About the Author:

Tom Grimm and Michele Grimm are freelance photographers and writers who have traveled throughout the United States and 135 other countries as a husband-and-wife team taking photos and gathering material for books, websites, magazines, newspapers, and corporate clients.
 
The Grimms' popular how-to photography books include their latest guide, THE BASIC BOOK OF DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY, and THE BASIC BOOK OF PHOTOGRAPHY, now in its 5th edition and a best-seller for more than 44 years. Both are published by Penguin/Plume. In addition, the couple has written and illustrated three other photography books, as well as three travel guides. Their photographs also have illustrated six childrens' books.
 
Michele and Tom maintain a stock photo library of more than 150,000 digital images and color transparencies taken on every continent during their global travels and assignments. Their photographic work is represented worldwide by the Alamy.com stock photo agency.
 
The Grimms are longtime members of the Society of American Travel Writers (SATW), where Tom served as president in 1992-93. Their other professional memberships include the Authors Guild, the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP), the American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA), and the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ).
 
Tom studied at Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois, where he received a bachelor's degree in Journalism and a master's degree in Speech. Michele studied Art at Miami-Dade Junior College in Florida. In addition to traveling more than five years in motor homes on photographic odysseys throughout North America, the couple has lived in Bend, Oregon, the Florida Keys, and Laguna Beach and San Clemente in Southern California. Most recently they have settled on the Gulf Coast of Florida near Sarasota.
