I had two custom bookshelves made just to fit several of my large photo books. It was kind of fun to arrange my books. That right bookshelf cabinet consists of my photography and guide books. The guide books being on the upper left. On the upper right are my “how-to books” which include photography business related topics. On the middle left shelf are books by Sam Abell, William Albert Allard, David Alan Harvey, Eliot Porter and Ansel Adams. Galen Rowell and Gary Crabbe’s books occupy the middle cube on the right. The bottom shelf is a random mix of large photo books including the works of Frans Lanting, David Muench and Philip Hyde.
I thought it would be fun to share my bookshelf and learn about what books other photographers collect. Feel free to share in the comments or post a link in the comments if you would like to do your blog post on the same topic and I’ll link to it in a future post.
