Regular readers will know I was based in New Hampshire for 20 years and spent a great deal of time working in the White Mountains. And though I'm now in Southeast Idaho, I return to the Granite State regularly. Beautiful in all seasons, there's something especially magical about autumn in my old neck of the woods. While wonderful color can be found in many places across the United States at that time of year, I've never seen anything that tops the "show" my adoptive home state puts on in early October.

If you're planning a trip to northern New England (specifically the mountains of New Hampshire) to see and photograph the spectacular foliage, I'd like to help you get the most out of your visit. Especially if this will be your first time in the area, wouldn't you rather concentrate on shooting instead of losing precious hours trying to figure out where to go, when you should be there, and how to best traverse an unfamiliar area? 

To that end, I've written a photographer's guide to autumn in the Whites: it's available at This ebook is a compilation of prime locations from which you can capture the stunning beauty for which the region is famous. You'll find out how to get to each site (including both directions and coordinates), when you can expect the best light, nuances about each spot, and other tips to help you get the most out of your visit. Having this logistical information in hand will free you to focus on your creative vision and make successful images. 

If you’re planning your first photography trip to the Granite State, this guide will broadly acquaint you with the area and enable you to maximize your time. If you’re returning, perhaps you’ll discover locations you missed previously, or be inspired to view these landscapes in a different way.

Don't have a Kindle? Not to worry. You can read the book on your smartphone, tablet, or computer.
