About the Book:

The difference between getting the shot and missing the shot comes down to split seconds and how you manage your gear and your technique. In Outdoor Action and Adventure Photography professional adventure sports photographer Dan Bailey shows readers how to react quickly to unfolding scenes and anticipate how the subject and the background might converge. Capturing those significant moments to produce powerful imagery that evoke the feel and mood of adventure requires specialized skills and a wide variety of creative ideas.

Guest Judge: Dan Bailey

Dan Bailey bought his first camera over twenty years ago, and since that time, he’s refined a system for carrying his gear and shooting while hiking, climbing mountains, riding his bike, skiing deep powder, and exploring remote places in the world. In his eighteen years as a working pro adventure photographer, his imagery has been published by a variety of national clients and magazines such as Backpacker magazine, Outside Magazine, National Geographic Adventure, Nikon, Fujifilm, Fox Searchlight Pictures, The North Face, Patagonia, Coleman, Marmot, Rock & Ice, Outdoor Photographer, Digital Photo Pro, Alaska Magazine, and The New York Times.
