Australia houses a spectacular range of landscapes. From the aquamarine waters of coral reefs to the deep iron-red desert dunes. And from alpine gums in snow to sunbaked savannas - this is a beautiful continent. What better way to experience it than to wander the landscape with a camera?

This Steve Parish Wild Australia Guide discusses the wealth of experiences available to photographers. Packed with how-to information and stunning photographic examples. It also delves into the philosophy behind the passion - make your work fun, while acknowledging it is a serious pursuit.

Clear, personable text leads new photographers, and those in search of new perspectives, through content, mood and design. And techniques such as working efficiently with light, finding natural pattern and changing viewpoint are also featured. The technicalities of equipment are explained clearly. I find that photography is an all-consuming passion - I hope you will be consumed by it too!

Scottish photographer John Thomson (1837-1921) is renowned for his pioneering book Street Life in London, widely regarded as a classic of social documentary and as laying the foundations for today's photojournalism. In a career which also included a series of outstanding photographic portfolios - shot in challenging conditions - documenting life, landscape and architecture in the Far East, followed by a successful studio portraiture business in London, Thomson also took time to translate and edit this edition of Gaston Tissandier's book. First published in 1876, it became a standard reference work of the period, and blends a concise and highly readable history of the invention and development of photography with a uniquely readable account of late 19th century photographic practice, at a time when the making of a single new image could be measured in hours rather than seconds. A History and Handbook of Photography is a classic text providing a detailed and accessible insight into the thinking and working of photographers of the period.


Landscapes Of A New Cultural Economy Of Space

Making sense of new cultural economies, it is argued, needs consistent attention to the resonances of individual lives. Otherwise, a discussion of cultural economies remains suspended in a detached virtualism (Miller, 2000). The idea of the remaking of geographies and cultural economies remains, necessarily, a consistent search to make the subject dynamic in its resonance with the contemporary world. In recent debates concerning the reframing of the cultural economies of geography, there is an evidence of increasing acknowledgement of the overlooked importance of subjectivities within geographical explanation. This has often been difficult when trying to attend to the large scale apparent dynamics of change. The shift of geographies to focus upon cultural economies combines two profound threads that inform this chapter: the acknowledgement of the breadth and inclusivity of what economies are and the refusal mutually to isolate the cultural and the economic. Thus the economic becomes engaged and even framed in relation to the cultural, and vice versa. Such an appraisal makes more robust the limits of 'either - or' claims from these two grounding components of geographical thinking and its representation of the world. These themes are sustained in different ways across the chapters of this book. This chapter seeks to build a critical discourse concerning space, embodied practice and lay knowledge. It does this in order to address the mechanisms through which individuals are engaged in the processes of new cultural economies.
