The photography books I recommend

If you are a photographer or looking for a gift for a photographer then this list is for you.

One of the biggest perks to expanding your library is the alternate point of view you get from reading another photographers writings. Having a new perspective can inspire you in ways not intended by the author. Reading photography books exercises your brain in ways just shooting cannot.

Learn, Shoot, Repeat.

To get you started, here are some of my favorite photography books:


  • The Creative Digital Darkroom
    Authored by  Katrin Eismann and Sean Duggan. Mrs. Eismann is a well known Photoshop expert and photographer, while Mr. Duggan is a fine art photographer, educator, and Adobe Certified Photoshop Expert. Together they create a well rounded book that is a must for any professional and fantastic for the hobbyist.
  • The Digital Photography Companion
    Written by Derrick Story who also wrote Digital Photography Hacks and Digital Photography Pocket Guide. All three are good reads and recommended.
  • Understanding Exposure 
    Written by Bryan Peterson, Understanding Exposure simplifies exposure in photography. An eye opening read giving the reader a fundamental knowledge.
