Thanks for writing the ebook, really enjoying it, so clear and helpful and inspiring!


Todd and Sarah Sisson are two of my favourite landscape photographers and in this superb ebook, they'll reveal the secrets behind their wonderful photos. Over 130 pages, it combines tutorials, field guides and technical advice, using the beautiful scenery of New Zealand as a backdrop. An informative and attractive ebook that's highly recommended for anyone wanting to improve their landscape photography! Well worth the price.

Just a quick note to tell you that I have thoroughly enjoyed and learned so much from this ebook. Your images are stunning - and are exactly the kind of style that I am hoping to be able to portray someday soon. Your writing style is also clear and funny.

While my local landscapes here in Cape Town, South Africa are a bit different to yours (very little snow), they are just as dramatic. I would love to be able to capture them as dramatically as you do.

I got this eBook first thing this morning and have spent the rest of the day reading, dreaming and then taking an impromptu short road trip into the mountains outside of the town where I live to practice my landscape photography. I can’t thank you enough for the motivation and teaching to improve my work!” – Brenda Mason “I love this eBook. It is so cool to learn from people like Todd. I can’t wait to use what I have learned today by reading it. I have so many new ideas!

This ebook will tell you where you’re going wrong, and how to fix it. It teaches you what to look for in a perfect landscape, so more of your own images will have that ‘wow’ factor.

We would recommend Todd and Sarah’s book to any knowledge-hungry photographer that wants not just to take landscape pictures, but make them, nurture them, and do justice to the beauty of the natural world.”  — “This ebook is an extremely valuable resource that almost any landscape photographer would benefit from, whether the casual novice with a point and shoot camera to the established pro and everyone in between.  I can’t recommend it highly enough.
