“Your book is one of the best ones out there on nature photography because of the explicit captions and I was pleased to feature it.”
Arthur Bleich, Red River Papers


“Just purchased your book, Expressive Nature Photography.  As I was trying to think of a way to express my appreciation for your book and how it is different than other books that I have bought, I realized that it was not only the way you educate how each photo was taken, it is the PASSION that shines through.  Love the book and inspires me to go out and try some of the effects  you describe.” Diane

What people are saying about the books:

Hello, I recently purchased your newest book and wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed reading it. I love the photographs in the book as well as all the tips and suggested self assignments. You did an excellent job with the book.”
Carol J.

“Your book “Extraordinary Everyday Photography” has been inspiring in challenging me to see things locally and around me in a different way! I purchased it a few years ago and find myself referring back to it over and over again. I’m an amateur photographer hoping to eventually get published and even perhaps make a little money through photography one day. I started shooting back in the 80’s when I purchased a Nikon 35mm SLR. I was hooked for life. Thank you for sharing your insight, knowledge and expertise! Your work is awesome!” Mark G.

“I bought your book “Creative Nature & Outdoor Photography” in January of this year, and I loved it so much that I took it with me to Japan, Switzerland (all three times), Amsterdam, and Paris. I’m an amateur and your book greatly helped me in understanding creative photography…” Mohammed T.

“Extraordinary Everyday Photography is a great title for the wonderful pictures we can find ‘along the way’ everywhere. Thank you for writing this so that others can learn to see what wonderful things exist all around us if we open our eyes.” Tom T.

“Your book is truly extraordinary! It’s not another how to do it book. It is about you talking to the reader and sharing what you saw and how and why you took the image in way that you did. It’s very personal and very well written. The pictures with the variety of subject matter are lovely. If ever I had a desire to create a photography book and the talent to do so ,which I have neither, that is the book I would have created.” Elaine B.


Co-authored by pro photographers Brenda Tharp and Jed Manwaring,   Extraordinary Everyday Photography will help you search beyond the surface to find the unexpected wherever you are, be it a downtown street, a local park, or your own front lawn. Authors Brenda Tharp and Jed Manwaring encourage amateur photographers to slow down, open their eyes, and respond to what they see to create compelling images that aren’t overworked. Through accessible discussions and exercises, readers learn to use composition, available light, color, and point of view to create stunning photographs in any environment. Inspiring photo examples from the authors, taken with DSLRs, compact digital cameras, and even iPhones, show that it is the photographer’s eye and creative vision–not the gear–that make a great image.
