, a love at least strong enough to compel a person to drag themselves out of bed at the most unspeakable hours to be in a position to catch the first rays of dawn. It is interesting and instructive to read the various stories accompanying the photographs that describe the incredible lengths to which these photographers will go in an effort to capture their finest images. Their sheer persistence, patience, and resolve in trekking untold miles to a predetermined location, often in cold and inclement weather with several pounds of large format gear strapped to their backs, can make a rank amateur like myself feel shamefully lazy. If you think you may have an interest in landscape photography and the images in this book do not inspire you to hit the hiking trail, perhaps you should consider selling your camera on e-bay.
Not only great photographers but great people  Jan 8, 2007
I normally do not write reviews but here goes...I find this book very inspiring! Not only to see the works of these wonderful artists, but to gain insight into their craft. This is a great way to see and own these works considering the actual value of their prints. The best aspect of this experience is to see how an artist visualizes their subject which puts you right there with them, which is the best experience for any photographer in training.

I have had the great privilege not only to own some of these works, but to have actually photographed along side Michael Fatali. I have to say that his work goes well beyond what you can see in his images since much of what is recorded in the print was more emotion and spiritual than can be visible in an image. I am a firm believer that art does not stand alone but is always better understood and appreciated within the context of the creator. Therefore getting close to the artist, which a book like this provides, is a great way to help us understand the work in the context of those who created it. If you can get a hold of this book and you love photography or art in general it is a must have!
A Study in photo excellence  Jun 7, 2006
This is an incredible collection of photos from today's master photographers.If that isn't enought , Each artist also gives personal insite to their approach . My personal favorites are the photos by Burkett , Cramer and Fatali.

As one reviewer mentioned earlier , It also has the benefit of comparing the different approaches of the same subject taken by Dykinga and Fatali , One that is a great learning tool within itself since the Fatali photo is also a accident that turned out to be my favorite photo. It shows what is possible using double exposures.

If you are interested in photography and learning by other artist efforts , you will spend a lot of time reading this book. It is money well spent.
