Don't Leave Home Without It


Adventure photography couldn’t be simpler. At least that’s how Michael Clark makes it seem in his how-to book Adventure Photography: Capturing the World of Outdoor Sports ($24.95, The 15-year veteran has shot everything from yoga to surfing to expedition races, and in this book documents every detail of the who, what, when, where, why, and how of each sport. The detailed descriptions of his photographic equipment and outdoor gear, down to the water bottle and pen, are super helpful, and he covers every aspect of adventure photography from beginning to end. For all this, the 200-plus-page, full-size, full-color book is more like a coffee table art book than an instructional manual. With bonus interviews with photographer Corey Rich and photo editor Sabine Meyer, it’s a must for anyone who is remotely interested in adventure photography. — JE
