Award-winning photographer Nick Rains travels Australia with his camera, capturing the country's diverse landscapes and many moods. With this second edition including five additional touring regions, Australia: The Photographer's Eye displays Rains's stunning images of over 30 regions around the country. For each region there's also touring information and a map that pinpoints the best spots from which to capture your own images. In the photo tips section at the back of the book, Rains shares his knowledge of photography, discussing the techniques and skills he has gained over many years, and clearly explains how to successfully photograph landscapes from small-detail shots through to panoramas.
Nick Rains has been a professional photographer for over 25 years, starting off in the UK with sports and commercial work before moving to Australia in 1990. Since then he has specialised in travel and landscape work, crisscrossing the country on assignments for many large book and calendar publishers including Explore Australia, Penguin and Australian Geographic. Nick enjoys packing up his trusty 4WD and heading off into the wilderness for weeks at a time, driving tens of thousands of kilometres and camping out under the stars in a never ending quest for the perfect light. This book is a distillation of the most photogenic places Nick has visited-places he hopes will inspire you as much as they did him.
