About the Author:

Dan Suzio is a professional wildlife photographer with a special fondness for amphibians, reptiles, and the deserts of the American southwest. He is also known for his photos of the birds and other wildlife of Costa Rica, and of groundbreaking herpetological research in East Timor. He began photographing nature and wildlife more than forty years ago, and has continued refining his approach, always aiming for a simple composition that will capture the spirit of the individual as well as the species. He describes his work as that of a portrait photographer, using the same techniques of lighting, composition, and color to reveal a glimpse of each animal's "personality."

Suzio "has an astounding ability to capture natural situations and spontaneous action while also achieving the artistic composition, color, and sharpness of detail I associate with studio work," says Dan Rademacher, Editorial Director of Bay Nature magazine. Publisher, editor, and photo industry consultant Ann Guilfoyle says that Suzio's images "are marked by a deep fascination with his subject" and invite the viewer to "take a close, involved look."

Since 1978, Dan Suzio's photographs have appeared regularly in a wide variety of books, magazines, and natural history museums.

Review:

A handy reference book that will not only help you get better photographs at Death Valley, but help you develop your eye for wherever you find yourself in the National Park System. --Kurt Repanshek, National Parks Traveler

A helpful guide and an entertaining read, thanks to Suzio's humor and clear-cut style. --Geralee Sullivan, PhotoSource International

Suzio is generous with his hints and tips and even his favorite locations within Death Valley. The book is also packed with awe-inspiring images of the 'I wish I had taken that' type. The point being, you could take that photograph, armed with the knowledge and skill learned within these pages. It is not necessary to go to Death Valley to experiment with wildlife or landscape photography, nor to benefit from Suzio's knowledge and experience. --Mark O'Shea, herpetologist, photographer, author, and TV personality
