In a beautiful 200-page PDF downloadable eBook, Photographing Wild is your chance to learn from a photographer who is as hard-working and passionate as he is talented. This book was written to teach you the principles behind the powerful photographs Paul Nicklen makes for the magazine with the iconic yellow borders, National Geographic.

Joined by colleagues and legendary photographers Jimmy Chin, David Doubilet, and Brent Stirton (among others), Paul gives you 16 ways to make stronger photographs, no matter what you photograph or where you photograph it. No gimmicks, no platitudes, and no formulae: just real-world practices to tell better stories and make your images so strong they can’t be ignored.


Techniques of a National Geographic Photographer


National Geographic Photographer Paul Nicklen spends his year making photographs that will change hearts and minds about the world around us. He works for a publication with notoriously high standards, one that frequently reminds their photographers that they can’t publish excuses. This has been his school and he’s become one of the most respected photographers of his generation. With 40% of sales from Photographing Wild going to Sea Legacy to support marine conservation, this is your chance to not only learn from Paul, but to partner with him in keeping the world both beautiful and wild.
