Outdoor Action and Adventure Photography

Outdoor Action and Adventure Photography by professional adventure sports photographer Dan Bailey is a new title from Focal Press. This book teaches photographers how to think geometrically and how to pull together the elements that make for a successful shot, all while being immersed in the action. “Few styles of shooting bust your photography chops like adventure and action photography,” Bailey says. “You have to be on top of your game, because you might only have one chance to get it right. This kind of shooting requires skill, focus, and confidence, because in a span of split seconds you can do one of three things: miss the shot, get the shot, or actually nail the shot. Which one would you rather do?” The 312-page paperback is available for £21.99/$34.95.

Press Release

Outdoor Action & Adventure Photography – A guide to the most challenging style of photography

It is not just a job or hobby, it is a way of life that demands that you be at the top of your game. Here’s a guide on how to thrive and achieve stunning images.

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.

This book teaches photographers how to think geometrically and how to pull together the elements that make for a successful shot, all while being immersed in the action. The practical manual will improve your technique for creating more compelling adventure imagery, whether you’re shooting ultra-marathoners splattered in mud, rock climbers in a crevasse, or mountain bikers hurtling past you.

“Few styles of shooting bust your photography chops like adventure and action photography. Consequently, this kind of shooting makes you a better photographer. Imagine trying to grab a shot while trying not to be plowed
over by a mountain biker who’s blasting down a rocky hillside at 30 miles per hour. You have to be on top of your game, because you might only have one chance to get it right. This kind of shooting requires skill, focus, and confidence, because in a span of split seconds you can do one of three things: miss the shot, get the shot, or actually nail the shot. Which one would you rather do?”

— Dan Bailey, Author, Adventurer, Pro Photographer

Author Bios:

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.
