Learn to take better pictures in this step-by-step, how-to photography guide filled with tips on lighting, equipment, inspiration, and more.

·      …and even get a behind-the-lens look at Wolfe’s equipment and workflow.

Wolfe is a recipient of the Photographic Society of America's Progress Medal and the coveted Alfred Eisenstaedt Magazine Photography Award, as well as a Lifetime Achievement award by the North American Nature Ph...
