Santa Barbara, CA—April 5, 2011—Though many hikers and climbers carry cameras with them, they often come away feeling disappointed because their images fail to visually translate their experiences. In Remote Exposure (Rocky Nook, $29.95 USD), Alexandre Buisse goes beyond the mere basics of photography and gives you the tools needed to create images that are not only of good technical quality but that are compelling as well.

This book will guide you through the various options for equipment, since the requirement for lightweight gear that is able to withstand cold, adverse weather conditions presents unique challenges. Learn about the importance of having an efficient carrying system and a logical, planned workflow.

Throughout the book you will find advice on where to point your camera and how to compose a strong image. Included are specific requirements for rock climbing, hiking, mountaineering, and camping. More advanced photographic topics are also covered such as digital capture and optimization techniques like high dynamic range imaging (HDRI), panoramic stitching, and how to achieve excellent results without a tripod.

The pages are filled with 100 stunning images captured by Buisse as he hiked and climbed through mountain ranges on four continents. Photographers of all levels and those who just appreciate beautiful images are sure to be inspired by this book.

Foreword by Cory Richards (member of the historic climbing expedition that recently reached the summit of Gasherbrum II in winter).

About the Author

Alexandre Buisse was born in Lyon, France. Growing up there meant frequent trips to the Alps, often to the Chamonix valley, which planted the seeds for his love of the mountains. Ironically, it wasn't until he moved to flat Scandinavia that, pushed by a friend, he took up climbing. He has since traveled and climbed on four continents and in most major world ranges.

Alexandre began taking a serious interest in photography in 2005—just in time for his 20th birthday—and hasn't put his camera down ever since. His initial motivation was to record and share the wonderful views that he encountered while hiking in the French Alps and, later, on his mountaineering expeditions. Though he also shoots in urban environments, his heart decidedly lies with nature and adventure photography.

He currently lives in Denmark, where he is switching careers from academic research to full-time adventure photography; he plans to move back to France soon.
