A Few Favorite Nature Photography Books

© Mike Spinak

Just a quick post, today, to share with you a picture of the day, and mention a few of my favorite books of nature photography.



These are books that have moved me, that have influenced me as a nature photographer, that have informed me and reminded me of important things about nature photography, and that have touched me.

Okavango: Africa’s Last Eden by Frans Lanting

The Creation by Ernst Haas

Wildlife by Mitsuaki Iwago

Colorado II by David Muench

Mountain Light by Galen Rowell

The Place No One Knew: Glen Canyon on the Colorado by Eliot Porter

Chased By The Light: A 90-Day Journey by Jim Brandenburg


(This is an incomplete list. I’ll come back and add more, over time.)

Find these books, if you can. You won’t regret it.

What are some of your favorites?
