I have been asked a few times in the past few days about my favorite as well as recommended books. I quickly created an Amazon wish list with some books to help out those that are shopping for a loved one for the holidays. A few are Africa specific, and the rest are photography books. The books below are either educational or inspirational, and I refer back to these books often. If I could own only one photo book on my shelf, I would go for Galen Rowell's Inner Game of Outdoor Photography, hands down. He was an amazing man, educator, mountain climber, conservationist and photographer.
I have added at least a dozen more books in the past few days, after looking at my own bookcase in my home. Some great books that inspire!!
