Welcome to the Phototips blog. This blog contains extracts from the ground-breaking book series titled Phototips.

Each book in the Phototips collection replicates a mini photographic workshop that’s hands on, practical and highly creative. Whether your speciality is leopards, landscapes or leadwoods, you’ll learn the core rules and how to break them.

The series covers all aspects of nature photography, including how to dodge a lion and burn grass, capture ghosts and entertain ghost crabs, stalk storks and make chameleons smile.

The Van den Bergs have spent decades refining their craft to become internationally recognized photographers – now their hard-earned secrets are all yours in the Phototips series.
